More Splashes of IKEA ...

Pin It!
Just thought I'd share another one of my IKEA finds!  As I've mentioned before, they have such great textiles at incredibly reasonable prices.  When I spied these stainless plant pots, I knew I had to have one ... okay, maybe three(!):


And, of course, I had to have something to put in them ... that's when three of these little cuties jumped on in my cart, too:


I added them to the bookcase in our sitting room. Here they are ... all lined up like little soldiers:


Enjoying the element it adds:


Annnnd, in other news, a large box finally arrived today ... let me just say that my jaw started hurting the minute I opened it, as I've clearly bitten off more than I can chew !!  I hope I get to show it to you within the next YEAR  ... O.M.G. !!


Have a great day,




Pin It!

Love it Becca!! It adds the perfect touch to the bookcase.

I bet I know what you got. GIRL, tell the truth, did you get your chandelier with BLING? A chandelier that you have to piece together? Ok, I am dying to know.

Thanks for sharing! I need to find an IKEA around here. XO ~Liz

I agree with, Liz. It must be a pretty blingy chandelier!

Looking forward to seeing what you got. ;o)

Oh I love those little pots, they would look great with my new burlap table runner ;-) might have to make a trip to Ikea soon!
What's in the box? looks like a chandelier, goodness I've just ordered one but never thought I might actually have to put it together? I hope mine comes already assembled!

Can't wait to see that chandy once it's done! They only take about two hours to put together! Good Luck!

Love the sparkle that your new Ikea finds add to the room! You got a new bling bling chandy... didn't you? I bet it's spectacular. Isn't it? Please don't keep up in the dark (bad pun) too long on your new treasure!

Good prices and good quality too.
