CSN Stores Rug Review

Honestly, I didn't mean to leave you in blog-space. I meant to post sooner, but it has been a busy and wonderful summer. Where have I been?

Yale Commencement in CT
tons of tennis
Taylor Swift Concert,ND State Fair

Thanks for all the great suggestions on the rug. I ended up going with a rug that I hadn't pictured for all of you. The main reason I went with this particular rug is that it is an indoor/outdoor rug and can be washed by hosing it down. With two dogs, (and will be getting another one in two weeks!), being able to easily clean the rug is a must. Another reason is that the rug is black and cream and can be easily used in the new sun room, (stay tuned).

I was THRILLED when I received the rug. It came wrapped in plastic, and safely packaged. The texture, feel, weaving- all perfect. I think it works well in the kitchen dining room and adds to the eclectic feel of my home. If you need a rug, I suggest you visit

Update: I've chosen white textured sheers for the formal dining room. I'll have pics up soon!
I hope all of you have had a great summer.

Wow- from Yale commencement to Detroit Lakes- that's quite a range. I've never been to Yale, but I love Detroit Lakes, and the lakes in Ottertail County- I can hardly believe summer is 2/3 over...

What a beautiful rug!!!

Hello Victoria,
Little House on the Prairie was my favorite show when I was a little girl too. I wonder if we're the same age?

I'm sorry you had a bad day yesterday and I hope that today has ben better.
Thank you for stopping by my Blog and leaving such sweet comments.

I will be putting up another post as SOON as I can get my hands on Romantic Homes Magazines Annual Bed and Bathroom issue, which has featured my Pillows in it.

Have a great week,

The rug is just lovely - but I love your beautiful curtains. The whole room is wonderful.

Hi Ele, I love that rug and did when I first saw it. It looks really great and to be able to hose it down is a huge plus.

Sounds like you are having a great summer and doing lots of fun stuff.
Have a great evening.

PERFECT! Ele, you have THE EYE! Really! If you had DESCRIBED that rug and said it was what you were planning to use, I'd have thought, "No WAY!" But it's absolutely R-I-G-H-T! Yep, my dear, elegant friend - you DEFINITELY have an eye for all things tasteful & WONDERFUL!
