All because of a rug...

Hello Friends!!!!

I know the title may be a bit misleading if you think that that  is the reason for my being M.I.A. on the blogosphere! NO, definitely not. Instead of giving you details of why that is so, let's just say that "Life Happens", and with my kids at home and my mom visiting, life just gets darn busy! At least it wasn't anything bad right?!

The good news is that I have not stopped working around the house with little projects of ours and so I will be sharing them with you in the coming weeks,  and I hope I will be able to visit you on your blog soon!

Posted this on IG last week
Ok, so now on with this post!

I was very lucky enough to collaborate from the wonderful Rug Company called SUKHI ! In Nepalese, the word "Sukhi" means "Happy", and I can guarantee you, based on my experience with their company, that that is the exact feeling you'll get when you receive one of their products!

SUKHI is probably the best source for Hand-made rugs from Nepal, Morocco, India and Turkey. The company boasts of the low cost of these types of rugs because the get them directly from the source! Plus, they can custom-make them for you in whatever colors you like! Awesome right?!

So when I got my Nina Nepalese Ball rug (which you can buy HERE) from them to try out, it didn't reach the nursery right away since my daughter enjoyed playing on it so much!

When it finally made it to the nursery, I was at a loss as to where to put it?

By the toddler bed?

By the rocker?

Area rug for my daughters table set?

If you noticed too, I again switched the beds position! The RUG started this snowball of changes in the nursery since I guess, it was about time too! I think I should stop calling this the nursery since technically, this is now a TODDLER ROOM!

Removed the Nursery Rhyme art here before and changed it to these cute Black and White wall art from Hobby Lobby.

I also added these awesome $3 decals from TARGET on the lower half of the walls for some learning fun with my daughter!

Learning is best at Eye-level I think ;-)
 See? All these changes all because of my lovely new rug from SUKHI (and of course my growing baby - sniff, sniff)!

Thank you Sarita for making this BEAUTIFUL SUKHI RUG!!!! We absolutely love it!
This is SARITA, the lovely lady who made my lovely rug

So in the end, the rug now sits perfectly by the bed...

Soft on the feet and good enough for me to sit on as I lull her at times to sleep...
There you have it, a lot of changes in the Nursery all because of a rug! I almost forgot to mention, these hand-made rugs, since they come directly from the makers, has a huge social impact on the lives of this women. Watch this video and see..

I am just absolutely smitten. And for sure, once another need for a rug pops up in our household, you guys know where I'll be looking! ;-)

Have a Great Week!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
