Last weekend, as I was waiting to hear news about my house, I wandered the aisles at Target in desperate need of distraction.
My plan was genius - Target is always a wonderful distraction, because instead of thinking about what's bothering me, I think about all the wonderful things I want to buy.
My plan was a flop. Yes, I was thinking about all the wonderful things I wanted to buy. BUT - I was also thinking about where they would go in my new home. Seriously. bad. plan.
Though I may not have gotten the house, I did walk away a fun purchase and some items to add to my future to-buy list.
That's one thing I love about Target - that no matter the current season or style, I can always find something that I love, not just like, LOVE. Here are some more things that I love -
Now this is a plant I could actually keep alive. Ps. It's fake.
Functional items don't have to be boring and ugly.
This reminds me of what I saw at Trohv.
This lamp is incredibly similar to West Elm's perch lamp (but bigger and less expensive).
It also comes in blue.
The deep blue of this side table is really stunning.
Another functional item that is also stylish.
The color of these vases is what drew me to them. The picture doesn't do it justice.
I own one of these and it's my favorite clock. It's subtle and classy.
Maybe the prospect of having my own kitchen threw me off my game, but there was something about these 2.5 foot utensils that intrigued me.
This is the hardware I had picked out for my future kitchen. Let's not talk about it. It's too depressing.
If the tops of these baskets were white instead of pink or teal, they would have come home with me.
I really love these baskets. Target has them in several different sizes and they are a nice, affordable storage option.
You may have seen these guys on my facebook page. I love them. Especially the rhino.
