Tea & Mary Engelbreit clearance alert


We began the week looking at jewels from a princess, but today we're keeping it real and coming back down to earth a bit by touring the dollar bins at Michaels! These cute Mary Engelbreit lunch bags were part of my Christmas gift from a friend, and while I strongly suspect she paid full price, I bought five more packs of them on clearance for 5 for $1 a few days ago. Thank you, Mr. Clearance Bin!

Another "Mary" treat I received from my friend was packaged in this adorable Chinese takeout container. Some of these were also on clearance at Michaels, but alas, none of the ones left had the teapot design. Still, you may want to look for these at *your* Michaels!

Another gift from my friend? These adorable teapot placemats, which I'm thinking of turning into tea-themed file folders. Again, some of these were in the 20-cent clearance bin a few days ago.

And finally ... this is a new product so it'll cost the entire dollar (for now), but I think this Mary Engelbreit teapot print ribbon is absolutely worth it! Has anyone found any more ME clearance items that are tea-themed?

Ohhhh, Angela ... the little green monster in me is awake. "My" Michaels closed several years ago, so no ME pretties for me. Don't you just love how she makes everything tea so cute! B-)

I found the cute take-out containers at Michael's when I was visiting my SIL 2 weeks ago; when I returned home, I went straight to my local Michael's and bout 2 dozen more! They are wonderful to fill with cookies and other treats to give out to my friends! Now I'm headed out to find the cute teapot ribbon you showed!! Susan T.

All your ME things are cute, and what bargains. I checked my local Michael's and they have nothing left. :-(

I haven't been to Michael's for a couple weeks. Now I need to go. Love the ribbon.

So I went to Michael's after reading your post this morning even though it was cold and snowing here. No such luck. Not even the cute ribbon. I picked up some other things though, imagine that! Thanks for sharing, and if Michael's knew they'd thank you too!

I love the ribbon! I haven't seen this at Michaels, but won one on eBay last year - an ME teapot sewing 'basket'. It's a stuffed teapot with room inside for sewing items and the whole 'pot' serves as a pincushion. It's actually not that practical for sewing, but I love it anyway. You can probably find them still on eBay for less than $10 . . .
