2009/354: Christmas Cactus

Saw this little guy at IKEA last week-end, jumping up and down, and shouting pick me! pick me! … and couldn’t resist.


Seize The Day

Did anyone else go to IKEA’s “Seize The Day” sale? On Tuesday they had these dishes on sale for just $9.99 (for 18 pieces!). You had to have a coupon – which they were handing out right just inside the entrance doors – in order to get a set, and it was only one set per customer. But thanks to Amber’s help, I got to snag two sets.

And, since the name of these dishes is 365+1 it’s only fitting that they end up on my blog 😉

Mother’s Day Adventures

OK, it wasn’t exactly an “adventure”, but I got to go to one of my favorite stores yesterday.  We got there early enough to browse through the furniture part of the store, had lunch in their restaurant, and then browsed through the downstairs. We looked at lamps for the dining room and I think we could both agree on this one http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70089447 I love the option of candles or light bulbs. We didn’t buy it yet because Greg won’t have time to put it up before we leave for vacation, so we’ll just have to go back 😉 The girls found some huge plush dolphins that they fell in love with, and Greg bought them. Stay tuned for pictures!

I’m already looking forward to going back with a friend this fall, after the new school year starts. Just her and me… no kids to slow us down, and no husbands to tell us to hurry up.


Rainy Day Therapy

What’s better on a cold, rainy day than a trip to IKEA?

Btw. this isn’t the picture I wanted to post. I took one of the IKEA sign but when I got home, there was no image information for that file on my CF card. Sounds like the perfect reason to go back soon 😉
