Garden edging from Target

I just love this new garden edging I bought at Target. It appears to be faux stone but it is plastic pieces that just slide in. I couldn't find them on Target's website though.
Now I just need about 4 more boxes...I did find it on Walmart's website although the package it a little differently.
It is made by Suncast and is called Border Stone edging.

I just love the 2" x 6" bricks in the custom palette titled surf. I think this would look great in our kitchen. I can't believe there are no distributers in Southern California.

Dream of backsplash tile

I have been dreaming of what I will do to finish the kitchen. I saw Divine Design on HGTV the other day. And the color scheme she picked out for this couple's basement remodel is very close to what I envision my completed kitchen will look like. I love the backsplash tile she chose. I also love the beachy accents for our beach house. For my countertops I have decided on Caesarstone. I like the concrete gray color with a square or radius edge.
Now I just have to earn the funds to do it.. I am excited to have a complete vision.
