We get asked pretty frequently about where we find inspiration. The short answer: everywhere. Other blogs, design mags, real life, family and friends, clothing, nature, even reality TV. Yup, I’ll admit it. Who takes pictures of the TV for inspiration slash fun? This girl (points to self with thumbs). And then they get uploaded with all of our other photos and John dumps them into an iPhoto folder that’s aptly named “TV pics.” And every once in a while I come across them and click through and say “oh yeah that was Law & Order, I loved that ceiling” or “that headboard makes me all clammy, in a good way” or “poor actors slash reality stars – I wonder if they hate the fact that they can be paused in such unfortunate and unflattering ways?” (Oprah used to give me the most hilarious faces when I paused her – miss you O!). So here are a few photos of the tube that were sitting in my folder (you know I’m an over-sharer).
The Modern Family house (someday we’d love to use their landscaping as inspiration for our own home):
Here’s another Modern Family shot from the Clive Bixby episode (where they meet at a hotel lobby – best ever). I snapped a photo because I thought the shape of the headboard could be fun for one of those DIYed from plywood and foam ones. Maybe for a kids room someday (in brighter colors/fabric).
This shot from Law & Order LA was taken back when we were still house hunting. And I snapped it (get ready to snort-laugh) because I was hoping to find a house with arches and tall ceilings like this. Yeah, that didn’t happen, but I still love our house (and this photo too, just for the how-deluded-was-I memories). And heck, we did end up with exposed beams (white in the kitchen, and darker in the living room). They even run in the same directions as this photo. So maybe we did buy this house… kind of.
Here we have a shot from America’s Next Top Model (and an example of unfortunate pause-faces). Guess what I was enamored with… yup it’s another headboard lust moment. Isn’t that brown and white fabric awesome?
Here’s a shot from a movie we Netflixed (The Kids Are All Right), which we watched right after moving. We loved the deep-ish blue on the walls and wondered if that was a good color for the guest room (and actually ended up going even deeper).
Here’s another shot from The Kids Are All Right. John and I both fell in love with the large stone paver walkway that sort of curved out from the house in a triangle-ish shape. Maybe someday when we transplant about five hundred bushes we can attempt this clean and open look…
Ah, here we have one of my favorite shows: Flipping Out. I really liked the dark wood doors with the giant pane of frosted glass. So many homes have those ornate oval-glassed double doors, and I loved the clean-lines and chunky frame of these – they just felt so different.
Here’s another Flipping Out picture, and I can’t remember if I loved the tangerine gourd lamps (which could be accomplished with a can o’ spray paint and a Goodwill score) or the cool wavy mirror in the back that looks kind of like faux oyster shells. Probably both.
Last Flipping Out shot. This time I loved the glass pendants and the dark cabinets with the white counters. Of course we don’t have white granite/marble/silestone in our kitchen so it’s nothing we’ll do (we want to work with the mid-toned granite that we have, and don’t want to create a sea of brown) but it was a nice look, so I worked my picture-taking finger to capture Jeff’s design. Who knows, maybe someday we’ll get to stain someone else’s cabinets to mimic the look.
Here we have a shot from The Celebrity Apprentice (did anyone else think that show got boring after crazy Nene left?). Can you tell what I was obsessed with? Yup, the floors. They actually inspired us when it came to building the console table. So yeah, we owe it all to the Celebrity Apprentice.
Here’s a shot from The Big C (does anyone else watch it- it’s so good, we got a free trial of Showtime and got hooked and watched the whole thing in record time). I really liked the board and batten on the wall behind her and still dream of DIYing something similar in our hallway (as recently mentioned here). So I thought you’d like a visual. Preferably with Laura Linney in it.
