Great ideas.

I'm hosting weekly Christmas giveaways at Christmas Memories in My Heart during July and a CIJ tablescape party on my Playing Dishes blog.There will be a tablecloth giveaway at that event on July 25. I went a little nuts buying Christmas things during the clearances in January, so I am sharing with other Christmas nuts.

Come join us.
