(Weekend Bargains)

This weekend I visited the dollar store. I was trying to find some of those black crows to make a cute Halloween tree like Susie over at BienVenue. Well, I found the black crows and I also found this stuff. My hubby doesn't like them but I think he will once he sees the big decorating picture :)



So, you've probably already figured out that I spend like 5 bucks. The candles are a little hammered, but maybe it adds some personality.





Then just to make the day better my friend Aubrey over at Shiner Circus gave me this cute lantern for my little boy's room. It looks so cute!

There is just nothing better then a weekend with cheap free stuff.


My hubby on the other had did something crazy.......



He wend sky diving with his two crazy brothers. Sorry this is the only picture I have. I guess it doesn't prove much does it! BTW, my hubby is the one on the

Hah! You are on the white pumpkin bandwagon too. That tree she did was great! Maybe I should get on the bandwagon too!
Can't picture your hubby skydiving.

I just got those candlesticks for somebody else. :) In a different color though. The candles may not look perfect but they smelled good.

By the way, I gave you an award on my blog because I love your blog :)

Oh I have a candle holder I bought at the dollar store for 3 dollars and I love it.

I wish I was brave enough to sky drive. Did you watch?

Maggie said...

By what I heard from Audrey and Elliot, you couldn't see them diving until they had pretty much landed anyway, so at least you have one picture!

Cute little pumpkin! Did you watch hubby skydive? Oh I feel faint just thinking about it! :0

Erika said...

I would love to go skydiving some day, how fun! So Jungle Gyms is in Salt Lake on Fort Union Blvd. It was pretty fun! Some of the workers are a little slow, and don't eat there, the pizza looked gross. The rides were fun though and it was only like 5 bucks for Kayleigh and parents are free. I think older kids are like 8 dollars, but anyway...

All I can say is-holy cow! Skydiving!

Our Complete Family said...

Way neat-o finds you got this past weekend! Oh boy, your main squeeze and his brothers are so BRAVE. There is no way I think I'd be able to be that adventurous!!! Did they like it? Was today your 1st day or tomorrow? I hope it's a GREAT week for you guys! This is our first 'full' week so we'll see. Bryce was already beat tonight from school and then an almost 2 hour soccer practice! Tomorrow morning should prove interesting... Hugs, Les

You can stalk me anytime. There are a couple of houses I like to drive by too. I don't think it's weird at all. Wait, does that make me weird? Our neighborhood has house tours every now and again. We've got some really cute ones. If another one comes up you'll have to join us. Mimi

Sarah said...

I like the color of the candles! Good finds.

Marrdy said...

Cute, cute stuff. I love "stuff", hubby hates it. SIGH! You have such wonderful design taste. I love it!

Kim~"HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs" said...

It's amazing what you can find at the dollor store...love the candle holders and pumpkin! The lantern for your son's room is really nice, too.

Oh man... that is crazy! I'm glad someone finally stopped for you. How scary!!! Its sad that people are afraid to help people now. I can't imagine my Husband or Dad passing someone that needed help!
