Easter is on it’s way and one way to prepare for guests are by adding  over-dyed Ziegler rugs to your home. Just as children over-dye Easter eggs, Persian weavers, dye rugs. They are made of hand spun wool and natural dyes coming from plants and insects.  Zieglers are one of the most popular style Persian rug. They are known for bringing together the visual appeal of the new and old world. Over-dyed Ziegler rugs are known for their vibrant colors with the classic Ziegler outline that shines through. eSalerugs.com is promoting these rugs for a limited time during it’s 30% off Easter sale.  Have a safe and wonderful holiday everyone!

Me vs. Mega Millions

Standard

The jackpot of the Mega Millions lottery was higher last Friday than it ever has been. $640 million could help a lot of people in today’s economy.  I think they made a mistake and I am the actually the winner…oh wait I didn’t buy a ticket nor am I in Maryland, Kansas or Ohio.  I guess that makes me an addition to all the losers/ Although I was not one of the 3 winners I thought it would be fun to dream. Here are 3  things I would do if I were to win…

1. Travel: I have always had a dream to travel the world. I’ve been to Canada and Mexico but if I had the money I would go far! I have always wanted to travel to the Greek Isles. The beautiful beaches and monuments have always sparked an interest to me. I love the Mediterranean cuisine. If only I had been one of the 3 winners, I could be sitting on a  gorgeous Greek structure eating souvlaki’s and staring at the scenery.

2. Shop: As soon as I got my winnings I would hop my happy butt on a plane to NY City and live it up! I would be like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City minus being left at the alter.  I would have so many new purses it would be insane. Along with all of my new fashion splurges, I’d of course have to get a new car, boat, and home. If you are going to win big; shop big. I can’t see myself carrying designer handbags and still drive a Honda, so yeah I think I’d have no choice but to settle for the Mercedes G-Wagon.

3. Decorate: What’s the point in buying a new home if  you don’t decorate it. I would put gorgeous art work in and silk  rugs from eSalerugs.com in every room. I would have a beautiful back porch with an inviting swing to lay on every day, since of course I wouldn’t be working. I would have my infinity pool over looking the beautiful beaches of Kauai, Hawaii.

Well I guess it’s back to reality huh?! Unfortunately I will not be living the luxurious life today, but if I work hard one day I can possibly enjoy that kind of life. Better yet, I think I’ll just buy some lottery tickets.

Change with the Season

Standard

 Today is officially the last day of winter. Time to greet the season with a little clean up.

Nothing is more exciting  to me than packing up all my scarves, boots, and sweaters  and getting out my cute summer dresses, flip-flops, and tank tops. A rule of thumb that helps me do this efficiently is as I go through my closet, I think back to the summer before and if I didn’t wear it then chances are it’s time to go. Sometimes my friends and I even get together with trash bags full of clothes and a bottle of wine and exchange outfits. With the clothes we have left over we either donate them or drop them off at the local Goodwill. It’s always fun to get to together with the girls and leave with a new wardrobe.

Another one of my favorite things about the shift to spring is giving my apartment a new look. I typically make a weekend of it. As I  clean every inch of my home, I love to rearrange my furniture.  Adding cute plants, pictures, and rugs are a great way to refresh your home just in time for spring. Places like eSalerugs.com and Ikea always have awesome deals.

These are just a couple of  fun things I like to do to transition into a  refreshing new season.

Patio Party

Standard

As we say good-bye to winter and hello to warmer weather, let’s take it to the patio!  Whether reading a magazine or hosting a-cook out, create an ambience that is inviting.  Let’s face it, cute  outdoor furniture is easy to find, but a a cute rug to match can be difficult. Wooden rugs are a great way to add to the decor of an outdoor area.  eSalerugs.com has a great selection of rugs to put on the porch.  Let eSalerugs.com prepare your patio for the summer.
