Dollar Tree-in' Again

I hit up the Dollar Tree again and there were so many good finds, I just had to share!
They still had a lot of Halloween decorations available and this sign almost came home with me.
Their Christmas stuff was already out and they keep adding more. If you read my blog post yesterday, you saw the black and white fleece scarves on my kitchen table acting as runners.  I also saw a cute DIY for Christmas stockings made with the scarves.
These mini trees came in green and white.
The ribbon selection was awesome!
Mini disco ball ornaments!
The Christmas florals looked really nice and realistic this year.
Pretty!
The gift bags and boxes were really impressive.

I really liked this reindeer gift bag...again with the buffalo check!
I came home with some of this plaid ribbon.
I didn't know that DT had mini canvases.
These are great for kids' paintings.
This nautical rope in the craft section could be used in some cute projects.
I've been reading about some of the benefits of using Irish Spring around the house so I picked up a few boxes.
I loved these clear mugs and they are a good size too.
Ceramic ramekins!
The charger plates are back and I really like the silver tone.
I picked up the traditional Crostini crackers and boy are they good!
These tea light candle holders look like they could be used all year round.
Finally, I noticed that they carry really cute thank you note packs--for a DOLLAR, people! I picked these up for my birthday thank you notes.

{Shopping} A Little Holiday Decor

I've been changing up the holiday decor a little around the house and I've been loving shades of blue pumpkins and accents.
 This vase filler set of berries, blue and white pumpkins and cotton blossoms came from Big Lots.
 I also found this doormat there.
 On a trip to Hobby Lobby I found some more items. I'm also obsessed with buffalo check in black and white (or red and white for Christmas).
 The stickers are for College Girl's high school yearbook.
 I found some new pillow covers too!
 I added some mums and a fairy tale pumpkin from Trader Joe's to the front porch.
 The rocking chair pillows got some new buffalo check covers (from Jane.com) and I found the cinnamon broom at Trader Joe's. It makes the porch smell so good!
 The other side of the porch got a few more accents added in as well.
The mantel went from this Back To School theme to....
 a black and white Halloween theme.
I found these fleece scarves at Dollar Tree of all places.
 I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them but when I added the buffalo check scarves to my kitchen table, I loved the look!
 Here's the plate and blue pumpkin from Hobby Lobby.
 The cute acorn salt and pepper shakers were a sweet gift from my bloggy friend Cindy.
 I searched for the perfect fall dish towels to hang on the oven, I wanted them to last through the whole fall season. I love the ones I found at TJ Maxx.
Another view into the family room with the new pillow covers and a peek at my DIY Pumpkin Diorama that I made last year.
 The letter board got a spooky quote too...do you recognize the reference?
I stopped in a Ikea recently and they were in full on Christmas mode so I took a peek around.
I picked up some wrapping paper and other gift accessories. I'm loving all of the plaid!
I also got two of the plaid pillow covers and I'm using them already because I like how they look in our navy den.
If you've made it to this point, thanks for sticking with me through this long post! What have you been decorating lately?

Birthday Weekend and Happenings

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days and haven't been able to blog but I'm back and ready to share my birthday weekend happenings from last weekend.
 They started with some flowers from Mr. Click-I love the fall colors!
This made my mom heart explode to see my girls together in Dublin and having fun.  It was the perfect birthday gift!
 Onto the celebrations...
 We headed into the city for the evening.
 First  stop was dinner at Bar Bombon (a vegan Latin tapas restaurant) and I had their Puerto Rican punch of the day. Everything was delicious and hard to believe it was all vegan. The Spanish meatballs in romensco were fabulous!   We had some time after dinner and did a little shopping and walking around. I used my birthday coupon at Anthropologie!
We walked about 10 blocks (gotta burn off all of that good food!) and  arrived at the Walnut Street Theatre to see Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn,
 I love the movie Holiday Inn so I was excited to see what the musical was all about. The hubs had never seen it so it was all new to him.
 It may sound strange that they were running a holiday show in early October but the show isn't just about the winter holidays and takes us through an entire year.
 There were lots of familiar songs and the staging, cast and costumes (so many costume changes!!) were spectacular!

The fun didn't end there and we went to see A Star Is Born on Saturday night. It was amazing. Who knew Bradley Cooper could sing and he also directed the movie. I see Oscars in their future!!
 The humidity was taking a toll on my hair and I was so ready for a cut and color!
 Soooo much better!
I got a new 'toy' for my birthday and it's a beaut! I'm still getting used to it and that's why I didn't get much blogging done last week.
I ended my birthday weekend with a beautiful restorative Ganesh yoga workshop. Bliss!
