When I went over to Placerville, Lori and I finally made a trip to Ikea in West Sacramento! She and Tina had been there before; I never had.
Did I love it? Come on.....you KNOW I did!
Lots of color everywhere - my favorite thing. Naturally, I took pictures:
A stop for a yummy and inexpensive lunch:
And more fabrics:
Because taking pictures of them seemed to be what I most enjoyed!
I wish I could have brought home something from the huge warehouse floor:
Oh, like maybe some bookcases like these, for instance:
But they wouldn't fit in the car, so instead I got this great expandable pot lid rack- perfect for holding my platters in the cupboard (that lovely one you see was a thrift store find the day before), some bed risers, and the least expensive magazine holder files I have EVER found anyplace. Magazine hoarders can never have too many of these, you understand:
And Lori took home some of their delicious Lingonberry Preserves, which we thoroughly enjoyed on our toast the next morning!
But my favorite thing in the whole place?? Well, hands down, the winner was this fabric!
It's HEIDI fabric!
I don't care what they call it, I'm calling it Heidi Fabric. Goats, an alpine snow-capped mountain, little red and green mountain cabins, trees, flowers, pine cones!
Heidi - for SURE.
