~Ikea goodies giveaway~


Hello friends,

I had a little visit to Ikea recently, I know some of you will be jealous and so I am hesitant to confess that I don’t go very often {mostly because Ikea styling is generally too new and contemporary for my preferred decor style}.

Having said that, they have some really good basics and accessories that I like to pick up, and there is always something new to see. My everyday dinnerware is from Ikea, I always pick up some paper napkins, affordable pillow inserts, check out the fabric and bring home a pack of cinnamon buns for the kids! I am also in love with one of their mirrors, but that will have to wait…

I have been planning to make more white pillow covers for my sofa, so I was very happy to find these hanging instore. 


If you are looking for a basic white pillow cover these are a great buy, they are clean white, a nice heavy fabric with a little texture and zip closure and all for $8.99 each (Canadian $, so probably less in US Ikea). They fit a 20x20” insert.


Here’s a close up of the texture in my yummy vintage cart.


So let’s get to the giveaway! Since it is the month of love and I was thinking about you all while I was there shopping, I picked up a couple things for you tooSmile


So here we go:


You will have seen all over blogland the classic Ikea enamelware pitcher, it is probably the most used pitcher in my house, I always have it out and usually filled with flowers. 

I was so delighted to find the matching baby pitcher in store, isn’t it cute!


This pretty floral fabric bread basket was a surprise find, wouldn’t it be pretty for a summer picnic. If you look on the label you see how it folds out into a bread basket. My local Ikea sold out of these real quick.


and I'm gonna add a pack of pink cocktail napkins, yup, we’ve got some pink going on here today it appears! Of course there will be a couple of surprises too, what's a giveaway without a few surprises!

IKEA isn't that close to me so I have only been there twice. And for me, too, it is a little modern but I always find something to bring home since the prices are so fabulous!!

Thanks for having such a great giveaway! I am a follower! :)

Tammy of {Tattered and Timeless} said...

Oh I need to hit up my Ikea also..I need pillow inserts. Isn't it amazing how expensive an insert is at the fabric store..robbery I say. And you are right it can't be a complete trip without the cinnamon buns..haha.
Love all that you picked up. You are making me want to go visit mine even though it is 2.5 hours away.

Polly said...

You're so lucky.....a trip to IKEA! Ours is 2 hours away, so I don't get to go very often!! That bread box is certainly very cute!!

Hubby and I were just saying we are are overdue for an Ikea trip...we live in the north and don't travel much until the weather improves. I never think to buy those I want one for flowers too and the basket liner must be a new item. I havent' seen it and its adorable.
