spring ikea trip

i like meself a good trip to ikea, yes i do!



we are fortunate to live fairly close to one, but it is still far enough away that when we do go, it's a bit of a treat.  maybe not so much for the hubs, but for me, it definitely is!
i was on a mission to get pantry organizing containers and terracotta plant pots, and may i just say---

mission accomplished!


only $5.99 for this terracotta pot!


 stay tuned for some nifty projects with these bad boys!

here are a couple of things i'd like to get in the future

bunk beds
i just like how the one bunk is on the floor and they aren't super tall (in case of falling out).  i can see bunk beds in our future if we don't get a bigger house.

kitchen hutch
i'd love a hutch something like this, (but maybe with a more antiqued feel) in my kitchen someday.... oh the pretty dishes i could display..........sigh

lots of sleeping from this guy




keeping track of what we bought :)

she's too busy saying, "can i see (the camera's picture)?" to bother smiling for the actual photo



goodbye for now, ikea, my love.................until next time!


why do you love ikea?  what have you recently bought that brightens your day?

Hi Andi! Oh how I Looooooooove Ikea!! I can't get enough of their frames!!

Also - I just read through the posts about your dear son's surgeries. Oh, how my heart reaches out to you!! I'm sure that was an incredibly trying time when you had to live out your faith like never before! God Bless your sweet family! :)

And per your question about my camera.... I use a Canon Rebel XS. I absolutely love it! It's one of the more affordable options among the DSLR's. I would highly recommend it for beginners/amateurs since that is exactly what I am. :) I have had it for almost 2 years and have found it to be a really great and easy to use camera. I've been studying up and learning tons about all the settings which helps maximize it's potential.

If you decide to get one, you won't regret it!
