A Little Bit of Light | Steady Warm White LED Fairy Lights

I postponed this because I was hesitant to put it up due to everything that was happening in this country, but as time passed I realized that showing a little bit of light is alright.  A little bit of light dispels the darkness and lifts sadness.  Dad bought me one long string (I think it’s about 10-15 feet) of LED Warm White fairy lights for my room the other day and with some invisible magic scotch tape I put the lights up loosely around my bleached/refinished antique dresser and with the excess taped a heart shape around my light switches.  He got me the type with clear wiring so that the string is more or less invisible at night against light colored furniture, they also come with forest green wiring for Christmas trees but I requested clear.  I purposely did not tape the lights in a taut/tight boring edge-to-edge outline and art directed them loosely for a vine effect.

This is how it looks in the daytime.  Of course I don’t have the lights on during the day, just for show and tell.

My Dad bought the single string of  steady warm white LED Lights for Php499 from ACE Hardware he said.  I mentioned on Instagram a few weeks ago that I totally detested this antique vanity dresser when it was in dark cherry wood varnish.  Before in a dark finish it looked like something out of a provincial Filipino horror movie, I’d freak myself out seeing my reflection walk past in the mirror.  However, when Mom finally had the dresser bleached and refinished it totally changed how I saw it and adding the string of LED fairy lights instantly brought a sacred sort of ambience  into the room.  The lights provide a dim but warm glow which is also perfect for when Mom has our dear massage lady over once in awhile and since the lights are LED they’re safe to use as night lights (which I don’t really need but like) when I sleep through the night, it’s easier to make my way to the restroom in the middle of the night when it’s not completely dark.  I also have more mental clarity now when I think or pray in the evening.  It makes a really nice background for videos don’t you think? *Hint hint*

 

Speechless Sunday | Yolanda

JEREMIAH 23: 1-4 “Doom to the shepherd-leaders who butcher and scatter my sheep!” God’s Decree. “So here is what I, God, Israel’s God, say to the shepherd-leaders who misled my people: ‘You’ve scattered my sheep. You’ve driven them off. You haven’t kept your eye on them. Well, let me tell you, I’m keeping my eye on you, keeping track of your criminal behavior. I’ll take over and gather what’s left of my sheep, gather them in from all the lands where I’ve driven them. I’ll bring them back where they belong, and they’ll recover and flourish. I’ll set shepherd-leaders over them who will take good care of them. They won’t live in fear or panic anymore. All the lost sheep rounded up!’ God’s Decree.”
