The Happiness Project :: Decking the halls with poison ivy


The other day I was talking to
my best friend on the phone,
feeling angsty about something or other
and she basically told me 
that I needed to focus on my holiday mantel.

That's what best friends are for, right?
A little redirection and refocusing can be good for a girl.
So I did just that and it totally distracted me
from worrying about things that are out of my control!

I'm currently OBSESSED with
the new Dollar General store up the road a ways.
They have THE BEST seasonal items 
for super duper cheap.

Two of the ladies that work behind the register
know me by name now, y'all
because I stop by so much 
to buy that one little item I had walked away from.

I mean, most of it costs $1.50!

The whole thing makes me happy.

So, there you have it...
my Halloween mantel in all of it's spooky glory.

 


Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness in our lives?
Simply post a photo of something that
makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it.

You always have such cute mantles! Every time I go to our dollar store, all I think is "Why do I not shop here more?!" Best place for seasonal decor!
