Russian Doll Fabric Covered Buttons SOLD!

I was really delighted to sell these buttons during the week - they are currently winging their way to their new owner in Spain! I just got the great news that my Sleepover Swap partner finally received my package today - I sent it at the end of August! Our trip to Ikea was highly successful so I'll devote a post to that over the next few days.

Covet Tuesday: Ikea Dublin

I'm so excited - we're off to Ikea Dublin this week! As you might remember I missed a trip my friends had organised over the Summer to Ikea Belfast but my Sister-in-Law is just as excited about the new Ikea store in Dublin so she is very nicely going to drive! I really don't mind what I manage to get but I really love this yellow Hemnes Linen Cabinet. The Hemnes Chests of Drawers are not too shabby either. Also on my wish list is the Bekväm Step Stool but I also like the Fira Mini Chest and Benjamin Stool. I'm also going to do some research on the Dutkig 10 piece Coffee/Tea Set, the Lusy Blom Rug, the Fredrika Fabric collection and the Gregor Swivel Chair! I plan to take my camera so will blog about the trip over the weekend.

Covet Tuesday: Comptoir de Famille

I've been a fan of Comptoir de Famille since a visit to Paris a few years back where I happened across the line in Galeries Layfayette. Since then I've found small collections in shops like Avoca in Dublin, Boulevard Interiors and The Pavilion in Cork but the online catalogue is well worth a look too - the Autumn/Winter line is not accessible yet but the Spring/Summer is still relevant for another few weeks (hopefully!). I have a weakness for anything made from wire at the moment so I really love these eggbaskets and these Rooster paintings caught my eye too - all highly covetable!
