More Splashes of IKEA ...

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,


  1. 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

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

    Looking forward to seeing what you got. ;o)
