New Years Day project

There is little doubt in my mind that I will probably post several things tonight and then nothing again for the rest of the month.  December was busy but not hectic.  The Christmas shopping was done without a lot of rush and stress.  This was also one of the seasons where I have been updating and refurbishing the Christmas decorations.  Now, I would like to decorate all year around, but I just don't have it in me to keep putting things up and then putting them away.  That is why I like Christmas, I put the decorations up and everything stays up for at least a month.  I have time to enjoy them.
We have had a wreath to put over the garage door for several years, but it wasn't quite big enough.  Ray wanted it to surround the light, not hang under it.  All the ready made wreaths were too expensive, so this year I hit the sales and got a big wreath and decorations at 70% off at Michael's.  There are solar powered led lights on the wreath which were 75% off at Lowes.  I think the total cost for the finished project was about $65.00 which was less than the original cost of the unfinished wreath.  Now there is just a year to wait to see how it looks.
