Ideas from Ikea

I had my first trip to Ikea yesterday and I loved it!   I came out with so many ideas.  I have been trying to decide where to put some of my coffee cups and saw this.  I had shelves in all of my windows in the house I had before this one so I have tons of shelves in storage.  The shelves I have are all stained brown so a little white paint could spruce them right up.  

So I am thinking a trip to the storage unit is in my near future to retrieve some shelves.

I really like the cluster of white lights.  So light and airy.  I am thinking of doing something like this in my guest room this summer.

This is so pretty.  I want to keep this idea for my cabin.  

Can you tell I have a love of light fixtures?

I can't wait to go back.  It is about an hour and a half trip from where I live so it is not in a town that I get to go to often.

I also found a down comforter that Mr. Fix-It offered to buy us.  My daughter and her fiancée will be going that way on Friday and I am sending her by to pick it up for me.  I can't wait to snuggle under it on some of the cold Southern nights we have been having here lately.


  1. Oh wow, I am so jealous! I've never been to IKEA. The closest one is about 4 hours from me. I've been trying to convince my hubby that it would be a fun daytrip! I can't wait to see your cupholder shelves, very cute idea!

  2. Like Ashley, we have to drive close to 4 hours to go to IKEA but I love it! Like you said, so many ideas!
    Your snow pictures are gorgeous and I LOVE your driveway too! One of these days I'd love to be able to drive down a driveway like yours to a hidden home in the trees! Beautiful!
    Have a blessed New Year!
