One cannot help but be transported to the magical world of Christmas by a tree adorned with what appears to be the brilliant stars of a winter night. The illusion of stars is created with white Christmas lights
. Strands of white Christmas lights can create a frosty winter wonderland. A home standing in the middle of the Sonoran Desert can have the appearance of snowcapped hedges and icicles hanging from the roof. The first white lights were candles on the Christmas tree. With the advent of electricity, decorations of indoor and outdoor Christmas lights have become as traditional as the tree.
Mini candles are still frequently used on Christmas trees in United Kingdom homes. Tens of thousands of homes in the United States (U.S) claim the electric light strand as the preferred choice. The first strand of electric Christmas lights in the U.S. had 80 alternating bulbs in white, red and blue. Businesses and official buildings were one of the first venues for decorating with strands of electric lights. The cost of electricity was prohibitive to the average person prior to 1930.
A scene of moving deer decorated with white Christmas lights drinking from a sparkling blue and white stream on the front lawn creates a pleasing welcome for honored quests. Cars passing by with children out on a family execursion to see homes decorated with lights are filled with the sounds of oooooooohs and ahhhhhhhhhs. The city park or plaza features a tree draped in white lights. A mantle adorned with evergreen branches sprinkled with white Christmas lights makes the roaring fire that much cozier. The buffet table decorated with white Christmas lights adds flare, sophistication and a visual treat for the eyes.
The use of indoor and outdoor Christmas lights is only limited by one’s imagination. Everything from snowcapped Saguaros to dazzling star studded trees are within the realm of possibilities with some strands of white Christmas lights.

When planning a party, everyone always wants to make it as nice as possible. However, every planner has to consider the costs and time required to assemble the best experience for it’s guest as they can. In many cases classy napkins, placemats, etc, get passed over and are replaced by paper napkins and no placemat! The fact of the matter is, cloth dinner napkins and placemats are expensive. Even if they are rented out, they all have to be washed at the end of the night.
MYdrap offers a unique, one of a kind solution. MYdrap manufacturers a line of disposable/reusable dinner, cocktail, and luncheon napkins, as well as placemats, that look like high quality napkins but cost only a fraction of the price. All of MYdrap’s products are packaged and sold on a roll. All their products come pre-perforated, so all you have to do is roll out and tear off to get a single unit. In fact, once torn off, the napkins and placemats perforated edge is barely noticeable. While MYdrap’s are priced such that they could be disposed of after a party, many people choose to reuse them. They are durable enough to be thrown in a normal clothes washer cycle.
Now your party’s napkins and placemats can go from the place where you cut corners to keep costs down (and clean-up time down) to the talk of the party! MYdrap is new to the US for 2011. Be one of the first to show off this amazing product!

Families across the country go to great lengths to celebrate the holidays. Christmas trees are decorated, cookies are baked, and miniature lights are strung up around the house to broadcast the festive spirit to friends and neighbors. As soon as the holiday season is over, many people scramble to pack up their decorations and take down their tree, unaware that those white wire Christmas lights
can still come in handy throughout the year.
White wire Christmas lights can liven up any living space in any season. Instead of removing them immediately after Christmas, families can use them for different holidays by making slight modifications. For Valentine’s Day, red ribbons could be tied on a string of white lights for a romantic look. When Halloween comes around, black and orange ribbons could add a spooky feel. With a little creativity, the white lights could also reflect off different kinds of black or orange materials, creating a ghastly glow. The wire that links the lights together is the perfect width for hanging decorations for any holiday, and the white color won’t clash with other color schemes. From shamrocks in March to American flags in July, white wire Christmas lights are the perfect addition to any holiday décor.
Christmas lights can also add a little sparkle to a backyard or pool area. When strung up around the perimeters of a yard, they create a glow that almost compels families to spend time together outside. They provide soft, glowing light for a nighttime swim, and they also come in handy for outdoor parties. When a normal light would be too bright for outdoor use, white wire Christmas lights can add just the right amount of light without distracting guests from the other decorations and scenery.
Christmas lights are usually on sale immediately after the holidays, and stocking up on them at this time could be a great decision for any family that loves to celebrate holidays, seasons, and special events. White lights retain their elegance throughout the year, and they are the perfect last-minute decorating touch for holidays, parties, and outdoor celebrations.

When I was a girl, our vacuum cleaner was a squat, round thing that I recall looking like R2D2. It was loud and not very effective or so I was told because what 4 year old pays attention to such things? But our house was small so it was probably adequate.
The vacuum of my childhood would not do for today’s homes. I think of the 2,000 square foot plus houses of today, often carpeted to a fair thee well in the bedroom and family areas. Today’s vacuum needs to be a work horse.
Recently, I was looking at vacuums online and came across Miele vacuums. The Miele vacuum is… sleek! The upright lays completely flat, as in slide under the bed flat. Miele vacuums have cool designer colors including stainless, the holy grail of appliance finishes. The attachments look like some sort of dust-vanquishing weapon with a fuzzy ring on the end.
Miele vacuums come in stick and canister models too. Have I mentioned I am partial to stick vacuums for hard floors? Cleaning the tile floor in the bathroom is a much more pleasant experience with a stick vacuum than without.
I don’t know much about canister vacuums, only having owned one in my whole life (other than R2D2). I was impressed with the Miele vacuum’s control function being on the handle where you can access it easily. Like cup holders in a car, it’s the little design elements that can soothe or irritate.
But let’s face it. Bells and whistles and good looks are nice but the most important quality in a vacuum is how it works. It turns out that Miele vacuums are not just another pretty appliance; they have a Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. This seal is not just a recommendation but also a limited two year warranty. Since I assume Good Housekeeping does not want to pay out for shoddy products, they do their due diligence to verify the quality of the products they recommend. Despite my fascination with shiny modern vacuums, I’m old fashioned enough for that to mean something.

The look of the home is very important and having an old or damaged mailbox can greatly detract from this image. Gaines mailboxes
can greatly improve the aesthetics of any home.
Gaines mailboxes are not only beautiful, they are also very functional and durable. Most mailboxes on the market are made of plastic or lightweight steel that can be easily damaged. Gaines mailboxes are constructed of aircraft grade aluminum. This means that they will be able to stand up to years of weather and still remain in pristine condition.
Most mailboxes are very simple and all look alike. For many homeowners, being able to stand out or have a mailbox that tastefully matches the decor of the tome is important. Gaines mailboxes come in a wide variety of styles and designs. That means that the box can be matched to any home and the tastes of any homeowner.
In addition to mailboxes, Gaines also manufacturers address plaques. These come in different styles and can be wall mounted or can be freestanding signs that are secured in the ground with attractive posts. These are much more decorative and attractive than the typical stick on or screw mounted individual numbers that many people use.
It is amazing how much nicer the look of the house will be once the old mailbox is removed and a new one is put in its place. Gaines mailboxes provide the homeowner with a beautiful and functional box that will be appreciated for many years to come.
