Last August, I posted about my coral color crush. I’m still loving coral, but I’ve also got a new crush on the color mint. It’s everywhere right now. Last week at Target, I couldn’t get enough mint. I bought a set of four mint green dip bowls, a mint green photo frame and a decorative minty milk glass bottle (none of which are available online, unfortunately).
Speaking of Target (and this is no April Fools’ joke), am I the last one on earth to know about the Target debit card?! When the cashier explained that it’s not a credit card (instead it’s linked directly to your checking account) and that the rewards for using it include 5% off your purchases, free shipping at target.com, pharmacy rewards and 30 extra days for returns – I signed up and saved 5% on my cart full o’ goodies. I can’t imagine why anyone who frequents Target wouldn’t sign up for this. You can sign up online or just take a blank check with you the next time you go to Target and they’ll sign you up right in the checkout lane.
Enough about that – back to my new color obsession. This shade of green has a great vintage/retro feel, but is very fresh at the same time. It screams spring/summer. In fact, it makes me crave a mint-chocolate-chip ice cream cone. I’m not one to commit to trendy colors in a big way (like painting all my kitchen cupboards mint), but I do love to incorporate seasonal pops of color via accessories like pillows, candles, kitchen towels, etc. Here are a few minty fresh finds from around the world-wide web…
