a little Orla Kiely in the house

Going to Target has always felt like something of a treat to me, even when it was just a five minute drive from my house.  Now the closest Target is 50 minutes away, making it a veritable Destination.
Don't worry, I've still managed to make it there about once a month. ; )  On my last trip I made a beeline to the hand soap section to find myself a couple of these.

Target is carrying Method soaps in Orla Kiely patterns for the fall.  Have you seen them? It just doesn't get much better than this. 

I really love Orla Kiely - from purses to wallpaper, her patterns look fresh and happy anywhere.  This wallpaper has been around a lot and it's discontinued now, but it will always be my favorite.

Wouldn't this be the happiest surprise in the closet?

Pretty Orla Kiely umbrella.

Orla clothes are amazingly charming. 

Always cute-cute handbags.

The thing is that Orla's pricey wallpaper, clothes and purses are not very likely to make it into my house.  But some Orla Kiely hand soap, I can manage.   I justified two, so I'd have an extra one on hand for a pretty, fall hostess gift.  You just never know when you'll need one.
