Needlepoint at Jonathan Adler

February 3, 2009

I’m really liking the new collection of needlepoint pillows over at Jonathan Adler today… Very perky and happy just like the man himself.

I vote for the belt pillow as my fave but at $165 a pop I may need a few coupons or a sale to motivate me on this one. Perhaps I’m just being cheap.

What do you think about spending $165 on a pillow anyway?

Sweet Finds At Target

February 2, 2009

I wrote about some really cute finds at Target over here today… including heart shaped mixing bowls. Has anyone noticed their bird motif popping up all over the store from post-it notes to candles? Very kawaii I think. Not typical for Target, it’s something I’d expect from HEMA but not so much Target. Regardless, I’m liking it!

I love these post-its… They are a bit grade school I know, but whatever. Being an adult means accepting the inner 8-year-old and shopping for her sometimes, too. :)

Orla Kiely For Target

February 1, 2009

Some Target’s have a few Orla pieces out, others do not. Thank goodness they JUST POSTED word on their website that Orla’s collection is confirmed to be in stores not today (as I was informed by their ‘people’) but on the 15th. I wanted to let everyone know ASAP since so many of you are excited to get your hands on this collection.

Don’t miss Orla herself here on this video at Target.com. See you in the morning, all!

Horne {Yummy Home Stuff}

January 14, 2009

Have you heard of Horne? What a unique boutique. I found it sort of randomly today when I clicked on an ad over at Oh Joy! and instantly felt like it was going to be a nice site to peruse. I think that you’ll soon agree…

A few personal faves – top: {1} alada gold winged teacup and saucer, {2} cornet clip glazed lamp bottom: {3} acquatinta suspension lamp, {4} alada s+p set.

Serene, pure, simple, exceptional quality, organic — are all words that came to mind as I enjoyed Horne this morning. I noticed lots of tea towels from Third Drawer Down along with items from in Simplemente Blanco, Coe & Waito, MUD Australia, Rob Brandt, Ornamented Life, Tsé & Tsé and more. Beautiful!

Psst: They have a blog too!

Orla Kiely Home Collection for Target

January 13, 2009

Hot off the press! Yes, you read that title correctly. Orla designs for Targey! As you know, Target enlists designers to create special collections for their store and starting on February 1st you will find Orla Kiely at your local Target with select items available on Target.com. Would you like a sneak peek?

The collection is quite extensive, I’ve been looking at the product shots for a few days and can’t believe the selection. There’s a printed laundry bag, hanging shoe organizer, totes, tablecloths, cork placemats, aprons, bowls, plates, canisters, and more all priced between $2.49 and $21.99. I really like the canisters, mustard yellow ceramic pitcher, mugs, glasses, cork placemats (so English!), shoe organizer, and the serving trays and bowls.

So what do you think? Are you surprised to see Orla at Target? Do you like what you see? Are you going to run to your nearest store on February 1st 15th? I highly suggest it because with all of these designer collections the good stuff goes very quickly!
