Adventures in Rugs and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!



      I have a thing about shower mats. I CANNOT stand wet ones, even though that is their purpose. I'm like a cat with wet feet when I step on one; I really cannot even express how much I hate it.  So, when I saw a kind of mat at my mother in law's house that felt dry, even when wet, you better believe I was all about getting one! Only one problem, the store didn't have black! I need black, because the rest of the bathroom accessories are black. After glowering darkly for a while at the lacking a black rug shelf, I finally selected a blah looking tan one.


     See? Totally blah. Having an ungodly amount of hoarded craft supplies pays off during emergencies such as this...at least, that's what I tell myself. I whipped out a stencil and some black fabric paint, and fixed this baby right up.


      Much better! Yes, that is a smudge next to the "F"...I'm not too worried about it. It is a bath mat after all. Seriously though, how much better is that!


     Okey dokey, now that you are totally awed...let me awe you further! Christmas is the time for giving right, so its about time we did some of that around here! As my thank you to all you wonderful readers, I want to give you any item of your choice out of my Etsy shop!


 The only thing that this excludes is the "made to order" listings. Anything else is fair game.

Have a stupendous Wednesday! =)
