What kind of lights do you string up across your Airstream?

I just bought those vintage trailer and car patio lights from Airstream Dreams and was really quite surprised to see the lighting they provided! Pretty funky

We use the pretty basic large multicolored globe style lights. I am however, searching for the legendary and elusive lights that have poodles for light covers! They were spotted last year on eBay but have gone back into hiding..... Yeah, I love patiolights...... they're kuhl.....

I found some that are not nearly as attractive, but they work well and they are easy to store.....

After the holidays last year, the local Wal-Mart had rope lights marked down. They had all sorts of festive holday colors, but they also had clear. There are a couple of dozen small lights inside a weatherproof clear plastic "rope" about 20 feet long. I modified the clips that came with them and added plastic clothes pins to the original hangers, so I can just clip them to the edge of the awning.

They give your just enought light to see what you are doing, but not enough to attract bugs. And it rolls up into a small bundle that's easy to store.

Carol,
FANTASTIC`
Once again..You never failed to impress me~!! (To be honest, at first I figured you used a laser light trick~! But, now that I know better, I'm all the more impressed with your "photographic eye"..)
ciao

Hi Linda, I like your ID photo as well. And thanks. I bet with your brand new CCD and beautiful sunny California weather and scenery we will be seeing some great Airstream pictures from you! There's something about digital that just begs you to take pictures of our "pride and joy" and the places it can bring us. Right now I still use the Minolta Dimage 7HI, but I also got a Canon Rebel as my first DSLR and I about froze trying out night exposures. It's still pretty chilly here in Michigan especially at night.

HP9K I have seen those rope lights at Walmart, what a great idea! I like that you can roll it up and pack it away. It seems I am always chasing several of those wayward light covers as they fall off and roll away.

BobbyW thanks for the link. If you can't find somethere there to "float your boat" I'd be very much surprised. I think those leg lamps are a hoot.

Thanks Flying Cloud. No tricks, nothing up my sleeve but tangled camera straps. Picture Columbo with a new-fangled camera LOL

Afraid I don't have any pictures! But I am being inspired to take some.... vbg!
Tip for attaching those strings of lights..... I use butterfly clips you get at an office supply store cheap, they take little space to store, hold snugly, and can be operted with one hand! But then, I use them for lots of things..... another name for butterfly clips is binder clips.

Thanks Carol... I bought the Canon Powershot Pro 1 about a week ago... vEry cool camera. I gotta get out there and experiment.
Samsclub.com has 1gig Compact Flash memory for under $158, I bought two and an extra battery. I figure I'm ready with guns loaded!
Your work is very inspiring.
