Spring is in the air and I have been busy sorting through all of my craft supplies and beginning to get my craft room organized! Yup! Spring cleaning is underway and it feels really good to get cupboards cleaned out and to make space for new things (ha ha) and to get rid of the dust and cobwebs of winter. I must say, getting my craft room into shape is a great motivator!
I decided that a trip to Target was in order to see if they had anything that would help give me an extra Spring pick-me-up. So, I gathered up my granddaughter and we went on a shopping trip to see what we could find. So, for Friday Faves today I am going to show you the favorite things that we discovered! And, best of all was that no single item was over $5.00! If you want to find the same deals, you are going to have to click or go quickly because many of these things are seasonal or on sale this week!
The first place I always stop is The Spot, that used to be called the 1 Spot because everything was $1.00. Now it is called the Spot because some of the things are $3.00 and $5.00. I tend to try to stick with the $1.00 items. There were so many cute things this time!
Look at these cute Easter themed bubble wands! The tube of bubbles is nice and long for a lot of bubble enjoyment. These would be great in an Easter Basket! They are only $1.00 in The Spot. I wish that I could mail them to all of my grandchildren, but since they are liquid, I am not going to risk it. I am going to take some with me next week when Emily and I go and eat lunch with her cousins Spencer and Amelia. I know that Spencer loves bubbles and the weather is great now for bubble blowing. I can't find the Easter themed ones online, but here are similar ones without the Easter motif.
Can you believe that these adorable cupcake pedestals are only a dollar in The Spot? I think that for $1.00 I can afford buy one for every place setting at a party table, (or the Easter table) to set everyone's cupcake on! So cute! I can't find these online, so you will have to find these in the store. After this purchase, I had to run home and bake cupcakes to try them out!
Whenever we have an extended family dinner, my sister-in-law Karen is "expected" to bring deviled eggs. She is the best at making them and they disappear in no time. When we have dinners with just our kids and Karen won't be there, it falls to one of us to make the eggs. Lindsey shared a recipe with you on this post. To store and serve these delicious deviled beauties, I found this awesome tray for just $5.00 in the special Easter section of the store. It is the Spritz brand that Target uses for their party supplies. This tray isn't on the website, so you'll have to run in to get it. It comes in pretty pastel colors and I think with its snap on cover it will be perfect to store the eggs in the fridge in until serving time.
One thing that I have been realizing for awhile now is that I need is some new potholders!
I've had to throw some away because they were getting so raggedy that sometimes there would be a weak spot and I would burn myself when using them! I know that I should just make myself some, and I will get around to that. But, while I was walking through Target, in the Hearth and Hand with Magnolia section, I happened to walk past these!
Look how fluffy and thick these Heart and Hand potholders are! One of them has a pocket to slip your hand in. They are marked at $8.99 for the 2 of them, so that is actually only $4.50 per potholder. They have a nice leather hanging loop on them and they look stylish as well as work wonderfully protecting your fingers. (I know this because I used them to pull the aforementioned cupcakes out of the oven.) These would be a great bridal shower gift, or like I did, a gift to yourself! I know that they are going to make me happy every time I use them!
Finally, I picked myself up an Ava & Viv brand Tee for only $5.00! How could I pass that up? I love the spring flower print! I bought it in the Women's section, but the tees are on sale in many sizes. I purchased 1 size bigger if you are wondering why it looks big around the hips. I did this for length on my long torso and also to allow for shrinkage. Hurry and click to order because the sale is only for this week!
I was able to get out of Target spending under $30.00 and I feel so happy with what I purchased! I was going to look at a couple of other things, but Emily started to fall asleep in the shopping cart, so we had to head home for her nap time. But, below are a couple of picture links to some of the other Spring time specials they have going on! Let me know what you find!
