ampersands and ikea

It's funny how we never realized how much of our furniture was not actually ours until we moved. 

So, we went to Ikea. Problem solved. 

We got some bookshelves (desperately needed. I adore being surrounded by books, but they were accumulating in unsightly piles and felt neglected.) & this sweet, super comfy grey chair. 



I love ampersands. And letters. And books, did I mention that one?


oh, hey... & a kitty.




p.s. Here's a treat for your ears.

Ingrid Michaelson, I've loved you since boys and girls.

Love IKEA. The closest is just under two hours, so we have to make it an all day trip when we go. Love the chair! And that sweet pillow!

Jess said...

It's the same for us but I love making a sort of grown up field trip out of it :)

You can tell you're a talented photographer because you can make the most simple pictures look so beautiful :-)
