Just a reminder of something I mentioned last week, during August there will be Five On Friday, it will be on holiday for the month. I will remind you when it is the last week and when we will return again in September. Of course you can still share five things on Friday, but there will not be a link up.
This week I have finished two crochet projects, had a great time photographing the garden - as you will have seen over the last three days. Thank you for your lovely comments about the garden, I am glad you enjoyed it. You are all so very kind!
The winners of the blogaversary giveaway were drawn and notified and the prizes have all gone out to the winners. Congratulations to you all! Thank you to everyone who took part.
I have cut fabric for some new bags, fiddled with making some more progress keepers, just for me, and no doubt done countless other things too.
A new Ikea store opened not too far from us this week. For a long time a friend and I had planned to go and visit on the opening day, but sadly my friend was unavailable after our months of waiting. So instead I went to visit with Hubby. I didn't buy much. Some tissue paper in pretty colours for wrapping parcels! Last of the big spenders. I am sure I will go back again though.
My five today are scenes from the new Ikea.
The entrance way. When we came out there was a large red heart with legs dancing around, but sadly it wasn't there when I took this photo! You missed quite a sight!
It seems that macramé is making a comeback. It must be of it is in Ikea? I am not sure I have anywhere in our home to hang one of these...
On the other hand if I had space and thought I could get away with these mixed tiles I would certainly go for it. I love this sort of tapestry look.
The obligatory wheeled cart for many a crafter. The Raskog. Again, I don't have space for one, but I would love one and I can certainly see the attraction. It is a great design, moves well and has great space!
I just had to take a photo of this table of domes. Domes are a point of conversation about a shared memory between Hubby and I. When we were on our honeymoon at dinner one night the plates appeared covered with domes. We had ordered prawn linguine. What arrived under the dome? Four prawns and one forkful of pasta. That was it! Our entire dinner. We are very suspicious of plates covered with domes!
So that is my tour of the new shop. I wasn't sponsored to write this, they don't know I exist! But as I couldn't share this visit with my real life friend I thought I would share it with you in this way. Hope you liked it!
Plans for the weekend? I don't know yet. Deadheading in the garden if it is dry and not too too hot. Crochet as always, perhaps some bag making, or reading. I am reading a very interesting book about the Mitford sisters which I would love to just sit and read and I thinking that I may manage some reading time this weekend which would be lovely.
What are you up to this weekend? Do let me know! Whatever it is I hope you enjoy it and have fun.
Thank you for taking part in in Five On Friday, for visiting me and leaving a comment, for visiting other participants and leaving them comments and for writing and sharing your own posts. It just wouldn't be the same without you!
