Finally, A New Rug and A Blog Update!

Did y'all notice my new blog design? Oh my word...it was the longest day of my life trying to figure this out. Thank goodness my son got home from school a few hours early so he could help me. :) He pretty much did everything for me. I just picked the pictures. 

I also changed my font size from normal to large. I'm having trouble keeping it on "large" though. It keeps wanting to refer back to "normal." I tried changing it to large a few months ago and it kept going back to normal and I got frustrated with it and gave up. Maybe I can figure it out this time. I also changed my picture size from medium to x-large. I know the post title is kind of light in color, but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about that without messing with codes and that scares me. Ha! Hope y'all like the changes. :)

Now for the new rugs:

We've had the same rugs by our front and back doors for about 13 years. It was definitely time to update them. :) Here's our old rug by the front door:



It was just a little too dark for me.


It was also kind of small for this space.

And here's the old rug by the back door. Sorry about the blurry pic with the shadows.




And here's the new rug by the back door. It still had the tag on it when I took this pic. Again with the shadows...sorry.


And here's the new one by the front door. It matches the one by the back door. It's just bigger.

I love it! I think it goes perfectly with my everyday decor and will also coordinate with my fall and Christmas decor. I like the bigger size too.

Here's a close up of the pattern. It's really soft on your feet too.

 


 I seem to keep the same decor around for years and years, then all of a sudden, I can't stand it and want to replace everything at once. :)  Do y'all go through phases like that too?

Y'all check back Friday when I'll be sharing some changes I made to my pantry door. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Oh I just love your new rugs! They really are the perfect color combo for your home. Isn't it fun to make a small change that has a big impact? And, yes I do go through different decorating phases and want to change things out all at once. Right now, I'm not wanting to change though. I've worked too hard to accumulate everything that I have and don't want to start all over now. LOL! But, I have been there before plenty of times!

  4. I LOVE your new blog design! Thank goodness for your son, right? I could never do something like this alone either!

    These are great rugs. I have been looking for one for the front door and everything is too dark or too light. It frustrates me that I can't pick out something so simple!!

    Have a great day!

  6. Love the new blog look, and your font and picture size are perfect. I like having large pictures and not having to click here and there to see bigger views. The new rugs are wonderful -- so bright and cheerful!

  7. Lisa, I love your new blog design! Looks wonderful! Love to view the large pictures and large font. Lately it seems I am having a little tiny trouble with the small font on some blogs. LOL Yes, I am in denial! :) Your new rugs are beautiful! The color and pattern is so pretty.
