Did you know that IKEA stands for Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd? Ingvar Kamprad started the company on his parents' farm in Elmtaryd, Agunnaryd, Sweden.
We bought a new chair for the family room, a new desk for my business and a new shoe rack to replace the one in our entrance hall that the dog 'nommed' this morning.
But, being married to a Swede means we also always come away with tons of food from the kiosk. Fortunately, my husband has gone off the herrings for a while, because we used to wind up with bottles and bottles of them in the fridge, in a range of different sauces.
