Indoor/Outdoor Rugs

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I've become a fan of indoor/outdoor rugs and polypropylene  You see, I consider myself a 100% wool kind of girl.  I have to admit that when  I purchased this rug for my kitchen it was only because the border had a Greek Key design.   For a while now I've been obsessed with geometric designs, and especially with anything with a Greek key.
The rug was absolutely perfect under my kitchen table.

(If you missed the kitchen post, go here.)

Now that it has been there for a while and has been subjected to dog "mistakes", food spills, and kids,  I've become a fan.  What's not to like with something whose cleaning instructions say to clean with a mild soap and water.  I haven't tried this yet, but it can also be hosed down.

I decided that I wanted another for the food prep area of the kitchen.
Currently there's an oriental rug--also fabulous for hiding stains, but you know me and my other addiction, change ups.

I couldn't find another at the store so I went on line and found:

Outdoor Rugs Only

Here are some of the other rugs that tempted me.  I only looked in the Contemporary Rugs section, but there was a huge variety of styles.

  The 5 X 8 was only $99 with free shipping.

I love the color combination.  Other colors were available too.

This was called Arabesque.

Chains, also available in other colors.

I loved this but it was pricey.

This reminded me of a Duralee fabric.

Prices were all over the place, anywhere from $39  to hundreds of dollars.  I also want to say that I am in no way associated with or endorsing this company, just found a source to share.

I can't wait to get my rug.

Have a great weekend.  We're expecting Irene in our area.  I'm ok with rain and wind.  It's that loss of power for days that drives me crazy.
