Christmas Kitchen Table AGAIN and Some Awards

Well, this makes three different things I've done on my kitchen table and I think I'll stick with it and not change again. I put out some Santa placemats which I'm sure my son will be pulling off as soon as he notices them. I wrapped some boxes in my pretty Hobby Lobby paper I shared with you last week and put greenery around it. I used my $1 yard sale bowl to put everything in. I'm pretty satisfied, but there are always much cuter ideas out there. I just want to use stuff I have and not have to spend much money. I am going to try to stay away from HL and Michaels because I can't seem to leave those places empty handed. Ya know?!




I am the worst person to give an award to because I take forever to post about it. I am going to try to be better and not be so slack. I really do appreciate the awards and feel very flattered that people actually read and like my blog.

Erin (www.shadesofcolorpoci.blogspot.com) gave me this award:

I love the wrapped presents in the bowl...I bought that same paper this year and never thought about using black ribbon...love it! I have tried not to buy much this year as well, just re-purposing things I already have.

What a great idea, the gifts in the basket? I've been searching for the right thing to fill a basket on my coffee table with - and I think this might be the ticket!
