Hey HEY! Wow, this morning was rough. I don’t really mind the time change much but that first Monday morning is killer, right? Yikes. Hence the late post today.
Because we now have more daylight and it’s like Mother Nature knew that was happening and we are having absolutely gorgeous weather (for the next couple of weeks at least), I am so SO ready for spring. This is such a great time of the year – and it’s one of the many reasons I love living where the seasons change. It’s renewing and refreshing to have these beautiful days after months of being inside.
Well, those incredibly brilliant people at Target must know this because they are so spot on with some of the stuff in their dollar section right now. I had to show you some of these goodies in case you haven’t been in. I had gone about six weeks without a Target trip (I KNOW!) and now I’ve been there three times in a week (partly to pick up some more of the things I’m sharing today).
First of all, I must tell my Canadian readers that you may want to look away…this may be too much for you. I hear Target came and went pretty quick, what’s up with that? I cry for you Canada.
OK, here are some of my favorite little finds from the infamous “dollar spot.” These little pails are just the cutest:
They had solid colored ones as well. I came up with a fun little project to use these for that I hope to get done today. I love the colors on them…LOVE. That watercolor look is huge right now and I’m obsessed with it.
These jars are actually $3 for the two:
I’m not a huge aqua fan but when it comes to jars I can’t resist. I got three sets of these over the past week, and I may go back for one more aqua set. I plan to use them in the loft when it gets a makeover sometime this year. (These jars are super popular and no one can find them anymore! These blue Ball jars cost more but are even cuter.)
I always pick up a bunch of notepads – even though I already have a eleventy billion of them:
They’re hard to resist, right? I also grab them for quick teacher/friend gifts too.
I do the same with the pen and pencil sets. They had so many cute office supplies that matched:
So fresh and pretty! Pens and pencils are another item I can’t resist.
They had some cute crafty supplies too. I picked up these three:
I love those little stamps – I got some from the dollar spot years back but lost some of the letters. These are a little bigger than the ones I had before.
And finally, I picked up a couple of these cute little planters with the chalkboard too:
They had aqua and pink as well. Precious.
I used my clear jars for oats and chocolate chips (ingredients for my peanut butter energy balls, yum):
And I placed the burlap “S” in my boxwood wreath on the pantry for now:
I’m hoping to add it to a front door wreath eventually, but first I have to decide what will go on the front door. ;)
Have you visited this little (evil) spot of Target? It’s ridiculously fun. And dangerous. You’ve been warned. Have you found any great goodies there lately?
