Kitchen Haul: Anthropologie, West Elm and Ikea

This Monday was our first anniversary. Yay! I have had so much fun with my new life with Reuben and wouldn’t trade it for anything.

In celebration of our anniversary, we decided to take a shopping trip to the cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul to all you non-Minnesotans).

I was able to visit Anthropologie for the first time ever. It definitely won best store that we visited.

West Elm was another first-timer for me. Wow. Absolutely lovely store.

Hey! That’s my bowl!


Here’s everything I got over the weekend.


These two bowls were from Anthropologie. The bowl on the left is no longer sold and it was on sale for about $5! On the right is the lotus bowl in blue, $4.

I found this mid-sized (7-3/4″) cake stand at West Elm. It was just the size I had been looking for! $19


Also at West Elm were these spatulas. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always running out of spatulas when I cook. The two on the left came as a set of mini-spatulas – what a handy size! The set and the larger spatula were on sale for $3.99 each (originally $8).


When I spotted these espresso cups at Ikea, I knew I needed them. I’ve had my eye on little demitasse cups for some time. They were $2.99 each.


Also at Ikea, I found this milk frother for only $2.99. Now I can make lattes with foam!

We also had some fun dining experiences. I may write up a review when I get the chance.

What’s your favorite recent kitchen purchase?

  1. I love your bowls and the spatulas! You are so right, a girl can never have too many spatulas! No recent purchases but we are going up to Chicago so it will be a day at Ikea and a few other stores… an early anniversary present for us.

  2. Happy Anniversary! 🙂 And I love your purchases! The colors are just lovely. And what bargains! I wish I could find steals around here like that! 😉

  3. Happy Anniversary! I love shopping at West Elm. Did you eat there? My fav place to eat in this area is Cooper’s. Ikea is awesome too…..sounds like a splendid way to celebrate an anniversary!

  4. Looks like you had fun.

    My most recent kitchen purchase – a marble cheese slicer. It’s pretty nifty. 🙂

    Happy Anniversary!!

  5. I love your bowls! They are so cute. Whenever I got to thrift stores I am always drawn to the mugs. They are always under $1 and some are just sooooo cute! 🙂
