John Derian~

I'm sure by now you've all heard about the collaboration between John Derian and Target. Well, I have been waiting on pins and needles to go to my local Target and see the pieces in person. I had been to my local Target a few times since the official release date on September 5 and didn't see anything, then yesterday as I ran into the store to pick up a few essentials for my invalid hubby, I ran across an endcap chock full of John Derian goodies.




My budget is next to nil right now, so I really didn't have much to spend. Luckily, the pieces are very well priced! Just a note: they are melamine...not ceramic...but that's okay by me.


I had my eye on these fun bug plates ever since the first press releases started popping up online. Now, I must tell you they are VERY small...almost like saucers, but that was just perfect for what I had in mind. I grabbed myself a cute dragonfly plate for $1.99 and a matching tumbler. They now have a home on my bathroom counter to hold a few essentials.





Then I ran across this cute little tray which I had NOT seen online. It too is quite small, but it more than makes up for in charm, what it lacks in size. It now has a home on my cooktop as a spoon rest.


Here are just a few of the other fun pieces that are available....
















Like them? I thought you would. So hurry to your local Target and pick yourself up some John Derian goodies. You'll be glad you did.

Nice stuff. Some of it reminds me of some of what the Graphics Fairy has available.

I purchased the three-tiered tray and love it---very whimsical pattern! It contains the fresh fruit on my counter top. Kudos to Target on another successful partnership. And thanks for reminding me that I may need to make a second trip back to pick up some more John Derian goodies! :) As if I need another excuse to go to Target...

Oh wow,love the bug plates and im all melamine at home, we eat our dinner on melamine plates, so this is right up my street, could do with some little ones to use as dip plates just the right size by the sounds of it. Im off to Tarjay straight away. Have a wonderful week.

Those are the cutest plates! I live 2 miles from Target (very dangerous) and I'm in the store a few times a day. I will have to stop by yet again today and have a look for those beauties!

I love the coasters at the top. They would match my bedroom perfectly! I believe I have a few other items I need to return to Target, which means I'll have a little 'free' money to spend!

Thanks!

Oh, I love the botanical plates! I have to admit, eating on bug plates freaks me out a bit though.

I just want you to know that you are a wicked woman, lol. I have never heard of this John, but I am so in love with everything you showed. I too am financially embarassed and will have to wait till I have more money in my purse before I check out my Target for his things.
