Party Lights in Nothing Flat


Twinkle Button Lights Come in Every Color of the Rainbow. I Checked !   journal entry:   I had to get something out of the Valentines’ box last night and found these little pink lights which I had never opened.  For some reason, and I don’t remember why, I didn’t put lights on my mantle […]
