Yay Sunday! That means it’s time to share fun things like New Target Faves, what to watch on television, and healthy snacks. Be sure to check out what Annie and Cindy are loving, too!
1. New Target Faves
So I don’t get out much with our lockdown situation. That’s why my recent trip to Target was exhilarating! The new Studio McGee line is out today but my local Target already had some things that I want to show you.
The faux plants are fairly real looking…and are great for hard to water places (or second homes). I’m thinking I should buy the maidenhair fern (top right) since they are impossible to keep alive. And aren’t the baskets cute? Head over to Target’s new Studio McGee line today. Things will sell out.
New From Studio McGee For Target
Here are some of my favorites…
I picked up this cute little ceramic vase for $15. It’s a good size for one bunch of flowers.
2. What to Watch On TV
Speaking of Studio Mcgee, the second season is out. It’s so fun to see the personal side of their family and Shea’s thought process.
I like spotting some of their items for Target in the show like the striped square ottoman that I have (bottom left). It’s sold out online but it’s in a check, too. Or you can get it in the double version. Very cute.
“The story of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, a Castilian nobleman and war hero in medieval Spain.” It’s on Amazon Prime with dubbed voices. It seems we are getting a lot of foreign shows now…probably due to U.S. production restraints with Covid. We are still hoping to go to Spain in June and thought this would be fun to watch. Some of the battle scenes are gruesome–that’s when I left to go wash the dinner dishes. Overall, we liked it.
This is in Italian with subtitles. Sophia Loren is great in it. “A Holocaust survivor running a daycare business forms an unlikely friendship with a bitter street kid when she takes him in after he robs her.” It’s a sweet emotional film.
3. Healthy Eating
Howard has lost more than twice as much weight as I have in two weeks. I’m trying not to get hung up on numbers. (But yes, I am annoyed). The main thing is keeping it off…and I still have a long ways to go. How are you doing if you are doing Weight Watchers with us?
These Cara Cara Navel Oranges are delicious for a zero point snack. Really sweet…see the pinkish-orange interior? I put slices in my water, too.
I also really like the Light String Cheese Sticks from Trader Joe’s (two points). And I just made this Spicy Gazpacho Soup again…works nicely when you want something in the afternoon before dinner.
4. Survey Results And A Winner!
Thanks so much to everyone who filled out the questionnaire! Mostly, everyone wants
- Decor Tips and Before and After’s (tied)
- My Home Decor
- Fashion Over 50 and Target Finds (tied)
But mainly I got some GREAT ideas from your comments which I will be sure to implement. I’m going to read through them again and take notes. Thank you again!
I used a random number generator and #252 out of the 344 who responded won. I’ve already contacted her via email. It will be fun to show a before and after of what one hour can accomplish with her (if she lets me).
5. Ambient Candlelight For You Or As A Gift For A Friend
Do you know how much I love these easy unscented votive candles from Pottery Barn? Probably, since I use them all the time! They come in a large pack and last a long time. When the candle is burned down, I put the glass in the freezer to remove any remaining wax by chipping it out. Then I can use them again with inexpensive tea light candles.
I brought some to our son, Tommy’s house when we were there.
That antique lithograph of French and English ships battling is real. Twenty years ago, when I was shopping for art with Tommy in Paris (he was 8 years old), I told him he could pick out a picture if he was good. I said I would give it to him when he was 25 years old. He never forgot that. So, now he has it in his dining room 🙂
Those are my New Target Faves, what to watch on television, healthy snacks, and more!
Now let’s go see what my buddies are loving! Incidentally, several of you said you like our Sunday Faves!
