Dollar Dance

  1. Sarah says:

    Oh, I love the dollar stops at Michaels and Target.
    Target has great little buckets to store stuff in. As a mom, they work with kids stuff, crayons, glue. I would think they'd work the same for a designer since you use lots of different pieces to create.

  2. A Perfect Gray says:

    I do NEED those gray and white striped pencils….

  3. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    oh pretty I wish we had Michaels and Target

  4. bluehydrangea says:

    those pencils make me so happy!! I have got to get some for stocking stuffers for my sisters. thanks for the tip!!

  5. my favorite and my best says:

    3 for 5 dollars daffodil bouquets at whole foods and 5 dollar hanging boston ferns at lowes. word.

  6. LindsB says:

    really cute pencils, good pick from the dollar store.

  7. Paige says:

    Cute, cute pencils! Yay for the dollar section.

  8. Kristen says:

    I hit up the same section when I was there on Tuesday!! I loved all that grey and yellow stuff

  9. Averill says:

    Love the pencils! I'm always troving the dollar bins at Target myself, but I see I need to hit up Michael's!

    …Just indulged in a set of Jonathan Adler post-it notes. More than a $, but still pretty cheap considering how adorable they are!

    The dollar bins at Michaels have been a treasure trove lately, my sister always sends me fun treats from her local Michaels!

    Those pencils are a great score!

  11. **Frugal Contessa** says:

    What a coincidence that you would blog this, I just hit up these same bins! I hardly ever shop at Michaels, but I'm so glad I did this week because our wedding colours are grey and yellow. I bought a huge stack of blank cards to use as 'thank you' cards for under $25. I'll blog about them soon!

  12. Michelle says:

    Thanks for posting! I'm doing a grey/yellow party in a month, so I'm going to sneak over tomorrow and load up on fun stuff!

  13. compulsively compiled says:

    I'll have to grab some of those pencils, they are a perfect prize for our Easter bingo game.

  14. Emily A. Clark says:

    Those pencils would look great in my office (I never use them, but what does that matter?!).

    I've also found some great notecards in the dollar bins there lately, and a few weeks ago, I got a stamp with my initial on it.

  15. AppleTree says:

    I think a cup full of sharpened pencils looks so good on a desk.

  16. Scientific Housewife says:

    I love the dollar section at Michaels, it's so fun!

  17. Living It At Home says:

    I love the dollar store for when I am doing a party for my daughter. Those pencils are adorable!

  18. Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle says:

    I love multiples of anything. When something is just $1, you can snap up an armful and not feel guilty. Everything is more interesting when done en masse. I could see an entire glass apothecary jar filled with those pencils.

  19. Katie says:

    so tempting! haha They're chic pencils!

  20. Ashlee Brooke says:

    So great! I will have to check out my local store and see what knobs they have! Thanks for sharing!

  21. Natalie says:

    I LOVE the dollar section at Michaels and Craft warehouse! I find all sorts of amazing things without breaking the bank!

  22. Rachel @ La Bella Bungalow says:

    I'm a sucker for that dollar section at Michael's too. Last month it was filled with Pink Damask goodies and I, of course, couldn't leave the store without a few things.


  23. Haven and Home says:

    Someone just e-mailed me they saw these and then came back and sent me to you! Love these!

  24. Ashley says:

    I love those pencils! And I actually have to go to Michaels tomorrow anyway. 🙂

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
