Oh.. a spring! I thought it was a rocket about to take off (one of the ones the kids had left in the bed of course) Phew, otherwise there could have been a bit of an explosion!

Yes, that is succesful advertising; memorable and funny. Can't say I'm that fond of Ikea though.... who wants to dine out on Swedish meatballs whilst perusing bathroom furniture?? I can think of a lot better ways to spend my afternoon... yeah blogging and leaving annoying messages for people for a start...

Christmas kisses!

Miss Jayne, You're not an IKEA fan? There was a time when it was all the rage here. Perhaps it still is I'm out of the loop. I think the consumers thought they were getting their money's worth. I still pop in to pick up an occasional item. I'll have to try the meatballs the next time I'm there.

Nope, it's not for me Mr I; I'm an old fashioned kinda girl; solid oak timeless sort of furniture. Anyway, I get lost in that place;I just wander round and round in circles looking for the exit or the meatballs - whichever comes first.

(I have an interesting Ikea towel rack though - but it's too saucy for publication! It's in my silly email collection which I use to cheer my friends up when their feeling down. This one usually cheers all the ladies up - in you know what I mean!)

I wonder how different the products are in Europe vs. USA. I think I'm getting the idea (picture) of your towel rack.

I remember walking around the store and being fascinated with the knick knacks. Nice napkins and glasses. Still thinking about those meatballs.

Jane Turley said...

Hmm.... well it does have a sort of curiosity value I suppose; I prefer crystal and cloth napkins myself! However, I hear the furniture is very good for speedy erection.

Rather like my towel rack!

Ps I've never actually tried the meatballs, somehow I always manage to find the exit first...

Let's try the meatballs together sometime:) However, I will put a veto on you having any gravy...just in case you've got your frilly shirt on...

Okay, my pick for successful advertising just in time for Christmas is the viral campaign found here: http://bewareofthedoghouse.com/VideoPage.aspx

BTW, cute IKEA commercial...and a frilly shirt? You are so complex.

That happens to me all the time and I have a water bed.

Miss Jayne,

What? No Gravy? That's got to be the best part of the dish. I'll be sure to drape my napkin over my shirt to prevent any splashing. Won't you reconsider?

Miki,

Nice touch on the dog house video. It was quite educational. That could be the biggest dog house I've ever seen. Lots of room for new arrivals. I'm a quick learner.

So Speedy...
Are you trying to say that your springs have popped through your waterbed mattress? You must sleep with a rapid repair kit close by. Oh, I forgot, your name is Speedy. Just kidding! I understand where you're coming from. (Laugh)

Jane Turley said...

Oh okay then! You won't mind if I bring my wicker hamper with my the nice cutlery, table cloth and glasses though will you? You know, we English can be so quaint at times...

or silly...depends how you look at it!

Speedy,

I reckon you'd look pretty good reclining on your waterbed dressed in the sequins....

Miss Jayne,

Sure! Bring it all. Don't forget the picnic basket.
