BEHOLD! All Things Bright & Beautiful @ Target!



I am on a mission tonight to get a big batch of seedless raspberry jam done for gift-giving at Christmas, so I'm hauling out the canner, big jam pots and jars and lids and all the other paraphanalia it takes to make and can a batch of jam... and makin' a big ol' mess in the kitchen tonight after supper. I'll be at it until late tonight and it'll be so good to get it done. We picked over a gallon of berries last night alone and could probably pick as many again tonight...I wish you were next door, I'd tell you to get over here and get all you wanted and then we'd all be jam makin' fools!

Anyway, I thought I'd show you this "sweet" bowl I got at Target on a quick run in for a bridal shower gift (more on that later!). This bowl and these dishtowels were too bright and summery for me to pass up,(weren't even on clearance yet, I can't believe I did that and paid full price!).

I don't know if they'll be a gift for someone or if they'll have to stay here and live in our kitchen when it's done...but I thought you might like to run and get yours before the fall stuff hits the shelves (anytime now). There was a ton of stuff in that section that was perfection and cuteness that was so hard to resist, but this I could not leave.

Just so you know, these were both found up front with the seasonal stuff near the food in my Target!

The jam sounds delish; I've done the same with strawberries earlier in the season. The bowl and cloths are quite lovely together...GREAT gift!

Sa-weet stuff from Target!
I plan on getting strawberries at Meijer this week...only .99#. Hoping to get maybe 8# and do some jam. With the cooler weather we're in for this week-end, it will be perfect timing!

Hey Joni, I can almost taste that jam and the bowl and towel are too cute! I found a bowl with lady bugs and melons at Dollar General one time and had to have it.Happy Canning!!

Hi there. Reading that you're making jam for Christmas gifts...well now, that is exactly what I feel like doing. So, thanks for motivating me (altho it won't be tonight!) Mine will be blueberry, but still...I needed someone to get me moving. :)

Did they have the red and white checked glasses? I bought eight of them but would like some more and they're sold out now. Love what you got. Don't you love Target? Mimi
