The joy of Ikea
How was your three-day weekend (for the Americans in the room)? If your weekend was anything like mine, it was over much too quickly!
Yesterday we went to Ikea, which was busy busy busy with a good international crowd. It seemed like no matter which direction we turned, there was someone speaking a different language – all united by one Swedish furniture store.
I couldn’t help but notice the international flavor of the prints on display, as well. London, as well as Paris and New York City, were showcased in a big way:
We didn’t buy any new prints on this shopping trip, but we did get a new mattress, some espresso cups, a kids’ rug, some of these and a few other small bits and bobs. One thing to note: Ikea has discontinued its offer of 1% off your next order when paying with a debit card! (I wish we had known about this before we finished checking out…)

Does someone know where the picture with the double bus was taken? In London but where exactly?
The bus is passing Fortnum and Mason on the right there so I believe it’s Piccadilly.
