Marianne has been on the lookout for some new pictures for the living room for some time and saw some she liked at IKEA. So we planned a trip to the Baltimore store. If you have never been to IKEA, it is big, has all kinds of things for the house, and winds you through the entire place from entrance to exit. (There are short cuts, but we usually take the long tour.) As we rounded the corner near the start, Marianne spotted sofas and said "I like that". We have been looking for a new sofa for some time, so stopped to check them. We checked prices, too measurements and followed the arrows, picking up some other things and the pictures. Back home we found sofa would fit nicely and I could fit it in the van for the trip home (IKEA stuff comes in boxed with "some assembly required"). So a second trip retrieved the sofa. The old one was donated, new one assembled and pictures hung. And we are enjoying our new seating and color addition to the walls.
