Currently Coveting

I don't NEED a thing (except a quieter life some days, and MUCH more money would be quite handy)
And I'm quite happy to just see what the Thrifting Goddesses give me, 
but every now and then something presents itself that I think I would quite like!

So here is my new random series-
CURRENTLY COVETING

I took my carpet in to be turned into rugs by a lovely man who continues to apply himself to his craft (I love that) and he cut and edged my axminster rose carpet..

Anyway, on his HUGE pile of offcuts (mainly variations on grey and beige) I saw this..
I was instantly in love .

Imagine a floor of this!!
Axminster (of course) and SO cool.

DROOL worthy..

I brought it home. It's just a strip. But once I unfold the edge and take the tacks out it might be about 30cm wide or so..
I guess the Doll's House will get some, and I'm thinking what else to do with it. I might line a shelf with it.

And one day, you never know...
At a garage sale somewhere.....

Are you coveting anything currently??

Happy Days!

Ya can't beat a nice bit of Axminster. We had Axminster carpets back in the UK, one whole room was carpeted in it once after a win on the horses. It'll last for years :D I covet everything, I'm greedy like that hahahah

That carpet is fabulous. Funnily enough, I'm pretty sure the carpet you have in your header is the same as the one my grandma had in her house.
