Hope you are well.....last night we got to see Paul Simon perform (got there late but boy is his voice amazing)! It was a fundraiser at the beautiful Plaza Hotel, I must say I love any kind of political events because you get there early and leave early (sounding like an old lady or what)? The Plaza though it looked beautiful has changed so much...kind of sad to see an iconic hotel lose some of its lustre. The famed Oak Bar gone. After a well reported fight with rental agents and new tenants. But seriously Paul Simon's voice is so beautiful......really natural and smooth. La la la la  li......

Yes I mean hurricane lanterns not the storms:) I loooove hurricanes and have several pair and believe you can never have too many, case in point would be one look around my own home, on my dining room table, console tables, out on the patio, in my living room......they are everywhere! So after popular demand, I am now carrying the gorgeous ones I have abundantly in my own home on my online shop! When trying to to put together a vignette, a single or pair of hurricanes is a great place to start. They give height, texture, and lets not underestimate the beautiful lighting they give off when they are lit with candles. In addition they double as flower vases and great seasonal decorative objects, which can be filled with fall leaves, acorns, pinecones and seashells. Yes....hurricanes are a good thing!

Today I am featuring many different interiors that show you how beautiful hurricanes look in virtually any kind of room, in almost any setting. Do you like the look?
Now let's take a look at  hurricanes in action, shall we.......
