Back to the source
Delighted to report that the Dala horse cake tin I nabbed in my inaugural IKEA visit has finally galloped its way to the intended destination in Joburg: arriving at the source of my love of all things Swedish, just in time for a birthday.
So pleased it arrived safely, Monica, and happy birthday, Jörgen!
That was such a clever composite picture Heather! Lovely to give that surprise to M&J of being on your blog – they will be delighted, I’m sure.
This just reminded me – I too have suffered from severe (seriously, unflatteringly severe) IKEA envy over the years, & when I saw your ‘I wish we had IKEA’ teatowels at neighbourgoods thought they were great, so funny (when I FInally went to IKEA for the first time a few months back & was wandering around bewilderedly, I thought of you 🙂 so (the point), YAY! glad you got to go too!
It was awesome.
My envy is a little bit worse now though… Damn baggage allowances.
Ah, that curious South African disease of IKEA envy. What can we do but dream 🙂 xx
