yesterday was my first trip to a dollar tree...and i'm in love! up until recently, we didn't have a dollar store at all in the area. then, like magic, on the way to my sister's house for halloween...i saw it. it was practically glowing. i finally got over there yesterday...ya know...since i was KID FREE...ALL DAY!--i'll share more about that later in the week :o)
anyhoo...i almost shed a tear...ok, ok, maybe i'm being dramatic...but they had some awesome stuff in there!! its true, they have some cheap, crappy looking items...but then there are the diamonds in the rough. like the 12 packages of acrylic christmas balls i picked up to make a couple of wreaths(if they turn out nice, i may be selling them in my up coming etsy shop...stay tuned)...i also came across flour sack dish towels that i plan on embroidering for thanksgiving and xmas. my sister had to drag me out of there. i walked outta there only spending $24 on two full-to-the-top bags, and endless possibilities! aah...yes, my new favorite place.
