stripey!!

also known in ikea as a pair of hedda rak cushions… i’ll take photos and upload soon… anyway… being such an ikea visitor (they shld give more privileges for members who visit often…) i was there on sunday juz so i could eat meatballs… and of course after dinner… you’re too full to do anything but walk around the store…

originally i wanted to get two red cushion covers to replace the ones that i have at home… unfortunately they were sold out (singaporeans love red version white i guess…) and hedda rak was the other one i would love to buy only if they came in stripey versions for both coz the checkered box version juz looks yucks… and i’m not gonna pay 10bucks for a cushion cover i din like… n i’ve been aiming at it for quite a while…

so we continued walking and i picked up an oven mitt (stripey pattern… hrmm), a couple of display postcards and as always i HAVE to visit their as-is corner… basically as-is items can be items that were once display sets… or used in the ikea office or spoilt in one way or another… or leftover stock etc for fabrics…

and to my greatest surprise and happiness (i couldn’t believe my eyes at first)… my stripey cushion cover was amongst the items in the as-is corner!! woot~!! okies both stripey and checkered were there and i immediately grabbed the stripey… which was going for 5 bucks!! good great fantastic deal~!!! =D also got a pillow case which was good quality material but i think a bit bigger than usual pillows… the best deal is still the stripey… hee

right now stripey is being used as an ibook cover… ahhaha put the ibook in the cover… fold cover in half and place into bag… the stripes are in a refreshing green colour… =D *beams*
