Every year we would put them on the long picture window sill. Put the string of Xmas lights so there was one under each one. Looked right pretty and different as nobody else had that show.

Looking good WD, tip my hat to Mr WD for bringing them home for you.
The Christmas lights is such a neat idea. If I could find my insulators, in storage, I would do that. Thanks for a wonderful visual pepperj!

My dad said they used to shoot them, abandoned lines. Coastal Oregon. Some of those insulators that were save sell for a couple thousand a piece! Oh to go back in time and hoard certain things.

Was just having a conversation with my brother about the insulators.
He used to climb the poles, and get them.
The purple ones were great.
He said that the only ones left were chipped ones.
Another thieving sibling gleamed the collections for her antique shop.
