Dollar Store Swap

I recently participated in a dollar store swap. The only requirement was that each item had some part purchased from any dollar store. I chose Dollar Tree. My supplies were: party favor trophy cups, measuring spoons, plastic fern and a pink plastic desk and chair set.
These are the finished items. The trophy became a stone planter for the fern. The desk and chair set got a shabby chic finish and the measuring spoons became nested mixing bowls. (I got that idea from one of your blogs. I'm sorry that I don't remember which one. Please comment here and give yourself credit. :) )

The items I received were far more creative than mine were. Some of them were a mini garden, a cake decorating prep board, an ironing board, a basket of laundry, petite fours from pencil erasers, a shabby chic chair, a round dining table, a fruit bowl and a chandelier (from a ping pong ball half.)

I am sure your minis can easily compete with all the other dollar stores minis.
Very good and creative ideas here.
