It's rained all day today, so when we left work this afternoon, my husband suggested we go shopping - yes, willingly. The aim was to buy a new folding up/down/over bed for the spare room/study/my sewing room. We didn't actually find anything but we did end up in Ikea - which leads me on to my favourite thing. IKEA.
I'm sorry if it's a bit naff to like IKEA but I do. I admit that on a Saturday afternoon in early December at the store at Juncion 9 (or is it 10) on the M6, it's not the best shopping experience, but you're probably not even likely to get into the car park then. But on a Friday in october in Brno, it's a pleasure. I love all those little rooms that look so beautfiul, and the staff are in there polishing away.. Oh and those big yelllow bags! And for the price, most of the stuff in there is very good value. And they have such lovely Christmas dekkies. I love it that I don't have to think about - they are leading me around the store, telling me what I really want to buy. I love it that you go in with the intention of buying one thing, but find that there are 15 other things that you simply can't live without. But today we got in and out with only one small purchase. A real billy bargain I think
For the equivalent of just £2.75, $4.25 or Euro 3.20 I got this
1 metre of Chritmassy fabric that I hope will be the back of my Modern Christmas table runner, and the inspiration for the front.
I'm proud to stand up and say, love IKEA. Please, hop over to Quilting in my Pyjamas to check out other peoples Friday favourites
