My heart skipped a beat...


SHUT UP!!! Is it true? Is Winnipeg finally getting an IKEA??? This morning the Winnipeg Sun reported that the "Sweden-based furniture chain Ikea will announce today that it is planning to set up shop in Winnipeg."

Yahoo!!! Too long have we be deprived of the basic building blocks of an affordably stylish home. Ikea's clean aesthetic lends itself so well to a marriage with vintage home decor. I've made the trip to Minneapolis and Calgary many times and returned with a beyond full carload. I only have to wait until 2013 to shop at home! Well, better late than never. GRIN
