A few weeks ago, when I was home for Christmas, my Mum and I took a trip to Ikea to check out their post Christmas sale. I suppose you could say it was my maiden voyage into the unknown as I had never set foot into an Ikea before! It was a little daunting at first, being faced with a labyrinth of rooms filled to the rafters with cloned home-ware, but I did manage to escape in the end laden with some wonderful hidden gems..
These two toasty blankets were just what I'd been dreaming of for our new sofa! I just adore the texture and softness of the white shaggy one which is called the Ofelia throw. The black and white one is called the Eivor throw and it has been well loved this week amidst this weather!
The illustrated bat notebook was far too wonderful to leave behind and these whimsical musical score side plates were a steal at just £1.50 each! I had spotted the retro red striped tray in one of the kitchen displays but by the time we came to collect what we wanted from the warehouse it appeared that they had none left.. so we nabbed the display tray and nobody was any the wiser once the 'display item' sticker was removed!
A small detour to the Disney Store was very much needed after Ikea so that I could check out the sale they were having on all their Frankenweenie items in-store and oh my! was I a very happy bunny with the treasure I found!
I had already made a small order of Frankenweenie items from the Disney Store back in October, namely Sparky above and the mug and tumbler below so when I found Victor on sale at just £5.39 reduced from £18 I knew Sparky and he would be reunited once again!♥
Frankenweenie Slime Mug ~ £2.39 reduced from £8
Frankenweenie notebook and bookmark set ~ £1.79 reduced from £6
Victor Christmas Tree Figurine ~ £2.99 reduced from £10
This absolutely amazing breakfast set was reduced from £18 to just £5! My early morning sleepy eyes will now be happily awakened by the sight of Sparky, Victor, Persephone, Mr. Whiskers, Weird Girl, Edgar and Elsa staring back at me!
Now I'm just waiting, rather impatiently might I add, for the DVD release in February which I have on pre-order! As soon as it drops through our letterbox I'm sticking it in the PS3, grabbing Victor and Sparky and jumping on the sofa to snuggle up with a hot cup of tea (in the Frankenweenie mug naturally!)
Have you had much luck with the January sales?
