A week ago today my daughter and I made our first visit to IKEA in Minneapolis. What fun! I think we both left with more ideas than we came with and I know I'll be back soon. We actually made a second trip back later after some time at the Mall of America for some items we forgot to pick up after seeing them in the showroom for a total of 3 trips through the checkout! My daughter is moving to a new apartment so between the two of us we covered the whole showroom and then some.
Then we spent the night with my sister who lives in St. Paul so it was nice to mix in some family time too. We made a stop at Trader Joe's on our way out of town and had a full truck of goodies to divy up between us before my daughter headed home Tuesday afternoon.
Look at that bright circle of light! My eyes are so grateful and I will be getting one for my other sewing table next trip. I think I'll pick up some extras for my next blog giveaway too.HERE. I also bought one of these cute carts (love the color!) that I thought would be handy for shared supplies between my two sewing tables.
