Target’s Threshold Clearance

Run!  While it lasts. Just got these 2 days ago.

Target Threshold Clearance napkins

One four-pack of clearance 20″ x 20″ napkins becomes two throw pillows.

4-pk napkins on clearance

Nice napkins, sturdy cotton, with a smooth finish, but bark-cloth-like quality + 2 standard pillow forms (purchased on clearance a few years back for $2.48 each = 2 pillows in a pattern I can live with for awhile for less than 5-dollars-per-pillow.  :)

d-i-y pillow covers from napkins

I needed something charcoal on my family room couches to sort of re-distribute some of my Urbane-Bronze wall color ’round about.  I like the fabrics in the Threshold line at Target, especially on clearance!  Ta-da!

That {New} Girl

WATCH THIS CUTENESS!!  Marlo Thomas was the original “That Girl” in the late 1960s and in to the early 70s.  LOVED HER!


Now Zoey D is The New Girl and her opening is very happy:  Who’s that girl?  Who’s that girl?  It’s Jess!

Meanwhile, I took years of French classes and seeing this {colorful} Target ad reminded me of singing this very song each year in school – even though it is quite decidedly a French Canadian song, rather than a song from France.  We also sang “Blue Bayou” in French at Hammond High Shool (Louisiana).  It was all part of the educational experience.


Alouette, gentille alouette!

Omygosh…I love Target ads. What kind of a sheep am I? Inspiration for grandbebe vids!!

Garden Markers

Elise-the-niece gave me a big bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day (for being her Colorado mom-ish-type-fill-in-person) and some flower seeds and these adorable little garden markers she found in the dollar section at Target.  They say you get 5 in the package, but mine had 6 – good times!  They come with the marker and everything.

These are highly superior to the plastic picnic knives Gavin and I had used!  Methinks we shall do some replacing…
