Today was my first trip to the new IKEA here in Kansas City. I'ts been open for one month but I have waited to avoid all the lines until today. My grandchildren were out of school today so we made a fun girls trip. Had lunch in the restaurant there too.

The store is about 1 mile from my home--so close. Christmas season will sure be busy I'm sure.!!!!

The restaurant is nice and big, reasonable prices, I had salmon with croquettes and lemon sauce.
The girls had Swedish Meatballs and Chicken Fingers.

I saw a rug for my sewing room in their catalog but wanted to see it in person. I decided that I really wanted to buy it.

My Button Rug

I'll be leaving my shoes at the door!!

Hi Ann,

What a precious rug! It really sets the style for your sewing room, and it has a blue button! Thanks for making Blue Monday special.

I'm looking forward to reading your comment on my blue shopping post. Please come back.

Have a Beautiful Blue Monday!

What a perfect rug for a sewing room. I love it. I've never been to an IKEA store, but if I ever get a chance I will have the salmon croquettes, too.

We have one of those stores in Dallas, but not here. I do not go to Dallas if I can keep from it. Understand they have some neat things. Your rug is prefect for the sewing area.

Great post. That is a big Blue. I've been there once. It is over an hour away! We ate lunch too! Looks like you had a great time!
I love the rug!
Have a great week.

Hello Ann, I have always wanted to go to one of those stores but I do not live near one. Your girls day out sounds awesome. Imagine a restaurant inside. My sister-in-law lives near Kansas City on the Missouri side in Gladstone.

I love the button rug so much. Perfect for a sewing room and so darn cute.

Happy Blue Mon.
xo, Jeanne

Ikea is popular in Australia too.

Funny. That IKEA looks exactly like the one we have here, except ours is quite a distance away. We went a couple of times when Bill had his truck, but no longer go, now that our vehicles are bikes :) Lovely colourful rug, perfect for snuggling bare feet :) I'm imagining the fun you and your granddaughters had. They will have fond memories of these times.

Love your rug. I may just have to take a trip to the Ikea in Brooklyn for lunch and some rug looking.
