Hubby and I took a trip to Ikea the other day. This was only my second time there and I started feeling so Swedish with the Smaland kids area and the Stockholm sofas. What a blast I had but I could not find this vegetable bin. Hubby said he knew where it would be and I'll be darned he knew exactaly where it would be. When he asked if I wanted two of them I did not hesitate to agree that two would be better than one. Once the bins were assembled I immediately moved my vintage Lundby Gothenberg house to see if these bins fit underneath and they do perfectly. Yes I drive a new WV bug and have some miniature ones in different scales. My last car was 14 years old and it was time to retire the old Ford Probe. I wanted a hot little car that had room and an audubon gear. Oh boy does that 5 cyliner move in the sport gear. The VW is in the Bentley family and I call my bug my baby Bentley. I put the black mini bug on top of one room box and the white one on the other. Hence my inspiration for this post. I proceeded to spend hours searching every doll house nook and cranny for miniature items that were either solid white or solid black. The set up below reminds me of the Ikea store and the room selections. I like how the natural sunlight beams through. It was nice to take photos without having to set up lights.

And then we have the Black Room.
It appears that Mary seems to like both of the rooms.
Well she couldn't decide so she bought most items in both rooms. She is very spoiled. I got two so she got two. She had the delivery people set up all items on her Stockholm Mansion Roof top. Wonder what Martin will say when he gets home.

White Room - Lundby items: Piano stool covered in white linen fabric, the chandelier, the vintage pitcher, two white drinking glasses, the white end table, the candelabra and the two orange pillows. The adirondack chairs were purchased at the miniature show last year. The two mice and the spilt milk are very old and I've had them for years.
Black Room - Lundby items: The outdoor grill, the coffee maker, the two yellow coffee cups and the sugar/creamer dish. The two chairs were acquired at a flea market long ago. The vintage telephone sits on the cap from my Oil of Olay bottle. I got the old tire off some old toys that I recently sorted through.
So many little items that I can't list them all. If you are curious about anything in particular please leave a comment and I will gladly respond. Thanks again to "Call of the Small". What a creative mind you have. I just love these two vegetable bins but doubt a vegetable will ever come near them.
