Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

One Dollar

The other day when I was at Michael's buying unfinished frames  (see previous post) I wandered by the
dollar section and the clerk was putting out these pretties.

Post It notes...


 Note cards...
 Adorable little carved frames...



In the cutest colors and patterns ever.  Had to bring a few things home to add to my already overflowing stash.

Oh good...another sucker, um, I mean discriminating shopper for the $1 aisle at Michael's. They might as well just have a neon sign with my name on it!! Did you see the adorable hangers that matched this set? (They were $2 but oh so cute!)

I found some goodies too at Michaels... journals and door pulls, clothespins and tags!!! Some things were a dollar and some things were 2 but I loved all the shabby chic things they have!!!
Have a great day!

Joyce from Scrap for Joy (the first comment) and I are great friends and only live about 10 min. from eachother. Needless to say we shop at the same Michael's. Good thing I did my dollar aisle shopping before she got there :) This stuff is just too cute. I added a bunch to my stash too.

I was just noticing that we're almost out of post-it notepads around here. Thanks for sharing. I know where to go now to get some more!
Have a wonderful weekend :-)

Isn't it nice to be there when the good stuff is served?

CLEARLY, you had me in mind when you bought and then posted this divine bunch of flowery stuff. LOVE IT and because I got my house clean early, on account of the double baby shower, I am now FREE AS A BIRD to shop the Michaels aisles at the crack of dawn. THANK YOU, MIMI SUE! I LOVE YOU!

Michaels does have such adorable stuff in their dollar section. I always check it out when I go in there. I got the fleur de lis/bees placemat at a yard sale and it doesn't have a tag so I have no idea who makes it. Wish I did!
