i said the "S" word.
now---i didn't say TARGET sucks...just the one near my house.
i am at target at least twice a month....sometimes to buy groceries, or a birthday present or clothes. (or whatever any of us go into target to buy before we inevitably end up with a cart full of things we didn't intend to purchase!) while i am there, i always pop over to the "home decor" section to see what nate or threshold has been up to. and usually i see....a sparse selection of the newest offerings, few particleboard bookcases, a dumpy ottoman or two, and a handful of lamps that i swear have been there for 3 years.
last week, i was at a home consultation a good 20 miles form my house, and decided to swing by a target to see if they had any better home stuff. i have been seeing all kinds of cute stuff online, and i wondered if ANY of it was in stores. (cuz it most certainly wasn't in MY target.)
i hit the jackpot!
i couldn't believe how much stuff this target carried!
i felt like my target has been cheating on me with other targets in the area! why is all the good stuff going everywhere else?? this target had AISLES of great home decor items! what the??? i mean, take a look:
this table online, but it was even prettier in person!
these preserved boxwoods look great ALL year round, but especially festive around the holidays.
wisteria has some that look very similar, for 2-3 times the price.
i still haven't fallen out of love with antlers and deer heads, but this display made me
feel like the trend is a little overdone....
it's graphic without being too much, and the dots will coordinate with any pattern and can easily go masculine or feminine, depending on what it is paired with.
little desk is a winner!
little tweed chair! it would look so pretty paired with a fun patterned pillow.
if i didn't already have a lamp that could be your twin, i would have taken you home with me!
these make great hampers?
would look great mixed in with a gallery wall....
makes me think of a certain song that has been playing way too much at my house lately!
(what does the fox say??)
and finally--loved these drink containers.
SO...if the target near your house sucks, like the one near mine---you might want to take a little field trip to the next closest one. you might just hit the jackpot, like it did!
