Green and red lights

Last year I found green light bulbs and red light bulbs at Piggly Wiggly. I think they were $1 each. We put them in all the outbuilding porch lights and enjoyed them through the month of December. I was afraid they looked tacky, so I asked all my neighbors if they were okay with them, and they all (out of kindness, I'm sure, because we are blessed with great neighbors!) said they liked the lights.

David put them all up for me this year, and I hate to admit that they are my favorite decoration. They look so pretty when it's totally dark and I can see them from the windows of the family room and kitchen. It's a cheap thrill.

They look nice, not tacky at all.

I love the lights!! I wish I could do this at my house, but you can't even see my house from the main road and I can't see the front porch from anywhere in my home because the Christmas tree blocks the window. :(
This is NOT tacky at all...it's FUN!!

Oh, I think they're delightful! Bet they really look neat in the fog and mist, too!
