Dollar Tree Christmas Finds & Bloggy Giveaway Carnival

I was at my favorite store yesterday, The Dollar Tree, lol, nothing but the best for me...and I bought a couple of goodies:

Barn star ornament with a snowman on it. They had Santa, too, and I think a few others, but I chose the snowman because I figured if I wanted him to hang around the rest of the winter, it would be fine since he is more 'winter' than 'Christmas". He's so cute :)

And this is a little chalkboard, how sweet! My little guy (and heck maybe my teen, too?) can count down the days til Christmas with this. They also had Santa and I think a snowman.

I really can't believe these were only a $1 each....wonder how long The Dollar Tree will keep things at $1? Hopefully, for a good long time, but I have my doubts...

Next week Bloggy Giveaways will be hosting their quarterly Bloggy Carnival. I will have some really nice prizes, I can't wait!!!

This is a GREAT way to meet other bloggers and gain new readers. If you need any tips on how to host a giveaway, just shoot me an email and I will be glad to help. My email is in my profile.

Other ways to network with fellow bloggers is with twitter and Entrecard. If you join either of those, please let me know so I can add you as a friend!

Make sure to enter my giveaway for a Wedding Photo Frame, I will be picking a winner next Tuesday, good luck!

Oh...and the Fall Home Tour starts tomorrow over at Hooked On Houses! I am pretty excited about my town and home that I chose to do a tour on. Don't be scared of the title of my post tomorrow, it's just tongue in cheek ;)

See you then!


PS: I am cooking a TURKEY in the oven, with stuffing, mashed potatoes and everything...the house smells soooo good...mmmmm!!!

Hi Bella,

Can I come over and eat with you???? hehehe, OK I know it is rude just to invite myself and besides it would probably be a LONG drive!

I saw that little barn star the other day but not the chalkboards....guess I'll be going back to Dollar Tree!!! CUTE!

Meghan said...

What time is dinner?
Beats the Micky D's I am planning for the Cheekers & me.

My sister just bought the same barn star at Dollar Tree last week. She was super excited.
They are getting some cute stuff in lately. Have you seen the cute felt Xmas tree's on stand? Adorable!!!

Can't wait to see your home tour tomorrow, Bella (and see the post title you came up with!). Thanks for reminding me that the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival is next week. That's always lots of fun! :-)

AJ said...

I'd like to invite myself over for dinner too:) Sounds so yummy! And I bet your house smells great too!
I have that same little chalkboard that I got last year, except his head fell off:) I must have that little barn star! Too cute!

Hi Bella ~ Ooooo I bet your house smells wonderful....can't wait for turkey day!

I'll have to stop at the dollar store again...I was there on Monday but didn't see the star!


Erin said...

What a cute chalk board! I wasn't aware that the dollar store carried so many craft items until I started reading all these blogs about it. I had to check it out, now I think I am hooked! You're dinner sounds delicious!

Chris said...

I have to find a Dollar Tree here, I can't wait till I get home. L LOVE CHRISTMAS....

Chris said...

I love a good deal and I'd say "only the cheapest is good enough for me!"
I'm putting together my house peak tour right now...

Love the Dollar store... you can find some really great holiday items there if you go early enough. And that Turkey... YUMO!!! It has made me hungry for Thanksgiving dinner...


The Berry's Patch said...

Your cooking turkey now? I'm so jealous. I can almost smell it. Yum! I love that little chalk board for counting down C-mas. That would be a cute project idea. :-)

Gretchen said...


I love your little Dollar Store buys, especially the blackboard.
I may have to go by there today.
