Swedes & Sputnik

Now this, this is a mailing list I want to be on.

IKEA 2013 Catalog

Look at that armchair: it’s only $9.99.

[Update: that was a joke, you guys. Thanks, though, for your diligent readership!]

As excited as I am about this catalog, I’m even more excited about what’s awaiting me in Jefferson City, Missouri. This vintage sputnik chandelier has been floating around our family for decades – my mom saved it from one of our many house renovations, knowing that one of her kids would like it some day. It’s traveled from basement to basement and I’m going home to claim it next week. And to, you know, see my family.

It needs a bit of restoration work. If anyone has a recommendation for a lighting repair shop in Chicago, I would be very grateful.

You will be mine, you will be mine, you will be mine all mine.