This shot is from Secrets From A Stylist, snapped because we still have plans to thrift or build a larger, chunkier media cabinet to balance out the giant wood console table that we built on the other side of the room. And we really liked the white frame with the wood fronted doors of this thing:
Oh and occasionally we just see something we don’t think we’re supposed to and it blows our mind. Like this rare angle that John noticed (he’s such a notice-er) on Bachelor Pad a few weeks back. Look how many lights are on the ceiling in that room behind Jake. Isn’t that crazy? The place looks so homey on TV but it must feel like such a set in real life (and probably gets pretty hot).
Who else takes TV pics? I can’t be the only person who does this, right? Or do you try to find screen grabs on the computer instead? Some of my shots are admittedly quite wonky due to TV glare. I know I could mess around with the camera a bit to cut down on that stuff, but I mainly just use them as memory joggers, so it’s ok if they have a weird blue tint or there’s a person or two oddly frozen in the room. Maybe you guys all just watch TV and relax like a normal person? Probably that, huh?
Oh and did anyone else go Missoni crazy at Target? Sorry we’re late to that bandwagon/update. We actually didn’t make it there until Wednesday evening (the collection dropped on Tuesday morning) and of course it was hugely picked over/sold out by then, but I did spot these sweet rain boots (in an extra small) for Clara and couldn’t resist. She already tries to wear them (they’re a bit too big). Very cute.
I also grabbed this pretty geometric vase for the back of the living room console:
It’ll probably migrate around the house over time, but for now I’m loving the bold pattern and the metallic finish that references the chunky silver lamps nearby. Bah-dah-bling.
I also made off with these headbands for myself. They seem like a nice compromise for a ponytail obsessed gal like me. Now I can wear my hair down but still keep it out of my face. Oh who am I kidding, I’ll probably wear them with a ponytail. Update: already did here.
What did you guys buy? Was everything already gone? Was there someone in line buying 2K worth of Missoni stuff in front of you? Word on the street is that happened like crazy on Tuesday and Target’s website even crashed and folks are selling everything for $200 on ebay. Peeps be crazy for Missoni.
The Missoni craze is out of control! My sister lives in the DC area, and some of their stores were sold out within 2 hours. Here in Virginia Beach, the stores still had product as of Wednesday, but the glass items (votive holders, vases, etc.) were pretty much gone. I picked up 2 votives (a bargain at $5.99 each) and a couple of the glass photo frames. I also got a set of the little journals for $7.99, so nothing too wild here. But what a marketing coup for Target!
Andrea C says
… oh my …. I n e e d some of those rain boots – or gum boots as we call them here – in my size! Modern Family – impressed that you can decor-spot in between laughing at Gloria!
Call me weird, but I don’t get the Missoni craze :o) For the most part the patterns remind me of the worst of the 70s. Except, … those rainboots. Those are very cute and I can’t wait to see Clara wearing them!
Me either! It’s all the same pattern with slight variation. I think the the homegoods stuff is a little more tolerable, but not really digging all the chevron patterned clothing!
I don’t understand it either. I remember a few years ago when paisley and flower prints were really big, and now you don’t see them anywhere. I think chevron is a fad, too, and a couple of years from now, people will be saying “that’s so 2011” or whatever. lol
I felt that way too.. what’s the big deal buying something from Target with some Italian’s name on the label? Mehhh. But some of the stuff is super cute!! Not the clothes. I don’t think that zig zag stripe would look good on anyone… maybe a stick figure?
Ditto…never have been a fan of Missoni! When I see it in Harper’s Bazaar or Lucky, I’ve always thought it was so busy and clashy. Not my favorite look. The rain boots, though, are the cutest thing of the whole Target collection!
well I am a weirdo too… i think that it is all ugly. it is way to 70s-ish. the boots are cute, but only because your princess will be wearing them and she is fabulous! :)
Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove says
I haven’t gotten to Target yet but I have been browsing the Missoni collection online!
Anyway, I love all those snip-its of inspiration. I loved the wall color in Katherine Heigl’s apt. in 27 dresses. I also love the porch from The Notebook. I guess I steal inspiration from the tv too!
