Doormat Upgrade

Over the weekend, an impromptu trip with a friend to one of my favorite places, Marshalls (TJ Maxx, HomeGoods... same company and I could curl up and live in any one of them) scored me the awesome area rug below for the front entryway for just $19.99. I kinda have a thing for paisley and the colors in this are divine- the blue of the living room, the red of the front door.

Its WORLDS better than the cheapy one (to the right) I got a few months back from the same place for just a few bucks- ravaged by the vacuum and cat hair (no matter how much I cleaned it), it had seen better days.

The new one makes me smile every time I walk down the stairs.  With the new paisley rug and the best light ever, the small area that is the entry way is turning into a very happy place.
