I always have the meatballs with brown sauce, mash and lingonberry jam. If you haven't tried lingonberry before I don't blame you, it's quite bitter and I was never a fan growing up. I have it now purely to cure any homesickness that may occur. My grandma used to put this into whipped cream and call it "troll-cream" so that should give you an idea of its flavour.
For dessert I chose a butterscotch cake and a cinnamon bun. I usually have princess cake with marsipan but because I had eaten so much of it when I was in Norway I branched out and chose something new.
In terms of purchases I got a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Nothing hugely necessary but still nice to have. My sister's name is Marit so when I found this table cloth I simply had to have it. I chose pink because our coffee table is dark wood and Marit is a girl.
These are actually bread baskets but I am going to use them for makeup storage. Stay tuned.
I have a few scarves and this is a great way to store them. You hang it in the closet and the scarves adorn themselves across the circles. Great organisation ploy Ikea.
Ikea has a range of scented candles and I managed to pick up 12. There is nothing cosier on a cold night than to be surrounded by candles. The small ones are $4 each so it is very justifiable.
I also bought a set of new linen. Blue and white feels so right and it cost $30 for a doona cover and 4 pillow covers.
I am now enjoying relaxing evenings on the sofa with the tv off. It's nice to switch off at the end of the night with a good book and silence.
Do you like Ikea? What's your cosy autumn tip?
