Late at night I thought “Wait, I still have to take a picture!” and this is what came out of my efforts. The mug was handmade by my mother and I really like it, because it has lots of character. And as always when it comes to my flats, I end up with IKEA furniture too, the bedside lamp is from there. At one point I even had the nickname IKEA girl, since I had most of my furniture from there. Of course I got that nickname after watching Fight Club with a friend. Why we end up with IKEA furniture around here is easily explained though, since most furniture shops in Germany have not only ugly furniture with bad quality, but you also have to wait for ages to get it. I prefer the self assembly to that any time.

  3. This is a great mug. Even more so by the fact that your mother made it. Great shot.

  6. Very nice photo Verena! It has a warm and inviting mood. Ikea has saved the day for us at times too!

  7. I think ‘Ikea Fight Club’ would make for an interesting sequel, don’t you? Brad Pitt spends the first half of the movie searching for a pair of pliers? Okay, maybe not… but it’s another cool shot, Ms. F!

  8. We ended up with almost everything from Ikea because of the international move. When you have no furniture, Ikea is handy since it’s also a bit more affordable, and it’s also the general clean, modern style that we like. Despite all the frustrations, I’m so glad they exist!