Meg A. says
I didn’t even know that people were going to FREAK over the Missoni collection. I’ve been looking for a “diaper bag” (that’s not actually a marketed/over-priced diaper bag) and I happened to spot the bright zig-zag bag in a commercial on Mon. night. Wandered onto the website Tuesday morning… it had crashed but I persisted and finally got on and ordered the bag. And then I find out later the same $35 bag is reselling for $200! Crazy! I was a little tempted to sell it, buttt the bag is just so darn cute. My baby wants me to have it.
So this might be offensive depending on how much you invest yourself in reality tv, but am I the only one who sees a resemblance between Jake and a certain Petersik?
I totally saw it the second he was on The Bachelor last year! A nurse at the hospital once said it too. Of course John doesn’t see it, but he never sees any of those things. Haha.
Me too! Me too! It’s not crazy-close, but the similarity is definitely there.
Jenny @ DIYNewlyweds says
I thought the same thing when I saw that Bachelor photo!
Kristin H. says
YES!!! That is what I came to the comments to say!! But also didn’t want to offend John since I’m not so much a Jake fan.. But I do think it is cray cray close!!!!!! bee tee dubs.. SO thrilled you guys watch the bachelor too…
I totally see it too and was going to post that as well! They could be brothers!
ditto, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw that screen shot and was surprised Sherry didn’t mention it!
Robin @ Our Semi Organic Life says
Yep I’ve checked ebay to see how much the mark ups are and it’s insane! I could die for those curtains though. Yes I do that with photos. I have a huge set of ones I need to upload from my iphone to my online album for inspiration/photo albums/laugh and delete.
Can I just say I’m HUGELY dissappointed by the whole thing?? I saved for 2 months for the bike.. The bike was amazing true Shimano adjusters and everything.. AND SOMEONE BOUGHT BOTH OF THEM. Oh he offered to sell me one right there while I was waiting in line with him in front of me (no, he hadn’t purchased them yet.) Yeah he said he’d let me take one for $899. $899!!! FOR A BIKE THAT WAS $399!!!! I was sooooo upset… That was the ONLY thing I had wanted from the line, because for the things on that bike, it was a truly good deal. (Instead I shoved the $350 back into my savings.. My husband used $50 to purchase a sweater for himself from the line.) I guess I’ll continue saving for another bike that tickles my fancy… Hate eBay sometimes… (Yes, I checked. He said he was just going to resell them both, cashier smirked and said nothing more.) Again. HUGELY DISAPPOINTED.
Wow that stinks!!!! So sorry you didn’t get your bike.
Such a bummer :( I am so sad that the ebayers were out full-swing. It takes the FUN out of it for the rest of us…
At the prices things are listed on ebay, you might as well order some REAL Missoni!
I was there early Tuesday and snagged 2 scarves, a clutch (that I am still on the fence about keeping) and a tray–just what I went in for :)
crraaaazy!! Sorry for you Jessica! I just checked ebay and one of those Missoni for Target bikes sold for $3550!!! The other ones are selling for upwards of $1500. That is totally insane. People are crazy. nuff said.
Wow. that is horrible. BUT I did read online that they may still get some more inventory in through Oct 22 so it is worth going back to take a look!
The bike was also my favorite thing. I even talked to my mom about how everything I was interested in was gone, gone, gone – she said that is why ebay sucks sometimes. If it helps you can find some great cute bikes from Schwinn: http://www.schwinnbikes.com/bikes/cruisers
That kind of makes me hope the e-bayers get stuck with all the stuff. Seriously, just crazy.
I just checked the completed listings on ebay and also saw the bike sold for $3550. However the buyer only had 2 feedback, so I wouldn’t be convinced this is sale is going to be completed. Sometimes people just bid on things to raise the price, with no intention of buying them, for a variety of reasons. The only way to know is to watch the sellers feedback and see if she gives any to this buyer once the bike is paid for. I understand that this doesn’t help you, but people should take it with a grain of salt that something being sold at an outrageous price actually ends up at that price. The sale isn’t completed until the buyer gets the money!
