TGIF - well close enough! It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I'm looking forward to my turkey dinner with all the fixin's.
We've been having the most glorious fall weather ever here, warm days and warm nights (well warmish nights... ). The fall colours have been more intense than usual and I spent some time taking photos of all the glorious colour.
When my UK friend Sarah from Down by the Seaasked if I would like to join in on the Around the World blog tour, I knew it would be tough to find bloggers who hadn't already participated in this year's blog hop. I was right... sorry folks but this blog hop dies with me. LOL So instead of the tag team blog hop that's been going on and in honour of this being an international blog tour, I'm going to share some of my go-to blogs from different countries.
With a small budget, big dreams and a love of a challenge, Anne blogs about renovating and decorating her tiny 1930s bungalow. A self-taught artist and professed power tool lover, she enjoys writing, gardening, photography, nature and diy'ing. And she's never met a dumpster she didn’t want to root through! Come along for the ride!!
I love my rugs, they cozy up a room and give it some extra depth and colour. They keep my feet warm in winter, too. I like that I can pick them up and clean underneath. Sand and dirt always fall through carpet fibers and collect underneath. I had such a rude awakening when I pulled up the wall-to-wall carpeting in one of the houses I lived in - there was so much sand underneath it was almost like a beach!!
With area rugs, you really need a carpet pad to keep the rug looking nice, to prevent the rug from slipping around and to avoid having the rug scratching and rubbing against the floor underneath it. Rug pads also help to keep thin rugs from bunching up and getting wrinkled.
What I don't love is cheap rug pads that stick to my hardwood floors and leave an icky film on them.
