New Rug

I’ve had my eye out for a bigger rug for the living room pretty much since I bought the wonderfully inexpensive one two years ago.  I also thought it would be nice to bring in some more color with our next rug.  Up until recently, the least expensive rugs I found that I really liked were over $600.  About a month ago, I found a nice 7.5 X 9.5 green hand-tufted rug on Tuesday Morning‘s site for $299 with free shipping.  That would give me an extra 27″ width and 24″ length over my current rug.  I knew I would never find another large rug for such a good price, so I ordered it.

Initially it has shed a lot, but I love the pile and it still looks great.  I love the added color, and that our rug now goes under the front legs of both couches and the side chair.

Bradley got a new camera that is somewhere between  a point-and-shoot and a DSLR that should make taking pictures for the blog easier for me, and make keeping up with (and actually using) a camera on trips easier for both of us.

For comparison, here is how the living room looked two years ago.  Lots of changes! Pillows, tables, lamps, chair, and now the rug.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
