You are such a bunch of loves aren't you? You always have such lovely things to say about what I've made. I really do appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment, I know how busy you all are. Of course I don't want you to leave me a comment every time, I'm thrilled even if you've just stopped by to read my ramblings.
Remember my yoyos from the weekend? Well now they are a cushion. With linen covered buttons no less.
I also think I love it on my bed. Yes I know I made it as a present... but...
You have to agree, it does look good on our bed, don't you? Do you also think it looks great on the carpet? Now you think I've gone potty in my head don't you? Please let me explain...
We need your opinion once again. Yes, you see we value your opinion very much. You did so well with the curtain choice last year that now we want to use your fabulous knowledge with something even more important than that. Carpet.
You see it's not easy to choose carpet. Especially when men see colours so differently to us. I just don't get it quite frankly. And they say carpets look two shades lighter when down. How on earth are you supposed to imagine that?!!
Anyway the nice carpet man, who just happened to fall down the office stairs racing to his appointment with us and ended up with two slipped discs and sustained a large hematoma on his nether region (ooops!), found a really big sample of this colour for us. The very colour the man of the house liked best (and I didn't agree). I have to say it looks pretty good in the photo. Do you think it looks OK too? Neutral looking? It's actually got browny bits mixed with whitey natural bits.
It's only for in our bedroom at the moment, we had to as there were large bits of carpet missing after ripping out the mini kitchen. We aren't ready to do the whole house yet. If we end up having to change it in a few years time to have matching carpets, well that's just the way it is. In NZ we have the whole house lot of carpet the same. We just do!
So if you would like to give your two cents/pence worth, go ahead. We won't mind if you don't like it a bit. Honestly!
