Find of the Week:

Found these brand name ear buds with mike and storage case at Dollar Tree.  If you need new ear buds, these would be worth a try for the price.

Quick Tip

 

Make your own battery-operated lantern using a candle lantern you have on hand and a set of battery-operated lights. I used this set of blue butterflies from my summer stash. I pulled a few of the lights up through the top of the lantern, rested some of them between the bars at the top of the cage and spread the rest out around the base. 

Tuck as much of the cord inside the lantern as you can, leaving just enough so that the battery pack can be attached to the bottom of the lantern using Velcro or Command strips. That way, you can hang the lantern up and still have easy access to the on/off switch, while keeping the battery pack pretty much out of sight.

With the warmer weather here, many of us feel the need to lighten up our indoor spaces. Make one of these easy and inexpensive vignettes the center of your dining experience or top a coffee table to make an inviting area for tea and conversation. 

Donít be afraid to make use of smaller outdoor items. Garden birds, lanterns and other decorative summer pieces from the dollar store are all fair game for use inside, as well as out.

In the summertime we like to live out-of-doors. This becomes a problem when the backyard is uninspiring and thereís no money for plush new chair cushions or large planters for the patio.

Still, you can make your backyard a welcoming place to relax or entertain. Read on to find some simple solutions for outdoor decorating a la Dollar Store Style.
