topiaries to entertaining

Can you believe they're from Target? Too bad I dont have the gene that makes people like to entertain. It makes me nervous to have people over for dinner...just part of my OCD and "eager to please disease" where I'm overwhelmed wanting everything to be perfect. Guess I'll put that on my list of things to work on. In the meantime I saw these placemats. They're 4 for $24! Soon to be mine...

I've been thinking about painting or stenciling my pantry but after I scrubbed it down with those handy whitening sponges it looks better and I'm ok with putting that project off a bit.  If I ever do get the urge then I'll consider using one of these tutorials.
