Vintage (energy saving) light bulbs

I am obsessed with lights…no surprise that I am also obsessed with light bulbs.  I know…funny!  I see the light bulb isle in Walmart and I am drawn to it like a magnet.  Christmas time in Target is more like a kid in a candy store for me.  Daphne, my oldest will say, “Oh no…here we go again!”  I stand there 
studying lights like a complete…well, decorator!

While in Home Depot (my 2nd home) on Sat. my husband and I came across these babies!  Vintage light bulbs.  Vintage??  Hello?  I was in shock!  I have never seen these.  Who has been carrying around this secret?  The price is okay ($7.23), but when you consider the savings in energy, the price looks better!  

You may think it’s just a light bulb.  Well hello Nelly…Check out the corner of the package.  It has a completely  different glare than your average bulb.  This would be great in a light fixture that you can see the bulb and it will decrease that awful glare  i.e. below…
If I would have found this bulb months ago…it would have saved us a lot of time and energy when our green bottle chandelier drove us crazy because of the glare.  See “Here”. 

Let me know if you try one!
