Right on Target

I've had a love affair with Target for many years. Its been my place of refuge, a place to seek peace, to wander aimlessly .. just me and my cart.

At first Target was far away, there wasn't enough time to get there during school. Target wasn't available till 10am. Kindergarten was over at 11:45. It didn't take long though, and Target came to town. I could meet up with Target pretty much morning, noon and night. And I did, my friends, I did.

As the years went by, Target and I began to drift apart a bit. My constant need to meet up for a quiet moment diminished, and then there was the facelift.. Target, how could you? don't you know I love you no matter what?
And then...

I saw this, and this, and even this. At first it was the cool garland. I have no idea what I'll do with it, but I own it. Then I saw the post with all the lovely aqua and I went back, I'd seen most of that stuff, but still, I had to see it again. I'm in that kind of mood, obsessed. Restless.

Here's what I did find as well as the fabric purchases of this week. The earrings will be something else, I love the look, and they'll find their way into something, a zipper pull, a little pin for a jacket. Maybe they'll get added to the bracelet. Which again, Target, you amaze me with the lengths you'll go to please me. The crystal ornament (and its companions) will be set aside for a denim project. I have seen somewhere in my travels with Frankie, some jeans that had some kind of cool crystal and crap filled trim hanging off a belt loop. I want to work on that idea. And at $.99, Target has the answer. Wouldn't they be cute as a zipper pull on a fancy purse? Made from this?

Oh Target...



I wish a lovely treasure filled week for you my blog loving friends.

I'm have a close relationship with The Big T myself. It was not love at first sight. Way back in the day, The Big T was born one night in the graveyard of Gemco's ashes. Ok, it's nice, it's big, it's clean... my goodness it's red!

The years went by and something magical happened... The Big T grew up, and grew with style and fun! Now I can't live without T. My T lives an hour away... but it's ok, it's worth the drive.

Calistoga? Carmel? Aspen? My retreat and respite is my little spa called Target! I can wonder the aisles for hours. PKM... we may not *have* Ikea (sniff, sniff)... but we do *have* Target! ~Whew... What a relief!

I wish I could edit my typos! I bet Target sells something that could help me with that!

Oh you girls are all posting about the Christmas goodies at Target. I don't think we have anywhere similiar here in the UK selling such cute stuff at such good prices.

Well, shoot. I think I need to go back. I so did not get enough tissue paper and my cool retro Target snowman tells me he's lonely...

Sing it sister!! I LOVE Target! I got that cutie garland there too - it's so cool! Now I have to go back and look for the aqua stuff - didn't see that - I have to go when I have time to browse. (I'm usually rushing in for little kid birthday gifts - straight to the Lego aisle and out!). Thanks for the heads up on the cute stuff!

You could probably leverage some pretty awesome swaps with that garland. I know Angry Chicken and Inside the Black Apple were both lamenting that they missed out on it.

You're killing me! I promised a teacher friend I would boycott Target (as in: forever!) and I have been faithful to my promise. Yes I have. But boy do I want to jet over to Newburg and roam those isles.

I hear you on the Target love affair. I went there on Saturday (remember my mentioning my bag I was hiding under my desk) and found some ornaments and the garland that wee wonderfuls mentioned. Everythign was just beautiful. I hadn't been to Target in months and could have spent 4 times as much as I did. Well should I have had that much money. It was a lovely distraction from life.