WOW. I didn’t check eBay just because of the prices I imagined… For that price, I would be getting an actual Dutch commuter/cargo bike. Seriously. I only wanted it because of the hydrolic Shimano gear shifts (a 3 speed cruiser is not found easily here in KY), basket and mudguards (a must for those towing kiddos!)… That and yes, it was super cute and totally my style. (The black and white that is, not the crazy weird brown grossness.) But thanks for the link Elizabeth!!! I may end up getting one of those after I’m over my heartbreak… lol
Checking eBay now, it looks like the resellers might be getting the shaft. Most of them aren’t selling, and the ones that are, they’re going for less than purchase price. Oopsie!
Almost all the Missoni stuff is gone in our area! (DC/MD)
I tried most of Tuesday to get on the Target website…uh from work…shhhh :) but it was crashed most of the time or I could only make it as far as the home page. I was hoping to score the purple and charcoal chevron dress socks for my husband’s Christmas stocking. Sold out in all the stores in our area and online! I checked ebay and bid on a pair the same day but they quickly climbed out of my price range and sold for about $25 (in a weird auction that only lasted a few hours…didn’t know they had those…)
LOVE the rain boots you got for Clara!
I’ve taken TV pictures of haircuts I want. My hairdresser just LOVES me for challenging her with the lack of multiple angles and tininess of the picture on my phone.
Do also take pictures of hair cuts I like.
[email protected] up with the Jenks says
I love it that you find inspiration everywhere! Ya’ll are definitely passionate about your craft. I guess I never pay that much attention, and if I notice something, I think “yeah, I’ll remember that” and I never do.
One thing that I am so good at spotting, when they mess up the details of the shot frames…like when someone’s glass is full in one frame and empty in the next. Or hair is behind the shoulder and then over the shoulder. My husband thinks it’s crazy, but I think I have a secret career as a film editor (if that’s even the job title).
P.S. going to Target today- I only want one thing…holding my breath it’s still there…
It cracks me up how people went cookoo for cocoa puffs over all the Missoni. If I wouldn’t spend $100 on it, trust me I will not go on ebay to buy it for $200. Plus, it is Target Missoni. It is not like you are getting their real product at a lower price. You are getting a Target product with the signature Missoni pattern. Ok my rant is done.
I love those wood floors.
Rachel Tatem says
I love the Missoni at Target too!
I jumped on the Missoni blogging wagon…but haven’t bought anything yet. Target is on list for this weekend.
I saw another blogger left Target with those same boots for her darling girl too! Very cute!
What do you think of ANTM Allstars? Am I the only one who had no idea this was going to happen? Do you hate Alexandria as much as I do??
So excited about that show!!! Yeah Alexandria is my least face but we love Laura and Lisa is hilarious/crazy/entertaining.
I missed it this week..I think I recorded the last 20 minutes or so but haven’t watched it yet. I am 42 years old and I love ANTM..how sad is that!
Amy Berra says
I constantly take pictures of tv, especially when we were gutting our kitchen. Sarah Richardson’s farmhouse kitchen will live forever on my iPhone photo roll.
I managed to snag some Missoni socks and a pair of tights. No tote. Le sob.
Sarah Richardson is amazeballs! She makes it look so effortless!
I have pictures of Sarah Richardson’s rooms from the show on my phone, too! I was just looking at them yesterday. My husband thinks I’m nuts. Thanks you guys, feels great that it’s not just me!
Angie K says
I thought I was the only one who paused my tv and took pictures! My son thinks I’m crazy. I usually snap pics of artwork I could diy with my phone. You are right about the crazy pause faces! Sometimes I’m going through my pictures and forget I was taking a pic of the art and think I’m a little crazy myself!
