Gift to me :-), Decorating and a project

Today was my day off and I went for some retail therapy. I was actually supposed to Christmas shop but I got a late start and did not have a list made up yet of what to get and where to go to get it. I like to comparison shop prior. So.... I went to my new favorite store for stuff for my home...TJ Maxx and then Ross and Kirklands. I found this really cute "vintage" apron at Ross for $8.99. I just wish it wasn't so wwiiddee on me ;-).

This is the top of my entertainment center. I am not done yet. I need to fill the white bowl with some red christmas balls. I made the monogrammed plaque. I got the idea from one of the blogs I read but I can't remember which one.
My kitchen is green, black and white theme and I bought this lamp post at Goodwill for $3.99 without the shade. I bought the shade at Walmart and hot glued the little white ball ric rac to it. I think it turned out cute.

Tomorrow I will definitely get some christmas shopping done as well as some cleaning. I will be working wendsday and thursday and then this weekend we are going to Homossassa springs to visit my best friend and her family. I am looking forward to it!
