    My orchid has rebloomed, but I don't remember it being this color. That's how long I've had to keep this dang thing alive to see it pretty again. @thehouseoffigs asked me #widn  a week ago, that I somehow didn't see until today. I just came inside from watering my freshly planted flowers. A white butterfly bush, a few different coreopsis, ajuga, to name a few. I couldn't resist a good sale, and I'm still dying to cover the entire 'yard' with plants, but it my have been a bad idea to plant during this hot, dry week. ☀️🔥Fingers super crossed I can keep these alive. 😁🙏🏻🍀 Looking for a specific size picture frame? Don't worry about spending an arm and a leg on the perfect custom design, DIY with basic pine boards. Tutorial on the blog right now.

Those Little Red Stickers

I can.not.resist.  Target in general is a money and time suck, in the best way possible.  But those clearance stickers get me more often than not.  On my last visit I went in for extra long twin bedding (got it).  The sheets were full price (maybe I’ll get a second set in the fall-after college clearance), but I did get Threshold down alternative blankets for 50% off.  How awesome is everything Threshold?!  Lurve.

Target-Bedding-for-Boys-Room

Naturally, I couldn’t limit myself to the bedding.  I mean, I have to walk by the home decor.  Literally, have to go past to get to the bedding.  And I spotted more clearance signs there.  70% off calls my name every time.  Threshold’s metal cane-look table came home with me.  Originally $89.99, I snagged it for $26.98.  Now it happily lives in the family room, between the ReStore chairs.

Sit-and-Stay-Pillows-in-Family-Room

Like a racoon, I’m instantly attracted to shiny things, so it fits.  And that little red sticker made it all possible.  While I made the pillow cases for the boys, I also made a new set of pillows for the chairs.  The sit/stay commands gave me a little chuckle.

But here’s a little more Target goodness, on clearance.  Threshold Diamond Pillow, Nate Berkus Brass Rivet Table Lamp, Threshold Monogram Mug.

What’s your all-time favorite Target clearance score?

    When my hubs and I moved from rural Pennsylvania to Atlanta in the early 90’s, I discovered Target and their lovely clearance aisles! I bought tons of stuff super cheap! Just a couple of years ago, I scored two matching fabric ottomans for 70% off. Love your pillows!!
