Target hits the spot

Metallic vases from $29.95. Starlight european pillowcases, $34.99 each.

Sorry I've been AWOL - life is busy busy at the moment! At work the other day I actually received mail (sadly, this is news because I don't receive anything in this new role - as deputy ed I had too much, now not enough!) Anyway, it was Target's new Winter line - Berry Fresh and Metallic Sheen - and I thought I'd share a few of their newest products with you... Apparently, plums and purples are big this year, so my slightly accidental purple feature room is spot on!

How cute are these cannisters? I've been looking for something like this for ages for all my baking essentials... Love the little spoons. I might have to break my self-imposed shopping ban for these! Canisters from $8.99 each, cake stand $29.99.

The dinnerware is pretty, but as usual I'm coveting the thing that's not for sale: the dining chairs! Orchid servingware from $6.99, faux leather placemats $10.99 (set of 2), Haven glasses in green and purple $4.99 each.

The range should be in stores soon if it's not already.

Some good news (well, for me, anyway!). Ohdeedoh saw Pud's nursery and want to feature it in a nursery tour. Very exciting! Now I just have to get the other side of the room looking relatively decent. I still need new carpet, to paint one and a half walls, new wardrobes... As well as a really good clean up - you can barely see the floor with all the clothes, bags, books, shoes dumped there! So look out for that in a few weeks!
PS: Pud is our nickname for the baby. Like pudding. It'd all because when we first fell pregnant with Zak, he was the size of a piece of rice. This led to rice paddy, so Zak was Paddy. Now this baby copped rice pudding and so is Pud. Just in case you're wondering where the heck that came from!

Yay to mail... I just get bills. I love those dining chairs too! Congrats on another feature on ohdeedoh! Such a stylin mumma.

Something to giggle at: Steve's baby name was "pud" and almost 30 years later he's still being called it! I'm the only one in his ENTIRE family that calls him Steve. Even his niece and nephews call him "Uncle Pud". So as you can imagine... we're not calling the eventual baby "pud" :P