I missed the line at Target. There was a blanket I really wanted, but didn’t see it (on pinterest) until after they were all gone. I’m living in a cave with the new baby :)
I admit… I bought loads of Missoni stuff! I didn’t get there until Wed. morning – so almost all of the women’s wear was gone. My daughter now has lots of clothing, a pair of flats, and a pair of rain boots. I found a shirt, dress, rain boots and pjs for myself…. 2 picture frames, a pillow, a purse, hairbands, and a blanket….
not sure if I will keep all of it (the pillow doesn’t match our decor colors once I got it home, boo hoo)… but I made the decision to just get it and figure it out knowing that it wouldn’t be there if I decided later that I wanted it.
Hey! I have (less snazzy) arches like that with NO idea what to do with the rooms they’re in! Maybe I should be thinking of them as an asset rather than a pain in the… asset.
See? Our kitchen is now painted Martha Stewart’s Rainwater, but you get the idea.
I love The Big C! The whole cast is great and the last episode was really funny. BTW I’m starting to get an itch for board & batten in my living room…yikes!
Inspiration every where…love it. I will snatch up the Missoni next year at the thrift/consignment shops:) susan
Janet C says
I wanted to pick up something Missoni too, but my Target was picked over too. I’m kinda irritated that greedy hoarders came in and snatched everything up to resell on EBAY. From what I’ve heard, that’s what happened to most of the items on Tuesday.
Devon @ Green House, Good Life says
How much did the vase cost? It’s so pretty!
I think it was around $15? Hope it helps!
According to the website $19.99
I think it’s a regional thing. Maybe? Maybe not. It totally could be $19.99! I Remember the 99, so it could have been $15.99 or $17.99 or $19.99. Haha.
I never caught that shot of the Bachelor/Bachelorette living room. How interesting! It totally looks like a set.
I LOVE any inspiration from Flipping Out. This most recent season’s rental house… lordy… I love their dining table and the circular candle sconces flanking the fireplace- I’ve been looking everywhere for something similar (any ideas?!). I’m a sucker for anything chrome/white, really anything on Flipping Out to be honest!
Oh yeah it’s so gorgeous! Sadly, no leads for you though. Anyone know?
So speaking of inspiration, I’d love some tips on how you go about finding something that you’re looking for.
I need to find a nightstand to ‘go with’ a side table that we’ve re-purposed as a nightstand. I’m looking for something with certain dimensions that are not the standard for a nightstand. I’d love any suggestions on how to go about doing an Internet search for this type of thing or is that just fruitless? I don’t need it to be a particular finish as much as I need the dimensions.
Thanks in advance!
Sometimes sites like nextag.com can be helpful in comparisons (ex: search “wood side table” and see what comes up). In general we just jeep an eye out and try to stay flexible!
Boyfriend and I just recently discovered The Big C, and watched all the episodes On Demand! If you ask me, their whole house is a DIY inspiration. We especially love the kitchen, and the living room.
Awesome show! So glad you guys watch it, too.
I have yet to check out the Missoni stuff, I think because in my heart I know I’m going to be sad at how little (if any) is left.
Plus, I spent an obscene amount of money there last weekend anyway.
My name is Allyn, and I’m a Target whore.
I have never thought about taking pictures of the TV – great idea! I think I will have to partake in this activity! I do take pictures while I shop so I can remember things that I want to buy!
I love Flipping Out! Zoila is my fav! Love her! I actually named my cat Monkey…. Did you see the episode where Monkey accidentally got trapped in the kitchen cabinet and Zoila walked around the house yelling “Monkey!” “Monkey!” “Monkey!” It cracked me up and I just had to use the name!
Hahaha. Yes. Nothing is funnier than Zoyla saying monkey. She also says Jeffrey pretty cutely.
Monkey himself/herself is a pretty awesome ball of fuzz too. I liked when Zoila had to wait for Monkey to use the bathroom. Definitely happy to hear that Jeff, Jenny, and Zoila are going to do another show called Interior Therapy. It’s house crashing but with reno work a la Jeff Lewis. Win, win.
I’m so excited about it!!
Love this post, it’s fun to see inspiration in so many different places. Just curious – is there a list of other blogs that you read? I’d love to check them out.
