TGIF! Today is the last day of school for my youngest son until next year. To say that he is excited is an understatement. Next year, (sounds like that is so far away, doesn't it?) BOTH of my sons will be back in school. My oldest son will start college for the first time. He's already registered and has a class schedule. He's very excited. He will be a full time student so he doesn't plan on working for a while.
This week, we finished up our Christmas shopping but are now waiting on a lot of deliveries. We are down to the wire! Since our tree is behind the sofa this year, that left me with a dilemma. Where to put the presents? For now, they are sitting in a basket. But, as more are wrapped, they will be spilling out around the basket, I am sure.
I'm wrapping everything in blue, silver and white this year.
Recently, I decided to place glass candle holders in my coffee table centerpiece so I could light them and enjoy them at night. Before, they were just plain pillar candles.
I wrapped them in sheet music and tied them with twine for a vintage glow at night.
I love how they look at night!
And lastly, I decided that my new dining room slipcovers needed a little extra pizazz during the holidays, so I hung this soft cream stocking on the back of one of my chairs.
It's amazing how something so small can have a big impact.
Hope you are getting all of your last minute shopping done and preparing to finally relax with your family. Seems like the week before Christmas is always the busiest!
Have a great weekend.
