Target in Jones Valley is my home away from home! I love it in a major way! I could stay in there for hours! Pottery Barn is cool too but I am all about some Target!

I'm not a great shopper. But, when I have time to myself, which is super rare these days, I typically head to Target.

Wendy said...

Ok, I'm a bit computer-challenged, but here are 2 blogs I LOVE! http://madeittoprovidence.blogspot.com/ and http://theworldthroughtheeyesofme.blogspot.com/

My favorite place to shop is any thrift or antique store. I love digging through stuff and finding treasures that are unique and paint them or spiff them up in some way that makes them even better. I wish I had more time to do this! I also love Home Goods.
