Dollar Store Goodness



Today I let my kids play hookey from school.  Now before you go thinkin I'm such a nice mom, they would probably want me to mention that I took them to the Dentist.  Yeah, school is lookin' pretty good right about now.  No worries, I made it up to them by taking them to meet Mr. Bliss for lunch and then miniature golfing.  In between, we stopped at the Dollar Tree to supplement the pantry with snacks and I found these sweet tin birdie wall prints.


Aren't they tweet?


I wonder what he's thinkin?



These two look like they're fightin.   They must be married.

I'm gonna use these to switch out the wall arrangement over my desk.


This is where I plant my butt every day to blog.


So I'll be huntin for some frames for the birdies.  I'll be sure to show you how it turns out.
Have a great day!
xoxo,
Kim

That will look good there. Now don't be talking bad about the dentist. I am a dental hygienist! : ) Any cavities?

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Ha! I have the dentist this evening! I guess it's that time of year. Love these prints. I didn't see these my last trip there but I did notice they have some nice birds on canvas and butterfly prints that aren't bad looking at all.

That sounded like a fun day. This is the last week of school here. So soon the malls will be full of kids again. I like when the mall is quiet during the week when school is in. Not that I go that often. I like the grocery store nice and quiet, too. Oh, well it is only for a few weeks. Cute bird prints and from the dollar store!

Oooohhhhhh, Kim, you had me laughing out loud with this post!
Tweet....they must be married (ha! I thought the same thing) ;)
I love those! Gonna have to make a trip to the Dollar Tree. Hope you linked this post to Thrifty Thursday, its great!


You mentioned idol, Girrrl, I was watching. I used to post every year, this was the first I havent in 3 years. I was afraid people might 've gotten tired of my rambling ab it and Dancing with the Stars. I dont know what Im gonna do now that those and Celebrity Apprentise has gone off/hiates. What to do, what to do...guess I'll get some good reads.
I was really a Lee, Crystal fan. This is the first year, I didnt care either way....ok maybe I did kinda lean towrds Lee bc he seems so genuine, sincere and so humbly shy...but I do think the top 2 were right. I think Crystal will still go places, and I will buy her album. I was not as pleased with the show itself. Last year they seemed to pull out all the stops, this year, I don tknow. Maybe I was sad bc some of the greats I liked seemed to have lost it...but that happens. Just makes me feel old. I wondered if those kids even knew the songs they were singing tonight. LOL.
Glad you asked, look you got me rambling again :)

Have a great day!

Kim, Very "TWEET", I'm going to the dollar store later today, I hope I find something just as cute. Thank you for visiting and leaving your sweet comment on my “Transformation Thursday”; Wicker Pram! I was so excited when I found this wicker pram with the red and white gingham hood and red wheels, I knew, of course, that I had to add red geraniums.
Hugz,
Kim

I saw these bird pictures today at the Dollar store. They didn't have two different ones! Just the one style so I didn't get them.

Kimberly said...

Kim, did you do a post on how they turned out? can you tell me the name of it.