Yup, it’s on the sidebar (a tab that says “blogs we love” on the square with our cheesy faces on it). Hope it helps!
Julia @ Chris loves Julia says
I have never take actual photos of the television. More of mental photos *click* (Friends, anyone?) I am CONSTANTLY enamored and inspired with the homes on Modern Family. In fact, we painted an accent wall in our family room what we call “Modern Family Blue.” It makes me happy.
Haha love the “click” Friends reference!
Jennifer K says
I lucked out (the Missoni line was still a huge hit in New Hampshire, but probably not as huge as in other locations):
– Missoni colors travel tote
– Missoni colors suitcase
– Missoni blue chevron long open cardigan
– Missoni girls’ boots for my daughter like the ones you got for Clara
– Missoni girls’ poncho (which is probably going back because my 3-year-old can’t stand not being able to find the sleeves)
– Missoni media boxes in the colors and blue/green patterns
– Missoni note cube in the blue/green chevron pattern
… and, being the huge sucker I am, I broke down and bought the “colore” throw blanket on eBay. I hope I don’t regret it, but I was tired of driving to my local Target every morning at 8 AM hoping the Missoni Fairy had arrived overnight and left one of theose throws just for me.
How am I so out of the loop? I am an internet junkie and I can never figure out when these collections are coming to Target. I always miss them. Sigh. HOW DO YOU KNOW???
Target had lots of commercials running. I also gave a text happy BFF who reminded me. Haha.
Nice BFF! I guess I need to watch some live t.v. and stop fast-forwarding all the commercials. Ha!
I don’t really get the Missoni craze…Clara’s boots are adorable (headbands and vase are too) but over all it just looks out dated to me. I guess I much prefer solid colors.
I wonder if technology will ever get crazy enough to have a Pinterest type program for tv?
Years ago, I was obsessed with the Father of the Bride house…inside and outside. I took pics of it with my 35 mm camera. I’m sure the folks at the photo place thought I was insane. I watched the movie recently and a lot of it still holds up. Not bad for 15+ years later.
BTW–love Clara’s 16 month picture! She’s looking less baby and more little girl. Precious, precious. The look on her face is hilarious!
Oh yes that movie/house is the best!!! Classic.
Oh yeah I love that house too!
Another old TV series apartment that still looks pretty good albeit a little formal is Fraiser. Take the people with the dated haircuts out and you really can’t tell which year it’s from!
I’ll have to look for that next time a rerun is on. Fun!
Carmel @ our fifth house says
I bought that same vase! LOVE it! Oh and I’m glad to know that I’m not the only person that watches tv and takes mental decor notes at the same time. I’ve never thought about taking pics – my hub might think I’ve lost my mind ;)
i have actual missoni items (bought when we had a layover in austria a few years back)in my ND & AZ homes. sweaters, throws, pillows etc…, but i thought for our MN log cabin, i would purchase some of the items from the target collection. i gotta say, i was a little bummed at the quality (certainly not good enough to be clawing some suburban housewifes eyes out in a black friday like frenzy), but its good enough for the cabin. me & the bf are calling it our “tickle me missoni” stuff.
I truly hope that folks will be so disgusted with the mRk ups on eBay that no one will purchase them and all those fpgreedy Missoni boarders will be left with a mountain of stuff.
the kicker is that if it doesn’t sell on Ebay.. they can always return it for the purchase price at Target.. and aren’t out a dime (unless they had a posting fee on Ebay)
Emily T says
Missoni for Target did not dissapoint. I fell in love with Missoni while travelling in Italy during college and never forgot the cool knits and designs-they are just plain timeless and different than anything I’ve ever seen. I was online at 6 AM tuesday and texting with girlfriends, “theres nothing on the site!” and then “the site is up! GO!” and my purchases were made by 6:20 AM. So excited to see all the goodies I selected once they are shipped to me. Also got a ton of xmas shopping done too. (PS Rachel Zoe has a Missoni Bugaboo stroller that comes with a zig zag knit baby blanket, too. I DIE!)
