Shopping Hiatus {2}

What shopping hiatus? Oh yes the one I am suppose to be on till the end of the year, well, I must have forgotten. As the story goes...


I went to Target to just see if they had pillows for a friends home I am redoing, they did, and they also had some for me. They were on sale if that makes a difference. I really wanted a pillow for this little rocker. It is the chair that my grandfather was rocked in when he was a just a baby. It was in my son's room and now that he is getting older I moved it out. I wanted a more modern pillow for such a classic chair and this one was perfect. Was I really suppose to wait till next year?


Then as I was leaving I saw these lovely little glasses. They are that hard plastic. I am sure there is a better name for them, but right now that word escapes me. I thought they would be perfect for all the dining we do outdoors. I do not like using my glass one's outdoors with kiddos and plastic disposable one's are no good for the environment. I thought these were a happy and pretty medium.


No, I did not buy this swimsuit, but I wish I would. Isn't it lovely.

Oh, and I also bought two lanterns for by my front door. These, however, I did buy within my own parameters. I will share them as soon as the new door knocker goes up. I am quite excited about it. Then my hubby saw me admiring this lovely chair for the bedroom and the next thing I know he told me to buy it. I can't wait till it comes in. So as you can see the hiatus is not going so well, but this does start a new week for new beginnings, right?

LOL that is why I try to avoid Target unless absolutely needed...last time I went I think I spent over $100...in my defense not all stuff for me though!

Blueprint Bliss said...

Fun finds. Can't wait to see your lantern.

And I have a swimsuit very similar to that bookmarked on my desk right now in the new J.Crew catalog... it's calling my name!

I'm such a sucker for Target. I need to avoid that place or I end up spending forever in there and spending too much $!

Jennie Bee said...

aw its ok, just gotta be careful not to go wild. I love the pillow though it looks good classic with the modern. Yeah I agree plastic cups are much better especially with kids.

Federica said...

Why you did not buy that swinsuit? It's lovely! I would buy it if I can..unfortunately they don't ship to Italy and J.Crew store is a little bit far from here... :(

Oh that pillow is too cute. I've been eyeing it for awhile now and it's nice to see that it's on sale now!

So happy that hubby said yes to that chair. I was contemplating getting the red version off of craigslist, but in the end decided to sit to a chair I already have.

Julia said...

Way to go! I think these are wonderful, wise, and fabulous purchases!

Mrs. Filly said...

I need new pillows and I would like them to be onsale! I can't believe that I didn't think to look there last week when I was out near it! I've looked everywhere near me! :( oh well. Beach this weekend so :) no pillow shopping but at least I'll get to see the sunshine and waves :)

Jackie said...

Great, now I want that chair from CB2. I've been looking for a chair for the built-in desk in our kitchen for ages and think this one would be perfect! So tempting since it is on sale...

Blair said...

Oh, wow! That pillow is adorable! Good work resisting the swimsuit:)

megan said...

I love your little rocking nook. The yellow table is great! Can't wait to see all your new purchases in place.

Kotori said...

That yellow chair is fabulous - how fun that hubby said to just get it for no reason at all (I love it when they do that!). I think I'd have a hard time passing up all these finds, myself.

And, how great to have that rocker? What an heirloom.

Great job with the hiatus...if you ever pass through Tallahassee there is a JCrew returns store that just opened {Urban Threads} It's cheaper than the outlets and they carry items still in the catalog. It's a dangerous stop.

Kasey said...

i found the most beautiful lamp shades a few months ago...they looked like they belonged at anthro.
