The Hysteria!

OK, so I'm interrupting my normal posts on the jobs I've been working on, or DIY posts from around my house to talk about the Missoni for Target line -- did you guys go out and pick anything up? I honestly didn't have my heart set on anything, and thought it was crazy how the masses went out in search of stuff when the line debuted earlier this week! Wow...

Anyway, I had to go to Target today for some posterboard, so I of course checked out what my Target had to offer - which was dwindling down to not much. I ended up getting 2 matching melamine plates, in what I consider to be a pretty classic Missoni zig-zag.

I propped it up on my bookshelf. I'm a lover of pattern, so the bright zig-zag pattern on my shelves was a welcome change!

(yes, this shot includes 2 book on my bookshelves that embarassingly display my vampire book obsession. And while we're on the topic of pop culture - do any of you guys watch True Blood? What about that season finale?!)

  1. Couldn't even fathom going to Target to fight off the crowds. You're plates are cute though :)

    The finale was pretty good, though VERY different than the book. Not sure how I feel about that...

  2. All sold out in my town! :( Lovely plates. And, as far as the TB SF...all i can say is...WOAH! I can't believe the ending...and i'm kinda happy Sookie broke it off with both. :(

  3. I'm about four weeks behind on True Blood. :( I think I might just wait for the entire season to come out on DVD and just have a 2-day straight marathon.

  4. Still don't get what all the craziness was about. Yes it's cool but not enough to make me get up early to run to my Target and be there when the doors opened.

    True Blood on the other hand - WOW that was a good ending!!

  5. I was like you didn't have my heart set on anything in particular. I just wanted to see the stuff in person. I did pick up a few things- a vase, shower curtain, and some cute shoes for my daughter and I. I have the vamp addiction ;) I'm a Vampire Diaries girl myself -have only ever watched a few episodes of True Blood.

  6. I wasn't really sure what all the hype was about with Missoni - and I wasn't willing to brave the crowds. I am, on the other hand, willing to go to the midnight showing of breaking dawn. You are not alone in your vampire obsession. :)

  7. missoni has cute stuff but not worth it at target! onto the important stuff! True Blood. i am not sure how i feel about it. there are so many things left open. for starters, the whole jason thing. he has so much going on. we still dont know about crystal and they werpanthers and he already has himself in another mess. then arliens warning from her dead baby daddy. and the chains from the old king. so much! to much!

  8. I got those plates too! But, I got a set of 8 to use as dinner plates- I may display one though- love that! Target was a madhouse and yes, I was up there at 8. I did get two cute cardigans in the zigzag, tights, these plates and a long coat/cardigan. Spent more than I like, but I do feel like I got some good finds. Love your blog!
