New finds

I've been needing a runner for our bedroom for sometime now, and thankfully Marshalls pulled through for me yesterday. They have some fantastic rugs there right now ( quite a few are being clearanced, lots of trellis, lots of large florals )
I came home with this guy for $49, not a bad price for wool. I love love this rug. I wish they had several sizes.


You might remember that I had this DIY shade up that I did last year:
FAIL.
However, because of the amount of heat that came through that window ( west side ) It melted the glue, last summer, breaking the plastic mini blinds underneath the delicate linen fabric. It was a major fail. I frantically went to all my other roman shades and put fresh glue on them. I ended up just buying bamboo shades for like $14 at JCP. I'll be adding drapes in the next few weeks.

Moving on.

I have been looking for a couple cheap white soup tureens for bulbs this spring. (centerpiece for the table, and for the kitchen counter )
They arent cheap.
But I got lucky and found this lil guy for $3 on clearance at a thrift store. Score!
What am I growing you might ask?
Onions.
The green onions that you buy at your grocery store. Just submerge the roots in water after you chop them, and they'll grow 1/2 inch a day. The growth you see above? That's about a week's growth.
