New Additions

It's been a hot minute since we last discussed decor on this blog...let's get to it, shall we? : )

A couple weeks ago, the lovely Bryn of Bryn Alexandra posted about this rug at HSN.com It was immediate love at first price especially after laying eyes on that price tag. I had to have the rug, no questions asked! You're feeling it, too...right?

An 8x10 rug hardly ever comes along that cheap, so I snatched it right up...alongside a cute little green lacquer tray that was also calling my name.

The rug is sitting beautifully in our ever-changing living room that is about to undergo a mini-overhaul {I hope you're not surprised, knowing my indecisive brain!}. We're about to send our craigslist sofa and overstock chair cushions to be reupholstered, the wall "art" above the tv is on its last leg, a new flat screen is somewhere in our future and all new pillows are on their way in. Life with me never gets boring folks...at least in the decor aspect that is : ).

Stay tuned for some fun craigslist purchases I've made this week! You're sure to love them...at least, I think you'll love 'em!

I love your room. It's so put-together without being matchy-matchy. Love the rug - great find.

If you are changing your room, I will personally come to your house and take anything you don't need anymore off your hands. It's my gift to you. =)

I hope you'll share the reupholstering experience. I've been considering this.
