New Rug - 2 Different options

Hi friends,

We are super psyched for the long weekend coming up. Yay, yay, and yay! Tomorrow is a holiday for us so we will be taking it easy and enjoying some much needed down time.

I have some pics to share from a rug I purchased at HomeSense last weekend. I adored the rug design and colors and thought it would be perfect for our front entryway. However, I am notoriously fussy when it comes to rugs and a very high rate of returns when it comes to rug purchases.

So here is what the rug looked like. Nice right?

And here it is in our front entrway.

Too big. The colors aren't right. I don't love it here.

So I decided to try it in the dining area. Although the size wasn't big enough, they had other ones in a larger 8 x10 size that I could have purchased if I liked the look. Here is how it fared in the dining area:

The pattern looked too bold. The colors weren't right. The rug complicates the area.

This is going to be even tougher than I thought. The rug is going back. I have my eye on another rug from one of our local stores. The price is right. More to follow on this quest!

I leave you today with this amusing inspiration - for those of you who like to mix crafting with haberdashery and peeps:

Thanks for stopping by!
