I like it too!  I love it when people put their Christmas trees in front of a window.  it looks so beautiful from the outside.  Thanks Kelda!

Your tree is absolutely stunning, Kelda. I especially love the pics from outside, looking in. I felt like I was the little match girl  ;)  standing outside in the cold winter snow,  peering through the window into your lovely, warm, inviting home.  :D

Thankyou guys!  :)

Kelda, I love your dining chairs.  :)


And Clarissa - the chairs (& table) are from Ikea!

That's amazing, that's what I wondered.  IKEA is really universal.  I could go buy the same chairs here probably.  That would be a fun Brokie connection.

There's a big Ikea Superstore not far from me, here in Sydney. They have lots of lovely stuff, little and large, to tempt the dollars out of your wallet. Last time I was there, I found some really nice bookends.   :D

Tell me, do the Ikea stores overseas have the same layout as those in Oz? That is, you enter via one door and follow a meandering, on-way traffic flow that takes you through all the various departments, until you come to the cash registers near the exit door, where there's a strategically place coffee shop, to sit and unwind following your shopping expedition.

The closest IKEA to me is in Chicago, Kerry. They've been talking about building some here, but so far we only have a bunch of Wal-Marts and Meijers. Oh, and K-Mart and Target. :P

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Exactly. I find it kind of confusing and disorienting. I've gotten a few good buys there, and a few that didn't work out so well. But it's worth a gamble when they're that cheap. The coffee shop has good food, too!

We have K-Mart, Target and Big W, but not Wal-Mart and Meijers. At the more elite, top end of the market, we have David Jones and Myer. I hope you get an Ikea store in Indianapolis soon, David. Chicago is a loooong way to drive, even when you red-line it!  ;D
