good-lite

Happy Wednesday!
This week has been quite busy, and I can't believe how close we are to Christmas! I truly love this time of year, and only wish it went a little slower. I finished my Christmas quilt last night, and when I wanted to take photos of it this morning, it was dark and rainy outside. So, hopefully the sun will shine later this week for me to take a few to show you. 
Awhile back I bought this sweet Good-Lite Christmas light set at an estate sale. When taking out my Christmas goodies to decorate, I thought I would plug them in and see if they worked! Well...
 They do!! So neat! It is a small strand of 6 pretty bulbs that I hung on my vintage coat rack. 
 They only get turned on for a few minutes when I want to look at them, because I don't trust leaving them on all day. They do make me so happy, and wishing I had more! 
If you are still shopping for last minute gifts, I am having a little Christmas sale in my shoppe before I take a break for the holidays!!
Wishing you all a cozy and creative day!!

I am linking up with the sweet Sue of It's A Very Cherry World for Rednesday! Head over to see more Christmas reds!

  1. LOVE the vintage lights! I actually have a couple of sets but didn't really think of actually USING them in anyway!! I think I may need to break out my vintage Mickey Mouse/Noma lights and see how they light up :)

  2. Very sweet Heather! I don't trust my vintage lights either. I have a strand around my mantle. I never walk off and leave them on! Too scary! Merry Christmas to you!

    1. Oh fun! It doesn't have a date because all the pages are missing. Maybe 50's? They are such sweet characters! xo Heather

  4. I love the graphics on those old boxes of lights as much as the lights themselves! The names are usually pretty good, too. Good idea to not leave them on all day, I think!

  7. Well, as long as it's the "Good Lite Set" you can plug 'em in. I wouldn't want you to burn the house down with the bad lite set which is also 55 years old!

  12. Merry Christmas, Heather! I, too, wish the season would pass a little more slowly. Every year I say that I'm going to make things all year long....and, then, suddenly...It's December again.
    I love Christmas and all the lights, Christmas services, packages, family, children...sewing, fudge...Oh...You name it! I love it all!!!
    Blessings to you, my sweet friend,
    Carolynn xoxo

  13. Hi Heather...
    what great old Christmas lights.
    I remember having that same kind, as a kid.
    Guess that makes me old to.....yep.
    For whatever reason, we had one pink bulb.
    I would lay under the tree and look up at the lights and try to spot the pink bulb.
    With the lights on, and the tinsel hung, everything always looked so magical.

    Enjoy this wonderful Christmas season, and all the magic that it holds.

  15. It has been a busy week..and I have missed a couple of days of blogging with all of the Christmas goings on! When we moved to our town just over eight years ago the streets were decorated with lights that must have been made in the fifties...huge round ones shaped like light bulbs they were. They have only just replaced them..a pity really 'cos the old ones had such character, though I suppose they got to the stage that the bulbs couldn't have been replaced.

  19. I love the graphics on old Christmas boxes and have picked up several boxes of old lights just for them. I never have plugged them in before but you got me thinking that I should try them out. I love the Santa Paint Book! So dang cute:-)

  21. Hello sweet Heather! I can't believe how close we are to Christmas either! Like you, I wish it would slow down! I love Christmas and it goes by too quickly! The Santa Claus paint book is adorable! You have the sweetest vintage pretties! Love your lights too. I am so glad you can enjoy them. I wonder if they could be rewired, so they would be safer? Your home is so lovely sweetie! How kind of you to offer a discount in your lovely shop! I love everything in it! You are so creative and talented dear friend! Have a wonderful evening! Lots of love, Paula xoxo

  22. Your Christmas lights are darling displayed on the rack. I like the little red beads on them and you have the original box too - sweet! I have an old strand that I have been lighting but I need to find some replacement twinkling bulbs. Enjoy these last days before Christmas.

  24. Love the paint book!!

    I have found a few sets of vintage lights, but I don't use them anymore, they just get too hot. I use the boxes for decoration though.
