MY HEARTH AND HAND HAUL

After waiting months for the new Target collection Hearth & Hand to come out with Magnolia I finally was able to snag the items I really wanted! I can't lie I set an alarm on my phone so I wouldn't miss it and it worked I pretty much woke as they were hitting Live on the site.

I got everything in the mail and saw the collection in person and it so speaks to the style of Jo & Chip you can tell every piece was thoughtfully designed and chosen for their collection and the price point is really good. Ok now time for me to share my favorites! 

Plaid Throw Pillow - I bought these online then bought them in person, I know I'm crazy but don't worry I retuned the fresh ones that came in the mail at our local target. Our new sofa looked bare and it was driving me crazy. These aren't what I expected cause their is a fine gold outline that you can barely see online, I love them though and the are comfy. 

White & Black x Throw Pillow - This wasn't something on my list until I saw it in person the little black x's are a lot cuter in person than it looked online which is one reason it wasn't initially on my radar not to mention we got a new sofa from the family and they went with it perfectly. 

Pie Server - Simple as pie ;) we don't own any sort of cake/pie server and this one was so good 

Measuring Spoons - I have the worst luck with measuring spoons breaking on me or my garbage disposal eating them so these ones were hard to pass up they are metal and come with a leather band around them so I won't lose them! 

Wooden Toy Cookie Set & Wooden Toy Coco Set - I'm a sucker for wooden toys always have always will be so when I saw these two sets I couldn't pass them up, I'm going to be saving one of them for next Christmas for Remy, but the coco set Kayden and I will probably be enjoying soon! 

Plaid PJs {Kids & Baby} - My little guy could always use some new pjs and these were hard to pass up once I saw they had some for the little lady on the way, Kayden had also been asking for an outfit to match with Remy so these seemed perfect. 

Wooden Garland - I was iffy on this one but the price was so good and exactly what I was looking for so it was hard to pass up and so happy I didn't. It's really great quality & is great for the fireplace or your Christmas Tree.  

Morning Stoneware Mugs - Coffee loves unite cause these mugs are the bomb!! I LOVE them they are heavy duty, large and keep the coffee warmer longer for some reason. They also fit my hubby's hands so I was instantly sold! 

So I know I got a lot f goodies from the collection but there are still 3 things I didn't buy that I LOVED & am still eyeing.

House Lantern - We had none of these in our stores in the black color and I couldn't see it making a safe journey to our house in a box that I know would get thrown on our porch so I passed up on it. 

Portable Beverage Mug - I really loved this portable beverage mug but I just thought I'd look ridiculous carrying this 40oz thing around I couldn't find a use for it in my life BUT if you know someone who needs one as a gift get it now, you won't regret it. 

Metal Storage Bin - I couldn't find a use for this in my life till I got home and it was sold out. If I could go back in time and get it though it would be the perfect accessory for our fireplace.

DIY Target Wreath Napkin Rings

I always like to dress up my tables for the holidays and Christmas was no exception. I LOVE the traditional greens and red for the Christmas season, but couldn't find any napkin rings for our table this year until I hit the jackpot at the Target Dollar section. I found their Faux Greenery Garland for $3 and decided to make my own they turned out so cute that I want to share how I made them. 

Step 1 | Gather all of your supplies: Glue gun, glue sticks, ruler, floral clippers or scissors & napkins!

Step 2 | Plug in your glue gun & start cutting the garland about 6'' for every napkin ring you'll need to make. I cut out six of them since was have six place settings.

Step 3 | Make sure your glue gun is all heated up and start gluing each end of the 6'' of garland you had cut and connect it to the other end to make a circle.

Step 4 | Repeat the step above for each 6'' strand till you've make all of your napkin rings.  

Step 5 | Place the napkin rings on each napkin and you are done!

Supper easy, super cute and your table is all set for the holidays! Merry Christmas from LNLE!
