Oh Target, You so so get me! ( a happy haul)


Jenny and her trusty space heater were like white on rice. My wintertime appendage, hummed along with my entire workday. Day in, day out. So it's no surprise that the absence of it's comforting hum, due to the warm weather of the past few days, would effect me so much. It was part of my workday much like the hum of the air conditioner becomes part of your summertime sleep ritual. How on that first cool autumn night without the AC the silence of the night is deafening, and you wonder how in the world you'll ever be able to sleep again without the sound of the AC lulling you off to dreamland. Well, I guess the wicked month of March sensed my unease...because today it is absolutely FREEZING once again, and my trusty space heater is at my side and humming with life. 
Hey March "Thanks, but no thanks!" 
As close as my space heater and I have become, I'd be more than happy to see her go. Just give me back my warm weather!
Just yesterday it was Spring jacket weather and I celebrated this fact by taking a day trip to Target. It had been forever since I had been there and it seems that Target had been anticipating my triumphant return to their aisles. Upon crossing their threshold I saw that they had rolled out the red carpet for me. I was greeted with pink and aqua galore! The dollar bins! Like a moth to a flame, like a bee to honey, so is Jenny to dollar bins filled with cute.


We grabbed a cart, and began filling the kid's seat with what I call "littles". First, these aqua and silver notecards kill me! Their accompanying envelopes have an adorable polka dotted border. The loose hand painted motif is very art journal-y...and yes...$1.00! The only items not found in the dollar bins are these sweet cupcake notecards. They were $4.99 and can be found in the stationary section.


This faux leather journal has lined pages inside. That cover pattern just makes me so happy! I'd love a stencil like it for art journaling. The journal is the perfect size for keeping in my bag for quick little ideas for classes, projects, designs, blogging, or shopping lists! And it was $3.00.


How pretty are these?! Little zippered pouches made of very thin material. Great for make up brushes, or pens & pencils. I bought two...because...$1.00! 


And then adorable aqua paper clips! Ah!! $1.00! 


I'm a sucker for these oldschool date roll stamps! How could I pass up this set! Look at the tiny little aqua ink pad! $3.00


Classic little alphabet stamp set. $3.00



I had blogged these chairs from IKEA when they first came out, and they remained on my wish list, awaiting my next trip to IKEA. Since they are now only $10.00 I had every intention of picking up at least two of 'em on my next trip there. Beyond cute! 


Well, it looks like Target jumped in at the last second and stole the show! I almost died when I walked down the aisle and came upon these chairs! and ummm...yessss! YAAASSS! Could you die? No really, right?! And I love the pattern even more than the IKEA version. It's a bit more vintage. like vintage wallpaper patterns.


Doesn't the pattern remind you of the motifs on our JUMBO hand painted vintage wallpaper wall


If you don't have a Target near you, they do sell them online! And guess what...$12.99!! They look bluer in the pic on the Target website than they are in real life. They are truer in color to the photos you see here.

So yeah...pretty great right? I'm in pink and aqua heaven right now! I also grabbed an adorbs aqua wallet and a new lipstick that I'll share another day!

If you look back at the pics on this post (which only represent the tip of the Target iceberg), I think it goes without saying that this here blogger, and you there Everyday is a Holiday readers, are how shall I say it??...Target's target demographic right now. 
So I simply had to share! 

You are welcome. wink.

  11. It will be used for my extra work table/sewing table. I redid my studio all white with shots of aqua/turquoise and red so it's perfect (I'm going to make a seat cushion for it) So thanks again for posting about it.

  12. Ahahaha too funny! When I saw the post on facebook with the pic of the aqua Target chairs I thought hey, those like similar to these ones I bought from IKEA... =) But when I commented I hadn't clicked on the post yet! Now that I have, I had to mention it - of course you knew about the IKEA ones! Man, sounds like the Target dollar bin is getting better!

  18. Hi there Jenny, I just discovered your blog today and can't stop reading every post! So much to catch up on! I was already feeling a sincere kinship being that I am from northern NJ as well. Of course there's also your choice in colors, designs, decor, and hair (I have pastel pink hair too, I'm curious to know what brand you're using) plus you and your husband just seem like "my type of people" :) But now I know we are kindred spirits! You should see my target collection from the $1 bins! It started about a month ago and now I cant stop buying all the adorable notecards, paper, labels, etc its crazy....Anyway, needed to comment, it was all too much to keep to myself!
    Many blessings sent to you all :)
