I’m over at Tawna’s blog today, sharing one of my favorite mantras – “buy quality and you only cry once.” Have you ever done a quick tally of everything you’ve spent on furniture and accessories that are OK for now … but not what you really want? It can be rather disheartening!
In my own home, I am pining for a new living room rug. My current shag rug was absolutely fantastic when my boys were small and prone to tumbles. Although I still like the look, I’m now afraid that the rug is harboring more than a few hidden Legos, Cheerios and other not-so-lovely things on which to step. Instead of replacing the rug with something inexpensive, however, I’m going to keep what I have until I can buy the rug I really want — the Safavieh Jaguar Rug. It’s love, and — because I won’t be happy with anything else — buying a substitute would simply be wasteful.
