Crown and Crumpet

Candy Colored Goodness in San Francisco
I've never been to San Francisco but I ran across these images of 
I love these colors as everyone can tell from looking at images of my own living room and dining room.
Sofa is beyond pretty and how cute is that dog pillow?
Love the Queen pillow too that you can see in the first photo.
Anyway...I thought of these photos when I saw on another blog yesterday that 
Target is carrying a special line of Calypso St. Barth.
The blogger's blog that I read about it on, hated it.
I think it was the colors she detested the most.
But I like them...and will be going to Target to check it out.
There were several things I could imagine adding to my place.
Turquoise Elephant Teapot - oh yes...absolutely!
Pink Elephant Teapot - oh, yes I will, if Mr. Turquoise Elephant is sold out.

Pretty Tableware
Spectacular Blue Tray
Tiered Pink Tray
Pretty Pink Pillows
I even find this Silver Poof hard to resist.

See all the items here at Target.

I'll choose a winner on April 15.

I saw this store somewhere a while back and was carried away with it then and still am. I heart that sofa!
It's been a while since I've been to Target. I'm liking the tiered tray.

If you go to S.F. be sure to wear some flowers in your hair and let me know so I can go too. It's one of my favorite cities and I dream about going back for a visit since I will probably never get to live there. This collection at Targay is fab.

I looked in the windows of Crown and Crumpet one evening in San Francisco. Unfortunately, it was closed and I haven't been back to that area of the city since.Now, I really want to go and check it out.
