Treats for My Sweets

I found these cute little tin mailboxes at the Target Dollar Spot right after Christmas, and I couldn't resist. I'm not the only one that snapped these up either.  I've seen them on quite a few blogs this month.

I'm only sorry that I didn't pick up more, because I think they make great gifts.

My plan was to hide these and decorate them for the monsters for Valentine's Day. Well, I have no impulse control, so my girlies have already seen them. In fact, they've been begging me to decorate them since I brought them home, because they just can't wait to play post office with them.

They're decorated now, and now that I've snapped some pictures, they're going into hiding until Saturday morning.

I've tucked a few little goodies into their little mailboxes. Not too much though. We're on sugar overload in this house.

I'd give you a tutorial on decorating these little guys, but I think Emily did a fabulous job, so I'm just going to send you over to her. Enjoy!


  1. Looks great Jill! I like that idea. I will post about mine tonight once I finish up a couple of things. :)

  2. That's what I get for avoiding Target lately. I miss out on all the good stuff!

  3. SO cute....what little girl or big girl wouldn't love getting that?????


  4. Those are so cute! My daughter played post office in preschool earlier this week. So, you got the right idea:-)

  8. i'm having issues leaving comments! bummer. i laughed my butt off at the post above. i screamed at my dog today and felt bad afterwards b/c it accomplished nothing. but he dug in the trash and made a huge mess and i just was so frusterated! who screams at the dog?! me.

    cute cute mailbox. i bought a couple of tarjay and didn't get around to decorating them. oh well. add it to the list.

  9. These are darling! Of course our Target didn't have them. I love the dollar area there. Emi and I always come away with a few goodies.
