A New Foyer Rug


Thanks to a very generous giveaway from Darlene, at Our Creative Life, I now have a snazzy new rug for our foyer. I jumped up and down with glee when I found out I had won this giveaway and quickly decided what I wanted, a black 4’ round rug with a zebra monogram. And I just love, love, love it! Thank you again, Darlene, for your generosity. It amazes me at the things that are given away in blogland and I’ve been fortunate enough to win several great prizes. But, I have to say, this one is the best so far!


It’s a perfect fit for our foyer.


What a way to welcome guests.


How do you like it? Me, I’m in love with it. Go and visit Darlene’s online store if you’d like a custom rug of your own.

Stop back by tomorrow! I’m ready to show off that newly painted dining room. I think you’re gonna love it.

  14. Darlene - Our Creative Life says:

    The rug looks great Rhoda! We are thrilled that you are happy with it! As you know it was the first time we used animal print for an initial inlay. It turned out great, so now we will offer initial inlays in zebra & leopard print. If anyone is interested in an animal print initial inlay rug..contact us at: darlene@creativecarpetdesign.com
    We don't have them on our website as of yet.

  15. Love the new rug and what a oh so generous gift to be bestowed to you. Bloggers are the most loving, kind and generous people I have ever encountered. I got my new foyer rug and area rugs this weekend also so I share in a kinshipm excitement with you. It gives such a refreshing uplift to a room.

    Hi Rhoda,
    The rug is perfect for the area. I’ll have to check out her site!

    I look forward to seeing you dining room.


  17. What a beautiful rug! I love it! It looks great!!

    I have a question, so you happen to know where the website is that you can make the boards to try to plan colors and things for a room? I know you do a lot of decor and I just wondered if you have done that. I have seen it on a blog somewhere and I can’t remember where!
    I would love if you could come check out my blog and scroll down to see my bedroom and help me figure out a color or a new scheme. I can’t spend a lot but I need advice!
    Thanks! 🙂

  18. Tres chic!

  33. Oh Rhoda I love it! CONGRATS there girlie! 🙂 LOVE IT!
    Speaking of that new room you’re working on……
    I’m just wondering HOW that molding would do on DOORS? LOL I have some blah and I DO MEAN BLAH doors in my WHOLE HOUSE! As you know I am working on that beachy master bedroom of mine right now and I would love to make my doors look nicer! They’re those old wooden doors that are hollow inside and very plain! I was wondering if I could use the small molding and make the squares on the doors. Anyway playing around with that idea! LOL

  34. Great rug! Gonna have to show this to my sisters-in-law who will definitely love it too. Can’t wait to see your painted dining room. Blessings, Sharon

  35. Woo Hooness, Rhonda! Congratulations on winning the wonderful rug!! It’s you and looks wonderful in your entry!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  39. Amber Schmidt says:

  40. love the rug! and i don’t mind saying that i am jealous…..i tell you, i have never won anything on a blog giveaway – ever! i think it’s because i don’t have a blog so they don’t pick me…..maybe i should start one? at least so i can win things!

  41. Rhoda, it's simply "you!" Looks fantastic!
