This is one of those things I come across that I wish I'd "invented" first. It's so simple, so timeless, so aesthetically pleasing.... colorful candy-like yarn-encircled balls of light on a string c/o la case de cousin paul (cousin paul's cabin). And since you pick your own color combinations they could conceivably work anywhere, from monochromatic interiors to balls-out eye popping. Pun intended. My friend recently enlisted me to help her spruce up her admittedly dark abode, and I think these are just the ticket. I'm already working on her to pick up a string or two. Even with international shipping, it looks like a string of 35 will cost you about $80 stateside. Not too shabby for a unique and versatile pick-me-up.
