$1 'Cottagey/Vintagey-feel' MUGS

I'm a $1 fanatic. Whether it's the Dollar Store or hitting up the $1 bins at Target and Michaels. (This is where my husband steps in and says..."you know it all adds up right?")
Yes, yes, I know. But they were too great to pass up. I was rummaging through the Michael's bins and found these beauties! (I thought to call my sister who collects mugs, but remembered that she doesn't have a Micheals in her town).

I always find myself reaching in the cupboard for the "Rest a minute" mug with the vintage chair. It's like my own santuary filled with some herbal tea and my own resting chair. One time my husband was pouring us some orange juice for breakfast, he filled up the DISCOVER, and REST A MINUTE mug. He gave me the DISCOVER one and I almost was mad at him for it. Then I realized I was being irrational and that I also didn't want to fess up and tell him my personalized bond with the REST A MINUTE mug. SO I let it slide....just this once. But while he's at work, I hold that mug tenderly.
(I grabbed the last two pics from another blogger, because I didn't buy those two mugs, But I'm wishing I would have)
What do you grab at the DOLLAR BINS?!

Ohh I got 3 keys from there, a white ball with an "S" on it, and a stamp with a candelabra on it that says shine! I was in a hurry, but would have liked to get some of the knobs they had there. They matched your mugs. I probably would have grabbed those too, but my store didn't have any.

I grabbed those as well! In Canada the dollar bins are actually $1.50 bins. BUT they were half off and I had a store wide coupon for 25% off! I got all of them, I'm going to put flowers in the at my wedding and let the guests take them home :)
