Getting Cozy on National LED Light Day

Today is National LED Light Day, and I'll state right up front that I'm not a fan. I find them to be way too bright and they give me a headache. I still use incandescent bulbs, and when word came a few years back they were gradually being phased out I started hoarding them and still have plenty. 

Hmmm...what's this?

That being said, I love the design trend of LED fairy lights in glass bowls and jars. I think it's so warm and cozy looking. 

Earlier this year I added a pretty frosted drinking glass to my Conway collection. Then at the dollar store last week I picked up a couple small strands of LEDs and was excited to see how one would look in the glass since the frost would cut the brightness.

Him again. Shoulda known.

It was the perfect fit, and with winter right around the corner it will add just the right amount of extra lighting to my bedroom. I plan to pick up a few more strands to put in some frosted cat glasses I have and scatter them around the house as well.

What else is she gonna think of...

As you can see, Mudpie was eager to snoopervise my "craft project" and provided her opinion on it as well.

Cats were put on this Earth to snoopervise humans!
Even Sweetie, who still doesn't engage The Hubby, gets curious when anything is going on!

We have LED lights nearly everywhere these days. But not such fancy ones.
