Of course I hit up Target the day after Christmas! I also did go to exchange a couple of little things at the mall before they were out of everything. I stopped in the Dollar Tree while I was walking by too. I got some great deals, and some really cute stuff that my Christmas Décor will be sporting next year.
I looked at this wreath a million times over the Christmas season, but I held off, and ended up snatching it for $12.48 at Target! Hopefully by next year more of my house will have the walls painted and it will pop against a grey wall. I hung it on my dining room wall for this picture.
Check out all of my Target goodies in a glance. I am in love with them all! The big Red Snowflake-ish ornaments were .50 at The Dollar Tree. I have the perfect thing in mind for them next year.
These felt ornaments are so cute. I love the colors, they even math the glass ornaments I hung this year. I got these for $1.50 a piece at Target.
I love these felt snowflakes. Serious snowflake love going on here. They were .50 at Target.
These two things, are not necessarily for Christmas in my opinion. What do you think? I have a feeling this owl is going to stick around all year. I got him for $6 at Target, and the heart was $1.50. It might be staying out for Valentines Day!
Lots of cute ribbon at Target on the cheap. I can’t remember the price on this but it was half off.
.50 at The Dollar Tree. Cute tinsel tree. It needs a little glue at the top.
I usually do not like things that you stick to the window, but Gavin likes trains, and I could not resist this one for .50 at Target. It is down low on the french door in our kitchen.
I thought I would throw in a Pottery Barn bargain I came across online a couple of weeks ago that I could not pass up. I bought these cute metal numbers for $2 each. They are actually house numbers, and they come with a little ledge that screws onto a wall and the numbers sit on the ledge. I wanted them for my house. But of course, the ledges were sold out, only numbers left. I decided to order a 0 and a 6, for the year Jason and I were married. Here they are sitting on the window ledge in the kitchen. (Yes, there is a pond behind our house!) I think they are so cute! Not sure if they will stay here or be moved.
Today is a very special day! It is my youngest son, Gavin’s birthday! He is 5 today! The first words out of his mouth when he woke up were “I’m five!” I always tell him I want him to stay little, and a little while ago, as I am working on this blog he asked me, “Are you mad at me?” I said “no, why would I be?” He said “because I grew.” So sweet! Of course I am not mad at him! He has to grow. I am just sad to see my baby growing up. I tried to explain this to him. He swears he will always snuggle me, even when he is a grown up man! We’ll see if that holds up.
Happy 5th birthday today, Gavin Dean! You bring sunshine to even the darkest of days, and I will never stop loving you. You are such a little gift from God. Enjoy being 5!
