"Good Taste" from the dollar store!

I had a fun find at the dollar store today. I have been looking for a give away to include in my shipments that would be a reasonable price and fun to receive. I found these vintage replica Coca Cola playing cards. They won't add weight to the package. I really like the look with my branding. (The Candy lights are by Roxie at Jorabeels. They are not just for Christmas. I couldn't put mine away!Go on light something up)

I was so pleased to find something that fit my needs so perfect.

I bought somethings at Make Mine Pink with a gift certificate I received for Christmas. the next set of pictures are some of those goodies. The yellow magnolia planter is my new piece of Mc Coy from Cupid's Vintage Attic. It was one color I didn't have in my collection. I love Mc Coy and this piece is a great addition.

I also bought the creme candle holders and the creme planter. The planter is Mc Coy and the candle holders say made in Japan. I'm not a purest I just go by what pleases me visually. I had seen these items when I first joined MMP. I never forgot them and when I went back to shop I found they were still there. I was so thrilled.

I also bought a couple things from sweet Pamela at Preserves Cottage. She sent a lovely package of coffee as my gift with purchase. That got me thinking about how much impact a give away has on a customer, I felt so special . That little somethin' somethin' has power! Thanks Pamela.

I love my new plaster of Paris fruit and little green planter. They add a lovely touch to my kitchen. I will be posting on Wednesday what I learned about photography taking the pictures for this post. I want share the things I am learning about having a photographic eye. It is great fun.

Have a wonderful week and don't forget to stop by Make Mine Pink for Pink Friday. It is "In with the NEW!" I hope you enjoyed seeing my new things. I will be putting new treasures in my store this week so stop by Blessings.Lilli
