Home is Where the Heart Is

It’s hard to believe we have lived in our home for going on 10 years now. We’ve toyed with the idea of moving now and again which sometimes held us back from redecorating. We kept coming back to the fact that there is just no place like home. And, though this house will never be exactly perfect (it has been a great house to grow into but we are approaching the day we will outgrow it but I don’t want to talk about it), I have finally embraced the idea that it needs to be cozy right now.

That’s why when we decided to redo the family room space (again). I decided it was out with the oh so comfy and oh so dirty shag carpet (has anyone figured out how to vacuum one successfully?!). I may have mentioned this before but I have dust mite allergies and the minute I set foot on that old rug, I could feel them creeping into my sinuses (gross). We have had so much luck with our washable rug care of Lorena Canals Rugs (read more here) so when we looked at redecorating I knew that’s what I wanted.

Since we homeschool (though we’re considering options for next year- I just can’t decide), I thought this world map pattern was perfect. And, it is. The kids love playing on it, sitting on it, rolling on it. When they’ve fully filled it with crumbs, I simply shake it out and throw it in the washer. Good as new. After so much success with Lorena Canals, I decided to try one of their accent pillows as well. The heart shape is perfect for our oh so comfy for us home. It doubles as a comfy floor cushion for sitting and playing on and as a plus it’s also washable (everything from Lorena Canals is).

I know that eventually this house will no longer comfortably hold all of us. Until then, rearranging a little furniture and a fabulous new rug makes our house a little more cozy. And, that’s a lot to love.

Stay tuned for my favorite Easter Basket Stuffers. These Bla Bla dolls are a good choice with their hand knit details and cuddly designs. Go check out the whole line including some cuddly Easter Bunnies! We love gifting our children with pieces they can pass down to their littles one day and handcrafted stuffies are perfect for that.
