My IKEA Loot

IKEA_Loot02framed 

I’ve been hitting IKEA for the past two days buying new furniture mostly but also looting the place for new props and fabrics. It was my lucky day actually as IKEA is having it’s midsummer sales and there were so many things on sale! Still it’s amazing how much a girl can spend when left alone at IKEA. My credit card was on fire! Here’s a sneak peak of a few of the things I bought!

I am now looking forward to using all these wonderful and colorful dishes, bowls and fabric. In the meantime here’s wishing you a happy Friday!

Hugs!

  1. Love them all Meeta! I got a pretty plate at Ikea which I bubble wrapped and carried in my hand with a ramekins from the States. Family was looking expectantly at the bag thinking it'd be full of chocolates, but all it had was crockery!
