My recent trip to Ikea

Two weekends ago, my family went to Ikea and Concord Mills for a shopping trip. Because Ikea is about a three hour drive for us, we don't go often. We try to keep a list of things we might want to buy when we do go again. There were many things I wanted, but I'm watching our spending, so I only made a few purchases.

Here are some things I bought:

Remember my decorating conundrum in the guest bath? I couldn't figure out what I wanted to put on this shelf with the mason jars. This pretty little tea light holder is working out nicely.

I also picked up some cute galvanized buckets and faux boxwood to create a no-fuss centerpiece for our new table. 

I also got these really cute pitchers to put my kitchen utensils in. They look so cute in our kitchen! 

I am really enjoying all of these neat things we got- I am in the process of picking out some other things I want to buy in the future.  Thanks for reading!

  1. Your new purchases are perfect! We used to live 4 hours from IKEA, but now we are less than 30 minutes away....I know, right! I still keep a list going for IKEA. I've been eyeing those cute pitchers for some time now, but have yet to pull the trigger. They look so cute in your kitchen. I adore that store for their variety of faux greenery and have several different ones that I can use here and there. Thanks for sharing your finds!

  2. I'm loving their faux boxwood! I have some in my office, too :) Thanks for stopping by!
