If left to our own devices, we just know that we'd use up every plug in the house for lamps and clocks and not have any other appliances. We have no resistance to things that tick or light up. But, of course, the next best thing to buying them all is talking you into buying them. We think these quasi-Moroccan Turquoise Cathedral Lanterns ($8-$15) are beautiful, and that they'd be perfect for an enclosed patio if you happen to have such a thing. If not, they'd be nice as accent lights in a living room.
