recieved these swedish flash cards from gretchen, this is an over head light in my hallway. before run of the mill now it makes me smile ;). did use glue dots to cover the bulb holder with wide braid, but will replace with electrical tape also may at some point paint the light fixture orb or satin black. i was soooo excited to post i couldnt wait. so gretchen bet you didnt think i would use them this way ;)

Just a note of correction. They are German flash cards. :) I'm a Swede, but my hubby is German and these say German on the box.
Karilelek email me, and I'll see what I can produce for you. :)
