Love is not needing a snooze button on your alarm clock
because when it goes off the first time in the morning
the thoughts of your loved one
make it impossible to fall back asleep.

A new rug pad…….

 

Untitled 2

Originally when I bought the Oushak rug for our living room I went with a rug pad like this from a big box store:

All Surface Rug Pad

My seagrass rugs had a rubber backing so I didn’t use a rug pad with them. In the end the rubber backing deteriorated and smelled bad which is why I decided to buy new rugs in the first place. However I quickly discovered there weren’t many options for rug pads available locally which is why I ended up with the rug pad pictured above. The rug pad stuck to the floor pretty much instantly but the rug still shifted around on top of it. When I decided to move the Oushak rug to our bedroom I decided to pull the rug pad up which left a grid pattern on the floor even though it was only down for a short time. In the end I selected a rug pad from: Rug Pad USA.

RUGPADUSA

I selected the Premium Lock rug pad for hardwood floors because it was rated the highest for cushion, durability, and grip AND it has a 20 year warranty!!! As exciting as it is to buy a new rug, buying a rug pad….not so much! So, I wanted something that would last a long time that I wouldn’t need to replace every few years plus they are manufactured right here in the good ole USA!!!!!! I like that they show the rating for the rug pad so there is no guessing on whether or not it is just what you are looking for and I also got to select the thickness I needed. The reviews from customers are under the product so you can see what people are really saying.

The rug pad arrived quickly and was rolled up in plastic.

It sat in the corner for a few days because the thought of moving all the furniture again didn’t exactly sound appealing. The other day I decided it was time to just do it  so I marked the corners of the rug on the floor with painters tape so I could place the rug back in the room in the exact same spot without repositioning it a 101 times.

I have to say I am quite impressed because the rug does not move at all!!!! Since the rug does not have a tight weave even my dogs running thru the house before would make the rug shift and bunch up in certain areas. Now it stays put nicely!

So, If you are looking for a great rug pad that is reasonably priced click over to Rug Pad USA. They also have rug pads for outdoors if you are lucky enough to have a great outdoor space to relax in. PLUS they are also offering 10% off and free shipping!!!!!

New pillows in the guest bedroom……

When I switched things around in the living room I moved the two white French chairs to the guest bedroom. Of course then they needed new pillows……

The pillows are from Ballard Designs and are linen with a metallic print on the front and a solid linen on the back.

Peaceful Sunday…..

 

Autumn in Appalachia

Love is something you can't describe
like the look of a rose,
the smell of the rain,
or the feeling of forever.

We remember……..

MY TEARS CALLED OUT YOUR NAME

by ~Sarah Petrie

Normal morning

Shattered by thieves of existence,

Helplessly watching

My heart is so torn

Mass pain, inexpressible by words, incomprehensible

Tears hold more voice than I.

I long to hold you;

I long to hold you, to wipe the dust of catastrophe from you;

So many weep; I feel helpless.

I see your searching soul

Panic, pain, confusion

Your loved ones are lost

"Where have they gone?'

'Can you help them?'

Perhaps they are here,

somewhere,

Perhaps not.

I wish I could help you;

That day my tears called out your name;

I will never forget you.

 

In God We Trust
