JUST WANTED TO SHARE THESE WITH YOU

Last Friday morning this was the sky I saw. I thought it was beautiful. I know on the news they talked about the evening sky that same day.


So the kids came over on Saturday for dinner. I decided to try a recipe I saw over at my friends Lori's blog @ Altered Glass. It called Light N' Creamy Chocolate Cake Roll. It was really good and actually not that hard to make. Her pictures are better but the end result was the same.

So here it is. The rug arrived on Wednesday. The UPS guy didn't even ring the doorbell which surprised me because he is usually a really helpful guy. The rug weighed 50 pounds, 8 x 10 in size and he just leaned it against the house. I got it into the family room and took a few pictures. Then when my husband came home we arranged it where we had planned on putting it. Let me tell you that for $375. it is a beautiful rug. I always look at rugs at Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, etc. The quality is amazing. I know that they messed up on the original shipping but it was well worth it. You can compare it to rugs that are easily $1,400. My husband said we should order rugs for every room. The other rug in the picture is a rug that I bought two of for in front of our sinks in our bathroom. We really like them.

Good morning~

We have our daughter and son-in-law over for dinner on Friday's. We have such a good time. I will have to go over to Lori's blog and try the Light N' Creamy Chocolate Cake Roll. It looks DELISH!

I love area rugs on wood floors. They just look beautiful! And what a gorgeous rug you picked out.

Sunrises and sunsets are absolutely beautiful. God's handiwork at its best!

Blessings~

Your home, your view, your rugs...all SO beautiful! And that chocolate cake roll sounds and looks delicious! Definitely understand why you wanted to make that! LOL! :-)

I want your rug, I love it!

TechnoBabe said...

Very nice new rugs. We find here that the UPS person sets things on the front porch and if we don't hear someone out there, we find the delivery later.
You asked me when you left a comment on my blog if we watch movies. We rarely go to the movie theater, maybe once a year if that. We check out movies at library sometimes. Haven't watched a movie in a couple months now. Probably check one out next library stop. We have so much more time to do things together and/or individually. We play UNO or other cards and laugh and play. We have dominoes and an electronic dart board. We walk together. Three seasons we bike ride on bike trails. Seems like we are busy all the time. Just not on anyone else's schedule.

Yaya said...

Our new house is all hardwoods so we're going to need to invest in some rugs!

Technodoll said...

You have a keen eye for beautiful pieces - it's lovely! I wish I could find such treasures, our selection here is a bit sparse to say the least.

PropellerHeadMom said...

Gorgeous pictures! I love the rug - it is lovely!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Love the landscaping in your back yard!

Together We Save said...

Crystal Escobar said...

yeah! It finally came, and worth waiting for, right? It is absolutely beautiful!!! I love your family room too :) Wow $375 is a great price, I'm going to go look around at pottery barn, I actually need an area rug too. My husband moved his office out, and now I have an extra room in the house to decorate how I want, yeah! I plan on posting a before and after video of my house soon. We've been remodeling for 3 years now, lol. I'm pleased with how it all turned out!

Holli Taylor said...

Love your pics as always! I fixed my march of dimes link...thanks for the tip!

Mara said...

I love a nice rug, but so do my cats: to sharpen their nails on! So, it's a no-go for rugs in this house.

Cherie said...

Oh I LOVE the rug - the colors are so beautiful!! Right up my alley and it looks great in your room.
