As you've probably heard, the Fixer Upper folks have just come out with their new line of Christmas and housewares decor called "Hearth And Hand".
I'd planned to walk down the block and end up at the bookstore, but instead I had to text him to pick me up.
I sent him a picture of my cart full of Christmas with a text that said:
"Need you to pick me up after all...
Found lots of Christmas stuff to buy.
On a good note, my prescription was only 32 cents!"
Here's what he texted back:
So let's look at the new Christmas stuff from Hearth and Hand shall we?
This wreath is done with white berries instead of the typical red ones. I like the colors and style because I think they will look good even after Christmas during the cold winter months.
Two long, chime-type bells hang down from the top. If hung on a door, it will sound off every time the door is open.
There are two types of Hearth and Hand wreaths. This is the one I bought, but there was a Lambs Ear one too.
I found I liked the Lambs Ear garland even though I didn't buy that type of wreath. I bought two of the 9-foot garland, and I plan to buy a few more of those.
My favorite purchase was this white throw with blanket stitches in dark green.
There were some real pretty matching white knit pillows (without the blanket stitching), but I already have some similar ones from Pottery Barn that are just as nice.
Here it is paired with last year's $14 Christmas pillow from T J Max.
I think I forgot to mention the throw has cute green pom-pom's on each of the corners.
Let's get another shot of that throw...as the song says,
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
That's all I bought of Hearth and Hand stuff, but I did buy some other things while I was at Target.
I bought three boxes of these lights:
I'm always a sucker for the small, battery-operated twinkle lights! These were hard to pass up because I love the tiny flocked pinecones in the strand of lights.
The battery pack takes two, AA batteries and can be turned to "on" or to a 6-hour timer.
I'll put a strand or two of lights on this wreath when I hang it, and I'll probably need three strands for the two long garlands.
As you can tell, I'm gonna need to buy at least two more strands of these lights!
Here's some cute appetizer-size plates from Target's Dollar Spot (usually at the front of Target stores) where things are regularly priced at $1, $3, or $5.
The little plates were a set-of-two package for $3. I like to use these type of seasonal plates as coasters. There were several more designs to choose from, including a buffalo checked black-and-red one.
I bought this Merry Christmas pillow too...
A large gallon, canning-jar-type canister that I plan to put lights in until after the cold winter passes...
And, for the practical side of the holiday, I bought a new remote control plug-in device, with three receptors, for our old Christmas lights.
We already have something similar, but they aren't flat like these.
Well,...32 cents for my prescription and a good bit more for the Christmas decor! As always, all opinions are my own and I was not paid or reimbursed for my purchases.
I'm happy with everything except the red pillow, which is a little too bright and too much red for me, now that I've gotten to like the black, white and green look of the Hearth and Home decor.
I'll probably return the red pillow when I go back to buy more twinkling, pinecone lights. Meanwhile, I'm joining the party at Foodie Friday And Everything Else. Hope you'll hop over there too.
Thanks for dropping by!
