Archive for the ‘Target’ Category

Target could be one of the most fun but very dangerous places, ever! You go in for ‘just one thing’ and come out with several bags of goodies. When does the “What just happened” occur with you? When you’re checking out? When you get to the car? When you’re unloading ALL of those bags at home? I think they put Vegas-like oxygen in the air so you spend more, just like you gamble more in Vegas!

This was my latest purchase. I am obsessed! White ceramic animals are a very popular trend, horse heads especially. I always think of Lauren at Three Pink Dots when I see something like this because she is a pro at the equine trend. I think I needed more nudging though so when Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick featured this gem from Target last week? I was on it!

Isn’t he pretty? For now, he has a special place on this little side table in the main living room. I can already tell he’ll be making his rounds in the house! Similar styles are usually priced in the hundreds of dollars (like this one at Neiman Marcus) but good ol’ Target had it at $24.99! Talk to me! Conner is still getting used to him…I think it helped a little when I turned the head to the side so the horse wasn’t staring straight at him…

Mercury Glass

I am obsessed with mercury glass and during the holiday season, the obsession steps up another notch! I got several fun little accents on sale at Pottery Barn after last Christmas but plan on doing some serious DIY mercury glass action on all sorts of glass pieces I’ve been collecting. While thinking about this in the back of my mind, I spotted this little baby at Target last week!

They are only 99 cents each and are a perfect votive size to spread throughout the house. Run to your local store – they are a great price and will mix and match with all of your other decor perfectly!

I am so ready to entertain outdoors!! When we moved in last year, we were so busy doing projects and renovations that we missed the opportunity to host barbecues and have friends over whenever we wanted. I can’t wait to make up for that this year!

I would love to have this galvanized party bucket and stand from Pottery Barn to hold our drinks outside. The tall buckets are nice because you don’t have to bend over to get a drink if you’re in a cute sundress. Hah!

I would love to serve grilled burgers and chicken on these super cute melamine plates from Target! I am in love with navy right now and these blue and white Ikat dinnerware sets are so adorable. They are super cheap too! $9.99 for a set of four plates or bowls! This screams summer to me.

I love the blue plates because you can mix and match them with anything including these John Derian for Target appetizer plates. Adorable! You know that I love me some JD and JD for Target? At $7.98 for a set of 8!?! Well, yes! Of course I ordered a set of these. How could I resist? I love the design and the cheery yellow on the edge.

And of course I have to throw in some orange for my fake, in my head, entertaining dinner! What summer isn’t complete without a pop of your favorite color? I love this orange tray from Crate and Barrel for anything but especially love it for serving fresh mojitos in mason jars to my guests. At only $24.95 it is a heck of a price as well!
