Rooster Rug

100_9776After being in my home for just over a year now, I finally purchased some area rugs. I ordered them from JC Pennys and they have excellent service. What do you think of my rooster rug? I like the colors. The green on my walls is called Svelte Sage.

Rooster Rug with Svelte Sage paintI quilt too and made the wall hanging. And — made the floral arrangement on the table.

Paint Tobacco Road @ like the new rug for the family room because it does not compete with the decor and does not shout at ya. It has a gingko leaf around the outside edge. My walls are the color Tobacco Road.

100_9786That’s the view out my morning room window. A morning room is like a keeping room. When it’s cold in the rest of the house, you can warm this room quickly with the fireplace that is on the opposite wall. It’s a keeping room cause it keeps your husband comfy till supper is ready. Keeping rooms used to be traditional in homes of the South. They were easier to heat and cool than having to make the whole house comfy. We spend quite a bit of time in this room. It is between the garage snd the kitchen. When I’m done decorating it—I’ll show ya. The rug for this room is on order. It’s got a garden theme imagine that?

I’m not at my computer full time this week. You are welcome to leave a comment and I’ll most likely read them next week. This week’s post will be posted automatically by my wordpress calendar.

    Love the rooster rug and it looks like nice quality too. Your home looks cozy and warm and comfortable, ” like take your shoes off and stay a while!” You told us the paint colors but not brand, unless I missed something in my reading of your post. I’ve got a lot of yard statues and don’t know how to use them effectively in the flower beds. Wished you were here to help me with that or I could give you some of them. My favorite is a woman that looks like she is pouring water from a pitcher(maybe it is supposed to be pitcher of wine? Lol! We get our statues at Pumpkin World in Hummelstown, Pa. Great selection and half the price we’d pay here. Pumpkin World is 1/4 mile from where the in-laws and a lot of relatives on husband’s side are buried. Have a two piece birdbath that it takes my husband and I both to lift it off when we need to empty the rainfall from it. It could crush one’s foot very easily or a finger or hand.

    I love your rooster rug. It reminds me of my grandmother’s house. She loved to collect roosters — cookie jars, figurines, all kinds of things.

    I’d be spending lots of time in that keeping room too — even if the hubby was there!! šŸ˜‰ The view out the window is exquisite. Also love the rugs you chose – I need to buy them for both of my kids rooms soon, so maybe I’ll look at Penneys.

    I especially like the paint color in the breakfast room. Looks very similar to my living room color. Good greens are not always easy.
