Check out the faded oriental carpet
on the cover of this month's domino.
Now check out some of the carpets in my house.
Makes me feel almost stylish!
I love the faded worn look and have them all over my house.
Most of them came from my grandmother and grand aunts.
The carpet pictured above was on my Aunt Mary and Aunt Alice's sunporch,
maybe that's why it is so faded.
Now it has a new life in my living room.
The "good" rugs were scooped up by someone else.
The rug, desk, chair and picture frame all came from my
Grandmother. She even needlepointed the chair seat.
The rug above has a big hole,
but it is on my side of the bed so I am the only one who sees it regularly.
I mentioned my wedgewood-like tin with the Greek goddesses,
there it is on the bookcase.
I love my cozy house
and all the old stuff from family and my treasure hunts.
This rug came with d.h., not sure of its "provenance".
I found treasures at auctions estate sales or antique stores
that I will showcase another day.
Of course, one person's treasure is someone else's junk!
