Oh, if any of you tried the ornament wreaths, be SURE to use a hot glue gun to glue the top piece onto the ornaments. Otherwise, you will have them popping off right and left, and it will make a huge difference. The first one I did was awful. After I had done another one, I could see the huge difference. I wound up taking that first one apart because the ornaments kept falling off. So take the extra time to glue then together if you try this.
I have begun to take a few Christmas things out, but only the new things I have purchased, as our boxes are still up in the rafters. We will take those down tomorrow and get started on decorating. Here is a picture of some of my kitchen chairs that I wove a table runner through the backs of, and tied into bows. I love how this dresses up the chairs.
I notice this year that a lot of people are putting their Christmas decorations out earlier than usual. I wonder why that is? We were at Genny and Jake's for leftovers tonight, and I love to see how my kids decorate their homes for the holidays. I will go check out Erika and Jeremy's place this weekend too. I usually have some cast off items to give them as well.
So, ready or not, Santa is on his way................
