It’s rare that something leaps out and demands to come home with me, right now.
We’ve been doing fun stuff (ahem…) like getting quotes for carpets, which is where I came across the tiles I showed you yesterday. Today, we trotted along to the supplier we’d chosen to place the order and arrange for fitting. My eye kept catching on six inches of a rug that was sticking out of the hanging display. It was beautiful, rich jewel colours on a dark bluish grey background. I wandered over to have a look, and fell totally in love. I squeaked and exclaimed and petted it. I was probably quite ridiculous, but I found it so beautiful and so utterly ME that I couldn’t leave it alone.
So yes, I accept it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. It’s huge, brilliant, floral, assertive, bright (some might say garish) and generally sensational. But I ADORE it. It’s going to sit on a dark grey carpet background in my sewing room/ library. It makes my heart lift and my face smile whenever I look at it, and the Husband sneaked back into the shop and bought it for me. Am I not blessed in my Husband? The lady in the shop thought it was so sweet that she gave him a discount, so he was pretty pleased with himself too 🙂
Happiness is a big colourful rug ❤
