Shopping and treats

I went shopping yesterday with my friend Elaine of Laineybcrafts . We went to that large Swedish everything store - we spent the day at Ikea.
There were 2 things on my shopping list, some 'ribba' box frames and some doors and drawers for my shelving unit.
Pictures are a bit dull because its a dull grey day-


 I had heard on the grapevine that they were discontinuing the box frames but I can assure you Leeds branch had loads. They are the cheapest and better quality than other 'cheap' brands locally.


The doors and drawers were another matter. I have 3 cubby holes on my unit where I can't find anything and I thought a door for one then I could just shut it away and at some date in the distant future I would get rid of everything in there 'coz I haven't used it .....well maybe, and the other two I wanted to sort out into drawers so its easier to find the googly eyes etc without everything falling out onto the floor.

However Ikea have got me again, I wanted 'green' but they only had red or white drawers, no green doors either they were out of stock. I bought a red set of drawers but not sure how long I will keep them.

On a happier note whilst we were out we thought we had better check out Home (Bargains) well spotted Julie Kettlewell, should say Home Sense!  I rarely buy in here I just dream of buying lots, but today I bought impulsively!
 I came home with this fabulous display shelf. The metal heart and bird cage with pegs have gone and this has replaced it. What do you think?
