It is time to buy a large area rug for the dining room.
I've been looking several places and have my choices narrowed down. The front runners are all at Overstock.com.
I've never ordered anything like this from them - only bed linens.
I'm a bit nervous.
But you can't beat the $2 shipping - especially on something as large and bulky as a 6'X9' rug.
So I'm wondering if anyone out there has ever ordered anything large like a rug or furniture from Overstock.com? How'd it work out for you? Were you happy with your purchase? Were the colors true to the picture? Because that is my biggest concern - that I'll love it on my computer screen and it will get here and instead of being soft and understated - it will be graphic and bright. Or the colors will be primary rather than muted. Ah well - maybe it's time to face my fears - right?
Yesterday we spent all day outside. We went to Brickfest - a little yearly festival here in our town. Then we came home and worked in the backyard gardens.
Yesterday I planted
(these were in addition to the regular Thyme, Dill, Rosemary, Basil, and Cilantro I already have going)
(I already have my tomatoes in the ground)
6 large pots of flowers in the back on the patio
3 for the front porch
and 2 hanging baskets for the back (I fill them full of flowers and hang them from our trees in the backyard)
I had the best fun doing it.
Now I have to finish the front flower beds and transplant some things. Oh and 1 more flower bed in the backyard that is around the base of our large Sycamore tree. I'm transplanting a TON of Irises in there and adding 2 more Hostas. Should be a busy day.
