This year, I went into the attic to sort, purge and clear out our vintage Christmas decorations. Had lots of the big vintage colorful lights and I decided we would line the yard with them ... well, finding most of the wiring not safe to use and a lot of broken and burned out bulbs, I just discarded the wires and saved the bulbs, burning or not.
I had this tall thick glass pharmaceutical jar and just piled it full of the colorful bulbs.
I tied some raffia around the top and added three small pinecones and it made a pretty decoration.
Then I thought it would be fun to have to have everyone try to guess the number of bulbs in it, so it became a game before opening presents. This was fun.
Do you want to play? (closed January 8, 2013)
I had one blogger send me a guess as to how many bulbs were in the jar ... so ... would you like to play?
Just send me your guess along with your comment.
These are the large C-9 bulbs ...
the jar is 6" wide and 12" tall.
Clue: even number between 80 and 125
Good luck ... have fun
I will let your know the outcome.
January 8, 2013 ... I have not had any more guesses in about a week ... so I will announce the winner. Five bloggers sent in a guess and all were pretty close.
There are 112 bulbs in the jar and
Chris at A Little Creation
with a guess of 102 is the winner.
Thanks for playing along.
