What Are These?
We were at Ikea a few weeks ago, looking at headboard ideas for our bedroom. I came across these "sock pillows" in the children's department. What in the world are these used for? I can't imagine that a baby could balance while learning to stand on this thing! Enlighten me, please.
Traipsing around Ikea can be exhausting, so we had to stop in the uber-modern cafeteria for our Swedish meatball lunch. Delicious!

We saw some interesting headboard options at Ikea. I particularly like this Japanese-inspired wall of wooden slats. Shelves can be inserted for various objects. Interesting idea.
Near our house we spotted an upholstery shop on Pico Boulevard with this FABULOUS tufted Princess headboard in the window. Oooooooooo! It's so Barbie.
Addendum: The lovely and clever Christine found out about those crazy pillows:
From Designer Maria Vinka: “My hands and feet are always cold, which iswhy I bury my feet under a pile of pillows whenI lie on the sofa. The thought struck me that itwould be nice to bury my feet inside the pillow,so they would be totally surrounded by thewarm filling. Once I came up with the idea for BARNSLIG pillow, the only thing to do was tocut holes and sew on cuffs. Then I put extra effortinto decorating the pillows, because I wanted them to look like ordinary decorative pillows as well!”
