This and That…

A Trip to Target
I had a few hours to kill between my teeth cleaning and Dr. appointment the other day. So I took a trip through the local Target was a fun distraction.
I couldn’t believe all the faux plants! Of course, this inspired me to take down the faux evergreen trees, pinecones, and sleds. They were replaced with faux plants and rose-colored pillows for some color.
Here are the home decor items I purchased at Target…

My husband and I went shopping for quartz last week for the new boat renovations.
