Seagrass Love

Look what arrived while I was at the beach -- my seagrass rug!! Hubby called me Friday night saying it had been delivered. I could hardly wait to get home to see it. He had it all unpacked and ready to be placed in the dining room. I really love the wide black border. All that's left for me to do now is refinish and recover the dining room chairs. (I also need to put the switchplates back on too!) The walls are not yellow as they appear but a pretty gold color with a chocolate glaze - they look so bright here.

We got back from the beach yesterday afternoon. Of all things, I got a head cold while we were there. I woke up Saturday morning with a sore throat and headache and didn't get up until 11:00 a.m. I finally went down to the pool and felt a little better but I was pretty sick the whole trip. Today I'm just taking it easy but I promise to post some of the pictures I took real soon. I must warn ya'll that a lot of the pictures are of Taylor and McKinley (how can you resist the little girls in their swimsuits)?

Hi Judy! I love your rug. It's a perfect contrast against your beautiful floors! I am waiting for a seagrass rug to arrive too, and after seeing your I'm even more excited. Isn't it funny how paint color looks so different in photos? My walls never look the right color in any of my pictures!

That rug looks great. I'm intrigued by the chair treatment you have...it's very nice and very unlike anything I've seen.

How awful to catch a cold at the beach! Hope that you feel much better soon.

Bless your heart. It's bad enough to be sick at home, but not on vacation! Get well real soon.

Love the rug!

I love your new rug! The room looks so nice. I just love the gold color on the walls. I have a gold color in my dining room and living area. Its my favorite. Wish I lived close by, I'd want to take a tour of your beautiful home! Cant wait to see pics of those grandkids in their swimsuits!!

Judy - sounds like you have had a glorious time at the beach - I am so jealous!!
I love the rug - I have never thought of those - and I love the way they look - another idea!!! Your blog is full of them - it makes my head spin.
Thanks for all the great ideas you give us.
I think you are the first one to put me on your blog roll - when I figure out how to do that I will make one too!!
I am teaching my HTML so I can customize it - like you ladies have done - right now I am messing with my colors and that is just what I have done - MESSED them up - will be working on those today!!
You're wonderful!!
