On Target

I've recently made a few purchases at Target that are simply too excellent NOT to blog about.

1. The Bunny Dish

Behold the bunny dish, in all her splendor. I purchased this dish at a Target store in Long Island. It cost all of $3.99. It used to be full of delicious Cadbury Mini-Eggs (the superior Canadian variety, of course), but those don't last very long when there's a Langenberg around. [Aside: In an effort to spend my π Day winnings, I was recently perusing a Williams-Sonoma catalogue and found a similar one for over $20! Go Target!]

2. A Sewing Machine

My mom is hardcore with the sewing. A few years ago Dos and I bought her a sewing machine with so many bells and whistles that I think it walks the dogs and does the dishes. (At least it should, for how much it cost.) Me, not so much. I'm an amateur crocheter and knitter, but the last time I touched a sewing machine was to make an elephant pillow in Grade 8 Home Ec. A few weeks ago I was at the (admittedly sub-standard) Target in Brooklyn, looking for a sewing kit. Instead, I ended up buying a very cute Shark Mini Sewing Machine for the low low price of $19.99. Yes, really! A whole sewing machine for $19.99! That's crazy. I came home and whipped up curtains from table runners I'd bought on sale for $9.99 each at West Elm. (The café rod on which they're hanging is also from Target, and cost around $4.99.)

3. Delicious Orange Rainboots!, $19.99.

I'm praying for April showers.
