it's official...

target has all my money
~~
I buy almost everything that keeps me alive
in that store
~including my favorite frozen spinach and goat cheese pizza~
and
now with christmas just
9 days away
~said with my face in my hands and screaming like the boy from "home alone"~
they see me
daily
~~~~~
I have a new friend
who is part of our help-portrait group
and
she's beautiful and talented and has an etsy shop I think you'll love
want to meet her
?
okay
~~
also
I made another banner for a special blogging friend
who lives really far away
in the land of
beautiful
~
if you're in the mood
you can play
"where's waldo"
when you look at her banner
~
inside the banner you will find
~her baby boy
~her hubby walking and carrying their little boy
and
~~
see you soon
I'm off to target

  1. if this picture doesn't put one in the winter spirit i don't know what would. it's beautiful.

    i'm sure Target appreciates your business very much. we have to travel an hour and a half to the nearest Target so all my shopping goes to Wal- Mart. have a great day.

  5. Yikes. And I have the bulk of the shopping left to do. I am slow to build to this frenzy. Trying to avoid it usually.

    Yesterday I enjoyed the glitter and light and textures of the decorations, and the waiting. That is important too. The hope.

  7. Repeatedly I find that you are a woman after my own heart! This pretty much seals it for me...

    I have had a love affair with Target for the last 20 plus years... as much as I hate to admit I could BE that old.

  8. Happy Shopping ! Target has lots of my cash too - them and Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Viva la bargain hunting !
    Gorgeous photo work these days, beth. Do you realize how far you have come ? I hope so, talented One.
    Big love to you !

  11. OMG...such a cool header! Your so indie chic!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Gorgeous scene! I can hear the snow crunch as you walked along to take this shot...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love the header, loooove you, and love Sperlygirl!!

    There isn't a Tarzhay within 45 minutes of our town, and that is how I know we could never settle our gypsy bones here. No bookstores, no quaint little coffeeshops, nada...
    So, we will wander again, the only question now is...where to? haha!

    Happy hunting at Target!

  14. I never think about going to Target, but now I have a reason to go - frozen spinach and goat cheese pizza.

    Love the new banner you created for suzanne herself. Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You are so funny.
    We don't have Target up here, which is probably a good thing, or they would have all my money too!

    You are a master craftswoman when it comes to layering photos, my friend. Beautiful banner.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You're such a hoot; I never know what I'll find when I click on your link. Target. Yeah, they have a chunk of my change, too.

    I'll go visit your friend's Etsy shop.... I'm screaming right along with you. Plus, my daughter's birthday is the 21st. Yikes!

  24. i don't know how i've avoided target or the mall so far...i guess i'm in the creative avoidance program of denial that's there's only 9 days 'til christmas...and lordy, i'd better get to crackle'ackin'

    ReplyDelete
  25. Another woman after your own heart...for the spinach and goat cheese pizza. Lovely photograph, Beth.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the way the picture almost forces you to tilt you year as you look at it.....and I really love Suzanne's header..did you design that one too? I'd love to know how she/you did it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great banner, and I found waldo.
    have fun at target.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, I wish I were there. I can feel and smell the crispness of the air!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You do such a great job on those banners. I need to learn how to do that too.

    Wish I had a Target close by...I have to drive 35 miles to the closest Target!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes I agree with you- I think Target charges JUST to walk in the door (you just don't see it on the receipt- they keep that fee carefully hidden). Where my money has been going is JoANN's- even with my teacher discount it is still dangerous (more so!). What a beautiful winter shot-that could be a card!

    ReplyDelete
  31. i have my own version of your target shop, and oh dear... but it can't be helped, heee heee heeee

  32. Who among us doesn't luv Target?

    Wishing all good things for you and your family this holiday season, Beth.

    It's always a pleasure to visit your blog.

  33. i've taught myself to stay out of Target. it's dangerous in there.

    ReplyDelete
  34. well dangerous for the wallet i mean.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes, that evil place steals my money too. I'd only been in Target once or twice before one came to live at the bottom of the hill. Now we're fast friends. In the early days of my singlehood, I was so pathetic that I'd spend Saturday evenings wandering the aisles of Target. It was preferable to watching another three hours of HGTV.

  36. omgoodness! this photo is sheer love!
    and honey, yes, target has all my ends too! lol
    lets make sure we go to target when we are together.
    swoon!

  38. I love Target. My Mom and I have a December 26th tradition. We get up too early and head to Target. We buy presents for the next year. I'm not kidding. We do.

  40. You're not alone -- Target has all my money, too..
