How can we get outdoor lighting with no power?

Here's the dilemma… we'd love to make more use of our large balcony — except there's no power outlet out there, or even lights above. It gets pretty dark out there, so we havent really made much use of the space at night which is a shame. We've run extension cords for power before, but it would be cool if any of the Offbeat Homies have got better ideas for lighting up the balcony!

Help me repurpose my old Moroccan lamps!

Can anyone suggest a quick, cheap fix for these Moroccan lamps? I'm not nearly as crafty as I would like to be and the silk surrounding the shades is so dry and brittle it tears easily if you attempt to clean it. I would however, like to maintain a spicy feel to them. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
