Never underestimate the dollar store ~
and sweet baby gifts from a friend!

I've been meaning to get to the dollar store to check out what they might have to help me with supplies or with decorating for the baby shower. It's coming up fast, Feb. 7th, and I need to be getting things pulled together!

I found sweet pink plates, napkins, forks, balloons (I think I'll have them filled with helium that day), toothpicks because I'm dying to make cupcake picks (we'll see if I get it done :) OH and look at the little blue and pink frames, both for a dollar and I want to put Emily's baby photo in the pink and Brent's in the blue! The baby socks are because I want to make a corsage for Emily to wear ~ I've made one before but I'm a little rusty!

I bought the tissue just because and I love those little tin containers for holding favor candy but I didn't buy them for the shower.....don't you think they would be wonderful to alter for artwork?? 3 for a dollar, you just can't beat it!

So at least I've gotten started now and tonight at Michael's I found a cupcake decorating kit and picked it up with a coupon! Now I need to get busy with all of these things that I want to make!












Today I received the sweetest gift from Charlene of My Heart's Ease......goodies for the baby shower, games and cards for writing advice for the new mother and just look at the precious baby hat!!! And also a wonderful grandmother book, I look forward to reading this....
Charlene I just love it all, thank you so much! And Clara is going to be beautiful in this sweet hat!




Such sweet friends I've found here these last two years. Each and every day I look forward to sharing things with you. Thank you for visiting me!!

hugs to you all and happy Wednesday ~
xxoo, Dawn

Can't wait to see what happens to all of your dollar store items once you've waved your magic wand over it all.

That yellow hat is so adorable. I don't think I've seen one like it before. Yup, you do have lovely blogging buddies.

Hey Dawn,

Don't you just love the dollar stores? I'm going to have to get some of those little tins. They'd be great for holding beads, tiny embellishments and all kinds of things.

And that little yellow hat is absolutely adorable!

My new grandbaby is due February 24th. I don't know if it's a boy or girl, so we'll all be surprised. :)

Baby Blessings, Candy

Dear Dawn - Two things I am anxious to see - the altered tins and corsage with the baby socks. I know you will work them beautifully.

Hi Dawn. Great baby shower finds and I can't wait to see pictures from the shower. I love those little canisters and I'm excited to see what you do with them. Your altered art is fantabulous!!!!

Attic Rat said...

You found lovely things. The shower will be sweet. I love to go there for the holiday decorations. I have learned, though, that if I see something I like but don't need it then, I better get it anyway 'cause when I do need it, they will all be gone!

Charlene said...

I am sooooooooooo glad you liked all the goodies. And I thought little Clara needed some sunny yellow since MiMi was so into the pink stuff & trust me... I would be too if I were getting a girl! Hugs
