Lightbulb Stash of the day...

...................found theses LED light strips in 1 shop...thought they would go well in the static caravan i'm planning to make....no wires and sockets needed..........tried it the JWREN,as i've put a partition wall where the light hole is this will do the trick!!!.................also some little tools that are card making charms............for the mini men in my life..

....you could make a kitchen cupboard unit and build it around this...its quite chunky so you could probably dismantle the grey plastic,the lights work by pressing them on...........really nifty if you did'nt want the hassle of light fittings,wires and plugs or just a 1 roomed project that wants a light...

those lights are very nice and perfect for a modern setting...the colour of the light is similar to neon light
Su you are better than captain Cook to discover new things
