    I so enjoyed seeing the family Christmas picture. Brigette will have a good laugh about it when she’s older ;-)
    I was wondering what kind of wide angle lens you’re using for your room pics. I will have to invest in one soon.
    Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!

    Love your blog! (Just came across it today from an Apartment Therapy post.) How do you like the rug in the shared farmhouse room? Decent quality? (The price is lower than I expected!)

      Hi Sarah B.! Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I love the rug – it’s really beautiful, and I think the quality is great. It’s thicker than some other inexpensive woven rugs. The one thing I will say is that any dirt/lint/whatever that gets tracked in shows up super well because it’s such a true, rich black, so it requires frequent vacuuming if it is in a high traffic area. That is my only complaint – but other than that I love it!

      Thanks for the details! I’m willing to vacuum frequently for such a great looking rug. (Looooove it in your girls’ room!)

    I’ve admired your blog for a long time and I’m in constant awe of your talent. Excited to see what 2014 will bring! Please do tell where you got your beautiful living room rug? I’ve been on a mad hunt for something similar but have had little luck. Seriously, rug shopping causes ulcers, I’m sure of it.
