A Trip to Target

I don't know about you, but I have no trouble at all finding at least one cute home accessory whenever I stop in Target.  It can be quite a problem, and that is exactly why our trips to that tempting store are kept to a minimum.

Last Friday we had some time to kill, so Drew Babe suggested we go look around Target for a little while. Despite our good intentions of simply "looking," we found a few things we really needed wanted.

I'm not sure if you remember our white horse head we previously had in the shelf above our TV.  Well, we had to say goodbye to Mr. Horse (Drew was not quite as fond of him as I was) and begin our search for another item to fill that spot.

I knew I wanted something white to tie in our newly painted white tables and for added contrast against the dark shelf.  There were plenty white figurines to be found, but we weren't really going for the a buddha, bunny, or hippo.  While patiently searching around for a couple months, we found something we both liked on our trip to Target.

Here is our new ceramic white owl in his new little home :)

We ended up finding our owl in the garden section at Target.  
Btw: in this picture you can see we finally put some pictures in the frames around our TV....certainly took me long enough!  

Another great find from Target was a wall clock, and at just $6.99 we couldn't pass it up.  We both loved the clean lines and crisp white color of the clock.  Drew found a perfect spot for it above a door in the kitchen.

The faint tick-tock sound reminds me of my grandma's house, which has probably close to 15 ticking clocks of all kinds.  While I do love that sound, especially at my Grandma's, I think one ticking sound is plenty for our little, cozy home.

Maybe someday we will really follow our rule to just "look" around Target.
