I’ve been looking for a runner for our galley kitchen because:
a. I hate the linoleum floor in our kitchen
b. the floors are getting colder as winter approaches
c. thinking something colorful would take your eye away from the fact that I hate the linoleum floor (I know I already mentioned that).
This is a cool Oushak patchwork rug at IKEA but it was more than I wanted to spend in an area where food stains are highly likely.
I dragged Howard to the Alameda Antiques fair yesterday and we wheeled and dealed and got this kilim rug from Pakistan.
The tie back is a belt.
The curtain actually inspired me to straighten up my compact office. Thanks for the flowers, Howard.
And I DID wrap a few presents with paper, ribbon and snow flake cards from Paper Source (I got an email from them about a 20% off sale–I just had to show the email on my telephone while I was there…it was not advertised in the store).
