Valentine's Day for Boys

My son is OBSESSED with dinosaurs.  So it was a done deal when I came across this DIY valentine on Pinterest:

Here is my version:

I used stationary cards that I already had and traced a clipart image of a cute dinosaur onto construction paper.  A few Brach's heart candies are the dino's spikes.

Here's the inside...complete with my son's "signature."

Here he is working hard :)  Isn't he cute??

Just be careful that they don't try to pick the candies off :)

Have a DINO-MITE Valentine's Day!

"I'm Gonna Pop Some Tags..."

Last week I took on Young House Love's Thrift Shop Challenge.  With $20 in my pocket, I popped some tags :)

I unfortunately didn't get any pictures while I was in the store but here is a look at my spoils.

6 stackable coffee cups for $2 a piece

Aren't they cute?  The perfect size for an espresso if you choose.

And I scored this awesome ceramic tray.  I'm in love!!  I love the handles and the segmented sections.  This tray would be perfect for chips & dip, tacos with the fixings on the sides, or even a fruit platter.

Here's a closer look at the different patterns on the cups.

Check out these: little deer and cute!

So there you have it.  Many gems can be found while a-thriftin'  :)
