Hey guys! So how was your Christmas? I’ve been lounging around with my family since Christmas Eve and enjoying every minute! We have friends in town from Virginia that will be staying with us until New Years Day. This is why I’ve been on a little blog break this week, but I wanted to pop in to show you what Santa brought us this year.
Did you guess what it is? I guess the post title sort of gave it away huh? Santa somehow fit a 9 x 11 ft. rug down the chimney. Those who have been around this little blog for a while may remember that my hub sort of ruined my old rug.
I had planned to paint the old rug to cover the stain, but I changed my mind when I (yeah, I helped Santa out this year) found this rug at Lowe’s for $169. It looks and feels like a natural fiber rug, but it’s actually polypropylene. It’s an Allen + Roth indoor/outdoor rug, but it looks too nice to use outside. It really is perfect for a dining area that gets used as much as ours does. It’s stain resistant – enough said! The pictures don’t really do it justice. I resolve to learn how to take better pictures in the new year.
We had breakfast in the dining room on Christmas morning.
I still have most of my Christmas decor out, and I have no plans to put it away until after the new year. What about you? Do you still have your tree up or did you put everything away already? I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! I hope to be back with a year in review post, but in case I sink deeper into my life of
laziness leisure I want to wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!
