Ikea Dreaming

Well I am back from vacation.

I had a wonderful time in Nashville. Check out The Dope Librarian for a post about my trip.

Now I am just enjoying the last few weeks of summer and the last few weeks of freedom before my grad classes start at the end of the month.

I’m almost done. Staying focused!

Monday I went shopping at Ikea. I love this place. I often go to get design inspiration and dream about the fabulous kitchen that I want.

I can see it now…

Glass upper cabinets…


…and dark lower cabinets.


With a beautiful creamy countertop.


Preferably a sustainable material.

And a fabulous apron sink and beautiful facet fixtures.



One a day a reno will happen. One day.

Until than I dream and collect pieces.


I got two stem glasses to add to the two that I already have. They were $1.99 a piece. The spice jars were $3.00 for the pack of 4. The green trays are ice trays they were $1.99 each. I got two glass plates for $.99 each. I now have a total of 8. I will continue to collect these because they are simple and go well with my dishes that have designs. The salad utensils were $1.99 for the pair. The most “expensive” purchase was the tray costing $9.99. A deal nonetheless.

Shopping for little pieces like these is my favorite thing to do. Because I didn’t have dishes when I first moved, I have no problem taking opportunities to get new things. I have a ton of things that I want. Like a large wok, a dutch oven, a juicer, and a Vitamix. But I am perfectly content with getting what I want one purchase at a time. I mean I do have a 30 year mortgage. LOL! My kitchen isn’t going anywhere.

Eat well! Be well!
