By now everyone has had the chance to check out the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Collection at Target. Normally I’m a little disappointed with those Target special collections. I can never find the items I’m looking for or it’s not what I expected, but this collection exceeded my expectations. And it’s all black, white and wood. I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to Black, White, Wood & Sometimes Denim. Here’s what I couldn’t leave without: The little nesting houses, the black house bud vase which is perfect for a sprig of something from the yard. Right now I have a branch with fall leaves that inspired my Thanksgiving place cards. In the winter it will be something evergreen. They come in three sizes so a grouping of them would be cute too. I even picked up a pair of black tapers for the candlesticks on the mantel.
I could not resist the black and white Christmas stockings. The kids pretend play items are adorable. I’ve been wanting to update an Ikea play kitchen like Caitlin did for her boys (see it here) and the Wooden Toy Cocoa Set and Cookie Baking Set would be perfect! The work bench is full of dramatic play too!
I would love to hear your thoughts on the collection and what did you find?
