accidental shopping...

was at ikea last week... just jalan-jalan after dinner, no intentions of buying anything. then i saw this box and immediate i see "tat box!!" flashing in my mind! hehe... been meaning to find a bigger tat box for my tatting stuff, coz with the additions of new threads and all, the box emily gave me got kinda crowded! emily, u want ur metal box back?

this box has so many compartments, i can even spare one out specially to act as the 'tat graveyard'! see the compartment at the top left hand corner? well, all the mistakes, practices and tats that din quite make it end up there! :Þ

oh, and i made another purchase --> a lazy susan for my tv! hehe...

i watch tv from ALL corners of my room... sometimes lying in bed, sometimes while ironing, or while eating at the table, wrapping books etc. so i'll just turn the tv around to face wherever i happen to be watching it at that time. and for the longest time, i've always harboured this secret desire to own one of those turnable base thingy for tv, u know, like in the hotels? hehe... so i was just mentioning it to the bf upon entering ikea (who then proceeded to *tsk*tsk*tsk* at me lizard style while shaking his head), when he spotted this lazy susan! i was so excited! well, who cares if it's meant for the dining table and not tv? i like it for my tv ar... and dun u think it goes SO well with my tv cabinet? hehehe...

*the thing has since been renamed 'lazy su' by the bf...

Hey Sue, how much did you pay for the lasy susan? Well, you might as well return the metal tin (yipee - have me metal tin back with me soon!). BTW nice storage box for the tat stuff you accumulated so far (pretty fast? addicted oledi ah?)
