My mother-in-law made this beautiful wool rug as a wedding gift. She let me pick out the shape, size and colors (she even dyed a couple herself). We didn’t really know what to expect with the grey, yellow and ivory color combination. Though it seems trendy, I figured these colors would make the rug look more modern while still retaining the old-fashioned feel from a braided rug. I have to say I was completely thrilled when I open the box!
The photos don’t do it justice, plus you can’t feel how soft it is. As you can see, even the four-legged member of the household approves! This photo was taken soon after I unrolled it (you can see the edges are still a little wavy) and Spoo has pretty much claimed it as his own. Because of this I’ve had to move it from the living room to my office (oh geez that’s a real shame, now i have it all to myself) where I can shut the door when I’m not around. See, Spoo Kee likes to dig his claws into the wool (as most cats would); he knows he’s not supposed to. In fact, while I was on the computer the other day, I heard the faintest of sounds behind me: *pick* *pick*. Yes, that was Spoo Kee trying to be ever so quiet while scratching the rug!
Oh, and thank you for the comments on Dress Parade (Yellow, Part 1), I’m glad you love that little yellow dress. Part 2 is coming up very soon!
