Décor: Wall Rug

Kevin and I have been married for 27 years, and he has only surprised me three times.  The first was about 6 years ago when he said he wanted to go to a dude ranch for vacation.  The next was a year or two later when he wanted to buy an old Dodge Charger to restore, and the last time happened this year on vacation-he wanted to buy a handmade Turkish rug. 

I was hesitant, because although I wanted one, we have a dog who has food allergies.  The problem is that when Emmie eats something she shouldn’t, she gets sick, usually on a rug.  It would kill me to see a work of art ruined, especially a hand-made rug due to the artistry, time and effort involved.

We solved the problem by buying a smaller rug and hanging it on the wall above the dining room fireplace.  Though not as traditional as placing a rug on the floor, hanging it allows you to enjoy it on a daily basis without the worries of pet stains.  

By the way, we had a fabulous vacation at the Rainbow Trout Dude Ranch and yes, Kevin is restoring his Dodge Charger.
