Fabulous Finds - ... At IKEA?

Okay, let's get one thing straight before I have an inbox full of hate mail: I like IKEA. I really do. I just don't find I'm drawn to as much of their things anymore. I can appreciate the fact that you can find stylish items that are budget and environmentally friendly. I just like older pieces with a little more character, that's all. But, this past week, I made a trip out to buy some curtain panels (a great selection for cheap prices) and to see the new collections. I was actually very surprised when I found these three items below. They have such a vintage feel to them and they were so cheap!! I was actually very very excited to share them with you!
Pretty glassware with a little etched bud.

Floursack tea towels with red stripe - very French Country!
$0.49 (I know !!!)

White and beige linen material - great for sewing crafts!


  1. By the way, I was so excited about the material because just days before I was in Fabric Land looking at linen for some throw pillows I'm making and it was $26.99/mtr.!! This was so cheap compared to it, and, it's way thicker which is more ideal for the things I use it for!

  2. I love Ikea too...when I lived in California I loved to frequent it...although now I live about 5 hours from one...I sure miss that place.
