A little academic humor...

Surfing around tonight, I came across this. It reminded me of various and sundry class and seminar descriptions posted on the concrete walls of my dearly departed grad school. Anyhoo, I was amused.

And we got up all the living room pictures today! We're hoping to get up the playroom ones during nap time tomorrow. I'll feel better to at least have the downstairs done.

Any ideas on where to find a plain jane, dirt colored, 8x10 rug? We've tried Lowes and Home Depot, and no dice. Buying a remnant is a possibility, but having it bound would cost more than the rug itself. I'm striking out all over town at the moment, and all I want is the cheapest, most dirt colored, but not too thin, rug in town that Seth can destroy over time in his play room. =)

Ellen I got my dining room oriental rug at Ollie's (like a big lots) I don't know if there is one near by. Also the amish/mennonite stores sometimes have rag rugs.

I, too, was going to suggest Big Lots. Or Tuesday Morning. If there's no Big Lots near your end of town, there's one just down from Trader Joe's here in Cary. A lot of Linens 'n Things stores are going out, you might try there.
