Ikea Trip

A few weeks back my Mom asked me if I would like to go to Ikea (2 hours worth of driving and a 1 1/2 hour ferry ride each way). She asked me. As if it was a question. Silly Mom.

And now the time has come for our shopping trip of crazy-dash-around-the-store-and-eat-swedish-meatballs spree. Which has turned my attention towards the Ikea website for ideas. Here are a few products that I am really wanting to see this Saturday, and hopefully take home with me.

IKEA STOCKHOLM - Cute bowl for fruit and what not on the dining room table

IKEA STOCKHOLM BLAD - I have loved these curtains for ever, but at $100, they are out of my price range. I just want to see them in person (or find a slightly damaged/marked down one to take home)

KASSETT - Needing more storage in my living room, and I think these are a cute idea for stashing movies, magazines, and toys.

GISLEV - not sure where I will put this, but it is super cute and I am really into grays right now.

MÖRKT - this little lantern is so cute it should be everywhere! Maybe I'll get a few..

SALONG - for the main bathroom counter top (yes, that silly bathroom renowe are currently ignoring)

ÖDMJUK - I have been on the hunt for the perfect tea pot for ages and this one might fit the bill! We'll see on Saturday when I give it the Erin-once-over.

SKURAR - too cute! The website doesn't say how big it is, but I picture a few of these growing herbs lined up on my kitchen window sill.

JUBLA - not all candles have to be white - these beautifully saturated candlesticks really have my attention.

ERIKSLUND - for my upper hallway black-and-white gallery.

BILD FJÄLLSTA - for my upper hallway gallery as well - and make some nice black frames to match!

When was the last time you visited the Ikea Palace of House Love? Are you jealous that I get to go in two days? Do you have any knowledge about why the heck those little meatballs are so yummy? Me neither, but I don't fight it.

  1. I just picked up a sofabed mattress from there. It didn't fit in the bed frame so i exacto knifed it.
