Wishing for IKEA


The fabulous Heather of SkinnyLaminx sent me this tea towel with the design 'I wish we had Ikea'. I think Heather really, really misses not having Ikea in South Africa were she lives... But what would have happened if you did have Ikea, Heather? Would we have had the fortune of enjoying this pattern then? ;-)

Check out Heather's Etsy shop for more great items.

FYI, the rest of the artifacts in this picture are of course – Ikea.

I'd be sad if I moved too far away from my Ikea, too!

We don't have Ikea in New Zealand either, so I totally feel her pain. People actually get on a plane and fly to Sydney, the nearest one, to get their fix. I think I need one of those tea towels!

Wow, your timing (and the post office's) is so brilliant - I just listed those teatowels in my shop yesterday!

Ooh, and you've made me green with envy - two of those real-life things you have are just drawings on a tea towel to me...

I'm so overdue a trip to ikea. Great post - love the tea towel! And i'd not discovered those gorgeous white/wood cannisters that i need to have :)

I love Skinny Laminx, Heather's designs are so cool! My closest Ikea is 3 hours away and is always so mobbed with people that my fiance gets a little claustrophobic. I suppose I'll have to leave him behind next time in order to enjoy a liesurely shopping trip!

Guess I should feel guilty that I do live so close to an ikea and have taken a vow (to try and) not to buy stuff from them? I guess it's like anything you can have too much of one thing.

Love the tea towel though :)
