I love Ikea.
I don't go there often enough but every time I do I'm so happy with the deals I find there.
I went this weekend to buy a kid's table and chairs for outside.
I wasn't happy with the ones at Toys R Us and the Pottery Barn ones are awesome but ridiculously priced.
So Ikea I went.
Here's what I found...
It's plastic, it's durable, and the colors are nice and bright.
Of course I didn't just shop the kids section, I had to make my way through the whole store.
Which then led me to wanting a total remodel of our kitchen.
On second thought maybe I shouldn't have gone through the entire store, but I'm glad I did because I couldn't pass up some great deals.
Storage Tins: $2.99 (for all 3!)
I have no idea what I'm going to use them for, but I love the design and colors, so I couldn't leave them behind.
Ice Cream Sand Toys: $2.99
Mango Scented Candle: $1.99
Seriously, I can't pass up a toy that makes dessert, plus we need new sand toys.
And this candle makes me want to lay in hammock on a tropical beach.
I can dream.
I needed a new pot for my plant and this was just the right size.
And for that cheap price I had to get it.
I also got some practical stuff for the house but nothing fancy and fun to show.
Bottom line, go to Ikea and get yourself some fun stuff on the cheap.
I have an obsession with bowls.
New, old, expensive, cheap.
You name it, I love them.
Ask my husband, our cupboards are full of them.
What I don't have is the primary colored set of Pyrex mixing bowls...until now.
My sister found a set at a garage sale this weekend and bought them for me.
Do you see that price tag? Only 30 bucks!
I saw the same set, in just about the same condition a few days ago for $55.
Not too bad.
I'm super excited to add these to my growing collection.
Now, if only I could figure out where to put them.
