Indiska

Indiska is this lovely shop that I discovered recently and knowing that you also love this bazaar/boho style of things you really should go have a look. Indiska is based in Sweden and they sell all sorts of gems for the home in addition to fashion and accessories – and I can’t read Swedish but it even looks like they have a restaurant called Hurry Curry which offers catering services. I have to make sure I look for this place the next time I find myself in Stockholm because I love their quirky, colorful style, don’t you?

These are a few of my favorite things, especially the picnic blanket with the pom pom trim for a Saturday in the park. Ah, so cute!

I wonder if this Hurry Curry sign shown above is an actual poster you can purchase because I want one!

The Indiska blog is fun because they take you a bit behind-the-scenes of photo shoots, fair visits, and trends that are hot currently in Sweden. It’s only in Swedish though, unfortunately, but you can at least enjoy the links and photos which you can find here.

Happy Camera Day

I wrote about my new camera today over at Haus Maus not expecting the overwhelming amount of interest (yay!) everyone has had in my little point and shoot pal. I updated the post with all the deets on how you can buy one of these instant Fujifilm Instant Mini 7S cameras so please stop by and check it out

What's This Cuteness, You Ask?

This camera is so much fun and the business card sized photos are just too cute for projects and journaling. I can’t wait to start using it. I just unwrapped this little guy today so I’m hoping tomorrow will be a sunny day so I can find some willing flowers to pose for me.

IKEA PS Collection

The blogs are a buzz with sharing and chatting about the new IKEA PS collection for 2009. It’s funny to read all the opinions out there, some love IKEA, some discredit it as being for the college crowd only, and others don’t seem to have a set opinion — me, well I really love some of this stuff. I I mean look at their latest additions, what’s not to love?

IKEA

I’d use the coffee table as a bench for displaying books and art in my office, the stool would be great for stacking towels in the bathroom, and the light would be gorgeous suspended over a circular wood table surrounded by these great chairs also shown above. The vase I’d use for a patio space, several in a row would look nice on a bench. You can even have some fun with this stuff and paint it, the stool would be cute if you decoupaged the top and painted each of the legs in a fun color, for instance. I can see that chair in black leaving the white part white with a black/white patterned cushion on the seat. Fun!

To me at least, IKEA is not just for the college crowd or for people who are broke or in need of some temporary furniture. Sure, some items aren’t made too well just like the stuff you’ll find at Target and other big box stores, but overall I’m very happy with the things I’ve purchased there throughout the years (I shopped IKEA before they came to the east coast, carting stuff over by place from England).

Truth is, I’ve purchased things from designer wares on down to thrift store finds, spending $500 on a single lamp to $20 for a flea market find and in the end I don’t always see price as a sign of quality or craftsmanship. Sad, but true.

What do you think about shopping IKEA and particularly, about this new collection?
