A Fabulous Day…..

For the first time in a long time, I have taken time out for me.  Shane and I went by train to IKEA in Richmond today.  I feel it is time to rid my craftroom of second hand furniture, bit by bit, and create a space that is to be my sanctuary.  What better place to go for storage solutions than IKEA.

We took the train from Geelong to Southern Cross Station and went straight to our favourite coffee shop, Gloria Jeans.  Had a yummy Hot Mocha!!!!  Great start to the day and it certainly gives flagging energy levels a boost.  Have had a very busy week at work.  We then caught the 109 tram in Collins street to take us out to Richmond.  It has been a very nice sunny day today and it was very pleasant to sit on the tram and watch the world go by.

I just love IKEA.  Have I told you this before?  I love to spend time browsing around all their displays and day dreaming.  Ooh, look at this, look at that.  It was endless.  Time to go and have lunch in the restaurant.  Man do they know how to lay out a store.  By the time you are finished looking at the displays you are more than ready for lunch.  What’s a girl to have for lunch whilst there?  Why swedish meatballs of course!!!  Scrumptious.  Tanked up again and time to hit the market hall to find all the stuff I wanted.  Came home with some boxes, a shelf and a new waste paper bin.  BUT, my big purchase, which will be delivered on Tuesday afternoon, a beautiful new white bookcase.  It is called LIATORP.  If you want to view it either go to their online catalogue or pick up their catalogue and it is on page 84.  Very Martha Stewart like LOL.  I can’t wait to organise my stamp sets into this bookcase and other items.

This will be a work in progress that’s for sure.  As I change my furniture over, my old stuff is going to hubby’s shed.  So it won’t be wasted and he is happy to have it.  He already has some of the same stuff.  So a perfect solution me thinks )

Ok, well I am bushed.  Will come back over the weekend and share some more with you all.

Keep Smiling and Stamping,

Maggie
