As mentioned in an earlier post I trekked off to Renton over the week end to visit an Ikea outlet. What a fascinating store! Set up in "areas" of the home (living room, dining room, kitchen) it is chock-a-block full of creative, sturdy and affordable ideas for decorating and furnishing small spaces in an affordable fashion. Perfect for folks in urban areas everywhere. Equally fascinating to the interesting color and design was the diverse polutation of shoppers. I heard English spoken about half the time. People seemed to be from "everywhere".
I found just what I needed at a reasonable cost - amazing to find a well made slip cover for a love seat for under $50 - change the look without changing the entire piece of furniture!
By the way, it is cool here this morning...might even turn the heat on for a few minutes. Tomorrow night it will be in the 40's - summer is beginning to slip away from us! It remains cloudy and rainy...the lawn looks like a jungle.
