That's What Friends Are For!

Dawn from The Feathered Nest shared a "glimpse" at this calendar she found at Michael's. Visit her and you'll see a peek at the beautiful photos inside. Well I decided this calendar would be a perfect bit of pretty next to my desk at work, so I stopped in Michael's after work today.

I found the calendar and I love it!

I also found a whole lot of new goodies in the dollar section.
I only bought half of what caught my eye ~ I'm already sitting here thinking about what I need to go back for!

Look at these wonderful stamps ~ I bought ten of them. Enough of an assortment to do the first and last initials for all my family! Check out the Elijah and the Charlotte and the Penelope ~ and the M to go with the E for me! Aren't these great! $1.00!! (each, of course!)

Three frames ~ wonder what, make that who, I'm going to put in these? I'll give you three guesses!
Orange, Red & Pink. These are for my workroom.

A place to jot down ideas and stuff!

And pencils to jot with!
Aren't these little tubes of pencils so cute? I'm hoping the labels peel off without tearing the tube. But if that happens I'll just have to cover them with a nice paper.

Of course I went with a 40% coupon ~ how could I not!
I found these sparkly, glittery brown photo corners and saved $1.60! I don't know what I'm going to do with them but I needed them!

Thanks a bunch for mentioning the calendar Dawn ~ I love it and all the other treasures I discovered along the way!

Cool stuff, Marie. I really do like those pencils in the tube the best. Not sure why. I think I get drawn to everyday items in neat packaging. If I didn't have a full day, I'd be stopping by Michael's too for a look see. Hmmm, maybe tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the "heads up". Gettin' in my car and heading 1 mile down the street to Michaels with coupon in hand! Oh shoot, I have to go to work first and then take a detour.

Marie, I had to chuckle when I read "I don't know what I'm going to do with them but I needed them!" I'm so glad I'm not the only one afflicted with that 'problem'.

Now should I add that you deserve to get these goodies because you were so good at using up your stash for the craft fair a couple of months ago right?!?..lol.
