Two weekends ago my family made a run to Ikea. And by "run" I mean we drove 2 hours to the nearest Ikea store.
We didn't have much that we needed to buy. We just enjoy going about twice a year and seeing what's new in the store.
This trip we bought a couple lamps for the basement. A side table and some throw pillows as well. But my favorite thing we bought were these colored pencils for the boys.
They are absolutely GREAT! They are thicker than the Crayola pencils and they look so cool and natural.
I'm thinking I may have to make another Ikea "run" very soon and get some of these guys for myself. Ooo!...and that giant blank and white photo of Paris. It would look PERFECT above the couch in the basement. Ooo!...and another side table. (I have no clue why we didn't just get 2 when we were there the last time) Ooo!...and I want 2 of those new gray/white rugs that they sell for just $19.99 for the upcoming dining room makeover. And my husband wonders why I can't just go to the store and buy colored pencils...
