I am a loyal Ikea fan. In fact one of my first memories is of my brother jumping up and down on me in one of those ball ponds in the Ikea creche! Even my first bed came from Ikea and I carried on this tradition with my daughters. It is true that you cannot over do Ikea, things do start looking a bit bland, but I don’t think I know anyone who has not had a Billy shelf at one stage or a Forsiktig stool.
I actually get a yearning to go to Ikea at least every six months to pick up loads of stuff I don’t actually really need, so I managed to squeeze in my visit today. I could not resist this super cute little tea and coffee set. As you can see in the photo above, it was promptly put to good use.
