Happy Monday! I hope all of you have had a great start to your week! I must apologize for my absence during the majority of last week. Last week was my birthday week, and while it was very wonderful it was also very busy! I look forward to catching up with you all this week!
It's no secret that I have a love for all things cute and inexpensive. That is why my favorite thing this week is the dollar bins at Michael's (the arts and crafts store)! Michael's has the cutest dollar items! During my most recent trip, I spotted precious note pads, coasters, luggage tags, menu planners, and more! They had such a variety of items from elegant to preppy. They even had a line of products with a hipster look.
One of my favorite line of dollar bin products was the "Queen of the Kitchen" products. They were all so cute. I purchased these disposable coasters. I thought they would be fun the next time the girls come over for a night of kitchen fun!
The dollar bins contained a lot of kitchen related products. I fell in love with all the cute recipe cards they had. I purchased five sets of recipe cards. I plan to put them in my gift closet. I thought they would make a precious gift combined with a cute apron and some wooden spoons all tied up together with a pretty ribbon or maybe given in combination with a cookbook or other kitchen accessories! The possibilities are endless! Here's one of my favorite sets. I love the little lemons!
However, my favorite purchase has to be these precious lanterns.
The lanterns are designed to hold a battery operated tea-light. I purchased several pink ones to use at a baby shower I am hosting in the Spring. I couldn't resist buying the other colors. I plan to use them as fun decorations on our back porch this summer and even use them at the luau we are hosting in May.
One of my favorite blog friends, Miss Fancy Pants, also loves the dollar bins. Click here to see all the cute things she found!
Like I said, I love the dollar bins at Michael's. I always find small items that are perfect for adding that special touch to gifts, or I find something cute to make a coworker or friend smile when they are having a hard day! Oh, and I can always find something fun for myself! The next time you stop in to stock up on craft supplies make sure you take time to check what goodies the dollar bins have to offer!
