New Favorite Thing: Dash and Albert Rugs

Well, readers, I think at last these are the end of the "home" posts! Hubs and I finally have a table to eat and blog on, and with it I went searching for a simple rug to add color to the kitchen. Why are most (cheap) rugs so ugly? I just wanted some simple vibrant colors in a non-garish design....and apparently that was a tall order, sheesh.

Then I came upon Dash & Albert's line of woven cotton rugs. There are a million different color and pattern options, many sizes, all in do-able prices. Huzzah! You can see their website here.

I selected the Montana Stripe, 4x6 for under our table. I wanted something that wouldn't show any stains and match the deeper colors we have in our apartment, along with the darker BJURSTA table we selected at Ikea (now $149 and expands with built in leaf!). Here is the result:

The rug also came super fast with ground shipping. Was great to finally have things tied together!

What do you think? Happy Thanksgiving Week!

Swoonworthy Tortoise--TB Revas

Oh my. Just dropping in to show you these new Tory Burch resort Revas that are now on I love tortoiseshell--I have a great Michael Kors tortoise watch and many JCrew tortoise hair accessories. I love the tones of black and brown together and the classic preppy look it has.

Check these out! Squeal...

Brown version....

Love them!

You can find these and pre-order them here.

I have just recently gotten the TB Revas in black on ebay, I previously had the orange suede version that I found on sale. I think they are a nice polish flat look. Now how to avoid buying these new ones!

What do you think??
