I bought a new carpet for the livingroom yesterday because it was a pattern that I'd loved for a few years, and the colors went with what was already there. How often do you see something you really love being clearanced out? Unfortunately, once I got it home, while the colors were just right, but the size of it wasn't.
So I waffled around about what to do with it today, and got the bright idea to do some switching around, moving the 8 ft round carpet from the library, and putting the new 5 x 8 ft into the library. I changed out the throw pillows and it was perfect, I kept walking out of it and walking back into it, just to admire the new look.
Silly how such a little things can makes such a big happy, isn't it?
I spent the rainy chilly day baking bread, stuffing zucchini for Tim's supper, and trying to figure out the meaning of 'cursus'. Reading wasn't doing it for me, despite Northstoke's help, but I found some videos put out by the English Heritage, and got it all sorted out in my mind.
I think I needed this rainy, puttering day.
This is the new rug, which was bought for the livingroom which wound up in the library.
This is the rug that was in the library, that got moved to the livingroom.
These are the pillows bought to pull together the livingroom.
Bob lives in the library. He approves the changes.
As always, please excuse the poor photos. Someday I will have a decent camera.
