Ok. I swear I do NOT know how this happened.
Last week I went to Ikea for a few storage boxes,
but then totally by accident also walked out with a pink kitchen.
It was not premeditated.
But I mean come ON! How in the world is someone like me supposed to resist all this stuff?!
Tea towels with cross stitch & ribbon embellishments ...
And this pretty napkin holder with pink & rose napkins to go with ...
And this adorable pink gingham/rose tray ... a totally practical and "every day use" sort of thing ... (not).
And even a few (four is considered "a few", isn't it?) lovely little plant pots ...
WITH plants! Faux, of course - 'cause I shouldn't be allowed to own real ones.
Lucky for me horticulture isn't a prerequisite for parenthood. If it was I'd be on the "dangerous offender" list ... with a tracking device strapped to my ankle ... and "must not come within 50 feet" on my list of probation conditions.
Sorry. I digress. My plant-neglecting ways are totally off topic.
Anyhow. It was all just so ... irresistable. I couldn't help myself. You can't possibly blame me, can you? In my defense, there were even more items from this collection I didn't bring home ... like aprons, tins, pot holders, larger planters.
Come to think of it, I believe I showed remarkable restraint ... which kinda destroys my temporary insanity plea. ;)
