    Okay, Gigi, I have a tie for my two favorites…..the moon and the footprints. I did have a great chuckle at the two funny ones. And I have just one question about the puzzle rug, do you have to assemble it yourself? Good luck on your rug/carpet search. I bet you’ll find something fun AND practical.

    hello bri,

    i love the photo of the moon with the moon boots on it – those guys are so funny. and i agree about the footprint rug too.

    yes you do have to put the puzzle carpet together! it’s made of interlocking rubber pieces and you can create your own unique patterns… a highly interesting idea don’t you think?

    for now we are sticking with the hardwood. the dogs slip and slide around when they try to get up, so maybe if we just get them shoes instead we can leave it bare. 🙂

    glad to see you as always!

    I love your blog and check it regularly. I think the rugs are fantastic – my favourite is the brushwood, but it would be a nightmare to clean! I also dig the manuscript one. I can’t understand a word it says… maybe a good thing!

    hi vivien,

    i completely agree with you about brushwood! i think maybe if you have a hose attachment you could really give it a good clean, but then the fibers might get twisted by the wind. hmmm…

    did you see the similarly fabulous tord boontje rug here? i love these concepts but in my house they might look better hanging on a wall! 🙂

    on the other hand, the manuscript one could work… hmmmm…

    thanks for the comment and the visit – i am very happy to see you!
