Great Stuff @ IKEA

First of all, a great big thanks to all of you who left me birthday wishes and those of you who sent me positive vibes.  I had a wonderful birthday, and my day was relaxing and wonderful.  I ended my night here.

I love this place.  It's not a culinary delight, and there's not exotic, but I still love it.  It's the place I always go when one of my best friend's comes in from California, and we peruse the menu and plan our selection in advance.  Since I'm a chocolate lover, I have to admit that the specialty chocolate fondue is my favorite part.  Strawberries, bananas, brownies, rice krispy treats, and pound cake???  Yes, please!!!  I called myself taking a photo when everything was at the table, but I got too excited and forgot, so all you get is this.

If you're wondering if it was good, it was.  Trust me.  A happy birthday indeed!  On to other stuff . . . 

Here's a photo filled look at some of the great new things I spotted in Ikea the other day.  It's been forever since I've been there, but it didn't disappoint!

LOVE THIS.  Perfect colors, and only $199.  It's huge, too.

Love this one, too. Modern, with the perfect arial view.  This would look especially great in a loft space.

Super comfortable & sturdy.  Would look amazing in a glossy black with a custom cushion.  It rocks (literally).

This comes in yellow and black, but the yellow is currently on sale.  It's not new, but it's still a love.  Great the legs, great color.

Cute small desk, just waiting for the right color!

I have loved this cabinet forever--great hardware, and the trim on top makes it look very "un-Ikea".  Wish I had somewhere to put it.

Set of woven baskets that are perfect for an office, bedroom, living room, or bathroom.

I've seen some great variations of this mirror, and I'm itching to get my hands on one to try an idea out.  Again, this isn't new, but it's still got staying power.

Love these for a bathroom, entry, dining room, or office (also great in another color).

Sexy.

Love this print.

Found any new Ikea loves lately????
