ikea & pier 1

so i spent my birthday out shopping.
lots of fun.
pier 1.
the container store.
crate & barrel.

since i bought mostly holiday presents.. i can't show you what i got.

so i'll show you things i want.
one day i want this bed frame...

and this bedding set.

this we would have gotten if the large one was in stock in black.

once we get it we are gonna add a bit of this...

and a bit of that.
oh and i want this for my studio.. so great for holding all my tools.

once the work week is over i'll take pics of the things i got that aren't gifts and i'll share them with you... here's to having a productive sewing weekend!!

{ikea & pier 1 are only 15 minutes down the road from me.. its dangerous.}

fyi giveaway is still open till sunday.. here


  1. I love the bed frame. I have a Pier 1 near me. I love it. I really want to go to Ikea but the closest one is a little over an hour and a half away. I can't believe I have never been.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday! Shopping is always fun. :)

    What IKEA do you go to? Ours is ALWAYS out of the Bygel cups that hang from those rails. And they don't even list them on the website anymore so I figured they quit making them. Guess not! I have a couple of the Bygel rails in my creative space and hang finished quilt tops from them. They are so cheap and I like having my quilt tops hanging to get them out of the way and to keep from getting too wrinkled (granted, I don't have many quilt tops, but it works for me). I use a rail and cups in my girls' playroom to hold their crayons and other bits. A great system! Get it while you can, especially those cups!

  3. Sounds like a fun time! Love the storage cups. Where did you see those? I might think about that for my sewing room. Do you think it could keep me more organized????

  4. looks like a great wishlist from IKEA, since there isn't one near me, I save up a list and wait until a trip to Philly. Those baskets look like something that needs to be on my list!

  5. Don't you just love Ikea! I think those little holders would be awesome for quilting supplies!

  6. I love going to Ikea! Since we have moved closer to one, Ikea is taking over my home. They do have great storage solutions.

  7. I was an assistant textile buyer for Pier 1 for seven years. I don't go in there as much since I left, but they always have great holiday decor.

    My closest Ikea is an hour and a half drive... I wonder if I should try to fit a trip in before Christmas? Hummm....

  8. That's the same bed frame I want! Although I made the mistake of going to Crate & Barrel, and spied a far more expensive version of it. Bah!

    Shopping's my idea of a good b'day too hehe Although I'm sure by the second store the hubs would be sighly very very audibly.

  9. I love Ikea and could spend hours there. Thank goodness it is an hour away from me.

  10. Looks like you had fun Julie -- happy weekend!

  11. I have an IKEA close to me too. It's dangerous.
