Some wonderful goodies I found!

I took a little trip to Michael's and found some of the best stuff!!! Some of the items were on clearance....not the bird cage thing but I did use my coupon for it!

These blank tags were on clearance ~ love the shape!
And the little paper pad with nursery papers....clearance too.

These precious flowers were on clearance ~ why, I don't know but I'm not complaining. I'm not sure what I'll use them on but love them and will add them to "the stash"

These were a new item on the end cap, some vintage style items. Don't you love these pins? I thought they'd be neat to use on my art quilt.

Do you check the wedding section in stores? I LOVE these paper the wedding section. Not on clearance but they were just wonderful....could I spray them with coffee? :)

Don't you love this precious paper?

And someone wants to say hello!!! 3 months old 3 days ago ~ sweet baby Clara . . .

This is really my 1000th post but I just had to share these goodies before the actual giveaway post!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Friday dear friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

Dawn, You really hit the goodies at Michael's.
I would be tempted to run right over there tomorrow, but you probably bought it all. =0))

Love the bird cage, (of course) and that paper is so sweet, and a lot of potential in those paper roses.

And sweet little Clara, well there are not words for her. =0))

Love and blessings,
Barbara jean

What great finds! Love the pins and the nursery paper. I need to visit Michaels one of these days.

Baby Clara is growing so fast. I love her expressive eyes. You are sweet to share her with us.

Dawn, those paper roses are gorgeous..... I must start checking the bridal section. I would also like to try to make some roses out of those coffee filters. They look very pretty and I already make roses out of ribbons. So they couldn't be any more trouble than those.
Little Clara looks more like you every time I see her. She has that same sweet spirit look that you do.
Nite, nite

Oh the flowers are nice and the wedding roses are beautiful, but they don't hold a candle to sweet Clara. What a darling baby with such a smile to light up a room.

Journal Swag said...

You're a great "finder"! Beautiful things! I'm anxious to see what you do with them. MOST beautiful of course, is Miss Clara! So darling. Tell me, one Grandma to another: HOW do they grow so quickly? Is there not some way we could slow it down a bit so we could have longer to cuddle and smell them? What's your "Grandma" name? Mine is Mimi.

Great finds, Dawn. I bought the birdcage, too. The Canadian store had them on half price. It is sitting on my blanket chest/coffee table in my living room.

Denise said...

Hey Sweetie,
I have gotten those roses before and dipped them in coffee. They kinda got scruchy and old looking. I can't wait to see what you make with them. You are my inspiration.
Hugs, Denise

Dear Dawn,

What I loved best though, was the adorable picture of Clara - what a beauty!

Baby Clara is so beautiful Dawn. You must be in heaven when she is around. I feel that way about my grandsons! Aren't we lucky?!

Dawn your Michaels has so much more than mine. :-( > Clara is beautiful. I just love her eyes. So expressive. Sharon

Jamie said...

Our Michael's doesn't have quite all the goodies yours does. Lovely finds, but that Clara -- she's something else! Those huge eyes. So sweet!

Lisa said...

what a great idea to look in the wedding section of Michaels..especially for the little flowers...i soak them in a pot of coffee anyway..

Sandie R said...

What lovely treasures you have found for your art pieces. However I think your greatest treasure is that adorable little treasure Clara. She looks such a sweetheart.

I can't wait to see the roses stained. I know you will do it just right.

Those neat pins also come on "Life is Good" T-shirt and clothing, I know I needed to save them as I do with everything else.

Smiles, Cyndi
