I was thinking about what Christmas was like when I was little.  I remembered my parents putting up bubbling Christmas lights on our tree every year.  Does anyone remember using these lights?  This is a simple sketch on copy paper with pen and ink and color pencils. 
This one with pen and ink and water color pencils.  I think I like the water color pencils, but need more practice with them.

 :thankyou: NOLAN, For sharing your Santa Candles!  Never seen those before.  So unique; bet you didn’t light them!? ~Liz

I remember seeing the bubbling lights, but we never had any. We had the very few decorations that my parents brought from England when we emigrated to Canada. We had the usual lights in later years.
Nolan, mum had those same candles! I'm not sure but my sister may still have one of them. I seem to remember 'someone' lit one of them...  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

they were never lit Liz, just for the looks in front of the Xmas tree
