Parasol and Plum Blossoms

Well folks if you haven't already heard, Liberty of London has landed at your local Target store. Add my name to the list of people who are gaga over the stuff. I did show fiscal restraint and only bought two items, the umbrella above and an adorable little skirt for my daughter. I'm sure this flash of frugality won't last past the weekend. I wonder if Target has those flatbed wagons like that are available at Costco? I think that would work best for the number of decorative storage boxes I'd like to take home with me.

My husband was a sweetie and held the umbrella for me while I snapped this picture to share.
We did this little photo shoot out in our front yard. All was going well until a neighbor walked past and said to my husband, "Hey Mary Poppins, how's it going?" It was at this point that my husband clicked the umbrella shut and said, "Okay, that's a wrap!" Thanks a lot neighbor Crankenberry, you just cost me my production assistant.
Thank you for "poppin" by today. For a peek at other pink delights please visit out fabulous hostess Beverly for a list of all of today's participants.

Melissa, your umbrella is springtime beautiful. And the angle that your assistant held the umbrella at made it look extra nice, haha! I'll have to check these out at Target.
Happy Spring and Pink Saturday.

Don't have a Target nearby but I do love your umbrella posing with the blossoms. Joni

Liberty's - yes, I just love that shop. So easy to get lost in there (literally) and the fabric department - if you ever get to London, you've definitely got to visit!

Happy Pink Saturday!

That is too funny about your hubby and neighbor!! I am going to have to visit Target and get a look myself!!

That is such a cute and springy picture! My daughter saw that umbrella a few days before they were to launch the line. She should have bought it, because it was no longer there the day they put out the rest of the merchandise. I think we did enough damage though, because, we went back and bought more stuff for presents a few days later. I ended up buying the shift dress that went under the trench coat. It fit really well, I was so surprised.

I was going to go to Target and check it out but I'm waiting until payday like a good girl- I just hope everything isn't gone *gasp, shudder sigh swoon!*

LOVE the parasol- maybe I can find Wellies to match!

Sorry for my late visit but glad I could get here and enjoy PS!

Happy PINKS!

Oh wow, what a beautiful umbrella! Our Target doesn't seem to have all the pretties that others do. Bummer!

I am laughing out loud as I read this, because it sounds so much like something my husband would say too! How cute.

And I ADORE the new line of things at Target and was coveting that same umbrella!
