When stressed, I find great comfort in roaming the aisles of Target. Looking around to see what design trends and designers they're going to capitalize on is a pleasurable activity to soothe my nerves. I've been known to spend some lonely Friday nights there placing items in my basket, only to take them out before checking out.
I worked all last weekend, so last night I made my escape. While walking in, I called Bobby to see if we needed anything. Cat food. Always cat food. The little monsters can't get enough Fancy Feast. This was my reason to go to Target...yes, that's it.
The real reason – I love holiday decor and store displays. Target uses some great designers for their in store displays and theme items. So, I headed to the Easter section and was not disappointed. Beautiful, colorful, vintage-inspired bunnies all done contemporary Japanese-like vector-style. Lots of gradients. Make sense? It does to me.
Unfortunately, the graphics didn't translate well to plush like last year's campaign. The stuffed bunnies looked cheap and the necks were too delicate for the over-sized heads. But the plates were delightful. I bought a few.
I wish they were ceramic.
There were some really cute colorful metal buckets which would make great containers for a child's room. I couldn't justify the purchase.
These wooden eggs were adorable, too, but I think the decals would easily peel off.
If I had a child, I would definitely buy one of these:
One last thing: Isn't this the scariest Easter bunny costume you've ever seen? There are arms growing out of its head.
