Super Cheap Gift/Jewelry Idea....

I know this is a late day post but I really wanted to share a super cheap jewelry idea!!!
I found this package of bulb ornaments at the dollar store today. 15 bulb ornaments for $1!!!
I glued the gold tips down and tied on some ribbon......and viola, instant, cute jewelry!!!

I can just see these on coworkers, some of my daughter's friends, teachers, etc.

 Here's the whole bunch of them, hope the picture isn't too dark.

Okay, now back to making dinner. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful night!!!!

I hit the MOTHERLOAD of Christmas goodies!!!

I've had a busy, stressful week and really needed some shopping therapy! So, while my son was in class I visited his local Goodwill! You know how all these retail stores are pullling out their Christmas merchandise? Well, Goodwill is NO exception!!!
They had tons of goodies and I had a ton of fun shopping!!!
I will try to post pictures of all of my findings but for today, I will show you a bag of 40+ ornaments I got for $10!!! They were all brand new with the tags! They are by Encore and were originally priced from $4.99 up to $13.99 each!!! I was squealing with delight as I pulled them out of a tightly tied bag to discover each and every one of them! It was like a "grab bag" of ornaments!



The pink snow "girls" and stockings have a small wood piece on them for personalization, how  sweet is that!?

Thanks for visiting, have a Blessed Friday!!!!
