Target and other thoughts

Monday, January 10, 2011

Took a spin through Target last week and was surprised to see they were featuring navy and white. 








I'm normally not drawn to the color navy, but somehow this seemed so attractive to me.  I guess because it reminded me of this




which is great because this morning we woke up to this









 

and on a completely unrelated note...


What a jackass...

I love the classic look of navy and white. It can go casual or formal, but is always timeless. I love that Target is stocking some navy and white items.

Oh dear, am laughing my head off. Perfect end to the post, perfect. I'd love to wake up to some snow, guess that's easy for me to say here in Phoenix, I don't have to drive in it.

i love navy and white. I am so glad I saw this. I am using navy and white for my upcoming wedding and love those vases.

He is a jackass.

I love Target, and I love these pieces.
Let it snow. Same around here, but just missed us. Bty, jackass is the word!
Have a great day, Kim.

Kim,
I am semi-obsessed with the jackass aspect of John Edwards, me originally being from North Carolina and all and knowing about him before the country knew about him. Have you ever read the book his aide wrote. It is fantastic trash. I've got a copy I can send to you if you'd like.

It's 22 degrees in Indianapolis this morning. Cold taking my daughter to preschool!

OMgosh Kim wait until you see a post I have coming up. Blue and white are my colors of choice for 2011!!! I have it ready to be published, Thanks for the heads up I might have to venture to Target and see if ours has these fun items. Love the pillow and I love the stripes!!! Go figure,lol.
Lots of cold and snow over the country, Mr. Winter is officially here, Brrrr!! Happy Monday,Kathysue

Good morning, Kim. We've got snow and ice today as well, and the temps aren't going to be above freezing all week. What weirdness! Love navy and white. Throw in a pop of green, yellow or orange and it's a great neutral too. Loving those navy lamps! (oh, ditto on the one with the sappy grin!)

SHERRY HART said...

Kim....same thing at our house here in Atlanta!!! Wish I could get to target today to check it out! AND...there are no words to describe what a skank John Edwards is.....I read that book and it was a page turner.

Sara Mueller said...

I was just a Target the other day and also was attracted to these. I love Target.

Lissa @ After Adornment said...

Love those jars! Gonna have to go check those out. Will have to be later this week since we have the same outside here! And yes, agree wholeheartedly on the last though...scum bag!

JMW said...

I've always loved navy & white. Such a gorgeous, elegant combo. Will have to make my way to Target to see what they have available.

And, ditto to Edwards. :)

I saw this line at Target the other day and I loved it. They had a rug for $20 that I wanted to buy. Sense kicked in, because I have no where for navy in my house.

Saw the lamps one day and the next they were gone. We only have one target here in southern maryland though. Makes me want to take a cruise instead of my husband. Someplace sunny and luxurious. Love the last pic, you rock!

Jenny Castle Design said...

OHHH such good information, I LOVE navy. A trip to Target has been added to my "to do" list, thanks to you!! :)

My Interior Life said...

I haven't poked around Target lately so you've given me something to look forward to. I love the lamps! We got a good bit of snow too but not as much as Chattanooga. Crazy!

By the way, I just nominated you for a "Stylish Blogger Award!" Check it out.

Tiffany @ Savor Home said...

What would we do without Target?? I can't wait to see if they are carrying that line here. And you are SO funny! I agree with that last comment...

Els Manning said...

ha ha that was nice for closing statement. Heard that Elizabeth scratched him out of her will... so i so so hope that it was not revealed till the reading. Would be priceless to see his sappy face finding out he got cut. I think that Elizabeth had such class. And i watched the documentary on him a while back. And so was scratching my head on that one. So yeah... well put.
Do also love target. We have one 5 min. away... love it~

Amy R. said...

I totally agree that John Edwards is a jackass..yuck:(

P.S. I am sick of snow. Need sun.

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

Brrr...I got a little chilly looking at those pics! And yes, major jackass!

Kendall said...

Yes, navy and white will be classic forever.

Been waking up to that same scene around here for too long already and winter is far from over! :-) i don't usually "do" blue and white, but I really like what you're showing here from Target.

L.Duncan@Home23DuncanBoys said...

My sister in law was sending me pictures of these items! I wish I had somewhere to use them. And we are iced in over here. My husband and sister are determined to make it to work so I've given them the name you gave John Edwards....
