Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your kind and loving comments about my upcoming fabric! I think I read each comment 5 or 6 times - soaking it all in knowing how lucky I am to be surrounded with such warmth and kindness. So much is going on at my house, and I wasn’t able to answer the wonderful comments. Please forgive me. I’ve been sooo busy - that even most of my bolts are STILL wrapped in plastic. I KNOW, crazy. I had some really cool company come last week, so I had a lot to do before hand (because I’m not blessed with he cleaning gene). Probably the most exciting visitors I ever had… and I can’t talk about it until 2011. I KNOW, crazy.
So last week in prep for my company - I decided I needed to go to Ikea and redo my living room. I KNOW, crazy! But not to worry, I didn’t. But… Ikea did give me a thrill. A red and aqua thrill. I’ve been loving the red and aqua since before September 2006 (I know this because that’s when I partook in my 1st red & aqua swap), and NOW, almost 4 years later… Ikea is FINALLY on board with the color combo. I KNOW, crazy.
I did find a really cool red shelfy thingy at Ikea that I HAD TO HAVE. It was intended to go in my studio, but it didn’t work out there. I tried it in the kitchen and then twitpic’d it in it’s temp spot… and then I got tweeted that it’s a good spot. I do what my tweet peeps tell me. And plus my DS walked into the kitchen and said, “wow, perfect spot” (I KNOW, crazy).
My favorite thing to do at Ikea (besides filling up the yellow bag), is to pick out a showroom flat (notice I didn’t say apartment - because I always feel so Euro when I’m at Ikea) and pretend it’s mine. This was my flat pick - my Mo Faux Home - I’m gaga over the navy/pink/red/white combo. Ga. Ga.
Here’s the living room - I love the pink club chair (bottom left, just barely). Perfect to have *Secret Society of Something meetings in. Jona is bringing cheesecake, and Mary is bringing her specialty. Anyone else want to bring a snack?
*So secret - it’s not even been established yet. I KNOW, crazy. No membership dues, no business meetings, no blech… just food, fun, sewing, crafting and friends. Some day - so be ready!
