Wishing......

While in Dallas, We went to Ikea one afternoon and I just LOVE this strore. Now to all you big city girls, understand that I don't get to go to these fun stores like Anthro and Ikea very often, or Home Goods for that matter. The closest Ikea is 5hrs away and the closest Anthro is 4 hrs away. So anytime I'm near one, I gotta go! These are a few of the things that I wanted BADLY, but my hubby had to remind me that they just would'nt fit in my suitcase. :(
The next couch I get will be something like this...... There is NOTHING that I do'nt love about this couch!

I would have to have a chair to go with the couch, and this floral beauty would have to be the one. I would need an ottoman to match of course!

Love this black frame. It looks like a mirror, but if I remember correctly, it was just a frame. Gotta have me this......


The industrial look of this candlelier is what I love most about it......



A cool linen storage thingy. What would I do with this? I have no idea, but I'm sure I could figure it out.......




I am a sucker for storage containers. I think a small square of chalkboard paint right on the front would make it even better....





Now that you have seen all of the things I could'nt have, I will show you the one thing I did get. Nothing special, just a funky wine holder. I mounted it horizontal under my kitchen cabinets.......

The best part is that next weekend, I am heading to Chicago to market and I am going to make the time, no matter what, to shop Ikea. I'll let you know how many things I come back with. And this time, I'm driving and I've got a Tahoe so LOTS of goodies will fit!! So any of you bloggers out there, (like Kasey and Amy, hint, hint), who live in the area, and want to meet up, let me know, It would be so fun!

Your trip to Dallas looks like so much fun! It's nice to have you back though :) I too LOVE Ikea!! I head over to Chicago every now and then for my Ikea fix. It's great for us that don't live so close that they package everything in small boxes, you can get so much in a vehicle! Have fun and I can't wait to see what you get.

You know what, I've never been in an Ikea!?! We've been to Chicago a million and one times but it's always about what the boys want to do: go to a Cubs' game. We never have enough time to do anything else but drive there, go to the game, and drive back. sigh. My friend and I keep talking about going to Chicago for the weekend and finding some fleamarkets so hopefully it will happen soon. (fingers crossed.)
With that, I love your picks. Especially the sofa and chandelier! How great would those look in your house! White wouldn't last a minute between the constantly shedding grey dog and cat, the messy kid, and Troy and I spilling red wine everywhere. wink, wink.
Hope all's well and I'm excited to come see the changes at your store. Enjoy Chi-town! :)

Have a wonderful time Tricia, I am a wee bit jealous that you are going to Chicago and perhaps get to hang with Kasey or Amy...can't you just drive to California? I know some great flea markets, thrift stores, antique storess?????? Maybe some day! Happy weekend~

I bought that black frame for my friend for her birthday last year. I actually turned it into a memo board with some batting, fabric, and ribbon. I am heading to Ikea tomorrow with the hubby. Kasey from LolaB's mentioned a farmhouse sink she wanted from there. It is hundreds cheaper then anywhere else I have found. I can not wait to go!
