We were kept so busy yesterday setting up the Showcase house that I didn't have a lot of free time to roam.....besides not all the rooms were completed anyway.

However, two items caught my eye.....

Apparently, I'm not the only one who loves felt!  This 3-D pillow was created with wool felt....truly you wanted to reach out and touch it.
This is the view of the living room.  Not a person walked by without thinking the sleeping pup was real.....  Gray seemed to be a big theme color in several spaces throughout the home.  Seeing the room and knowing it was a 'designer's' vision for the space, reminded me of HGTV's Design Star show which I enjoy immensely.

But....what made me stop was the rug......
Here's a's made up of zillions of half-dollar size pieces of felt in varying shades of grey with a little black peppered in....attached to what appeared to be a thick woven cotton rug.

The texture and colors were so appealing, but my first practical thought on earth would anyone clean it?  You couldn't vacuum the darn thing....could you??   But I guess if you live in a 7,300 sq. ft. home on 11 acres...perhaps cleaning the carpet is not your job!
