Find of the Week:
I found the embroidered holiday
tea towel at Dollar Tree and the plaid one at Dollarama. The
Dollarama tea towels cost $2 each, come in a couple of different
patterns and are larger, though they do lose some width after
washing and that's in cold water. However, both are pretty and the
embroidered ones, being smaller than an average tea towel, might
even be used as napkins. I saw them in red, green and white,
embroidered with different pictures and sentiments.
To see past "Finds",
An easy decorating idea is to
hang mini stockings on a wire garland strung along a wall. By
adding stick-on numbers, you could easily turn a garland into an
advent calendar. I found a variety of mini stockings at Dollar
Tree in packages of two.

$1 to $2 each.
Try different shapes and sizes of vases. As you'll see, even clear glass votive candle holders
can work. It’s a cheap, fun way to help decorate a mantle or tabletop for Christmas.
