It has been super busy around here, but I wanted to drop in and leave you with a cozy winter photo.  Not only do I love the old shabby chair, but also the thick knit blanket and the antlers…

Hope to have more projects for you soon! 🙂

My First Ikea Visit- EVER!

May 19, 2009 at 7:54 am (Home Changes and Additions, Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Yes, its true.  I’m a small town girl, never been to Ikea.  We took a little road trip to Chicago this weekend with some friends to visit the monstrous store- WOW.  Love it.  That’s all you can really say.  Tony even enjoyed this shopping trip- was it the beer that you can drink while there?? 🙂  We didn’t come home with too many exciting things this time, but we got what we went for- a new duvet cover!  We also got a few pillows to replace the raggedy ones in the living room, and a yummy smelling candle.  All on the cheap!  I wish we lived closer because we will definitely be making the trip back when we need something!

The new duvet cover- looks like we need a bed-skirt too! – and the grey blanket is also from Ikea.

The big black and white pillow is actually a cover, which we stuffed with three of the old dilapidated pillows, and the black one is also new.  We think they tie in the black curtains a bit better.

A cute little delicious candle- for $2.50 you can’t go wrong!

Also- the counter-tops are half in and looking great.  They are planned to be done tonight!! Yay!
