I am looking for an IKEA sofa in a town with NO IKEA....

I am wanting needing a new loveseat  for our living room.
IKEA has the one I want and it also comes with SLIPCOVERS.
sooooo in luv....want it.....BAD
$around 500.00
that's an awesome price...very doable .

No Ikea in our town....WHAAAAT ??
and the cost of shipping from their store is a million dollars.


$1,299.00
I don't think so...
I don't even like it NOR it's color..


THIS one.....waaay too tan.
I. WANT. WHITE. WITH. SLIPCOVERS.

I haven't found a single one I like in this whole town.
Am I going to have to make a trip to Dallas ???
Stacy....?????






I did find this awesome mirror that I love.

( I have a thing about mirrors...just love them and think you can't have too many)





Too much money...

so I just took a picture of my silly, cheap self.

(I take a LOT of blood thinners so hence the "bruises" on my poor, 77 yr old arms....
and here YOU thought I had leprosy )


THIS is the latest one....they aren't really bruises...and not sore.
With such thin blood, any a minor hit on the arms produce blood vessels breaking .
This one is probably the largest I've ever had...
Stacy, our girl, and I were thrifting and when I started to move a mirror
from several standing up against the wall, the whole bunch started falling and
whopped me on the arm.
It didn't even hurt.......much..





I will be wearing a lot of long sleeves like
HERS....

and they will make me look JUST LIKE HER, too.

and if they do, I will order 23,000 of these shirts....

and send YOU some...
and ALL in
WHITE...

so we will  blend into my brand new
WHITE IKEA SOFA....

  1. I wish you luck on the love seat. We don't have a Ikea anywhere close to us. I have always wanted to go to a store. Slip covered would be nice. I already wish I could wash my new couch...baby threw up on me today.

  2. I love white, it is so clean looking, not easy to keep that way!
    Hope you find the one you're looking for!
    Happy hunting!

  4. I'm glad the bruise isn't painful! Love that loveseat! When I was looking I really wanted something with a slipcover but it was hard to find just what I wanted. I hope you can make a field trip and pick one up!

  5. I bruise so badly, too, bj, and I don't take blood thinners. You look so cute in the mirror! You're such a doll!!!
    Come to Dallas and get that sofa. I live several miles away from Ikea. We could meet and eat some Swedish meatballs in their cafe!! Come, come!!6

  6. Ii think you should go to Dallas or Austin and get that sofa. You deserve it for the awful bruise you have on your arm.

  7. You look very nice and pretty! I live really close to an IKEA store here in Chicagoland and would you believe I've never been in it! My SIL and her daughters would come up here from Louisville and spend the whole day shopping there. I need to go! That's a great loveseat! Take care

  8. Oh yes! Those bruises! From our blood thinners!

    We mostly get used to them, especially since they are doing their part, to keep us going!!!

    Last one I got, was right on my forehead. (Forgotten cabinet door) Hair bangs most cover it. But I forgot about it, and probably swept my bangs up, during Physical Therapy, and was "silly-embarrassed" later.

    Now, I put makeup on it. LOL.

    Good luck with your special white love seat!!!!!

  9. Our Katie wants the IKEA sofa as well for her new apartment. We are going to have to purchase it here and load it with her other belonging come August to take to TN as they don't have one either. When she was in Waco, we rented a suburban and made the stop in Austin to get things for her apartment there. I feel your pain.

  10. Off you go to Texas . . . 500 is much better than 1200 . . .
    The closet IKEA to me is either Chicago or Detroit.
    A few years back, youngest grandson had picked out a cool IKEA bed so
    I rode along with my grandson and daughter to make the trip to Detroit
    to pick up the bed. What fun we had with all the boxes squashed in the Yukon and
    what a fun memory trip it was. Take off with your daughter, and have fun!
    Perfect Love Seat!

