A New Area Rug

I have been thinking about getting a new area rug for my dining room.  The rug I have now is one I ordered off line a long time ago, it was cheap and it shows.  There are fuzz balls on it and it curls in the corners.  There are so many out there, and CSN stores has some fabulous ones.  I have been checking out all the modern rugs they have and have decided we need a change.  Here is the rug I have now.
I want to get a quality more modern one like perhaps one of these.

I love all these modern rugs from CSN stores.  I will post pics when I make the change.
     I can't wait for warm weather.  I hate the fact that I can't do anything.  I have projects I'd like to do, but this weather is way to cold to paint or do anything.  I hate winter!

Happy New Year!!

We had a fabulous Christmas and New Year!  Santa must of had one strong sleigh, because check out this spread.

Santa was actually my Mom.  The unwrapping was fabulous, the pick up and recycling not so much.  I whipped up our dinner table scape in about 10 minutes.  I used some gorgeous place mats I  had, that I  picked up at TJMaxx.  I used silver chargers, with my standard white plates.  I couldn't find any fabric napkins, so I used some white paper towels. (Party Foul)  To make them look a little less tacky I wrapped them with silverware and cut some sparkly ribbon to hold them together.  I used some little round mirrors to glam it up, and of course the beautiful candelabra from Goodwill.  I loved it!!


The menu was seasoned Prime Rib from Costco, it was soooo good.  We of course had all the regular fixins, dessert was red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.  YUMMMMM TO THE E.  The best part is everything is still in our fridge rotting.  I don't know about you all, but this Christmas pick up never ends.  We finally got rid of the fire Hazard  tree today.  It feels so good to be holiday free for awhile.  The only holiday I want to think about is the one I'll be taking to Florida.
I want to also say thank you to Better After for featuring my Christmas deer head on her blog.  That was so cool.
