I popped into Target the other night to grab something quickly from the pharmacy. But you know how it goes … you go in for one thing and walk out with a million others.
On this particular night, I actually only left with one thing not on my list (#proudmoment #suchrestraint) but I couldn’t help myself from wandering the aisles for just a few minutes looking at all the cute things.
I’ve done this style of post before – right here about cute stuff at IKEA – and it was a reader favorite. So I’m back with a Target edition. These are just 20 cute things I found in the home goods section that caught my eye.
We’ll start with this handsome mug. I almost put this one in my basket because it goes so well with my black and white coffee mugs (seen here).
Just around the corner from the mugs sat these cute marble bowls. They call them dip bowls and I’m not exactly sure what that means, but I would use it more as a decorative item on a shelf or for holding jewelry on a bathroom counter.
I don’t know what it is about coasters, but I like them. These wood with brass accents are so modern, yet classic and they would make a really great hostess gift for holiday parties.
I only barely glanced at the Christmas stuff because I’m just not quite ready. But these gold candle holders caught my eye. They could stay all year long on a mantle or dining table. I don’t currently own candlesticks and I’m thinking maybe I should.
Oh, boy. Magnolia does it again with this year’s Christmas line. Again, I didn’t fully immerse myself in it because I have willpower and am not ready to let my brain think about Christmas. This wreath, however, was too good to miss. It is faux eucalyptus and very pretty.
Do you have one (or four) of these hand towels yet? They’ve been in the store for a while and I can’t stop them. The stripes, the fringe, the absorbent material. This is what we use in our guest bath.
I’m on the hunt for a new fall-to-winter transition scent. This Marine Moss candle from Magnolia is nice. It is clean and not too earthy. And, I like the white tin.
Remember how I said I only walked out with one extra item? It was this candle. I have it burning right now and it smells delightful. I’m not so sure it smells either fallish or winterish, but I like it anyway.
This wood frame with mat is such a good basic. I have two of them in our house (one seen here in my office).
I’ve got my eye on this lamp for a corner of our family room and have only ever seen it online. I went by the lamp section and it was on display and I like it very much in person as well.
Perhaps you know my love of fresh greenery. Well, lately I’ve been drawn to vases with narrower openings to hold stems and branches. This bubble vase is such a pretty gray-blue color and a great size and shape.
How cute are these pom pom trimmed curtains? Now, here’s my problem with Target curtains: they are way too short for most windows. But, did you know you can find longer lengths online? They have 84″, 95″ and 108″. Also, I’m a little confused as to why they are not sold in pairs, but alas, they are not. These are single panel so make sure you buy two if you order them for your house.
It’s time to update our sheets for our bed. We rotate between two sets and both are getting a little tired. This set is one that we’ve used for a few years and I still love it. Do I just get a new one in this exact same style?!
This sweet sweater blanket lives happily on Audrey’s bed (seen here) and in the gray-green version on Ethan’s bed (seen here). The pink one is the perfect shade of dusty pink, they add texture and are warm and cozy.
This little throw blanket was just down the way from the sweater one and its fringe has me tempted. But do you know what I don’t need? Another throw blanket.
Do you know what I don’t need even more than more throw blankets? More pillows. Oh, but how I want a pair of these for my bed! I prefer down-filled inserts – which Target does not do – so I just open up one seam, pull out the polyfill, put in a down insert and then hand-stitch it closed. It only takes a few minutes and makes the pillows more comfortable and they stay nice and plump.
Over in the bathroom section, I found this striped shower curtain.
And this striped bath mat. Can one have too many stripes?!
Okay, back through the Christmas section I went to get to the checkout and there these darling stools sat. They would be great for a little side table or in a bathroom to hold towels and soaps next to a bathtub.
Alright, one final item. This one fits right in with the rest of these selections as it is – you guessed it – black and white striped. (Seriously, I have a problem). I think our pup Atlas would look very handsome in this collar.
Those are fun finds, yes?! Even if I walk out empty handed, I always enjoy browsing the latest Target goodies.
What have you found at Target lately that you’re crazy about?
