I Love DT

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!

TOO FUN! Are you Enrichment Leader?

My closest DT is smallish and often doesn't have everything. Looks like I need to make the trip to one of the further out ones.

Going to DT tomorrow. I guess I will have to look a little closer. I tried to get my daughter to get that comb and scissors and hang in the kids bathroom...She rolled her eyes at me!

The tables look lovely! You saw all this at your DOLLAR store?? I need to go to mine and take a slower walk through.

WOW...your table centre pieces look fantastic...they really set off your little favour boxes!!
The Dollar Store has sure come a long way...I see that you spent a little more than a dollar!!

This post was cute and fun, but it made me sad. No dollar store around here.=(

Sue said...

You motivated me! I went and I bought. I posted the rosey items I got on my blog!

Pam @ bibbidi-bobbidi-beautiful said...

Holy cow! I've been to my DT twice in the last 2 weeks and didn't see any of those items. I'm going back tomorrow!

I'm going to have to go back to Dollar Tree - your wall decal is gorgeous and a steal to boot :)
