Sure, you could spend buckets of money on fancy lanterns for your garden. Or you could drive on down to the local thrift store and pick up a few milk glass vases and teacups for a couple dollars each. They make the nicest glow when you add votive candles. Place them on top of fence posts or create a grouping of different styles on your picnic table. They’re sturdy and easy to clean (I just pop mine in the dishwasher when they start to get grungy), and they look fantastic.

    I felt a sense of serenity just viewing the milk glass photos. This is a wonderful creative idea!

    Apparently, magic in the garden doesn't have to come from the plantings.
