          I use rubber gloves for so many different things, it's almost hard to keep up after all these years. I keep them in my kitchen and in my craft room. In the kitchen they are handy not just for cleaning. I use well fitting gloves for lots of food prep. They REALLY come in handy when I make guacamole and need to cut up jalapeno peppers. Using rubber gloves when deseeding and chopping them saves me from screaming in agony later on when I touch my eyes!

          In my craft room I wear them for pouring resins, adding wax to a piece of furniture, and painting. I use them so much that I have become sort of a snob when it comes to good gloves, and how they fit. If they are too tight, it's hard to move your hands around easily. If they are too big, you run the risk of cutting yourself when using knives.
          these gloves fit extremely well, and the quality of the glove gives me confidence that I won't be putting my hand through it when I'm putting them on.
          Good choice....

          Thanks in part to a certain decorating show on TV, that brought "Farmhouse" decor not only to the forefront, but proved to the world that homes didn't need to have uber expensive finishes to look well put together. And galvanized metal is just one of those finishes that has just taken the decorating world by storm in the last 5 years. It's always been out there, but it's hard to argue about how we see it literally everywhere these days.

          Thanks in part to a certain decorating show on TV, that brought "Farmhouse" decor not only to the forefront, but proved to the world that homes didn't need to have uber expensive finishes to look well put together. And galvanized metal is just one of those finishes that has just taken the decorating world by storm in the last 5 years. It's always been out there, but it's hard to argue about how we see it literally everywhere these days.
          I got both sizes being offered in these lanterns. They look amazing both together and singular. The pretty lanterns can certainly shine on their own accord. I got both to use as a centerpiece to my Thanksgiving table. I like that I can use either real flame candles or LED fake flame candles and they will both look spectacular. I'm just a old school lover of how real candles look, and these lanterns with their glass windows, will keep all of my dinner guests safe from the open flame should I choose to go with the real candles.
          These lanterns are not only pretty, they are extremely well made. And the best part is once the holiday is over, they don't have to be packed up and put away! I can use them for Christmas and then use them anywhere in or around my home, where they will go perfectly with whatever other decor is already there. They are simply, a classic as far as I'm concerned!

          It's hard to argue about how popular galvanized metal has become over the last five years! The recent climb of "Farmhouse" decor, has helped galvanized metal just explode in popularity in a massive way! The best part about galvanized metal items, is that you can add them to just about ANY decor scheme to dress it up or down.
          I got these two lanterns (I also got the matching 14" size), to use in my Thanksgiving day table centerpiece. We are hosting dinner for the first time in years, so I want it to be special - and I do believe that these lanterns will do exactly that.

I love that I can put a candle inside and not have to worry about an open flame being dangerous to those that are sitting closer to it. But at the same time, I can use a newer fake flame candle and you'd probably never know the difference!
          The lanterns are just beautiful - they are a perfect weight, and are made very well. These are going to be a hit, I just know it. The best part is that after the holiday is over, I can use these beautiful lanterns in a multitude of areas where they will compliment each and every one of them!

Because this color brings in the slightest hue of gold, and yellow, it gives the homeowner the ability to not only add another color in trims, but the ability to mix their "metals" in their kitchen and bath as well.

          I was very happily surprised when I opened these pulls. I do admit to being skeptical to the newest metal color being offered by many of the home decor suppliers = "Silver Champagne". The name descriptor of "Silver Champagne", really is the absolute perfect descriptor for this color too! It is a beautiful ever so pale pale hint of gold on the background of brushed silver. It actually gives one the ability to use more mixed metals within their decor scheme in whatever room they are doing.

It hooks up to the Ring stick-up camera with a USB micro cable that can keep the camera charged with just a few hours of daylight. The Ring solar panel unit is weather resistant, making it suitable for most climates.

          It doesn't need anything but sunlight! Just make sure that your solar panel is in a good location to get at least six hours of sunshine per day - the cord length that is included is more than ample (in most cases) for you to be able to most likely be able to position your camera just about anywhere you may need it.

          I don't believe so. I've looked over the description and nothing in the wording nor the visuals shows them being used in an outdoor setting. However, I looked up their toll free number where you can definitely ask the company - this way they can point you in the right direction if they are not compatible for outdoor use.

          will these work with a Mesh WIFI network. The problem I have been reading about is that these lights only work on 2.4ghz and wont connect to 5 ghz. A mesh network such as netgears ORBI autoslects the fastest speed that is closest to what you are trying to connect (usually 5 ghz). If this is the case will lights conect to wifi?
