Kill / Steal: Persian Khorasan Rug

I was checking out One Kings Lane Beneath the Feet rug sale, and my jaw nearly dropped when I spotted a Persian Khorasan rug on sale for $1169.  I would kill to have a beautiful Persian rug.  However, my pockets currently do not run that deep.

Kill:  One Kings Lane (sold out)


Instead, I scavenge Craigslist as though I am in search for a long lost family member until I find the identical twin that I always hoped for. Now, I'm not always successful, but there are times when I come across amazing steals!!!  Take for instance this nearly identical Persian that I scored on Craigslist for only $100!!

 

Steal:  Craigslist Find (Doylestown)


I'm hoping that I can find a way to modernize something so traditional like this rug by incorporating more contemporary furnishings.  I have not been able to find an inspiration photo that I really like, so I'll be working on a mood board to help direct my attention.  Any ideas on how to make this piece work in a contemporary living space?  Have you used a Persian rug in your home?  I would love to hear / see what you came up with.

Lil' Peanut Baby Shower

It's been a crazy hot mess around here, but I thought I would share with you what we have accomplished during this heat! Ok, really it's just an update on the Little Peanut themed baby shower. 

So go ahead a take a peek...

In this video you will see the invitation which I modified from a free template and a thank you card which I designed.  By the way, sorry for the poor video quality.  This is my first time creating a video, so be kind.  I swear it looks top notch from my video player.   We'll save Video 101 for another day.
