Christmas Lights –

Who doesn’t love fairy lights? I have a little collection scattered around my home to not only brighten up the place but to add a little cozy feel at the end of the day and Christmas is no different, if anything I am worse at Christmas time because if anything lights are more available in stores and are often a lot cheaper too!

This year the lights on my tree and around my room have a retro feel to them, I found them on amazon as I was looking for something I remember from my childhood and what my nan and grandma used, the only thing that is missing besides them, is those delightful foil decorations that stretch across the ceiling.

This photo is a house where my mum lives, each year this family and a few others on their street attempt to ‘out do’ one another with the lights and while I have heard others utter the tackiness of them, I love it.. people getting into the spirit of decorating and here in Harlow one man does up his entire house for charity which has now become a bit of a ‘tourist’ spot.

Its always amazing the amount of smiles and happiness the humble fairy light can bring.

Until next time

    I’m all for tacky outdoor Christmas lights. I keep saying to Bradley “next year when we move I want the best Christmas lights on the street!”. Luckily he’s an electrician so he’s very excited at this thought! An electrician has got to have the best lighting display, am I right?!
    Much love, Caitylis x x

    I love it when houses are covered in lights, it’s so pretty! I would definitely do it to mine if it didn’t cause a huge electric bill x

    Where my nana lives there are a couple of streets that go all out with the Christmas lights and we used to go and see what they had done every year!
