the blinking bush
Posted: December 15, 2010 Filed under: holidays | Tags: blinking bush house, i love xmas
as i mentioned last year, i love to find that one house decorated with the blinking bush. that puts me over-the-top in the spirit of the holidays.
you know what i’m talking about. all solid lights on the rest of the house or the rest of the shrubbery – and then – the lone blinking bush. it kills me for some reason.
well, my oh my, i found one and it’s right down the street from where i live. if i need a jolt of funny, it’s just a mile away…
BEHOLD. what christmas is all about –
(i was driving and still moving when i captured this shot, but you get the idea.)
that low white bush on the left is the blinker.
now, you may be thinking, “bleh. what’s so great about that?”
take note of the choice styles of draping execution. the wrap-around. the casual looped drape. the clustered wall of multi-colored lights.
sure, i’d prefer if they’d taken it one step further with lights on the house or in the windows, but still. bonus points to them for NOT using inflatable ornaments. inflatables bug me.
that is one little slice of sunshine in my cold cold world.
