Target Finds

I haven't been shopping at Target very often since the breach, I still buy groceries, but I have severely cut out the superfluous little random items, that are so enticing at Target. Even after reading this buzzfeed list, I thought yeah that's not me anymore.......  well that lasted for a couple months lol.

Here's what I found at a smaller Target, that's not super close to my house, and I probably visit it once or twice a year. I'm so excited to share the cute items I found with you :)

 As you might know I am sucker for banners, it's instant festiveness and a pop of happy!
I had wanted to make a simple heart banner for Valentine's Day and that didn't happen, so when I saw this bunny banner I snatched it up! It was so adorable, and who doesn't love burlap? Now, I could have made this myself, I'm ashamed to say I have burlap fabric in my stash and as an avid crafter, I felt a slight pang of guilt for not putting it down and vowing to make it myself. But sometimes you need some pre-made happy. This burlap bunny banner is from their awesome Threshold line.

I couldn't find it online, but I took a picture of the box so if you are interested you know what to look for :) I found it on an endcap in the housewares section.

The second amazing find was a set of three journals, perfect for tech geek in your life.
It was one of those things, that makes you stop in your tracks and go back and re-examine. I must admit I am a bit of a tech geek and this was just too hilarious to pass up. Especially since I had never seen it before at any of the Targets I regularly visit. I found this in the gift section by the party stuff/gift bags, it's a random smattering of stuff that kind of reminds me of the impulse buys they have at Urban Outfitters.

 I couldn't find these online either but the brand is called green inspired, just wanted to show you the back of the package so you know what to look for at your store. Here are the green inspired products that do show up online I have the trio of traveling notebooks I keep for notes on the go :)

And because this Target was on the small side, on the opposite side of the aisle I spied the awesome Oh Joy! party collection!!!

I have admired Oh Joy! for a very long time, she has amazing books on starting your business and blogging and she really sets the bar high in the blogging world.
If you don't know her, go and discover her immediately! Her awesome design aesthetic and eye for color, come together in this lovely, adorable party collection. I had to grab the scallop party hats with gold dots, they are so adorable they make me want to plan a party around them lol.
And I thought they were a steal at $3.00 for 8 hats in different colors.

What have you found at Target lately that you were really excited about? Have you been shopping there a lot?
