Vinyl Luminaries - Lowe's Creative Ideas

Vinyl Luminaries - Lowe's Creative Ideas | Wisconsin living | Scoop.it
Create a trail of light using these Christmas luminaries. Make dozens in an afternoon and reuse them year after year.
First Weber Group 's insight:

This is a great idea to enhance holiday curb appeal! And you don't have to worry about them catching fire - an important consideration to say the least.  This isn't something you'd keep lit all the time, of course, but could be a fantastic way to prep your home for an evening showing!

It is also really nice that these luminarias are made to be reusable.

 

Contact any First Weber agent for more ideas on enhancing your curb appeal when selling.  We've got some great ideas - like this one! Hope you like it.

12 fire safety tips to heed during winter | Inman News

12 fire safety tips to heed during winter | Inman News | Wisconsin living | Scoop.it
What you should remember about holiday decorations, boarding temporary guests. A cozy fire in the winter is something we all enjoy, but only when it's confined to the fireplace. The U.S.
First Weber Group 's insight:

Don't skim over this list!  Fire safety is basic but so very important.

1. Extenstion cords: Don't use them if you don't have to. 

2. Candles: Also use a candle holder and do not leave unattended.

3. Lighted trees must be watered regularly, especially this year.  We're hearing the trees are very dry because of the drought.  

4. Ashed from the fire must be put into METAL containers. Do not assume they are completely out. 

5. Space Heaters: be very careful of placement and also for how long you run them.. Read their safety instructions.

 More at inman.com

 

Fireplaces are very popular features in Wisconsin homes during winter and especially the holidays because of the homey atmosphere a glowing fire provides. Have a safe holiday and follow these tips!
