The sun goes down early this time of the year. Probably no need to mention this because - speaking from my own experience - a lot of people tend to complain about the early nightfalls. To help the whining crowd out of their misery: try the circle of light. Nothing new or revolutionary, just a simple DIY project. (Click here for more blogging about light therapy.)
All you need is a rotan plate, jam jars (various sizes) and candles.
Go for colour and the problem of winter greyness is resolved all at once as well.
P.S. How do you brighten up your home during autumn/winter?
