I Spy | What I Found While Antiquing

Hello loves,

This week was my Mom's birthday - and despite the fact that I was feverish - I mustered up the strength to peruse the aisles of her favorite antique malls.  I'll admit that this is not my most favorite thing to do, but at Christmastime there's all sorts of cute, vintage, and sparkly odds and ends that were just begging to be Instagrammed. 

Nancy Drew is one of my most favorite book series. 
Always was, always will be.

To be honest - Christmas decorations used to be weird.
And creepy.

This is not Christmasy. But I love it.
And Pizza.

Happy holidays,

Traci J

Gift Guide for Her - Target Edition

Hello loves!

Whenever I need to purchase a gift last minute - or I'm buying a gift for someone and I just do not know what to get them - I immediately find myself at Target.  I swear, they have something for everyone (including me, which is why I generally end up with a gift for myself too).  I decided to peruse the Target website and come up with my top 5 picks for holiday gifts for her this season.

What are you buying for your friends this Christmas?  Have you picked up anything great from Target lately - did I miss something?  Let me know in the comments.

Happy Holidays,

XOXO Traci J
