I finally went out to the DMV to update my address (it’s only been a little over a year – what’s the hurry?). Well it was a lot easier and faster than I thought it would be, I didn’t have to rush back to work on anything, and I was already halfway to IKEA…
First, I’ll set the scene with an obligatory mirror shot. There, that’s great. I almost bought a little bulldog toy to bring home for Brandon, but then I realized we’d actually OWN the thing and what the hell am I supposed to do with a stuffed animal? So I snapped a picture of it instead.
Did you know you can buy an entire cowhide at IKEA? YES YOU CAN. And you know what? I think they can actually be kind of chic, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Also sheepskins and flokati rugs. For some reason, those don’t weird me out as much.
Red white and blue? U-S-A! U-S-A!
I picked up a few pink, orange, and red outdoor chair cushions for the porch (even though I liked the mustard stripey ones better). I figured the red would be good with the red tables I have already, and they were only $5 each.
They have some nice lanterns on display for summer now.
I bought a wanna-be Le Creuset dutch oven (for $59).
Stripes, stripes, everywhere you look in IKEA there are stripes. I really liked both of these (a runner and a rug).
I’m thinking about going back for that last one. Dining room, perhaps?
Oh, I also bought a whole BUNCH of fabric, but neglected to take any photos. Oh well. Maybe I’ll actually make something with it and then take pictures. For someone who just learned how to sew a few months ago, I sure do have a lot of fabric that I’m hoarding.
