The Magic Carpet

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, this is the (in)famous Turkish carpet. It arrived without mishap, just when they said it would, which is more than I can say for some American vendors. My dad wrinkled his nose at its relatively small size, but I am quite content with it. The colors match my room and the design is intricate, but not overwhelming.
Rachel and Mark dubbed it "The Magic Carpet" and had fun incorporating it into their make-believe games for a couple days after it came. Isn't it gorgeous? (My presence in the last photograph may or may not add to its beauty...you can decide that...lol) Now I have to keep the housekeepers in Whitley from vaccuuming it to death. I'd hate to come back from class one day and discover the fringes gone or something.


  1. Rebekah,
    I just found your blog and it is great! Hopefully, some day I will have time to go to the older posts and read about your trip to Turkey and learn more about you. :-) It was fun seeing you at Park City last night. Were you able to find the shoes you were looking for?

    P.S.-Your rug is very nice. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks, I did find the shoes I wanted! I had good luck in the clearance aisle at Sears. :)

    Have a lovely afternoon.
