I’ve passed all City of Cincinnati inspections and now can legally occupy my house. Whew. No celebrations yet, as I still need to finish installing all the floor and door moulding and 5 doors, but it does feel good getting all the inspections complete. For this milestone occasion I decided to hang Christmas decorations.
I’m not a post Christmas sales shopper, but I got the wreaths at Home Depot on clearance last year. Regular $49.99 and I got for $12,50. I had to go to three different stores to get all I needed, but it was worth it. The wreaths have battery powered LED lights and can run constantly, 6 hours on/18 hours off, or off.
To dress them up a purchased ribbons and red berry garland from Michael’s. It was a cold and raining day when I hung them and I was able to do it all from the inside of the house just by lowering the upper window sash. Eyelet hooks drilled into the center of the outside frame allowed me to hang the wreaths for the inside via transparent wire capped with electrical connectors.
The snowman I’ve had since a child. It’s over 40 years old.
