Find of the Week:
started stocking $4 items, bigger and better vases have become
available to dollar store decor enthusiasts that still won't break
the decorating budget. This one is about 18-inches tall with a
metal accent. It's meant for use with artificial flowers only but
you can add a liner, not included, if you want to display fresh
flowers in it.
You may want to check

Here's a quick and easy party
favour for your next fall party: Simply wrap regular-size
chocolate bars in scrapbook paper. Here, we've left the ends open.
Place a faux leaf on top and secure it in place with baker's twine
as you wrap the chocolate like a gift. Tie a knot in the twine,
leaving the ends long.
Print messages such as
"Thankful for You!", "Give Thanks" or place
names, if you prefer, onto a sheet of address labels and cut them
out. Apply messages or names to small tags, add a small
embellishment like the leaf confetti shown here and tie the label
onto the ends of the baker's twine.
