Kitchen Table Centerpiece and Yard Sale Finds

I have the hardest time with what to put on my kitchen and dining room tables. I couldn't think of anything cute and Christmasy, so I put one of my roosters in a basket and put greenery and berries around him. I may change it if I come up with something else. My table has been bare for about a week and I had to put something on it 'cause it was driving me crazy.


My mom and I went to some good yard sales Sat. Here are some of the things I bought. The urn was $3 and the rest was $1 each. I was excited! I also bought some books for my son. I usually get books for like 10 to 25 cents. You can't beat that! I am still decorating for Christmas and will hopefully get pretty much done this week so I can get the boxes and stuff put back up and enjoy everything. I haven't shown too much yet because I don't want to show mine too early. I am so ready to see all your stuff and get ideas. Then I'll have to change mine and copy you! Happy Monday everybody!
