Last week my parents were both in Vancouver for a few days and I happened to mention that if they were planning on stopping by Ikea….I might want them to look at tall, slender bookcases….but only if they were planning on going, of course.
So on Saturday morning I received a call from my wonderful father who was pricing out bookcases for me. He ended up getting the perfect one!! It fits beside my fireplace and we kind of angled it to make it more accessible to get books out.

And books I have! A lot of books!

Here are empty and full photos of my new shelves:

Also, after my dad asked if there was anything else I wanted him to look at….I said, Hmmm, check out the small dressers, I could use a nice smaller one.
So he looked, and I measured and we priced out….and he ended up picking up this lovely 3 drawer dresser! I love it! It fits perfectly by my bed. He also picked up a pack of drawer organizers which really work well. I could use some more.

Here are photos, of course! (that’s my new phone on the top!)

I also wanted to post this photo of a walk to the beach during the day.
