Ikea Finds

Hello & Happy Friday!

Thank you for your sweet comments about the chocolate cupcakes, it's nice to hear from readers so keep them coming : )

Today I wanted to share two fab finds I (I say I but really I mean my mum!) from Ikea clearance. If you're a regular reader you'll know I'm always banging on about Ikea something or other. I'm lucky enough to have one 20 minutes drive away so we are always there.

I love the clearance corner and have snapped up some decent fabric there in the past for £1...not bad. My mum spotted this big blue candle lantern for the garden for £1. It had some sticky residue from a sticker but apart from that it was perfect..for £1!

It's perfect on the table in the evening whilst having a BBQ.

I was jealous...I wish I saw it first! It would have gone in our 'one day' box of goodies for our first home.

My mum also spotted this milk churn copy on the normal shelves. It had another smaller one inside...making it a steal for £3!

 It's quite rustic looking so goes fairly well with cut sunflowers.

If you're in Ikea over the weekend keep an eye out for seasonal clearance items...it's worth it!

What are your plans for the weekend? I'm getting my hair cut (nothing too drastic) and am hoping to make some Chinese Spring Rolls..nom nom nom : P Nothing really exciting.

  4. Hi Laura,

    Wow..that's a huge jump in price! I don't understand how they can charge different amounts to different countries for the same item?

  5. Oh, you are so lucky to have an IKEA 20 minutes away! The nearest one to me is 2 hours. :) LOVE the milk jug. What great finds!

    Hope you had fun getting your hair done. :)

    P.S. Thank you for your very sweet comments on my blog and about Cricket. Your comments always make my day! Thanks friend!!!


  6. I bought 8 of these for my wedding but needed 9 and have since hunted high and low for another set with no joy! I think they are just so sweet and look fabulous with any kind of flower! Truly a fabulous find!
