A little fur……..


I just love fur…..

not just any ole fur though……..

Mongolian fur!!!

I adore the way it looks draped over a chair.














So, of course I had to have my own!

Be warned though, Mongolian pelts are not an inexpensive purchase.

I have been saving my

pennies hoping to buy one of my own.

Then the other day I came across a faux one on Etsy.

I thought it would be a good idea to try a faux one to make

sure I would love it as much in my own home

as I do in the inspiration pics before spending the big bucks.

I figured if the faux one were really horrid I could

always use it for a dog bed.


Here is mine……

Hi Des,

I really like the addition of a fur throw or rug in the home ~ especially now during the dead of winter. I have my eye on one :) and yours looks so pretty!

I have always loved furs too. Jess had a big white fur rug in her room while she was in college. I think furs make a room look so cozy and warm. Yours is lovely.

I do love how those look in a room. I have a fake one too, but don't even have it out right now. I like yours! It's a pretty grey color it looks like. It's such a nice accent, especially in the winter.

I have had a faux white one for years layered on the floor in my girly guest room. And I have always loved it. The room is cottage style but the rug fits right in. Was I ahead of my time? :) xoxo
