Welcome to LilacsNDreams today everyone! Glad to have you stopping by! I am excited, and hope I can slow down enough to get it all out here for you. Saturday we closed on the house, got the keys, and by Monday they should be moved out for us to have full possession of the home. So excited, but do dread the packing, and moving part. After doing that Saturday morning we then went furniture shopping. Stopped at 1 store, but didn’t quite have anything for our tastes. Second store we went to was well worth the time spent there shopping for everything we wanted. Just need to visit again to see if we can get our new dining table set there. Unfortunately, time got away from us. We did all we could, and have a very good start. Couch ordered, and delivered in August. End of July the love seat, 2 rocker chairs, mattress with new headboard and frame for our son will be delivered. We also need to get our own bed from another place since we are wanting one of those raising/lift beds. Just so excited about all of this.
Tonight I got a little bit excited again. I was reading a newsletter I receive that discusses things with EBay, Etsy, selling online, changes with things, etc. I read 1 topic about Google working with some of the platforms with selling, and 1 of them was with GoDaddy. I have had my domains there for years. So, I looked at things a little closer with numbers of course. For the monthly fee at GoDaddy for what they had to offer it seemed very intriguing. Pay them a fee for the exposure I can receive with Google, and social media places. Not have all the rules you have with some of the other platforms, and to be selling again using 1 of my domains is pretty exciting. I am anxious to get moved, and very anxious to be working with this at GoDaddy to start showing my products and selling them. I can’t wait to get started. It’s been a long time since I was excited to sell. I’m so excited that this move cannot happen fast enough now.
I’ll keep you all updated as I progress along. I have LilacsNDreams dot com domain directed at my blog/website which I can always change with ease at GoDaddy. For now to start with I will be using LilacsNDreams Shop domain for my GoDaddy store. I’m so excited that I’m more focused with this tonight then with moving. Been a while since I felt like this with everything happening with the pandemic, shut downs, being isolated, and losing freedom for a while there. I’m so excited I almost feel alive again!
Wish me luck everyone! I’ll keep you posted with things as I figure them out. I hate that I will be waiting till after we move, but I am going to play around with wording, setting things up on my GoDaddy shop, colors, pictures, and all of that fun stuff.
Thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Till the next time my friends have fun in all you do, be safe, and we’ll see you again. Toodles . . . . .

Dollar Tree Items Repurpose Restyle DIY Crafting Home Decor with LilacsNDreams. Welcome, and glad to have you stop by!
Hope everyone had a great, enjoyable, and safe 4th of July!
How many times have you found something in the store, or online you’d like to have until you see the price. Sometimes it’s an ouch reaction, and then the shipping unfortunately can play a factor with the online purchase too. You see something with home decor, maybe kitchen decor, and really would like to have it. So, you spend time looking around stores in person, and you search online too. Everywhere you look some of the prices are out of range, doesn’t feel like its worth the price for how it’s made, and so on. You decide not to get it because of those things along with your choices of no too. Yet, you still think about it. That would look great there, I could put it here, that would bring out the color in my room, and many other thoughts. The price is not affordable, the husband/wife might not like that amount spent, and you wonder why it can’t be found cheaper. Why can’t they make things for someone like me to afford?
There are some ways to get around these issues, and have your home resembling what others may have. What’s even better is that you don’t have to spend the price they did, but still have something like them only better. It will have it’s own personal touch either by you, or someone else who did the work. If you like to craft, do things with your hands, are some what creative you will enjoy this, and understand. Don’t worry if you’re not because there are many people out there doing these things, and offering them for others to enjoy in their homes as well.
If you don’t already know the Dollar Tree Stores have items that are great for crafting items you see somewhere else. Dollar Tree is used a lot for items in these projects. Along with items from there you might have some extra things at home that can be used too. You sometimes can find things from Dollar General Stores to use along with different thrift stores too. Items from there along with Dollar Tree makes some really neat things.
