Even I know how crazy this sounds… but today I am dreaming of Ikea. A week from now, we’ll have just arrived in Singapore for five days and four nights of sleeping in, eating well and visiting with our dear friend Li-ling. And we’ll be shopping… or I will be anyway!
It’s hard to imagine that I might be tempted by Ikea when we live near the famous Paul’s Antiques, a Bangkok store that specializes in refurbishing antique teak furniture. (In fact, we have already acquired three pieces from Paul’s… more about that in another post.) The things that I am longing for are small and simple… dinner napkins in bold colours, funky bath mats, candle holders, and the cutlery I love most. It will surprise no one who knows me that I actually have a list.
I promise to take lots of photos in picture-perfect Singapore but I really am going to Ikea! (I think I can hear DP sighing!)
Mondays are for dreaming over at The Mother of All Trips. What are you dreaming of today?
