Field Trip :: Ikea!

So my girl Raygan and I have both been curious about the Ikea phenomenon, especially since we got our very own store....well, a good 45 minutes away, but nevertheless it's "ours." Let's take a peek at the chronicles of our adventures:

I wasn't there but 5 minutes and I was already testing out chairs. This one definitely passed the lounge test, and at only $250, what a steal!

What a pretty dresser, just waiting to be accessorized and jazzed up with a colorful family of sewn goodies!

Gorgeous lady in a gorgeous kitchen! I simply adore the white cabinets, and I will have it be known that a white kitchen is my dream. It's the perfect backdrop for colorful Heather Bailey dishtowels, aprons, oven mitts, and more! My head is spinning with future possibilities.

Cute gallery idea! I love the repeat of the same print, a la Andy Warhol, but it certainly has potential for a great multi-image gallery. Perhaps a showcase of favorite completed quilts or other projects? Maybe my hexie ladies could make some 12" hexies to fill up those frames?!!! Did I just blow your mind with that suggestion, because I know I'm thinking about it!

Hmm, just me being childish with a toilet brush. I like me some potty jokes. My nephews pretty much love me.

What IS with the bathroom people being so stiff and outliney? We decided to liven them up a bit.

Ok, now am I the only one who glanced at this and saw a mom being told to throw her child on the ground? No? Just me? Did I misinterpret the illustrated instructions? Oh well.

My lady Raygan was very pleased with Ikea's tree-hugging mentality. Those Swedes...first they invent Swedish Fish candy and now this. I knew I liked them.

Seriously?! All the shopping carts have those directional wheelies on all 4 wheels!!! The stupid thing kept going diagonally! Check it out. Lots of fun.

Au revoir, Ikea...or, well, Hej da, as the case may be. We had a great time, followed all your directive arrows, and each picked up some much needed accessories. As soon as I find the elusively perfect shelves for my new jar display, I shall share with all.

Thanks for touring with us! How do you like Ikea?
