Happy Friday everyone! I hope you're all ready for a fun and relaxing weekend! No stress, no work, and all fun ... to me that's what weekends are about!
And to start my weekend off right I headed to the Dollar Tree to see if I could score anything good. In order to keep my budget under control while still feeding my shopping/decorating compulsion, the Dollar Tree is one of my faves!
Now I know a lot/most of the stuff in there is pretty tacky, cheap and not too cute. But sometimes you really do find the best deals! Especially on craft and floral stuff. Here's what I came home with today...
These white taper candles are 2/$1 so I bought 14 to place all together in my French wire urn (the way Holly does).
I've been looking everywhere for little tin pails like these (in galvanized or white). Who knew to look at the Dollar Tree! I had wanted to paint a number on them, but now I kind of like the simple white look. Although heck, for a dollar I guess I could buy a few more for numbering! : )
I also liked these cute faux greenery plants. I was surprised they really didn't look cheap. There were a couple other varieties that I thought looked borderline tacky, but I liked these the best anyway because of the silvery/white sheen on the leaves. Not too fake-plant-green.
I also loved the simplicity of the white placemat with blue striping. It's not sewn totally straight, which would probably bug some people, but I'm not all about perfection here. Plus, once it has some fun accessories on top, who would notice? It makes a great layer on a side table under some wire cloches or candlesticks or whatever.
I think that's about the best $13 I've ever spent! Have you guys had any Dollar Tree luck?
