My Morrocan RUG!


Whew, this has been a killer couple of weeks. I stabbed my left hand, needed stitches, finished the kitchen, had my birthday, got a rug... (and new bed linens, things are happening in the bedroom, but that is a tale for another post) So many, I am not sure where to start. Well, thats not true, lets start with the rug...

I contacted Maryam from My Marrakesh, I started reading her blog in 2007 when I first learned about blogs. Anyway, I was like hi, um, you wanna do a trade? Well she said yes, I painted three pieces for her, in exchange for some of the price of the rug. In short, I got a killer deal, it shipped in about a week and it arrived all fluffy and purdy. 'member when ya'll voted? Well I chose the one that won, as you can see.




For my bday I decided to buy a ton of flowers, since I had not had any in the house for three months, why bother when the house is such a disaster? These tulips went ape shit. Boy do I have a lot of catching up to do!

  2. I voted for this one! It looks so cozy and soft.

    We just got new seagrass rug in our living room because it's so forgiving of spills and dog accidents (errr... if you call an accident something like "I'm mad because you walked him instead of walking me so I'm going to pee here"). I love seagrass, but am envious that you don't have to worry about such things and have your dream rug! Get it, girl.

    You must share the hand stabbing story.

  3. Lord, it sure does photograph pretty. I'd not seen one in person until the other night at Casa Armas. The texture is just sublime. And your home, well it is gorgeous! Thanks again for the invite Michelle, it was so great to finally meet you and your wonderful family!

  10. Wow, doll. I hope you had a fabulous birthday. The flowers sure are pretty. And the rug is pretty darn fantastic. It looks so inviting. Who needs a couch? I would want to just lie on that rug all day.

  11. So beautiful -- just like your entire house! I'm still in complete rapture over your kitchen cabinet pulls. And your cabinet paint color and your stunning chandelier. You've done such a great job. The entire house is not only gorgeous -- but warm and welcoming.
