his blog) that the best way to store christmas lights is rolled up into a ball...rather than balled up in a knotted mess. so last year i followed these instructions and it's true. this tip made not only a glowing orb of light, but made putting the lights on the tree so simple this year.
i'd recommend this technique...or am i the last to know this tip?
p.s. abby you'll notice your dropcloth at the base of the tree. my folks just brought down the last box of "wedding stuff" and i found this in there. i'll send it back soon, but not before we fill it with the spirit of maine and the smell of christmas! hope that is okay! xo.
