Dollar Tree Ocean Theme Candles

candles2

Have you seen these super cute LED candles at your local Dollar Tree this summer?  I absolutely fell in love with them when I saw them on the shelf!

The candles are votive sized, and have sand and pretty little shells in the bottom.  The blue “water” is a gel material.  Some of the candles even have tiny little starfish in them, so cute!

These are similar to other LED votives that Dollar Tree sells, with a toggle switch on the bottom and a flickering candle like light when turned on.

I think they are just perfect for summer decorating, and would be adorable in a beach themed bathroom year round.

Grab them fast if you like them, fall merchandise is already rolling out in the stores!

Happy decorating, friends!

Happy Shark Week!

Are you huge fans of Shark Week like my family is?  We just love it, even if all the shows make the ocean a wee bit scary!  *cue Jaws theme*

I made this fun snuggle sack for Noah last summer, it was the perfect project for summer time, and it kept him warm all fall and winter.  It is made with Bernat Blanket yarn, so it is super plush and cuddly!

Every night when I tuck him in, I tell him to “Feed the shark!”  He giggles and then climbs right in.

You can find the pattern for the Shark Snuggle Sack from Yarnspirations by clicking HERE.

Enjoy Shark Week, and don’t feed the sharks!  Unless they are made with fluffy yarn!  😉
