A few years ago, we created Wanderfly to make the online travel experience more personal, fun and beautiful. From a dinner conversation idea, to a dozen employees crammed in a Soho/Brooklyn loft, to being honored as a top 10 startup, it has been a crazy few years. In 2012, TripAdvisor acquired Wanderfly so that millions of travelers around the world could find the same travel inspiration and recommendations that Wanderfly fans already enjoyed. We're so proud to say that what started as a spontaneous "why not?"
The principle is simple and seductively clever: solar lights that store energy during the day and release light at night. These can be purchased ready-made in a variety of colors (yellow, blue and red) but they can also be built at home. A simple, less-technical approach involves buying a conventional solar-powered yard lamp and then essentially harvesting it for key pieces to put in a jar. This is simply a way of taking an existing solar lamp design and appropriating its parts to make something more attractive for display around a house or home.

I love the way the cherry trees outside my building bloom cheerfully each Spring. I wanted to bring the beauty of those cherry blossoms indoors so I made some out of tissue paper and to make them even more special I added LEDs These pretty lights are inexpensive and easy to make.
