~Dollar Tree Christmas~

Hey girls, Have you been to Dollar Tree lately?? They have all their Christmas stuff in right now...and let me tell you it's great !!



I got a pack of 6 little silver paper frames....I just think these would make great place card holders....




Love this Silver and Blue together...Got a spool of ribbon...




These snow flakes are big and come 3 to a pack....



Some silver shreds...



Now I love these mirror Christmas trees...


These come in pack of 5...


These I got at my all time favorite Hospice thrift Store $ 4.00 for 4...Score...Now what I'm going to do with all this stuff is a Silver, Aqua and white table for Tablescape Thursday...Don't you think that would be pretty and hey the price is right ha ha!!



If you have a Dollar tree close by you check them out...I also got some other things I have been remaking that I'll show for Met Monday...



Now if you have not entered my 1 year Anniversary give away Please click here to do so...Thank you to all that have entered so far I loved reading your comments...I know I had a great time finding everything to put it together with....I had to shop for almost 3 months...Ooooh the sacrifice's I make for you girls is unreal ha ha!!


Hope all is well on your side of the mountain today my friends...




Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

I love that ice blue color. I have way too much Christmas stuff, but I'm glad I do now that I'm blogging. I can't wait to play with all my different colored things for tablescapes! I'm sure I need a few more things...

Ooooohhhhh! The silver and blue is so pretty together. I will have to check it all out at the Dollar Tree soon. Thanks for telling us.

My sister Michele had her second baby boy a few hours ago. ~Woohoo!
Baby "Grayson" weighed 8 pounds and 4 ounces! He's a healthy boy. I'm an aunt for the 11th time now! ~Whew! They are soooo excited!

I was in a dollar store yesterday and picked up a few Christmas themed items. Of course it is now the $1.25 store. Inflation.
I look forward to seeing your place at Christmas.

When I was there last weekend, they had boxes everywhere with the Christmas things. If my doctor appts don't kill me, I am planning on going there Friday. My big white and silver tree in my LR is mostly done with Dollar tree decorations and I tell you, even if I say so myself, it is fabulous! Love the Dollar tree!!! Great finds.

Justine said...

I thought this stuff was going to go on your tree! Now I can't wait to see what you do with it on the table!

What colors do you use on your Christmas tree? I don't remember from last year.

Karen said...

Cool stuff! We don't have a Dollar Tree! We have a knock off and it doesn't look nearly as good as the Dollar Tree or Dollar Store.
What I want is a Cracker Barrel! But that just has to wait until we go to AZ.
Cute post!
Karen

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

♥Mimi♥ said...

Nothing like the Dollar Tree to make a girl feel rich and smart and frugal all at the same time!

Really Rainey said...

I really love that blue you are going with... can't wait to see what you come up with...I can't think about Christmas till after Halloween!

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Gloria, I love those colors of blue from the Dollar Tree. I almost stopped in there yesterday, but now you will make me stop there today! Anyway, I would love to do a room in those colors - just gorgeous with the silver! By the way, I'll bet it's fun to relate to your grown grandchildren - maybe no pumpkins, but lots of good times togther as adults! Linda

Susie from Bienvenue said...

So nice to meet you girlfriend!!! Im glad you will be coming around cause a girl can never..ever..have enough frineds! I love your goodies that you bought over at the dollar tree. I bought some of those very same things last year at our DT. I love those colors together and just might need to go a shoppin' again. Have fun~

onlymehere said...

For me shopping for three months WOULD be torture but somehow I suspect you enjoyed it, lol! My DIL loves aqua/turquoise and so I'll have to send her in there to see what she can find! Have a great day on your side of the mountain! Cindy

kiakai / Kelly said...

Of course I love the blue. I do a white tree in the blue colors each year. I love Dollar Tree. These are some great finds! The funny thing is...when ever I go in that store, no matter what I'm looking for.. I spend about $20.00 EVERY TIME. I don't know what it is, it just always happens that way.

I've been eyeing those aqua ornaments myself. Michael's has an apothecary jar w/ silver trim that would look great holding those ornaments/orbs in it's Christmas decor. Can't wait to see your tablescape w/ this!
