  8. I love these images. Maybe it's the romantic in me, but I've always thought paper lanterns and fairy lights add a bit of magic to your life; they make everything sparkle and glow.

    Also, I loved your comment about the Tibetan monks making detailed mandalas and then brushing them away...such a beautiful concept.

  9. Gorgeous pictures! Wow!

  10. Everyone one needs a magical canopy of light, it reminds me of the dens my mother would make me when I was little. So magical. Now I want to go and hang millions of fairy lights up. Gorgeous pics x

  11. Oh, how do you find those amazing photos! I could watch them for hours! I love the play of candle light on a quiet summer evening.

  12. you always find the most amazing pictures... there's just something magical and beautiful about lights... or maybe anything that sparkles :) I couldn't stop staring at the first picture!
