  1. Woohoo and I believe as your newest follower that I am the 350th! Happy Monday. :) Erica


  2. Oh I am very interested in the 10 rooms. I am going to check it out. Anything to help be declutter... if thats what it was. How I wish I lived near an IKEA. It would make life so much easier.
    Have fun Barbara, can't wait to see what you've found.

  3. Oh and I forgot to say how Posh your new digs look. I like! I too was also very thrilled with Targets announcement, although I'm sure my home town will not be one of the lucky ones : (

  4. I just found your blog and it's great! I'm your newest follower! :)

  5. At least you have Ikea!!! Even though I LOVE Target...I think I love Ikea more.....which reminds me that I need to go :)

  6. Nice work Barbara! Definitely well deserved...and on another note, I am also planning on getting the Ektorp love seat for my play room. Do you think I'm crazy for getting it in white?? Everything can be bleached right?? :)

  7. I've got an Ektorp sofa and 2 of the chaises and LOVE them!! You can never go wrong with white - slip off the cover and give it a wash and it's good as new - now what other sofa could you do that with?

    Thanks for the lovely compliments on my kitchen! xo

  8. This room is shaping up to be fab Barbara! Can't wait to see it all together. Congrats on the features :)))
