Hi Everyone! Today was a gorgeous day here in Lake City, SC! It was 71 degrees and sunny. I love living here with these temps! I have lived in the South for 17 years but used to live in Northwestern NJ where it was in the 30's or 40's this time of year.
Yesterday I went up to Florence, SC. It is about a 25 minute ride from my house. They have a Hobby Lobby up there. I was with my daughter, Jenny and my youngest grandson, Jack. I went into the wood department looking for maybe some unusual or cute sign wood. There was just what I was looking for-a wooden shelf (this one also had a plate rail!!). It was only $14.99 so I grabbed it up. I painted it with one coat of white chalk and another coat today. Once it was dry I hung it up over my washer and dryer. I decided to decorate it a little for Christmas. I might change it, but for photo purposes I wanted to have some things on the shelf. I also hung up a metal Laundry sign that I have had for about 10 years. Yesterday I decorated an antique printer's tray that my daughter, Jenny gave me. This is the only Christmas I have done in my house because I'm hosting Thanksgiving and I want to leave those decorations up until the day after. I try and not rush the seasons. I feel like that area of the laundry room/breakfast room is all done now. I am very happy the way it all turned out. Take a look at what I did below:

I hope you like the things I did, I certain do! I love doing little things like this, not overwhelming or time consuming. Everyone have a lovely evening!
