sent me a delightful set of lights, the 100
Cool White LED Cone Lights, which are currently available to buy for £20.00
(reduced from £40.00) on their website.
I must admit I prefer Christmas lights to be
white, I do not like them to be multicoloured, I think white is more crisp and
reminds me of snow. But I think lots of
colours remind me of a disco! Having
said that everyone has a different vision for Christmas and I love seeing all
the takes on it when you walk around the estate and see everyone’s
decorations in the window or the trees peeking through the curtains.
I do not look forward to adding the lights to the tree as I wrap around and
around again I get more than a little bored!
But not this time I was too keen to see what the pretty pinecones would
like when they were lit up.
end result was lovely although I do think they would be better suited for use
in a window so the light is the complete focus rather than having the effect
diluted by all the Christmas tree trimmings. It
seems a shame for such fabulous lights to have to share the limelight with the
baubles, the home crafted decorations and the tinsel.
The lights come with a control to pick which particular setting
you want the lights on, I like them constant, but you can have them dim, flash
or flicker. Eldest was keen on the
flashing but it hurts my eyes! I must
be getting old…
spent some time looking through the Notcutts website I am tempted by the
outdoor illuminations. They would
really make Christmas; a garden complete with a penguin, polar bear, reindeer and
an LED outdoor Santa would ensure your house got noticed over the festive season.
