The need for Swed
That is right, I need an Ikea*.
Why do you ask?
#1- well constructed, solid wood furniture that doesn't break the bank.
#2- wonderfully whimsical children's textiles (like the ones on Madeline's new toddler bed)
#3- the desire to not spend hours in the car and tons of $$ on gas to get to Chicago. (although my girl trip in November (where I took the above photo) was awesome and I would be doing it again in the Fall if it weren't for #2's impending arrival!!)
#5- two words: Swedish meatballs
#6- three words: shrimp on toast
#7- inexpensive frames and artwork that are actually stylish
#8- curtains I would actually hang in my house (and can actually afford)
#9- If you read these comments, specifically the J-teams, that is reason #9
#10- did I mention this chair?
This top ten list only scratches the surface. I didn't mention this, this OR this!
There are have been many rumors that the STL area is getting an Ikea. Unfortunately they are just rumors. I wonder what I would have to do to get an Ikea here... I can be pretty persuasive. If only I could get Anna to actually listen to me.
*Don't know what Ikea is? Shame on you, and go here to educate yourself in the wonder that is this Swedish retail sensation!
