Boo Banner & A Brilliant Bargain!

My friend Toni is an interior designer and a crafter extraordinaire. She just started offering crafting classes at her beautiful home in Temecula, and so when I got her e-mail inviting me to the class, I jumped at the chance to absorb some of Toni's decorating wisdom. Toni made chai lattes, she had pumpkin cookies, and since we hadn't seen each other in a while, it was fun to catch up and share ideas. Of course, I forgot to take pictures of her set-up and the crafting session (probably because I'm new to this blogging thing).

Later in the day, while doing my grocery shopping at Super Target (a dangerous place to grocery shop, I might add) I stumbled upon a super duper bargain. This mirror was on clearance! It was originally $34.99 and was marked down to $8.74...WHOO HOO! The black inner part of the frame was painted a shabby chic looking aqua blue when I bought it, but I brought it home and a little black paint did the trick. I have this ugly little space in my dining room, that I have been struggling to decorate ever since we moved to our new home in Menifee. But the mirror fits perfectly in this space and my new Boo Banner is displayed perfectly here, awaiting halloween.

Thanks Toni & Thanks Super Target. You made my day!

  1. I was looking at your post and noticed it was almost to the date one year ago that you last blogged. Interesting I thought. When I restarted my blog this year it had been almost 1 year since I had last blogged to the date as well. Things that make you go hmmmm. Love the bargain find at Target. and the boo banner looks so cute hanging from it. I am so glad I could help make your Day! XOXO
