Art and ikea.........

Recently we went up to the Commonwealth Games...........more on that soon...........the first day I didn't have a ticket for the event Mr Chooky and Fairy Girl went too so I found a way to fill in my time............
I had seen Michelle's post about her groups art exhibition.............I was so excited when I worked out it would still be on later in the month when I was up there.........so I emailed Michelle and even better she was on volunteer duty that day...........So exciting to see the exhibition it is one of the kinds of art I like........
and it was great to see Michelle........here she is with her lion.........
loved the birds she had in too but I missed get a pic of them........
i have followed her art journey for awhile now.........she even has a blog just for her art now........Nature of Art......check it out...........
Another morning we had a few hours to spare and Ikea was close by......having never been there my friends I was staying with said well lets all go..........so we did.........I'm dreaming of the chairs above.............but they don't do delivery to my place.......not even anywhere close (as in a few hrs)...........Might have to go back and get them..........but its a very LONG trip...........
 
And for years I have seen these tray trolleys and finally I have my own now....I got the dark blue...........even managed to put my first piece of Ikea furniture together.........
Catch you later....... Chookyblue.....

  2. Wonderful to catch up with Michelle and to see her art work up close. That is a very nice chair, might have to do a road trip to get yourself one. Great organiser there.

  3. I just went to Ikea for the first time last November, and it is less than two hours away.
    Your dream chair looks very nice!
    Wow--congrats on assembling the cart. I hear a lot of jokes about assembling their stuff. :)

  6. Lucky girl on the trolly! I have been wanting one of these for ages. There is not an IKEA anywhere near me though, so may be a while yet before I come across one.

  8. How brilliant to see Michelle's work up close - I do love her art. I have never had a problem putting together stuff from Ikea - dare I say it, but it's usually men who have the problem cos they don't read the instructions! Enjoy your new trolley. xx

  12. The last time I was at IKEA there was only one color choice for those carts—I love the blue! It’s a good thing IKEA is 3 hours away or I would have to have one in every color—lol!

  13. What a pleasure to catch up with Michelle and see the art exhibition. Michelle is a very talented lady..
    My DD is also lusting over a chair like the one you want for her craft room.Would be great to sit and hand stitch in.
    Great you finally got an IKEA trolley and could assemble it too.

  14. I keep hoping that you'll have several years of rain in plenty instead of dry, dry, dry.

  15. Ikea is an experience in itself, let alone trying to put together a piece of furniture. I am sure you will find a similar chair closer to home, now you know what you want.

  16. Fabulous! We used to have an Ikea about 2km away - a nice walk there and back. Sadly it moved to about 10 km away and I've only been twice in 10 years!
