Genius. I love me some IKEA, but those clunky legs are a deal breaker. I’d happily swap them out for some of these!
And Steve McQueen at home is fascinating to me.
I want one of these portrait stamps.
Breaking! More This American Life retractions.
Sure, they’re just painted sticks, but they’re Swedish painted sticks, strung up as necklaces.
It’s true. I was kind of a gemstone geek.
These bracelets are so pretty, and exactly the kind of jewelry that I wear daily. I bought a set.

I am totally in love with those made for Ikea legs — makes me kind of sad that I’m not in the market for a sofa or bed. It’s funny how Ikea has spawned so many other businesses. I’ve been listening to This American Life for I can’t even remember how many years — if you have a long road trip ahead of you it’s a must podcast!

I JUST wrote a blog post this week about how I switched out the chunky legs that came with my IKEA Karlstad sofa for some slim mid-century-style legs! It’s made such a difference and my sofa doesn’t scream “IKEA” as much anymore :)
Here’s my post if you’d like to check it out:
LOVE the pretty legs you found, too!

Swoon: Steve McQueen. He was SO handsome. Ultimate Top 5 list.

Those retractions (especially the one regarding David Sedaris’s sexual orientation) made me laugh out loud. I don’t know if he gave the same talk at the readings you went to, but at the one I went to a couple years ago he shared some stories about writing for The New Yorker and dealing with their fact checking department that were hilarious.

The pegs are pretty, but did you see that it cost 26 Euros just to ship to the US or Canada? That’s $34 on top of extremely expensive pegs (110 Euros for 4 pegs, that’s $140)!
I think I’d be better off making my own. They’re cute, but not $174 cute.
