~ More Target Bargains ~

So ... I have an herb garden.

Those are words that I never actually expected to spill forth from this mouth.

It all started when one of my daughters tempt-texted me with a picture of some herb labels that were on sale ... you know where.

When I went to my (one of about 7 within close proximity to my home) Target, they didn't have any left in the herbs I would want to plant ... so I pretty much gave up on the idea.

Yes.  I admit it.  I was in it for the labels more than I was in it for the herbs.

However ... later in the week ... finding myself at a different Target, I found these colorful little signs sporting the names of my herbs of choice.

I actually purchased these plants at WalMart, which had a much better/healthier selection than the large home renovation store I went to earlier in the week.  Just sayin'.

The oddest part about this whole process is how thrilled I was to plant them and add their color to my porch.  Even odder is that I plan to actually cook with them.

Yes.  I said cook.

And to add to my Target bargain-y week ... I found this very plain (but oval shaped) lamp shade on yet a different day.  It cost me a whopping $11.88.

The price ... sweet.  The shade ... dull.

So using some ribbon I had owned for a couple of years (which under Section 2.8 of the Bargain Code officially pronounces it free) ...

I embellished the shade using a fabric glue stick. 

I'm not gonna lie ... I am very proud of my weekend's work.

How was your weekend?

~ Turquoise from Target ~

I was beyond giddy to see these lovely blue canning jars at my favorite shopping establishment.

I knew immediately that ...
(a) I had to own them and ...
(b) I would clearly not use them for canning.

I love them with out anything in them because of the way the light bounces off of them.
I can't wait to use them for lemonade.

And they came in quite handy when a friend dropped some gerber daisies at my door.


Thank you Target!

~ The Spice of Sea Life ~


Most quilters who have been at it for a number of years, tend to lean towards a certain style or palette of colors.

About 5 years ago, when I made my choice as to where I would lean ... I chose the subject matter.

Having chosen to sew all things coastal, I have opened up my heart, mind and ... stash ... to a myriad of possiblilites.  This has been ever so apparently (and delightfully fun!) to me these past few weeks as I have worked on this project.

I am making iPad covers to sell here  at The JOY Expo this Saturday, June 8th.
With every single one, I tried to envision some new individual's style and palette, while still able to keep to my subject matter.

It has been an absolute JOY.
