Housewarming Gifts: Part Two “Enter the Martini Castle”

As promised, here is my go-to housewarming gift for any new homeowner. Based on the title of this post, you may have guessed that it’s based on one of my favorite movies, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It is the sweetest, most heart-warming movie that there ever was. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend giving it a shot this holiday season. (I watch it every year.)

Dollar Tree Anniversary Event: Getting Halloween and Baby-Ready!

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Dollar Tree to share their special Anniversary Event Bonus Buys with you! This year the Dollar Tree Anniversary Celebration couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for House of Frost! As you all know, I love to get our holiday décor at Dollar Tree and then amplify it with some personal touches. (Remember our first Halloween or the DIY Christmas?) All décor was courtesy of fabulous finds from Dollar Tree.

Now that Baby P will be here any minute, it’s even more important to keep our eyes on our wallet and we’re certainly in luck because Dollar Tree is celebrating their anniversary from September 28, 2014 through October 11, 2014 with TONS of new Bonus Buys for up to 58% more FREE for each item! (Read: Many Dollar Tree favorites are available for a limited time in larger sizes but are still that wonderful $1 price!)

Dollar Tree Anniversary Bonus Buys


Just last weekend Big Bear said we were running low on household cleaning products. (Looks like expectant moms aren’t the only ones who get the urge to aggressively nest!) We’ll definitely be stopping by Dollar Tree to pick up 24-ct. Canisters of Good & Clean® Disinfectant Wipes (so everything is clean and ready for baby), some 25-ct. Packs of Wet Floor Wipes (for rolling around on the ground with our new bundle), and a 10-ct. Pack of Sunbeam® AA Batteries (for all of the baby gadgets we’ve acquired that require batteries.) Can you believe the timing? It couldn’t be more perfect! And y’all know Bear loves to save.

Halloween Headquarters from Dollar Tree

Don’t think for a second I’ll overlook the Halloween décor while I’m there. (And you shouldn’t either!) I can’t resist stocking up on décor, candy, costume accessories, and more! With our little Pumpkin scheduled to make her appearance October 26, and not a second later if I have anything to say about it, we’ll have our house decked out and ready to welcome her in spooky, fun style!


Shop in stores and online from Sept. 28, 2014 through Oct. 11, 2014, but remember — quantities are limited, so hurry in today to stock up on these incredible deals! See you there!

And for my next trick, I will be making a DIY mobile! This one was really easy, but just took a little while, so patience and a tolerance for monotony is a must. Here’s what you will need:

  • an old lampshade you don’t mind destroying converting to something better
  • scrapbook paper
  • scrapbook paper cutter in shape of your choice
  • string
  • glue sticks
