  1. You did leave something out….my invitation to come sit in there! Love it. So you. Perfect. :) Lisa~

  2. I love that rug. I have been eying one similar at RugsUSA… just need to pull the trigger.

    • I was very happy with it. It’s hard to order something like that online (expensive plus a crazy color), but it worked out well. Watch for sales – they have good ones! Just know that it might take 2 months to get to you…like it did me.

  3. I can’t wait until we move and I can get my home office space back.

    • It’s definitely a life saver. It’s nice to have a place that I can close the door and walk away from “work.” I just wish that I did that every once in a while. :)
