Loving the Dollar $tore.

... So my Powder Room is almost done!
Let me show you where the inspiration came from...



I am sure yo have seen  this box of
Rose Soap Petals
at your local Dollar Tree before...
Well, this is what I envisioned when I first saw it...



...a flower ball



All I did was open each rose,
separate the petals...



...and pin them close together
one by one.
{I got the foam balls @ the Dollar Store as well}




In the end I had the first accessory in my new
Powder Room.
I am loving the Dollar Store...



...by the way it smells delicious!
