Dollar Tree Pumpkins

 I have to admit it. I am jealous...
...jealous of all you bloggers out there that are all decked out for fall.
I'm ashamed to say that my fall decor storage bins have not even made in from the garage.

So...this morning as I was out doing my weekly Friday shopping, I needed some sweet pickles.
Sweet pickles? Yes, sweet pickles.
So I stopped in the Dollar Tree where they have the BEST sweet pickles.
And I bet you can't guess how much they cost??? Anybody?
Yes...only ONE DOLLAR...imagine that! 

Anyway, who can walk into the Dollar Tree and just get what they went in after? 
So I thought I'd look around a bit and so I ambled over to the fall decorations...
...and saw pretty much what I was expecting.
Usually, their fall decor items are kind of tacky leave something to be desired.
But then my eyes gazed upon these pretties.


I thought to myself..."really??"

They are made from a resin of some sort and they come in three different shapes.
Of course I had to get all three. After all, they were only...how much?
O N E   D O L L A R   each!

I got so excited about them I almost forgot my pickles! 

So...after getting them home, I sat them out on the deck...
 scattered a few leaves around them...
...got out my camera...


...and took a few shots of them.


And then I brought them in and played around with them a bit.



I'm not quite sure yet exactly where I will be putting them...
...but I do feel like I have at least gotten a start on my fall decorating now!

Yay, me!!

  4. I was sure your post was going to be about how you painted the DT pumpkins because your linky pic of them (visiting from Dwellings) looked so wonderful! I was so surprised to learn they came that way - they look great! And what a price! I like how you've put them out with the leaves. Now, drag out those bins and show us what other goodies you have!

  7. I am constantly roaming around DT. I will have to go back tomorrow because they didn't have these last week. I am like you, my fall bins are still in the closets. I just love your new pumpkins and they look so lovely on the old books.

  10. Well, I definitely need to stop by the $Store -- those are really pretty! I agree, their things are usually a bit tacky and you have to paint them or do something to them to jazz them up, but these are great. Thanks for following me and I'm now following you!

    1. Richella,
      I saw the feature on Grace @ Home before I saw your comment here...surprise, surprise as Gomer would say! Thanks again and I can't wait to find places to put all of the others I was able to find last night...9 more! And if you like sweet pickles, they are the bomb...I love them more than any others if tried :)

    1. Hi AnnMarie! They are so cute, aren't they? I went back and got more at a different store. I found them on the shelf where the little statues and things are...not in with the other fake pumpkins. I almost missed them....good luck finding them and thank for being my newest follower!

  22. I had to go to five Dollar Trees yesterday in order to find these. Of course they were at the last one! The other stores said they had them but were all sold out and didn't know if they would be getting more or when. They were with the small ceramics up front, not with the other fall or Halloween decorations. Love them! Thanks for sharing.

  26. Wow..What a great find! I'm glad to see like me there are a few realist out there. I love a good DIY but I need it to be practical. A good $1 find is always practical. I love the look of your site. Thanks for sharing on the Friendship Friday.

  29. They really are beautiful! I would never have guessed dollar store. I'm with you in thinking that usually their seasonal décor it a bit tacky. Must admit though when I go to the dollar store it's more like the $30 store. lol!

  31. Debby ... I love your pictures and how you used those little pumpkins. I love them and think I ended up with about fifteen. Twelve were bought for a luncheon decoration. Now I am sharing them with my daughter but $Tree is all out of them. Maybe they will get some more in.
    New follower ... so I will be back to visit more.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hello Audrey! Thanks for stopping by and being my newest follower! I started out with only three pumpkins because that's all the first store had....then I went to another and got 9 more! They are the cutest (and cheapest) little pumpkins...and I love the rustic look of them! Looking forward to seeing more of you!

  33. Oops! I misread the date at the top of the post and thought it said 2015, not 2013! I will still look for them, but you're right, they probably aren't there. Maybe in a thrift shop somewhere?
