It has been a long time since I did a new Blog Post. Maybe June? I just have been out of the moood. I have gotten several comments lately from other bloggers saying they missed my blog post, so I am trying to get back into it a little. I am not promising anything, but a least I will do this one. I am not decorating for Christmas this year because I am going to be out of town. I am spending a few days with my favorite Niece, we are going to shop, cook, eat and re-arrange her house. I am excited to be doing something a little different, for a change.
I am a good person to buy toys. I don't mean real toys, but things I like to play with. I was in the Dollar Store getting some Dog food, for Ms. Sissy Dog, and I could not resist going through the Christmas Decoration section. I don't know why, except, I just couldn't help myself. I found these fun little LED batter operated Lights. I bought several sets. I thought they were fun and new. Since then I have been told they have been around for awhile. What can I say. I am slow and behind times. I don't use electric lights at Christmas at my house. I try to do a 19th Century Christmas and use only candles. M
Here is how they come. They cost a whole $3.00 a set and take 2 AA batteries. They cost another $3.00, funny isn't it. They come in color or clear. The color ones are very pretty and bright.
I don't have to use these lights only for Christmas. I think they would be fun for other times of the year as well. I really didn't do them up proper, as I am lazy. I just kinda draped them here and there for the effect. I could do a much better job and hide the wires with greenery, tinsel or ribbon.
I think they would be fun on My Doll House, maybe next year!
Next year, if I really decorate, I promise to do better. I can just think of all kind of fun things to do with them. I am going to hook a set to Sissy Dogs Collar Christmas and I will send a picture of that latter.
I really like the colored ones. The colors are very intense. I will turn these on during the season as I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This is my kitchen mantle with all the English Staffordshire figures.
I like the clear lights in my Italian Tin Flower Urns. They are 18th century and were used for funerals and a on church alters when fresh flowers were no available. They are some of my favorite things. I hope a few of you stop by and please leave a comment so I will know that you did, Let me know so I can see if I should start this up again. I have been looking at your blogs and promise to keep it up and get back in the habit of leaving comments soon. Merry Christmas to all of you and I look forward to hearing from you all soon. Please come any time, I will leave the Battery Operated lights on and Sissy Dog will always meet you with a jump and a kiss.