  11. I love that sofa! I also wanted the IKEA sofa but ended up buying one locally and I've never been happy with it. Don't settle!! My Mom takes blood thinners so I know about those bruises.
    hugs,
    Linda

  12. i'm an hour away from downtown dallas, but that ikea store is SO far north, it takes at least 2 hours to get there from here. we did get a few furniture pieces there years back, but i won't even bother going back these days. :)

    your poor (looking) arm. glad it doesn't hurt!

  13. Ok.....get on a plane to Phoenix. Stay at my place....go to Ikea, buy couch, have it sent to you house....come back to my place and have tea....get on a plane while I cry and go home.
    Hmmm, maybe not the most cost effective method, but FUN!

  14. I love that Ikea sofa and the price at the store but the delivery charge is crazy! I've only been in Ikea twice. (Poor me!) The closest one to me is about 3 hours away.

  15. Hi BJ, hope your bruises are healing. I take one blood thinner and get little bruises occasionally, but tripped over the dog on the sidewalk once and had to go to Emergency. They didn't say but took a picture because I know they thought Jerry beat me! It took a long time to heal. Good luck on your sofa. It looks so cute, I can see why you like it. How far would you have to drive to get it?. Looks like it might be worth it..Happy Weekend..Judy

  16. Sounds like a trip to Ikea is in the works. Don't you hate it when you find something you want and then can't get it immediately? My arms look like yours except mine are from a crisis I had when John was so ill and I broke out all over. My arms are so scarred. However, I am just too hot natured to wear long sleeves all summer. They will just have to wonder what I've been up to! LOL

  20. Cute shirt!! Have you sat on the Ikea couch? Their furniture is great for young adults and apt life, but I think you might be disappointed. We are getting an Ikea 90 miles away - yippee - they do have lots of fun, unique stuff (nothing we need but lots we would like)…good luck on your search! And stop causing a commotion in the stores by moving mirrors!!

  21. Good luck finding just the right love seat. I am going to come straight out and tell you I am green with envy, you are so pretty and a bundle of class.

  22. That gal should be so blessed to look just like your cute self!

    Wow. It looks as if it hurts. At least, you remember how you got that whopper bruise. Half the time, I don't remember such things.

    Go ahead now, bend Stacy's rubber arm! You gals need a trip, don'tcha think? Fun sofa! Perfect for summertime fun.

  23. Ha! You are your own cute self for sure with personality that I enjoy. IKEA sure does have some good bargains...
    Hope you solve your "need" for that sofa!

  24. I know the feeling, our closest one is an hour and a half drive

  25. Hope you get your sofa! They are pretty! I would have to go to down town Atlanta to shop Ikea, and my husband doesn't like to drive there, nor does he want me to. Ugh!! I sure would like to go, though. Be sure and send me one of those shirts, as I wanna look like her too! Take care of yourself. My sister's arms do the same thing.

  28. Hope you find a IKEA in white...lol it looks like a beautiful piece of furniture! Now, you should not have mentioned your arms, all I saw was how skinny you are!! You look amazing! But I understand about blood thinners and brusing. And please....let me know if that white shirt works...I'll buy several too if it does! Lol

    Blessings,

  29. I sure hope you soon find that perfect loveseat, one that will set your heart aflutter. And, with no shipping charges. Isn't that ridiculous.

  30. I need some of them shirts sister cuz I have the same problem and I don't even take blood thinners. I just bought a skin cream that is supposed to help but is probably a scam. Called DermMend.... Since those non bruises fade eventually anyway, I'll never know if the cream helped or not. Crap.

    Anyway. The nearest IKEA to us is Tampa or Miami and we have made a zillion trips to both ... They really do NOT want to ship stuff. They want your body in the store. So you will buy more. And you do. Or at least we do. But good prices, oh yes. And perfect stuff for small spaces like ours.

  31. I love that white sofa with the slips! So know how it feels to find something at a good price and you know it's a deal but no way to get it. You are adorable bj, you look great, love the selfie. Sorry you had a slip of the mirrors. My dad was on thinners and I know he bruised so easily. I hope you have a great week, go get that sofa!
