I made a Goodwill and Target run this weekend and found some fantastically cheap items. Pictured below is a handmade candy dispenser. It had so much potential that I almost squealed when I saw it on the shelf! Living in PA near so many skilled craftspeople seriously has its Goodwill advantages.
How do you like me now? Yes, yes…she would look so much cuter with some red, white, and pink M&M’s in that jar, but I have absolutely no self-control around M&M’s and neither do my children. None of us like Smarties, so I’ll keep them in there until I’m ready to use this baby. Don’t you worry…she’ll get used!
Here is a picture of some of my other finds. The little lined basket from Target was neutral, so I painted it white. I also wanted to dress up the mailbox a bit.
Here they are after.
I used some scrapbook paper tags to decorate the candles.
These little measuring cups were a find from Goodwill and I just LOVE them!
Lastly, I found this silver basket that had these ugly purple doo-dads around it.
I just lost the bow and cut off the doo-dads and it is now a cute holder for my half-bath toilet paper.
