What's yellow and blue and the size of two football fields?
I'll give you another clue, there's at least one in almost every country
... (except New Zealand)
We've now come across far too many things that really would be quite handy to have.
For example, a rolling pin, an electric screwdriver,
something to organize the shoes in our hallway
and 100 more candles to light up our evenings.
There was another reason I went there today,
hopefully I'll be able to share the good news within a couple of weeks ;)
What I really like about Ikea is that
(aside from having every useful thing under the sun for a very good price,)
I find it to be a perfect compliment to my loppis (second hand) obsession.
I've had a couple of lamp bases floating around
not knowing what to do with themselves for far too long.
Today I finally managed to find just what I was looking for!
Plus, the answer was much cheaper than all the parts combined
if I ever got around to actually making the shades for them.
It's all about the mixing and matching... making it your own.
Taking a little bit of this, and adding it to that!
Now I'm going to organize my shoes :)
