12 Days of Christmas--Day 12, WHEW!

On the 12th day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, some lights and snowflakes for all to see.
I do not know how to photograph lights at night, and I know the manner I used is not the correct technique, so forgive the pictures, but actually, they do a good job of capturing what this looks like in real life at night.  Also, you don't get to see a full window shot, i.e. a full shot of the dirty dishes in my sink.  I have been running from one event to another today and just got home from a football banquet that I had to cook for, hence the dirty dishes.
I painted my kitchen wall last week and took down my old window treatment.  I am not sure what I am going to replace it with, but for the holiday interim I chose lights and snowflakes.  I  draped everything from a chippy rake handle.
I wrapped and draped lights down both sides--icicle lights would be great too, but all of mine are on the outside of the house. So I just used mini white lights--three 100 count strings.
I tied dollar store snowflakes at the end of different lengths of satin ribbon and draped these over the handle as well.
I love the effect, and will probably be using this as my window valance until Valentine's Day.
Keep on linking--this party stays open through Christmas!  I will put it under my holiday tab.
