I plan on decorating for Christmas this Saturday, and having everything in place by Tuesday. When looking at my dining room table, I decided the hydrangeas would simply not do for the holidays. Tonight, after David and I went out to dinner and made some stops, we ducked into Hobby Lobby. I bought some trim for the Christmas stockings I am having made, some letters to paint for a girl who emailed me and placed an order for them as Christmas gifts, and three canvases. I have decided to paint the canvases to look like pretty Christmas presents, display them on wrought-iron stands, and stagger them on the dining room table. I hope it creates a little "whimsy" in there! I am always looking for some "new" idea, and maybe these will turn out cute. I got one done tonight, and plan on finishing the other two later on in the week.
