Did I mention I LOVE Dollar Tree!!!

Pottery Barn has a lovely collection of plates that I have been drooling over for a long time. The Emma Dinnerware set is so pretty and delicate, but also hefty in price!
 At $142.00 for a 16 piece set, it would cost me $426.00 for 3 sets!! I could never justify spending that kind of money on dishes!! 
So when I found these at Dollar Tree last year I was beyond happy! However I could only find a piece here and a piece there and was going to every Dollar Tree in my path looking for these plates. Imagine my surprise and happiness when I walked into my local Dollar Tree this morning and found all the pieces!! Best thing yet was the amount of money saved!! I have a set of 10 and with all four pieces, the dinner plates, salad bowl, soup bowls and mugs, in total I have spent 40.00!! That is an amazing amount of money to save!! Yes they are not exactly the same as Pottery Barn, but very very similar!! 
I love you Dollar Tree!!!

Always making changes around here

Been doing some fall decorating around here and it seems like I am always having to change things around.
I think I like something, but then I find out it may be better another way.
With 5 kids I need to find what works best for the little space we call home.
I would love to someday extend my kitchen into the dining room and move the dining room into the living room. Problem is- where would put the living room!?!? We have a playroom  but it is too small, but maybe we can extend it out a few feet. Then there is the garage, but we have so much stuff and would need to get rid of a lot to convert it to a living room. Although it is a possibility!
So until then, I will continue to move things around and see what works- or we can just put the house up for sale! LOL
