A Slow Twinkle!

It started out with just a few little twinkling lights in the living room.  I thought it would help to cheer up the place a bit as we've been having a lot of dark and rather dreery days here in the hinterlands of northern Wisconsin.  Well, one string led to another.  Soon the slow twinkle I had initially planned turned into kind of a Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation sort of thing as I untangled yet another string of mini lights!

Around the double patio doors in the living room.... yep... they have the little mechanism that you control to make them twinkle real fast or my favorite a nice SLOW twinkle! 

Another string found it's way into a wool cupboard in the studio!

More little twinkies on a pine cone wreath!  Deck the Halls!!

I was having fun with my roll of packaging tape ( used to attach the  lights)  and more lights around some shelves in the shop/studio... Fa La La La La~  LOL!

I have to say it's helped brighten up the joint!  No more dark days around the Red House Wool Studio. No siree! We're all lit up like a Christmas tree! 

After all... "Tis the Season"!!

  1. Cathy,
    Hubbies pic of the owl is beautiful!!!
    I love white lights (but not the new ones that emit such a "cold" color) and I don't think you can have too many.
    Hugs :)

  2. Cathy, Belated Happy Thanksgiving...What a wonderful photo your husband captured...Love...love...love... tiny white lights...the more the merrier...Enjoy!

  3. Let's hear it for the lights! We are not having a tree this year so I am also lighting up the place. Peace and lights be with you.

  4. 'Merry and bright..." popped into my mind when I read your post.
    It's just the right touch for the long winter evenings. I see you've already gotten lots of snow. But it looks so warm and inviting in your home.
    Happy holidays!

  5. Love it I have put up a couple of things but we need to get moving.
    the holiday is so quick .

  6. Gorgeous! Now you have me in the mood to decorate! :-)

  7. Love the view of that snow, & the lights definitely make everything look so cozy! Beautiful : )

  8. You are so cute, made me smile. Love the Twinkle of lights and more lights. Looks so pretty, cozy and soothing at the same time. Blessings Francine.

  9. I love all of the lights. I put up my tree two weeks ago so I could have the lights. I will be doing that starting next week. It does help keep the blues away as it starts to stay dark all day.
    Have a lovely evening, it looks so pretty.

  10. Love those twinkle lights and the owl is magnificent!

  11. It's dark down here in New York, too, Cathy. I need to put up some lights. Your home looks great -- warm and festive. And, I, too, love your husband's photo of the owl. Happiest of Holidays to both of you. Sarah

  12. So sorry winter has hit fast, hard and early up there. In north Florida, we have had 3 days of hard freezes but lots of chilly days. Love all the twinkles throughout your house. Might put up my door wreath today. Your place looks so festive!! trisha
