First off for my Friday Favorites today I want to share the Solar Powered String Lights I found and we just installed on our back patio.
- In a 1950’s home we are lacking in some areas such as closet space and exterior plugs. So my dream of having String Lights on our patio was not very likely going to happen. Unless I wanted to have an extension cord going through a window or pay a lot of money to have a plug installed. I was so thrilled when I came across THESE Solar Powered String Lights while shopping one day. I knew this would be the perfect solution!
Shop other String Lights that are Solar Powered-
We bought wood poles at Home Depot and spray painted them a color that was close to our deck paint. Then we just attached the wood pole to the back of the deck.
Added tiny hooks to the top of the wood poles to attach the String Lights to. I loved that these Solar Powered String Lights hook together so I only needed one solar power box at one end.

- I shared how much I liked THIS shirt I am wearing (while staring at my watermelon:)) a couple Friday Favorites back. A couple people asked me to share it on once I got it. I really was impressed with the quality for under $20!
- THIS shirt is only $15 for linen and one of my favorite patterns it was a no brainer. I just ordered it and can’t wait to get it! (Same company as the shirt I am wearing in picture).
- Ok THESE sandals are PERFECT! They have a tiny heel so they look great with shorts or skirts for summer.
- What do you think of ladders for decor? I personally like them best in bathrooms to hang towels in a causal way or dry swim suits. They really are a unique way to change up your typical towel rack. I came across THESE Metal Ladders such a good price!
- I watched an Instagram story from The Faux Martha about non-stick pans. I had just bought non-stick pans and I thought they were going to be perfect. But I think it was the user who ruined them. Below are the tips she gave. And I just ordered THESE non-stick pans based off of the reviews and great price.
- She said that you should never heat non-stick pans too hot. Find the magic temperature. I have played around with mine and it is about exactly on medium heat, not anything over it or I burn my food and the pan.
- You should always heat up the pan before cooking anything in it. She likes to use butter when she cooks her eggs- she just does a little bit and said that you are supposed pour the eggs right where the butter is “pooling”. Or if you use olive oil do the same thing.
- Also I learned to check your pan’s oven heat tolerance. For instance the pans I ordered you can’t put in an oven over 350 degrees.
Have a wonderful weekend friends. Hope it is filled with lots of watermelon, the food of summer, surrounded by String Lights!
