An absolute beauty. The loveliest rug I've ever seen.

I'm also lusting after your pavers - are they just standard slabs painted. I've the ugliest patio that could certainly do with sprucing up.

I most definitely would've bid!

That's exactly the sort of thing I would buy and have everyone screwing their noses up and asking why or my dad claiming I do not know what to spend my money on!

I shouldn't have bid on the vintage straw basket at the weekend either..... A girl's got to be doing something when the weather's too bad to garden :O). That is one beautiful rug. x
