Another item of interest that hit the blogosphere: The Painted Rug.
And because I have an abundance of splintery wooden decks and will always use rugs, the lightbulb went off. I’m going to paint some of the rugs that need to be replaced.

This place is crying for a makeover, one item down…fifty to go!
Stay cool and eat an orange!
