Evening Light

Timers are my best friend. All over our house I have lamps and little lights set on timers. Makes my life so much easier to have them click on in the evening and click themselves off at night. It also means our house looks lived in when we are not home and a light is on when we come home after dark.

Here are a few from around my house last night.

I love little lights on in our home at night too. Not an overhead fan. Unfortunately I have to turn on and off all my little lights at night. Do you have plug in timers on yours? Just curious!

Hi Elaine, I always love seeing your home and decor. We too have lights that come on at night-whether we are here or not. Yours are so cute though. I love each area you've shared, you've got a wonderful sense of style.
Happy Mother's Day.

I love the soft amber glow of lights in the evening. Although mine are not on timers, I have several in all areas of the house.
Hey, I notice that little sewing machine in your second picture I think. I have one almost exactly like it. It was my Nana's as a girl. She actually sewed on it. I have the instructions and everything. I keep it on display in my sewing room!
Have a great Friday!!

I love the glow coming from your little lights. You are so smart to put them on a timer, so you're not always scrambling behind things to turn them on and off. I don't know why I never thought of that. This is why I read blogs!

This is a great idea and one I have not thought of for when we are away. Your lights give off a wonderful glow.

NanaDiana said...

Lovely. I have a small one that flickers that stays on all the time and one that comes on at dusk. You ave taken it to a whole different level. GREAT idea! xo Diana

Lottie said...

I set up timers for the lights in the winter months but for some reason take them off in summer. I shouldn't. I need to reset them for the later evening. Thank you for this post to remind me of the beauty of the evening!

I love your soft evening lights and is there any special type of timer you use. I've never used timers but I think I will now! So cozy!

Susanne said...

I have 2 timers and use them when we are away from home for over night or that rare vacation. Good idea to use them daily. Love how your lights give a warm glow to your home.
Happy Mother's Day weekend!

I've used timers on lamps throughout our home for years. I hate to walk into a totally dark house!

Love your lights!
