Dollar Store Decorating

Last week, Carol at Raised in Cotton showed us some gorgeous glasses and stemware she bought at a dollar store; and asked if we had any favorite buys from a dollar store that we've used in our homes. I have one to show today.

I was running through Dollar General the other day because since I broke my foot, big stores are out of the question because of all the walking....before I even get INTO the store my foot hurts, so...I needed flour and stopped in at Dollar General.

I walked by this plate, and of course the colors, the gingham border and the rooster caught my eye. It was $1.50 and it now lives above my fridge. I kinda like him. And when I don't anymore? No big deal, he can hold a cake I can give away or cookies for a sick friend! How fun!

Great find Joni! I love the Dollar Store too, and I'm really enjoying anything "chicken" these days... since getting my 7 baby chicks. (: Later I'm hoping to find a Banty Rooster... love that they're small and have beautiful feathers like the one on your plate... to go with my hens. xxx Vicki

Hi Joni!

What a steal! I love dollar stores too! we have one right around the corner and I pop in now and then to see what goodies I can bring home :) If I saw that Rooster plate, he'd be exactly where you put yours right now! :)

Hope the winter is finding you healthy and happy! Hugs, Cynthia

Thanks for your sweet comments -- I'll definitely have to check out the books! I LOVE what you did with the plate -- only 1.50$ wow! Many prayers for a quick recovery and staying warm up there :)
