Fall at Dollar Tree


     I certainly don’t live in an area where there is a ‘changing of the leaves’ on the fall calendar, but as long as I can stand outside when the first ‘norther’ blows in, I’m good.

     So for fall leaves , I look everywhere, and at Dollar Tree the price is right.

     I also found these treasures.  Since I now have a thing for birds, I loved these.


     I bought extras that I can spray paint white, antique gold, and Walnut- a WalMart spray paint -  that is an all-time great rusty brown colored paint. How could I just get one?  Birds travel in flocks, don’t they?

     Then I saw these.


     These are prints on light weight aluminum.

     And finally, more fall items in muted colors that I will use for my tablescape at Thanksgiving and around the house now.

I was in Dollar Tree Wed., but was on the run and did stop to look at their Fall Items - need to go back.

Lynn said...

Laura, I'm always on the lookout for accessories for my floral arrangements. I stock pile ribbons, silk leaves, gourds, berries, anything crafty and the best deals are at Dollar Tree! Great finds!

Hi Laura,
You made out great at Dollar Tree...I LOVE that store too!
To answer your question about WW on my blog...yes I have done WW before and lost 40 pounds, but then I stopped and the weight came back :(
I think at that time I was thinking of it more as a DIET and now I have incorporated it into my life as a LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
Let me know if I can be of any more help. I have also found that the WW meetings and posting it on my blog have made me more accountable. Blog friends are the best at encouraging and helping!
Good luck :)
