Speechless Sundays - More Twinkling White Lights

Anna Banana Kruchten Phoenix Broker shared her love for little white lights during the holidays in last month's challenge. I have joked for years that lights make me happy - glorious light fixtures, twinkling white lights, colored lights...just lights in general!  In fact, we use Alexa to turn on our evening twinkling lights - "Alexa, turn on happy lights." If you ever visit us, just try it and see what happy lights illuminate for the season!

This season, we have several trees, moose, china illuminating lights and lights outdoors by the lake. Yes, they truly make me happy. Don't ask me why but, like Anna, I LOVE LIGHTS!

Never underestimate the power of white lights at Christmastime. They are really vibrant and great and so versatile in so many ways

Agreed! Ray always jokes about the power bill in December but, I say, it's worth it, Laura Cerrano!

Sorry about the lack of punctuation. It seems to be a glitch a little bit. Love and light

No worries, Laura Cerrano - I didn't even notice!

I would teach your Alexa bad words so that it would be prepared for a visit from Kathy Streib during a basketball game where Duke is beating Houston, haha.

Good morning Debe,

I love twinkling lights too! They just make me happy!! I got a new tree this year..it is still a 7.5 foot tree but has 1,800 twinkling lights that really make my glass ornaments sparkle!! I have a remote so at a touch my lights are glimmering!

Oh, I love that, Dorie Dillard Austin TX - sounds so inviting! I hope you'll share a picture of your tree with us.

How wonderful! If you enjoy twinkling white lights, I say "go for it!"

Dec 12, 2022 05:56 AM
Debe Maxwell, CRS

I did - much to Ray's dismay, Kat Palmiotti! It's not that they bother him - he just thinks it's a lot of work for me. I contend that it's worth the time investment to enjoy them for the entire month!

Hello Debe - a pleasing photo that enlightens beyond the twinkling.  Obviously outside plus a glimpse of the interior and an overall nice impression.

I'll share my interior trees here too, Michael Jacobs! The one you can see in the sunroom is our oldest tree and this may be its last year. It's blue and sheds little blue tinsel all season long! LOL

Looks so pretty Debe!  Love it!  My love of tiny little lights started when I was a kid.  My Mom always had some little lights on and well as candles and the fireplace. Just a peaceful, quiet place to be (and that was with 7 siblings).  I think she used the lights to keep things calm on purpose!!  Smart lady!

Debe Maxwell, CRS

Oh my gosh, me too, Anna Banana Kruchten Phoenix Broker but, it was my Dad who had the passion for tiny lights and keeping the fireplaces going (real wood, of course)!

I remember my mom asking him one time why he needed more lights for the tree and he said, "You can never have too many lights!" I may have used those words a time or two on Ray! LOL

Debe I love to see all the lights on OTHER peoples house this time of the year .... LOL

Debe Maxwell, CRS

HaHa! Someone asked me yesterday if I hire someone to put my lights up and I shared that I add them a little at a time. By the end of the month, the house is dreamy - just in time for Christmas. If I hired that out, I would keep having to pay a 'service' fee each visit! LOL
