One of the Ellwood City Municipal Women House Tour homes, the Leavens household, located at 405 Pershing St., in Ellwood City, is the second home on the list to be decorated for the event.
A common theme throughout the household is music; from music note ornaments to dancing Christmas characters, Lynn Leavens said that her late father is the inspiration to having musically themed decorations.
“My father loved music, he used to play instruments and he’s been the inspiration for the musically themed decor. I feel like he’s not so far away when the house is decorated with constant reminders of him.” Many of the musical decorations were handmade by Lynn.
A gallery of decorations is posted below.
