Last week I hit Ikea on the way home from the Dentist. Fun! (Nothing like a good incentive to go to the Dentist like a stop at Ikea on the way home.) I always love to check out their fabric selection because they have great stuff at great prices. Here’s what I found new this time. Love it! So Scandinavian looking. It’s called Snoa Flinga and is only $4.99 a yard. I didn’t have a specific project in mind (maybe throw pillows?) so I only bought a yard. Now I’m wishing I bought more and I would just quilt it as is for a cool throw.
In the mean time I used a small piece like this. Instant wall art. And so much faster than sewing something.
Here’s my other new love at Ikea. The Hemnes Linen Cabinet. I LOVE this one. Wouldn’t it look awesome with stacks of folded quilts inside?They used to have a similar piece in gold; while totally awesome on it’s own, it just wouldn’t look super against my taupe colored walls. I used to look at it and contemplate how hard it would be to buy one and paint it red. Well, thank you Ikea people for doing the work for me! Now I just need to start saving my pennies!
Finally – one thing to consider when visiting Ikea on the way home from the dentist with a numb mouth: don’t eat the frozen yogurt cone until you are safely inside your car. Or you may end up like me, checking your rear view mirror only to discover the frozen yogurt dripping down your chin of which you were totally unaware. Just a friendly warning.
