What a Difference a Rug Makes!

Conrad had this rug at the front door when I moved in. I think I had the SAME rug in Dallas, before I moved. Pretty sure mine were in the kitchen. This rug was fine, for a long time but last weekend when I was sweeping I noticed how bad and how frayed it looked and really - for a 7 year old rug from Wal-Mart probably, not bad. But can you see where at least in three places the strings are coming out?

So I took myself down to Wal-Mart last week and bought a new one. One that's a little different, or quite a bit different. I just needed something small in the space there - but I wanted it to POP, for whenever we start showing our house - so I went with a bold color. Red and khaki.

The reason is, if I back up a little you can see our dining room is red and khaki and I think it looks GREAT (click on the pics to make them bigger). I was so surprised how good it did look when I put out the new one. Blanca doesn't like it. She keeps smelling it and glaring at me. I guess she can smell all the people who have handled it - and it does not meet with her approval. She doesn't like change. She had probably JUST gotten that old rug to smell like her and now she has to start all over again. I'm a terrible mom. :)
