Vitaminer at Ikea

Have you seen this gorgeous range of fabrics and accessories at Ikea? I love the colours and the patterns. In fact, I am considering heading there this afternoon to pick up this blanket, to snuggle under in this chilly weather we have been having. Which I am loving, by the way!And the fabrics are only $14.99 for 1.2 x 3m. Very reasonable! Those hearts would make a cute headboard, especially if it was button tufted with a range of colourful buttons! I'm not sure my husband would go for it, but maybe for a child one day! In the mean time, I may have to make do with a cushion in my living room!

And these fun curtains! Not sure where I could hang them, but I think they would bring some cheer to your day!
They are hidden away in the children's fabric department! I would love to use them in my home...and I don't have any children (with the exception of my furchild of course!)

I know I have been MIA for a little while - I have been super busy with work, renos, social and family commitments. I do have some new pics for you...but not today.

It doesn't feel right to share how wonderful my home is when I have some very dear friends who are doing it tough...all the time. I am heading out for a very brief catch up with one of them later this evening, and it's all I can think about right now. I promise that when (not if, but when) they find a home for themselves and their precious daughter (Hope!), I will be ringing and writing every 'we come and fix up your house and garden in a weekend to help make your life a teensy bit easier' show, to go and visit them, and do everything they can.

Some people out there have a really rough life, through no doing of their own, and I remind all of you to hug your children, your partner, your friends and your family, and tell them you love them. And ring someone you know, who might be struggling a bit at the moment, to remind them you are there, and you love them.
