A Vintage Style Rug For The Entry

Good Morning and Welcome Back!
I have been really off my posting schedule I know....
I am happy to share a new thrifting find today.
I found this large rug for $20 at our local Goodwill Store.
It is in perfect condition and a good quality.
I love the soft  faded colors.
I just put it down, it will flatten out in a few days....

I had an antique chair in this corner, but it was a more yellow pattern.
So I moved the little sleigh into this area for now.
I may recover the chair to match the new rug. 
I like having a chair there.
It is hard to see, but it has a touch of blue in it too.
I have been slowly moving a few perennials and bulbs from the garden area we are removing this year and turning back into mowed yard.  I have also planted seeds this week and removing many invasive weeds.  Today I will try to get the large grasses cut back and all the cuttings removed.  That will be an all day job.
Dessa wants to be outside with me, but she is not quite trustworthy to not run off yet.
It is slowly warming up to the low 60s and many of my bulbs are starting to bloom.  So I better get the clean up done so I can start taking some garden photos for you!
