Cheap chic at Target!

by Shelly

After my most recent jaunt to our local Target I came home hiding my purchases a bit more than usual. Come on ladies..you know what I’m talking about. You spent just a tad too much while at Tarjay and so it becomes a bit of a game to not only get your one too many bags in the house without the other half seeing it, but then casually pulling it off when he asks, “Honey is that new?”. NOOOOOO!  Of course it isn’t! Yeah right. :)

Well, I’m guilty. It was just too good! Not only did I pick up this cute summer hat for days by the pool and hanging on the beach…..

I also snagged this cute little sundress for my Ellie. Perfect for hot summer barbeques and soirees. Yes, my kid goes to soirees. hahaha!!
 But then I stopped in my tracks at some of their newest home decor. Come to Mama!!! Too cute! If you are looking for some cheap things to spruce up your home Target has got it. I picked up these awesome glass lamps…still not sure where I’m putting them..but that’s not the point. :)

These were another cute find…love love love those shades!
Striped Lamp Shade 
and
Glass Lamp Base




Adorable for a dash of Americana just in time for the 4th of July! Throw a few on a neutral sofa or an all white bed.

I so wish they had these frames in multiple sizes! The pattern is just too cute and of course the white looks fresh and summery.

Their decorative half hour glass comes in three fun colors: bright blue, green and yellow. This would look be perfect atop a stack of books on a coffee table or added into a bookshelf vignette. And check out who’s jumped on the “Keep Calm and Carry On” bandwagon!
That pillow…the blue lamp…LOVE!
If you’re trying to save money…DO NOT..I repeat..DO NOT go into Target! But if you’re looking for those little somethings for yourself and your home to bring in the warm weather, well you can’t beat it. 
Now back to nursing my sniffling, sneezing self. Colds..ugh.

I have been avoiding Target lately for this very reason! That place is so dangerous!! I finally caved yesterday, but I forced myself to grab a basket (NOT a begging-to-be-filled cart) and rushed through the store!

I need that hat! Thanks for doing all the scouting. Oh, and if you can fit any of those lamps in my DR, I wouldn't mind :)

You are the greatest! I have been looking at similar striped lamp shades on lampsplus.com for months and I haven't gotten up the nerve to order them. Now I can just go to Target and buy them! Awesome.
