Last night as we sat out on our deck eating dinner, I was admiring our new tiki lamps and thinking that it’d been a while since I reported back on various items to let you know what I think.
First and foremost: Getting these solar tiki lamps for $30 was a great deal. My husband installed them all around our deck and they look great. I’m sad that they’re made of plastic, because the lights themselves are really cool (not only do they really look like flickering flames, they’re LEDs so theoretically they’ll last forever). I don’t know how the plastic is going to hold up to the sun and heat here, but right now I’m really pleased with them. Hopefully the price will dip again.
I finally got my free pearls from Overstock this weekend. They’re nice, especially since they were free. I know a lot of you received broken strands (and please do contact customer service if that happened to you), but mine are fine.
I’ve got my Dale & Thomas $20 gift card here on my desk… not sure yet what I’ll spend it on. Teacher gifts, most likely.
And last but not least: After picking up this ice cream maker for some insanely low price a while back (my trusty ice cream maker was cracked in my move, grrrr), I finally used it to make strawberry sorbet a few days ago. The fact that the base turns while the paddle stays stationary freaked me out at first, but the results were delicious.
