Bargain Alert!



I love "home-made-y" looking ornaments on my Christmas Tree. The Dollar Store has these:



They are adorable and I snatched up a half dozen for my tree before they were gone. Here's a close up shot of one to better show details:



For a buck? Yes, please.

Unfortunately, and obviously, there wasn't anything left I liked which I could use for Halloween decorating. I have no idea what I'm going to do...I really want to participate in the blog parties this year but I'd like to somewhat be able to hang with all the talented and crafty people who will be sharing their amazing decor. We'll see what I can come up with, lol. I'm excited and can't wait to see everyone else's posts! What parties will you be participating in?

Oh, lovely to see someone already preparing for Christmas :) I do it always last minute and go to buy ornaments when the tree is inside.

Those are cute ornaments. Can't blame you for snatching them up. So sad about Halloween. It's my favorite.

No parties for me. I must stink or something.

Those are adorable! You were smart to get them now. I've learned that stuff flies off the shelves. Thanks for stopping by my blog! OH, and are you a marching band fan? My hubby was down in Orlando this weekend for a competition!

Two years ago, I went to the Dollar General Store after Christmas, I got all their stuff 75% off. While it is not the dollar store, I spent less than a dollar on everything. I got alot of stuff for only 10 cents. I loaded up baskets full and the next year, gave away stuff as gifts. It made great gifts for teachers and co-workers.
