corner of my house

I've enjoyed other blogs that from time to time do 'corner of my house' posts so I thought I would share one also.  Of course, I don't want anyone to think that this is what my house looks like based on this one picture! But I like to focus on the positive - I guess I'll get busy cleaning.
I found one of these ( I think they are electrical conductors that go on top of the pole but I might be mistaken) on our property and the others at an old antique/junk store for about 75 cents each. I think they are so pretty, especially the blue ones. I like it when the sunlight comes through the window and lights them.
They would also make great paperweights!

Edited to add :

My husband has informed me that they are insulators, not conductors. Just so we have that straight!
Thank you dear!


  1. Yep, you're right Melissa, they are old electrical conductors. There are still some in use! In G'ville right along the train track are a bunch of electric poles that still have these little beauties at the top. This arrangement looks so pretty! I bet it is really awesome when the sun shines through them.

  2. My dad is a serious insulator collector and has the most AMAZING collection!!! I LOOOOOVE insulators. I guess it is the nostalgia.
