Happy October! Here's a Halloween Dollar Tree Haul

I stopped by the Dollar tree today and look what I found!There were so many awesome things I just couldn't help myself.  I think this has been the largest Dollar Tree haul I have ever purchased.

I picked up the ceramic figurines and the multi colored googly eyes for some fun October activities.  I've see some You-Tubers hauling the Harvest Blessings and Harvest sign so I was excited to find them at my Dollar Tree Store.  As you can see I also purchased 2 large and 2 small vine wreaths to hang on doors in my house, not sure if I'll add any greenery to them.

I've never notice my Dollar Tree Store having so many of these magnet sheets before, I just had to get all of the styles.  And of course I never can have enough treat bags, at work I hand out treat bag to the kids in the classroom I work in.

Here I found more items to use as fun October craft activities for the grand kids.  I found some really cute Jack-o-lantern lights strings.

Lastly, I found these very cute evergreen tree garland for hanging cards from along with a few items to use in my everyday house decor.

I hope this inspires you for some fun items to decorate you home for Halloween.

Have a Great Day!

September is a time to Party at my house

What do you get a 25 year old for her birthday?  Money card.  Actually I sent here some cash to get what she needed.  My daughter is going to college and working trying to make ends meet.

The following week my Grand daughter has a birthday and shell be turning 4 years old.

I decided that a home party with family would be the best for a four year old and not to over whelming for grandma. ha ha

Grandpa made the cake from a box mix and added icing.

The party theme I came up with was butterflies and purple crepe paper
my granddaughter had a great time with family.

Have a wonderful day!

August thrift finds

I just don't know where my time went during the summer.  I hadn't done much yard selling this summer, but I did stop by one this weekend and look what I found!

I'm not sure where I'm going to put these things, but Ill be sure to show you if I find a place for the items in my house.

I liked the simplistic of the carvings and I have been looking for a glass cube, ( I know that is not the correct name). The little white shelf was just cute so I had to have it.

I'm always on the look out for Christmas decorations, you can never have enough Christmas decorations.  I picked up a box of twinkle lights, a box of pine cone picks with silver bells on them, and a box of red felt bows plus a box of old notebooks and binders that I sure I will use for my binder systems for my projects.

Have a great week!
