  1. The original ones are really pretty. Does ikea make ones in that color? Just bought a blue area rug from http://www.rugsdoneright.com and I’m looking for blue home accessories.

    Try the Makta tealight holder. It’s $2.99, but that’s still less than 8 pounds, and the blue is very pretty.

    I think it’s more likely the cheaper version of something Swedish.
