Fab Find: Felt Fortune Cookies

Yesterday at Target I found these adorable felt fortune cookies in the Dollar Bin for just $1! In various shades of pink and red, they include 3 reusable "cookies" with 6 different Valentine "fortunes" (like "Hug Me") you can stick inside. I'm sorry I didn't find these earlier (as V-Day is this weekend) but I suspect that they were all snapped up at my local stores as soon as they were put out.

Back at Target: the 'Meredith' Wedge by Merona

Thanks to The Budget Babe for the heads-up on this: Target has brought back the popular "Meredith" espadrille wedge sandal by Merona, just in time for Spring. This will be the third year in a row that Target has offered this style; they also brought it back last year, but they didn't offer it in denim blue (as shown here) like they did back in 2014. Now it's back in blue, as well as in tan and in black.

Not only is this sandal super lightweight and comfortable, it's also almost a carbon copy of a popular Michael Kors style, but at a fraction of the price.

Nate Berkus for Target Spring Collection

Did you happen to catch Nate Berkus on yesterday's Rachael Ray show? He shared his "5 crucial rules for decorating your space", and if you missed it, you can read the rundown here on Rachael's website. During the show Rachael went absolutely nuts for this cute woven jute figurine (shown at left on the mantle) which she thought was a donkey but actually is a horse. It's part of Nate's Spring Collection for Target, and at just $14.99, would look great as an accent piece or a bookend.

Coming Soon to Target: Pillowfort

Later this month, Target is launching Pillowfort: a new kids’ home collection that marries fun colors and patterns with style, quality and value. Pillowfort's more than 1,200 pieces of furniture, and bedding cater to any decor dream a kid might conjure up. Imaginations will run wild when they get a glimpse of the 12 whimsical themes, including "Ocean Oasis" (shown here). For more information & pics, check out this article on A Bullseye View. Pillowfort launches online and in stores on 2/21/16.

New at Target: Paperchase

The other day at Target I noticed a whole endcap devoted to the upscale stationery line Paperchase. This brand - which started in the UK, and expanded to the rest of Europe and the US in the 1990's - has their own stores, so I was surprised to see this collaboration with Tar-jay. The offerings include gift wrap, party supplies and stationery items in a pretty pastel marble print as well as white/gold chevron stripes and a cute arrow pattern - all well priced at $3-10.

Fab Find: Bunny Tote

Target's Dollar Aisle continues to bring out the bunny motif with this whimsical mini-tote bag (shown here). In addition to handles, this tote also has adorable "floppy ears" and a pink puff nose. At just $3 each, I'm sure these will sell out soon - in fact, this was the LAST one on the shelf - so nab this cutie soon if you want one.
