ode to target

I may have mentioned my capacity to wander around target for hours and hours- perusing the home section, wandering through the holiday goodies, finding all sorts of lovely things that I probably don’t need but think I do. I just love that place.

Today, for example, Burke and I spent an hour and a half meandering up and down Target’s aisles. And actually, I found so many fabulous and inspirational lovelies that I thought I’d share my findings with y’all.
1- This red cake stand is part of the 2009 Christmas line. I love it. It is on my list of things-to-buy at 6:00 am on December 26th.

2- After we made the ruffle purse for Trish, Jordi planted in my head the idea of a ruffle clutch. And I can’t stop thinking about it. So now I am on the lookout for a clearanced clutch just waiting to be embellished with ruffle-y goodness. Today I saw a purple one that’d be super fun (and match my almost-everyday purple shoes!).

3- I saw some fabulous cableknit pillows on clearance in the “switching-all-the-time” decor section (you know, by the frames?). I love cableknit. It makes me want to sew a pillow cover using a felted sweater… actually, I think that the sale was good enough that it’d make more sense just to buy Target’s version. But I do have felted wool on my “Supplies To Use Up” list. You know, so I can buy more of them to restock my stash.

4- I know, I’m a big dork, but I love learning little random facts about people (like what their favorite family tradition was growing up, or where they’d go if they were given a trip to anywhere in the world). There’s a Christmas Conversation Tin at Target (and I am certain that you could create your own) that’d be the perfect catalyst for such random fact gathering over the holidays. Fun, right?
