Orla Kiely at Target

Do you ever see something, put it in your cart and wander around with it... and eventually return to the spot you found it, returning it to the shelf?

I did that a couple of weeks ago with a set of Orla Kiely dish towels from Target. I've got some birthday money left over, and I'm absolutely head-over-heels in love with the line Orla put out with Target. I wanted to use the towels to make a tote bag.

Even more exciting than the towels is this tray, but I cannot find it anywhere. Believe me. I've tried. I might go to some pretty intense lengths to get my hands on this tray. Seriously.

..and have you seen these canisters? Be still, my heart. They're fabulous too. There's also a table cloth that would make a fabulous set of pillow cases... yes people--this is the stuff that goes through my mind. regularly. and when Ryan reads this, he'll smirk and shake his head. because it is oh-so-true. Or throw pillows.

Ok. Who am I kidding? It's all fabulous, and it's almost all sold out. The good stuff is gone, never to return, and I missed it. At least I can live vicariously through this Flickr Pool... or buy it for three times the price on eBay.

...but that tray. Has anyone seen that TRAY recently??

You crack me up. The towels really would make a great bag, though. I had to go google Orla Kiely...

Shara--googling Orla may or may not result in an unnatural obsession. Trust me. I know.

My current purse obsession is an Orla bag... oh, how cute it is...

Sorry- I tried- it is sold out here, too! I understand obsessions!

So, I suppose the bathing suit and Rocket Dogs are out of the picture now? :0) Cute funky stuff though.

The bags are cute. I love the colors more than anything. This coming from the girl who's carried a little red purse for years. :) However I just about choked when I saw the price tags!! Glad you found your tray!!!
