Jello Mold Lights

So ya know that new favorite thing I talked about the other day? This would be the one.

I can not even tell you how much I love these.
I grin like an idiot every time I walk into the kitchen and see them lit up.

I found a stack of Jello molds in an antique mall by our house.
I snagged them up so fast I nearly knocked everything else over.
There were only seven of them, but I didn't care, I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do with them.
Then, the next day, the stars aligned and I came across another stack of four at a junk store.

The hardest part was finding a short strand of lights.
I ended up with two strands of twenty that I wrapped around the fake garland.
 The Dad drilled holes in the bottoms of the molds and slipped them over the bulbs for me, while I lay on the couch like an exhausted pile of goo.
He did a pretty good job at placement, eh?

Did I mention how much I love them?
There's no way I'll be able to put them away after Christmas.
I'll have to find lights with white cords so I can have them up around the window year round.

In love.
I didn't buy them, but the junk store had a bunch of mini bundt pans, too.
I wracked my brain trying to come up with an excuse to buy them, but I couldn't think of anything fun.
So I left them there.
Now, I'll probably come across something fantastic on Pinterest and they'll be gone.
That's okay, I still have my new favorite thing.
And speaking of favorite things, today is my birthday, and even though I still feel like a big pile of crap, I'm going out to dinner, without kids.
