What mummy did...

On Chloe's first day of school Mummy was taken to Ikea and treated by Daddy.

He bought me some gorgeous funny little hippo print cotton...

Another lovely cotton covered with little sketchy type people, bunnies, ducks, frogs all going about their business...

A lovely orange striped heavy weight cotton.

This is my favourite, another heavy weight printed orange cotton canvas ...

And on the way out the door I also treated myself. For the sake of complete honest, I actually bought two bags of Dime Bars and two of the Marabou Dime chocolate bars... and a big box of ginger biscuits..... and a bag of cinnamon rolls.... and two packets of the marabou cups.... yes I'm a heffer.

And because he accidentally broke my last lampshade, he treated me to a new one.

Its embroidered with tons of flowers and bees and butterflies and I love it.

Now I'm off to pick up Chloe from her second day at school.


  1. Mmmmmmmmm fabric heaven... mmmmmmm sweet food heaven... mmm lampshade heaven... it doesn't get much better does it... except I'm hoping Mr Mousie will treat me to some socks while we are away... sad I know. But you know how much I love my socks xx

  2. Seriously? That lampshade was from Ikea? It's gorgeous!

  3. I want some of those dime bars!

  5. I am so jealous of your Ikea treasures! The closest one to us is in Seattle - about 5 hrs away. I look at the catalog and just drool. Have fun creating with that fabric! :)

  6. I am drooling over the new catelog, and looking forward to a proper look around the store again soon.

    I must say your hubby has great taste in fabric LOL!

    Also he seems to be going through an "orange" phase! Was he marching this summer?!!

  7. Gah! I can't believe I'm going to be in your spot just in a couple of days...
