After loving the scary photos found on Saturdays Vintage Finds blog in my last post, I hustled right down to Dollar Tree just like I said I would.
My favorite Halloween purchases today are these two mice. I figured the scariest place for mice would be in the kitchen, right?
I know it would really creep me out to have real mice in there!
The quality of the mice (rats?) is not very good as their little whiskers stick oddly out. I think they would appear more realistic if they were up on a shelf, farther away, instead of close up like this.
But I thought this little vignette was cute, so I decided to go to one of the seasonal Halloween stores tomorrow and buy some better quality mice to take their place.
Meanwhile these two will continue to frolic on the kitchen cart until I can replace them.
Did you notice the little white stand this mouse is standing on? A few weeks back I bought a couple of these little stands for $1 each (at the bargain isle) in our local Target store.
Until 3 or 4 years ago, I had never been to a Dollar Tree store! I had been to other "dollar stores" and found most of their prices to be in the $1.99 to $2.99 range.
On my first trip to Dollar Tree, I got madder and madder until I finally started to walk out of the store empty-handed...in a huff...and, as I passed a clerk in the isle, I loudly complained that there were no prices on any of their products!
You can bet my face turned red with embarrassment when the kind clerk whispered to me, "Hon...everything is a dollar!"
But even that is not exactly true. I buy all my greeting cards at Dollar Tree and most of the kid's cards are "2 for $1" -- so that's just 50 cents a piece!
If you've managed to stay with my post this long, I thank you! I'll be back to show you the spooky photos I bought today too.
Dollar Tree Purchases: Six Halloween cards for 50 cents each; Two black mice $1 each.
