Chinese Red Lantern

OHere we go again! The lantern in the family room area is being changed—yet again. The first carriage lantern was hung temporarily just to have light in the room. Black and just a little large for the space, we changed that lantern about a year ago for the white version that is being relocated now.

Both of these lanterns have found new homes, the first one is now located in my editor’s mountain home and the second one moved to the master bedroom in Atlanta. This beautiful Chinese red lantern was spotted by Keven Hawkins at Boxwoods, in Atlanta, and immediately put on hold for me. As soon as the hold tag went on, six women were waiting to purchase it according to Boxwoods. I think this lantern is what we needed all along—third time is the charm!
