We may have moved in August, but there is still plenty to be done to make this little apartment of ours feel more like a home. Maybe I'm taking my time because after the last move, we've agreed to never move out of this building, ever; but I think most of it is just that decorating and hanging art and everything you do to make a place more personal is overwhelming and usually kind of expensive.
I tend to focus on little corners--our bedside tables, my desk, a pretty tray on the coffee table--instead of immediately going to the bigger stuff like hanging frames. I've had the same six throw pillows for years and just switch them around into different rooms with different blankets. But of course, I've had the same three blankets for years, as well. It may be time for a change.
Last month, I shared some of my favorite TOMS for Target pieces here, and later that day I went out and picked up a few of them for myself. The throw blankets are seriously the softest things I've ever laid hands on, and the candle smells like a really handsome man, who I imagine has a beard and mostly wears flannel shirts. And because of these two items, someone in need will receive a blanket, and another will receive a week of meals.
TOMS for Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target + TOMS limited edition gift you buy, we're (Target) giving shoes, a blanket, or meals to those in need. #TOMSforTarget
