i scored at Ikea last weekend. i went in to buy a Jute rug and ended up finding some lovely buys for the homestead. i'm a sucker for cool design and this pepper grinder caught my eye and wouldn't let it back. it works like a champ and looks great too. score #1.
Spraka Pepper Grinder
oh yeah, i also went to try and find a frame that fit a prints i've had rolled up in a tube for too too long. Ikea tends to have weird sized frames but this visit produced one that worked. score #2
And then i saw it.... THE LAMP. VÄVA! or Vava-voom as i'd like to call it. this hanging, woven beauty is CALLING MY NAME...but i just don't know where to put it. i think i stood staring at it for longer than i should have. i was mesmerized. i held myself back from purchasing something that didn't have a home, but the four stacked boxes left in this store made me a bit nervous. "what if they're not available when i come back?" "what if i walk away from this and never find it again?!" (it IS on the rare side in the Ikea world) well i maned up walked away but not after taking some fan photos on my Storm.
and last but not least came the jute rug, TÅRNBY as they like to call it in the sweedish warehouse. i opted for the largest size and it's a gem in the bedroom. score #3.
