More dollar store decor...

Any one else out there in blog world using the Dave Ramsey envelope system?  Getting our debit card information stolen and having to go through that hassle encouraged us to go back to using good old cash.  So we have our gas money, our grocery money and our entertainment money.  For me, taking a five out of the entertainment money and going to Dollar Tree to see if there's anything new and interesting is fun.  Hubby looks at me a wee bit like I'm mentally challenged when I do this.  After almost thirty four years of marriage you would think he would get this need of mine to tweak things around the house...the need to feather our nest...even when we're being budget conscious.



Three glass cylinders and one wall sticker...that's four dollars...


One roll of grosgrain ribbon...and that makes five dollars total.


Hot glue on some buttons from the sewing box...this just isn't doing it for me.


Try adding some ribbon and buttons on the bottom too...still not lovin' it.


Set them on top of some black candlesticks I had tucked away...now that's better!
