Friends, we need to talk. It has come to my attention that some of you- perhaps even many of you- are still lighting your homes with Xmas lights. Keep in mind that by Xmas lights, I mean “tiny lights on a string”, even if yours have leetle bats or ghosties on them. Please stop. If you are no longer in college, please pack them away, banish them to the back yard, or throw them right on out. Consider it part of Spring Cleaning. Consider it an intervention. Write me hate mail if you must, but face the Awful Truth. They are not romantic, they do not set a mood, and their dim light does not hide your collection of MIB toys piled up in the corner under the laundry.
If this leaves you standing in the harsh glare of overhead lighting that frightens you so, do not despair. Along with the X-ray Lamp and Spine Lamp we have covered in the past, here are a great selection of interesting alternatives to buy, or try this DIY Steampunk Lamp from Professor Fzz.
