  1. I wanted to get my butt off the chair from sitting everyday doing nothing but TV. I decided to reuse Christmas candle blow molds for St. Patrick's Day. Materials: (2) Plasti Dip Blaze Green (2) Plasti Dip Blaze Orange (2) Plasti Dip White Clear 12 Gauge Vinyl from joann.com (so I can save the sticker) Leprechaun sticker from redbubble (Printed and shipped from CA) ^ I only bought one to test. https://www.redbubble.com/i/sticker/Lucky-Irish-Gnome-St-Patrick-s-Day-by-BIBISHA/69659743.O9UDB
  2. Like everybody else (Lowes, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, ....), American Sales up their shipping prices after the Holiday.
  3. Few days ago I took a look at Disney+ again after a year of ignoring it. I'm happy to see my favorite old short films and movies now available to watch. Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas Mickey's Christmas Carol Pluto's Christmas Tree Santa's Workshop Mickey Mouse On Ice The Small One Chip N Dale Corn Chips Winne The Pooh A Very Merry Pooh Year Lonesome Ghosts And many more.
  4. Got snow here too. Regular snow then wet snow. I had to dig my inflatables and solars out.
  5. Well despite the huge size I liked the animated flame LED bulbs so I decided to use them. I used the jig saw to widen the mount hole for the bulb to get in.
  6. Finally my order (Nov 27) of two westinghouse 3-c7 bulbs replacement cords is on the way. Light bulbs: - Tried to use 3W flickering incandescent bulbs but the brightness were too low. https://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Flicker-Flame-Light-Bulb-Edison-E12-Candelabra-Base-Flickering-Orange-Glow-3W/154111173935 - Also tried to use flickering/flame LED bulbs but they were too big to fit in the lamp hole. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Animated-Flickering-Fire-Effect-LED-for-Parties-Christmas-and-Halloween/164454289217 - I'm now using 0.6W LED (7W incandescent) bulbs. https://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Pa
  7. http://christmasyarddecor.info/vintage-pair-48-christmas-lighted-candles-lights-union-products.html https://picclick.com/Vintage-Pair-48-Christmas-Lighted-Candles-Lights-Union-282743093200.html Oh! I have been wondering for years what they were used for.
  8. Unfortunately the candle blow mold itself was thrown away back in 90s. As far I know, no picture of it exist. The box is currently being used to hold Christmas decoration.
  9. Interesting methods you all have come up with. Currently they are standing on the sidewalk/walkway and I will leave them there. I have no desire to do any more works as I'm 99.9% done with the decorations. Will think more when summer come again.
  10. I have two noel candle blow molds and they are pretty light weight. I'm wondering how much weight for them to stand up through 98% of weather. I have unused river rocks & pebbles that I had bought from Lowes. I filled them equally in both blow molds. They now weight around 4lb 12oz.
  11. After about a decade of waiting, I finally got into blow mold. I had planned to wait until Black Friday but they were sold out days earlier at the local Ace Hardware store. After searching all over the internet, I found them at ToolBoxSupply.com (Troy, NY). I saved about $20 by not buying similar candles at Lowes.
  12. NOMA Candy Cane Pathway Lights Set of 6 12" When I opened the box, I found almost all of candy canes were hurried or sloppily put together. I had to re-do them. So 4 stars out of 5. Black stakes. Total height: 18 inches Stake height: 6.5 inches Candy Cane height: 11 inches Info on the box: Clear incandescent bulbs Connect multiple sets together Includes ground stakes, spare fuse and 4 spare bulbs Caution: Use on 120V only. Do not connect more than 15 sets to one outlet. Made in China. Imported By: Golden Viking Sports LLC, Sumner, WA 98390 https://www.amazon.c
  13. I run all inflatables on WiOn 50049 & 50053 WiFi timers. I can be 1,000 miles away and still control my inflatables thru my phone. I used to turn them off when a shower/storm come through but then I sometimes end up with flat inflatables (dead fans). Now I leave them ON all the times except in severe weather (strong winds). Fans struggle to run if they are covered/clogged in snow or inflatables filled with water. By leaving inflatables ON, I rarely need to buy and replace fans. No matter how you set them up, they always need adjustments. Ropes and stakes always get loose becaus
  14. Last week I took out the weak 0.5a fan and put in the 0.85a fan + 3 LED lights. Now the inflatable is fuller and brighter. I should have done this LONG TIME AGO.

  15. Shop Rite 75% off Christmas lights. I grabbed 2x 25 C9 LED string lights.
