as of late i have become a little bit obsessed with finding dollar store decor deals.
+ no one else usually has it, and i love having unique things
+ there's no pressure for it to be perfect or last forever
+ each item is $2 [ok, just making sure you're paying attention]
+ each item is $1 [for reals]
each of the things i've come upon recently is a kitchen item, or at least i am using the item that way so far.
exhibit a: a few contributors to my current red-green show in the kitchen.
stripey on the left....
citrus punch on the right....
....and vegetable soup, to warm things up with a little humor. [yes, you can stop squinting, the towel indeed says 'veg soup'. just to clarify what that hot bowl of mystery is.]
i love the outline drawings on this particular towel. so quirky-modern to my eye.
exhibit b: a cheapo yet vintagey looking powdered sugar shaker. ribbed for extra pleasure.
exhibit c: a set of twelve votive holders reincarnated as parfait cups
i fell for their modern lines + how they mimic stemless wine glasses [which i plan to try using them as at some point, too]
here they are on duty at a baby shower i co-hosted this weekend:
i plan to try them as vases next. i'm thinking 5 in a line on the mantle with perhaps a single leaf per vase.
so if you add it all up that's $17 [i have two of the lime green towels] but oh so much more satisfaction.
