Aahhh! It's the day after hosting the ladies evening out for our church. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. They all went home with favor boxes from the dollar store containing mints and snickers with a note inside that said, life is "mint" to be happy. And a quote that said (among other things), "How we see life's glass---half-full or half-empty---is primarily a choice." The evening was full of food, friends and fun!While I was at the dollar store buying favor boxes and mints (that just happened to color coordinate with the huge flowers), I took some photos with my phone of some fun items. I resisted the holiday decorations but still found plenty of great items for a dollar.
The toy isle had these oversized plastic combs and scissors. Can't you just envision them with a coat of metallic spray paint? The comb would be great in a bathroom and the scissors would look darling hanging on the wall of a laundry or sewing room.
How cute are these wall decals?!? What a great way to decorate a room without making a commitment of time or money. And when you get tired of them they come off without damaging the wall. Those frames in the middle would be great in a school locker or on the fridge.
These butterfly shapes are actually chalkboards! What little girl wouldn't love those? And now you can even buy fancy outlet and switch covers.
Do you need wall art? How about a pretty poster?These metal farm animal plaques look vintage. How cute would they be in a country kitchen or in a little boy's farm themed room.
Oh, and how I love white plates! These have a beautiful hobnail type border. Add a goblet (we use these at our house every day for supper), a placemat, and a dish towel as an oversized napkin and you have a beautiful place setting!
I managed to bring home a lovely sunflower poster. Won't it be pretty leaning against the wall surrounded by fall leaves and pumpkins? And I purchased some of those chalkboard decals. I placed them in my bathroom. They're great for writing a little reminder.
What a great way to spend a dollar!
