A few more COVETS.....

I am SOOO bad...

I guess I don't really COVET since I don't want THEIRS......
I just want one LIKE theirs.
(I can remember this lesson so well from my mama...
she told me from the time I can remember to
NEVER want what someone else had...
but that it was alright to want one LIKE it.
and my mama seldom, if ever, steered me wrong.

Sooo....I've worked it out in my mind that I am ALLOWED to want 
one LIKE another blogger might have.

.....for instance....

 HOW IN THE WORLD could a person NOT want one of these
adorable and oh-so-popular 

 Why, I've never been so totally knee-deep in LUV..
Of course, every single thing that SUZAN does is sooo stinkin' cute
that I stay in a HYPERVENTILATING MODE the whole time
I am visiting her blog.
I almost have to lie down for a short nap.....

Well, believe me....nothing would do but that 
I HAVE A RUG.....just like hers.
(now remember....I am not wanting HER rug....
just one LIKE it...  so I' m not sinfully CONVENTING her rug...)

Yes, ma'am....
I bought myself and my girl one of these classy rugs...
and then I walked around my house for 15 hours..... trying to think where to put it....

.....a STAR

O, YES.....

Does it look like a MOVIE STAR to you....???
...sooo stinkin' cute looks amazing thrown across a table top...

...a cabinet

The added texture is awesome...

 Suzan used one of her rugs for covering a vintage bench....

She has the most adorable business of buying olden pieces and bringing them into a whole new life....

Be sure to visit her and she can show you tricks with painting you never thought of.....

More fun playing with this furry thing..

I threw it across my vintage cedar chest and it's not nearly as pretty there
as HERS on her WHITE table..(I'd LIKE to covet her white table but I won't )

so....maybe I need to paint my olden chest....uh....CEDAR chest, that is.


it looks pretty great, on the floor in a corner beneath
black and white framed family photos.....
SHE ordered her rugs from IKEA but they were out of stock
when I tried.
So, I skipped right on over to AMAZON, typed in faux sheep skin rug and
up they popped.


  1. Well, that was fun finding a place for your new faux fur rug. I enjoy Suzan's blog so much and she's Canadian like me. :) She's a very talented and funny lady isn't she? She does some amazing things with furniture and paint! I hope you have a great week BJ.

  2. So fluffy and fun!! I nike it in all the places you placed it - have fun playing with it!!

  3. Ooolala!!! Loving your soft and comfy white rug!!! And it's yours!!!

  4. How clever you are. I am loving that white rug, hum wonder how one would look in my house? just to let you know I talked about you today. Hope you don't mind.

  5. The way you described your hyperventilating was so funny. I love what you did with yours too. My daughter loves those, and she throws one of them on her bed for her kitty. xoxo

  6. I think it can be used in many ways, for sure, as you have shown us. Very unusual twist to decorating.

  7. Covet? Did you say covet? Well, I hate to admit it but I do too. You know my little mother told me the same thing! So... :) Well, the fuzzy rug looks wonderful and I'm glad you're happy. I must tell you, each time I pop over for a visit - you've got another pretty header up! Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. Ahhhh...I remember the days when I had a real sheepskin. Loved that thing and, since I used it on my hassock, it felt so good on my bare feet. LOL...Yours looks more groomed than mine.

  9. So glad that you found your rug and it looks terrific. Yes, Suzan does beautiful work.
    Have a great week BJ. Hopew your husband is feeling much better now.

  10. Oh, I just want to rest my cheek on it's sweet softness. Loving your pairings with the photo frames.

  11. Jean, I love it soft and feminine. What a great accessory.

  12. Oh I've been loving those sheepskin rugs for a long time and I know what you mean about trying to figure out where to put it. I love where you placed yours, though. It looks nice there, but then again, it looked nice in the other places, too because it's just so pretty. When I finally got one, I ended up putting it in the living room across the piano bench.

    Have a great week, BJ... :)

  13. Every time I see those sheepskin rugs at Costco, I want one, bj. Yours looks so pretty and looks very luxurious. I'd love to wiggle my toes in it! I'm sure you'll think up all kinds of ways to use that gorgeous rug!

  14. Suzan is amazing! She has such talent along with a wonderful sense of humor. :)

    I bought one of those rugs some time ago at Walmart! Now, I've walked around for eleventy-something days and still haven't figured out a landing spot for it. Why don't you come over and help me?

    P.S. Stop by ~ have a giveaway!

  15. P.S. Someone's President doesn't care ~ :/ Such a frightening situation with so much loss and damage. Makes me sick! My nephew and his family live there...pray for their safety please.

  16. Oh- I LOVE it, bj. For a minute there I thought I had fallen right into Suzan's blog. Doncha just LOVE her? We have been blogging buddies since I first started blogging--or she started, that is. xo Diana

  17. Oh my, your faux sheepskin is truly gorgeous! I think it looks great in every photo.
    Have a great day!

  18. Love your faux sheepskin rug. It looked good everywhere you put it. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  19. WOW! Yes, it does look like a movie star. Hollywood glam. Love!
    And mama knows best. :)

  20. Hi bj. LOVE this furry thing too and you have shared it in so many wonderful ways. Yes, having this makes you a star too!!! My mother said the same thing. They always know best right?
    Have a grand day and be blessed.
    Love your pic at the top. So true!!
    Hugs, CM

  21. Wow it just luxuriates LUXURY! It is so gorgeous! Lucky you!

  22. Looking pretty classy . . .
    Made me remember the sheepskin I purchased in Scotland years ago . . .
    Maybe I should pull that out of the trunk and see what decorative tricks I can come up with . . .
    MAYBE . . .

  23. We don't have any IKEAs here

  24. Yeah, but wanting one of those rugs on a table just LIKE hers....understandable!! Now I'm righteously wanting both. Who wouldn't?! ;)
    Love the creative ways you display yours too!!

  25. Hey, Baby, I think your taste is spot on, and the bible says thy neighbors wife or xxss or anything that is thy neighbors... She lives purty far piece from Texas! So you are good! That rug is awesome. I might just have to covet me one, too!

  26. Hey bj ... don't we all covet/want/copy what we see that appeals to us? Glad you found what you coveted. Suzan is so talented ... she makes me want to copy her too. Just wish I had a little bit of her talent. Your sheepskin looks great anywhere you put it. I am sure you will find the perfect place for it. Enjoy.

  27. You've placed your sheepskin just perfectly...


  28. It looks so soft and cuddly that if it were big enough (and it would have to be pretty big!) I'd curl up on it and take a nap! Zzzzzzz.

  29. Oh BJ, you are simply the cutest! Your new rug looks fabulous in your home and I am so glad you are enjoying it. Blogging is so beautiful, don't you think? Because of our blogging friends we are inspired and motivated....Susan simply inspired you with the sheep rug :)

    Thank you so much for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. It's always a joy to have you at the party. Hugs!

  30. How beautiful! We get so many ideas from each other. And you both have such style....beautiful style! Enjoy your afternoon sweet friend. Hugs, Diane
