light My Retro Christmas lights

These lights are ones from the 50s (I think). They belonged to my Grand parents but when they had a clear out, I grabbed them! I love the colours and shapes of the bulbs. I run them on a plug in dimmer thing so the blubs will last longer.



There's more on my flickr and they're 1680x1050 so big enough for wallpaper! http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpc101/5266078163/

Glad you all like them! In case you think they're huge, the bulbs are only an inch long, I've just got a good macro camera!
