quality time at tar-gey

The girls and I had a date with my mom yesterday. We decided to head south and go shopping in the states. My mom wanted to check out Ross and I wanted to go to Target and check out the Liberty of London line.




The line debuted last Sunday, so I was hoping it wouldn't be slim pickings. I was so bummed when I totally missed out on the Orla Kiely line last year.

To my delight, they still had quite a few things to choose from. I picked up this wallet (it's my new favorite thing!) Of course I had to pick up one of their floral print scarves!



I also managed to snag a few items for my new craft room:
LOVE this pillow!

Some milk crates to house my yarn, sewing patterns etc.


There were also some items on my list, that I didn't get a chance to buy because some other lucky people snatched them up before I was able to.
This pastry stand... I was hoping to use this in my craft room to hold sewing notions.


This lamp and chair. But alas, none were to be found.






I was also hoping to purchase a watering can and some gardening gloves. But all the gardening items are so sold out I can't even find a picture on the Target site to show you.

All in all, it was a great day. I love spending time with my mom and so do my girls.

Thanks Mom!

i am obsessed w/ the liberty of london collection! it's kind of funny that every target store in my area carries different items! i am currently eyeing the two tier tray and that is sold out at all local stores near me! and i haven't even seen that chair at my store and it also has TONS of the gardening stuff!!

Megan said...

LOVE all your floral selections, esp your wallet. VERY NICE!

Becky said...

Tar-gey is like a guilty pleasure. It's dangerous in there. You go to buy pull ups and diapers and wham -- they've got you buying all sorts of things I may not necessarily put in the "need" column!

btw - Enjoying your blog.

I made sure to stop by Target (twice in fact) during the weekend of the Liberty of London Launch, and picked up several of those wonderful storage bins, a scarf, and the large platter. I was seriously crushing on one of the bikes, but they're not available in my local stores, sadly. But I feel so lucky to have snatched up what I did!

I was totally bummed when I was late shopping for the Orla Kiely line. There was a pitcher I was eyeing. :( There are some really cute tops and dresses in the Liberty line. Sigh...I love Target!

Elaine said...

oooh --- we were there on saturday evening but i didn't end up picking up anything for myself :(

that's a great little wallet you picked up! i'm so envious --- i need a new wallet for myself.

OMG.... I love it! I love your wallet. Oh man.... I think it's time for a roadtrip to Tarjay! ;) Was it really that crazy in the store that people were snatching everything up? BOOOOOOOOO

Oh how I love the Liberty of London line. I got the square milk crate the other day and absolutely LOVE it. I think that pattern is my fave- so bright and cheery. I love that wallet too and saw one, but that will have to wait for another day!! :)
