~ORC challenge week 2~

Why did I decide to do this?
No really, I needed a deadline to make this one happen!

This week in the one room challenge its's all about the products being used.
I am doing this whole room on a super tight budget, so thrift stores and discount shops are my new best friend.

I ordered this cowhide from Wayfair.
It's so pretty that I don't want to use it down in the basement, but I suppose I will.

I am going to layer it on these rugs.
I am not putting down new floors. The floors will stay concrete so I got area rugs that are large enough to cover most of the ugly floor.
Like I said, doing this on a budget.

I ordered a 8x10 and a 5x8.

One of these will cozy up a corner….

After visiting my friend Jill, I am seriously contemplating getting one or two of these:

I bought a wad of this fabric and am having the talented Tonic Living create me a custom bench seat for our reading nook, which was previously a closet.
They made a cushion cover for the last ORC challenge I was a part of.
You can see that here.

Underneath the bench will be storage I made out of 20 of  these crates, and they will be filled with old books.

This week I hope to get some walls planked and painted and rip the carpet off the stairs!
I will be putting down this striped Dash And Albert runner.
I have wanted to use this forever and now I have an excuse!

I also want to frame a bunch of Crystal Lake 
{for those of you new to my blog, Crystal Lake is where we live}

That's it for now! To start from week 1, go here.
I will be back with another update next Thursday!

I have that dash & Albert rug in my kitchen. It'll look great as a runner on your stairs.

I love everything you've picked so far! I can't wait to see it all together!

I have that Ikea book shelf and could not be happier. It now comes in RED! It is a good size and sturdy enough to hold lots of books and looks more expensive than it is.

The Hindu religion has three basic practices. They are puja or worship, the cremation of the dead, and the rules and regulations of the caste system. Hinduism is not a proselytizing religion since you cannot be converted: you’re either born a Hindu or you’re not. Significant differences exist within this Hindu majority, arising not only out of divisions of caste, but also out of differing religious beliefs. One great divide is between devotees of the god Vishnu and devotees of the god Shiva. There are also Hindus who are members of reform movements that began in the 19th century.
The most significant of these is perhaps the Arya Samaj, which rejects divisions of caste and idol worship. Hindus may come together also as devotees of a guru, such as Sai Baba. Despite its differences, the Hindu community shares many things in common. Islam- there are more than 100 million Muslims in India (approximately 12% of the population), making it one of the largest Muslim nations on earth. Muslims are a more urban community than Hindus. There are many towns and cities in northern India where Muslims are one-third or more of the population. In addition to Jammu and Kashmir and the Lakshadweep islands, where more than two-thirds of the population is Muslim, major concentrations of Muslims live in Assam, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, and Kerala states. About one-quarter of all Muslims living in India live in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Muslim influence in India is particularly strong in the fields of architecture, art and food. Buddhism- Buddhism was founded in northern India in about 500 BC, spread rapidly when emperor Ashoka embraced it but was gradually reabsorbed into Hinduism. Today Hindus regard the Buddha as another incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. There are now only 6.6 million Buddhists in India, but important Buddhist sites in northern India, such as Bodhgaya, Sarnath (near Varanasi) and Kushinagar (near Gorakhpur) remain important sites of pilgrimage.
Jain- The Jain religion also began life as an attempt to reform Brahmin cal Hinduism. It emerged at the same time as Buddhism, and for many of the same reasons. The Jains now number only about 4.5 million and are found predominantly in the west and southwest of India. The religion has never found adherents outside India. Jains believe that the universe is infinite and was not created by a deity. They also believe in reincarnation and eventual spiritual salvation by following the path of the Jain prophets. Sikhs- The Sikhs in India number 18 million and are predominantly located in the Punjab. The religion was originally intended to bring together the best of Hinduism and Islam. Its basic tenets are similar to those of Hinduism with the important modification that the Sikhs are opposed to caste distinctions. The holiest shrine of the Sikh religion is the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Other- approximately 3% of the population is Christian and there are also a few small Jewish communities in ex-colonial enclaves. India’s population is rich with diverse ethnic and cultural groups. Ethnic groups are those based on a sense of common ancestry, while cultural groups can be either made up of people of different ethnic origins who share a common language, or of ethnic groups with some customs and beliefs in common, such as castes of a particular locality. The diverse ethnic and cultural origins of the people of India are shared by the other peoples of the Indian subcontinent, including the inhabitants of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Sri Lanka. People of India – The overwhelming majority of India’s population shares essentially the same physical characteristics. There is no concrete scientific evidence of racial differences within this majority, although there are ethnic and cultural differences, such as language and religion. Tribal Groups. There are also groups of people in India that have been identified by the government as tribal, meaning they belong to one of the more than 300 officially designated “scheduled tribes”.
