{A Trip to IKEA }

I went to IKEA this morning with Traci to get some shelves for her. We didn't find the shelves she needed but, of course, I found some things for me. I've been searching for a basket weaved pot for my faux peonies {faux just sounds better than fake, doesn't it? :)}. This one was just right!

And, I was so excited when I found a duvet cover that had a print that was pretty close to what I had envisioned for curtains in my bedroom. I took down the white sheets that were our temporary curtains & hung up the duvets. I love them!
They were exactly the look that I wanted & they are the perfect length! Yay!
It's so fun to see the room coming together. My next project is the artwork for above the bed. There was no rain this weekend & today, so I was FINALLY able to get the supplies for it. And, yes, I will melt in the rain. That's why I live in California. :)

Gotta love IKEA. Your basket of blooms looks lovely, not faux at all. Your room is coming together so nicely. I'm loving the layers of neutral colours.

Loving how your room is coming together. I can't wait to see your fabulous artwork! I love IKEA too, and so does Owen...he's always asking if we can go there so he can play in the little kids club!

Whew, I thought I was the only one who used blankets and sheets as curtains. They're so easy to put up!

Love the curtains! Soon you will have your dream room. Can't wait to see it in person.
