~misc. stuff and a winner~

I got a new rug for the living room.
I've always wanted a zebra hide, but couldn't see spending that much money.
So when I stopped into a friends new shop called,
The Well Dressed Home
 {she's on Bothell Way for all my local readers}
and saw a zebra-ish rug for $48, I knew it was meant to be.
I layered it on top of the jute rug and I am really loving it.
 I also stopped into Pottery Barn and picked up
that I've been eyeing for quite some time.
They are on sale right now.

 In an attempt to keep the puppy off the couch after he's been swimming in the lake, 
I added a gazillion pillows.
My name is Melaine and I hoard pillows.
 My daughter stole my fancy ones from Spark Modern for her own room, so I piled on a random assortment, no rhyme or reason.

 And finally, the winner of the dress giveaway at
Tessa Jones!
Check your inbox, and have fun picking out your dress!

I love the rug! It's great how you can mix animal prints with flowers and have it all look so well together. The pillows looks great, mine would end up on the floor!

The pillows! So funny! My husband is always asking what the point of a couch is if there are so many pillows on it that you can't even sit?! Love them all!

Chris Salek said...

I can't get my puppy (8 month old chocolate lab0 to stop grabbing the pillows. We are actually pillowless in the house !!

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about
creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

Stop by my blog :: similar web-site

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw
away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
could be giving us something enlightening to read?
