So, what to do, what to do? We are going stir crazy, we stayed in and played yesterday, it isn't fair to go to playgroup and pass on the germs...... I know, IKEA!
I needed a frame for this lovely Jane Foster "Birds at Play" poster that I picked up in Habitat a few weeks ago. My daughter is itching to get busy with the felt-tips and colour it in so it's a good job it's intended for The Boy's room. The 50x70cm frames were a bit thin on the ground, so I just got this simple black one. I think it looks ok. You can see more of Jane Foster's work here - rather nice isn't it?
I managed to pick up a few other things whilst in there - it's the way they trap you into the maze-like showroom isn't it? It forces you to see and buy lots of stuff that you wouldn't otherwise. Anyway, some colourful plastic beakers, a bud vase, a second frame and a little train set (someone has a birthday coming up) found their way into my basket.
And a trip to IKEA isn't complete without a trip to the Swedish food shop. It's practically considered a crime in our family if you don't come home from IKEA armed with a couple of bags of Bilar. The Daim are for the Mr and I couldn't resist the Easter themed marshmallows.
Did you know that the Swedish for marshmallow is "skum"? It makes them sound so appealing doesn't it?!
