IKEA Here We Come....

We are heading to IKEA this morning. Do you have an IKEA where you live? Man, I LOVE that store. It is so much fun to walk around and look. They have so many awesome little things....and I love little things. Lots of little decorative things and kitchen things....not that I spend much time in the kitchen cooking, but I do love the cute little cooking things....lots of candle things and plant things and towel things.....just lots and lots of things. I hope to come home with some things today.

Last week when we went to get the chairs and the drapes...if you recall...I was in extreme pain. We walked in, got our chairs and drapes and walked out. That was all I could handle. It was so sad to be in IKEA and not be able to look at all of the little lovely things.

My list today says:

One more pair of drapes since one pair isn't quite enough for the front window. So cute and dirt cheap at $14.99 a pair! Here they are.....

Candle holders that I saw in my Country Living magazine. I think I want about a dozen or so. One side is a candle holder....flip it over and it's a votive! Love them for 49 cents each! Here they are.....
Some white candles for the holidays

Black picture frames....I'm going to frame lots of black and white photos for the shelf in the living room. I think I just want thin black metal cheapies from the dollar store, but even something like this would work for $2.99....A little round table for between the two new chairs. This is so darn cute for $19.99, but I might want to shop resale for my table and find something old and beat up for even less!

A couch cover....even though I can't find one online at IKEA that would fit this couch right, I'm going to look. I don't think they have quilts and that is my next option. I really want to find something this weekend.

And any other fun and funky little things that I might just have to have because we are going to IKEA and I love little things!! Chee Hoo!

We don't have an IKEA store near I don't know what they offer. Good luck in your shopping!

My daughter's bedroom furniture came from IKEA. It's very sleek and simple; we love it. Hope you find lots of neat things!

I've never been to an Ikea, but I've always wanted to! I just looked it up, the closest one is in's probably yours! A tad far from Kansas City. But there is one about an hour from my best friend, who I'll be visiting over the holidays. Maybe I'll have to request an Ikea trip to check it out!

Hope you find lots of great things!

I like the small things at Ikea which are indeed "awesome", but not the big things like sofas or beds.

I do like to eat their swedish meat balls and vegetable soup in a loaf of bread at the restaurant .

Anyway, it's great fun to visit Ikea ( BTW, I wrote a post on Ikea some time ago).

I loved the drapes and those cute candle holders so I looked online to see if there's a store even remotely close. Nope. That's probably a good thing - I could really do some damage in a store like that.

Hi Kathy, I saw your comments on "Nikon Sniper" about Australia. Should you ever come out here and find yourself down in Melbourne, let me know and I'd be happy to show you around.