Liz R says
Missed out on the Missoni stuff. I guess I figured it’d be like the other designer collaborations and I’d be able to pick something up later. I rather wanted a scarf. Oh well. My husband and I love the Big C though. Oliver Platt in the second season is outstanding. And I’d love to steal their kitchen.
so this is kind of unrelated to this post, but just popped into my mind when i saw the pic for the board in the hallway. did you ever consider trying to find a cool ornate vintage (whoa adjective overload) grate/vent to use for the a/c vent? probably hard to find in the right size, but it could be cool!
Man, that would be amazing!
That’s so funny taking pics of the TV, but a totally good idea! We got rid of cable over a year ago since we don’t have time to watch TV and were losing so much $ on the cable/DVR package. . . SO not into Missoni, but the items you snagged are cute!
Wow, is that why target’s website was crashing?? I’ve been trying to update my baby registry on there and it has been quite the pain! (and yeah, I have never heard of Missoni before, haha)
I loved the one piece for my 10 month old, but I buy at target for cheap! I’m not trendy enough to spend 30 dollars on something for my baby that she’ll grow out of. I may check my local run-down target for their home stuff, maybe I’ll get lucky..
Jen @ The Decor Scene says
I definitely pause and rewind the TV, but I never thought about taking a picture of it. Awesome idea! :D
And now I didn’t get to Target…..sounds crazy, but I will have to check it out soon.
Gloria @ A Little Paint says
While I don’t take pictures of things I see on TV, I certainly gasp at all the wrong moments because I’m so enamored with the decor. People are dying, and I’m all like “Do you SEE that ceiling!”
hahahaha!!! i do stuff like that during movies!!! my friends love me for it b/c i will whisper “that duvet is from pottery barn, and the chair is so Pier 1 last season” haahaaa
The Missoni thing is ca-ray-zay! Me and horizontal stripes don’t get along so I was safe from its snare. :) Super cute boots for Clara though!
One time, I saved $85 at Kroger! And then I drove through to buy gas and got 90c off/gallon! Wow! I loves me some Kroger. I even bought a dog there once.
Was that why there was a line in front of my local Target at 8AM this past Tuesday??? Cute stuff but I don’t think I’d wait in line for it. I’m sure some items will show up in local thrift stores sooner or later.
I have seen some Missoni for Target on Craig’s List- the bike is going for $1250!!!
Amy T says
Here in NC, there were a dozen or so women stalking the aisles of Target at 8:00am Tuesday. With carts full o’ Missoni. I got nuthin. Went in for the women’s rainboots but was foiled :-( Oh well….who am I kidding, I never wear rainboots!
oh no! say it ain’t so! I am in NC and was hoping our lovely state would be out of the Missoni loop. I may try to ghetto Target down Capital Blvd this weekend. :)
Bahahahaha…ghetto Target on Capital. I call it the same thing.
I didnt get the Missoni thing. I read about it, and saw a couple cute things in the line, but I wasnt wacky about it honestly.
I remember you wrote a post a long time about when you see things that YOU own in your home on TV. I get super excited about that and will pause the TV and sometimes take a picture of it. To do what with? To prove that Im cool, I guess :) We have the same baby monitor as they do on Modern Family. Thats my latest “HEY WE HAVE THAT!!!”.
And the CLive Bixsby episode STILL makes me and my husband snicker. Everynow and again one of us will say “heellllo clive”. Were nerds.
Lisa in Seattle says
I do that too! Actually stood up and shrieked when I saw Nate Berkus had the same Crate and Barrel Clairemont accent table that we have! In the new season he has a coffee table that looks similar to the Clairemont but not quite the same, and I spent half the episode squinting into the TV screen trying to figure out the differences. Now we’re getting a different accent table and I am totally Craigslisting the Clairemont with “AS SEEN ON NATE BERKUS!”
