Dollar Store Goodies

I was down in the dumps on Friday and what do I do when I get down in the dumps?  I go to Dollar Tree.  I don't know why it is but that is what I do.  Cheaper than therapy and I give myself a dollar limit as to what I can spend.  Friday's limit = $5.00 , tax doesn't count ;)

So cash in hand, smack dab in the middle of the day, I venture to the Dollar Tree and came back with these goodies:

1- Red Roses
2- Heart Picks
3- Package of Moss
4- White plain candle
5- Fleur de Lis ornament

So first the flowers, took the red roses and heart picks and made a mini bouquet and put it in a mercury glass urn I had.  Added the moss to anchor the arrangment.

Next the candle.  You've all seen this I'm sure, the plain white glass candle.  Added ornamentation by way of self adhesive decor I had in a scrapbooking kit.

Last, the fleur de lis ornament.  Bought it  in a dark and drab brownish color.   Painted it white and she was all pretty.

Here are my goodies, keeping each other company and putting a smile on my face.  Just what the doctor ordered (Dr. Dollar Tree).
