Kinda have a thing for these things. Whether they are turned on or not. This vintage crush goes back to when I was a little girl. My grandparents, where I spent every Christmas Eve, would decorate the 2 big evergreen bushes in their front yard with these. I loved pulling into their home on Christmas Eve & being welcomed by those colorful lights. So last year when we were going through my Grandma's home finding a box of old vintage light bulbs she saved when such a treasure! So glad I grabbed them & now show them off during the Holidays. They don't glow anymore but they sure do SHiNE! I display them in an old dump truck. It was just begging for a cute load to haul around.
|-Precious cargo, some of the bulbs I got from my Grandma's house-|
|-Would you just look at those colors & the patina on those bulbs. You can't buy them like this anymore. They saw a lot of good Christmas' I'm sure & brought a lot of JoY!-|
So glad we use the throw back vintage colored big, bulbed lights outside our home each year. The child in me jumps up & down every year when they get turned on for the first time or when we turn down our street & I can see their glow. I think they will always be my favorite Christmas color combo.
Question of the day- What do you have light on your house & trees outside? If so what kind? Are you a vintage colored person or white lights?
