"I keep having visions of gracious rooms and Ektorp Tullsta."
(Come on--if you've been to IKEA, you have thought that too. )
And speaking of setting up--while trying to impress upon various people why I don't want lots of tables at the Knit In:
"I want some cozy sitting areas, I don't want it to look like a junior high lunch room."
