saturday night IKEA trip.

Holy. Cow. 
Delicious eye furni-candy, frosted with strangely low prices... 
Until now, my home has been furnished by thrift, craigslist and alley scores but, i dont know, i'm feeling  bit twitterpated, i must admit.

Just in time for my complete house cleanse, inspired by Simplicity Parenting , and carried out with help from a book called Organized Simplicity..  
Seems to be a theme here, eh?
Haha! Carried out, I suppose that would imply that i am finished with this purge, well not quite. but I have done enough to justify (to myself) a bit of  ikea finishing touch on a sweet, newly organized space, Sergei's bedroom.  He's sleeping in there now, so I cant take a pic, but lets just say, I got rid of 3 large garbage bags stuffed to the brim with toys, baby blankets, dress up excess, etc... And sold a large amount of Vintage golden books in order make ikea fundage a lot less painful.  In fact, it didn't hurt a bit.  Unless you count the heartache i felt when i had to leave because they were closing.
  I'll snap some shots tomorrow, for now i share what i splurged on.

For his bed:

For his brain:

For his floor:

Sergei's room is the coldest in the house in the winter, so I think with this and the help of a space heater we'll be golden.
I got them matching giant and tiny carrot softies.  How was i supposed to resist? seriously.

Not sure why I am feeling the need to share this with the entire world, guess I'm just that excited.

  1. LOVE that rug!!! I've really been wanting to get an old sheepskin rug for the baby's room but 1. is seems kinda mean and 2. I cannot justify spending that kind of money....

    I saw something the other day and I could so see this in your home. Get some old tweed jackets from GoodWill or thrift and cut them up for a quilt! They come out so awesome!!! The second I saw that idea I thought of you. I'm really tempted to make one for Brad.
