Children's Rugs

I don't know about you, but this whole adulthood thing has hit me pretty hard. The long hours. All the responsibility. Not being off for three months in the summer.

But one of the worst things about being an adult is being of the wrong age for children's rugs. Which have come one heck of a long way since I was a child, according to what I found on the Rosenberry Rooms site (above).

And that's not all. Have you heard of Shelly Kennedy's Drooz Studio? If you're a parent with a sense of whimsey, you may want to check them out.

Children or not (in my case, not), my dream house will have just the right place for the Drooz Studio "Pretend" rug, below. Perhaps just below the sunny window seat where I while away my morning reading something not too serious but extraordinarily good.

After all, a girl can dream, can't she?

At last decent kid's rugs. There are some horrors over here in the UK.

Who says you have to be a kid to appreciate these? Goodness knows, when I was the target age for these rugs, I did have beautiful things in my room and only had a vague sense of how lucky I was. That last rug is just fantastic - I want it for myself!

di, believe me, there are plenty of horrific ones here, too! I was just at Pamida (kind of like a WalMart, but less well-run), and yikes--UGLY!

ma vie en rose, I agree completely! I want that one too--and some day hope to have that "dream home" with everything I want in it :)
