Especially kitchen rugs.
Yesterday I went looking for new kitchen rugs for Chris's family cabin. I had purchased some new ones last year but had made the mistake of getting light green ones.
Light green, in a cabin, on Puget Sound, where we go fishing, and beach walking, and it rains....a lot.
So I thought hey, I'll go look for some darker rugs, with non-skid backing, and a low profile (to fit under the doors).
Sound easy enough right? I thought so. I went to Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Marshalls.
I found lots of cream colored rugs. And the light green and light blue ones. I'm pretty sure they were all bathroom rugs. I found some nice dark colored wool rugs, without non-skid, and well...wool. In damp Puget Sound? No thanks.
And then I found what I thought was going to be the jackpot. At Marshalls. In the very back. On the bottom shelf. I spotted some blackish, low profile, non-skid rugs. And I pulled them out one by one......Roosters. ROOSTERS. ROOSTERS on every single one. There must have been 20 rugs there. Perfect rugs, the right size, the right profile, the non-skid, the dark color.......but there were ROOSTERS!
I'm pretty sure ROOSTERS don't fit into our cabin theme.
