A visit to the country house


Just before Easter my hubby had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Linda Carswell at her home in Tasmania.


Linda sent two of her beautiful Aubusson rugs home with him!
One day I will have a French house but in the meantime I thought the Nylon family might like a little luxury in their country home.


Ah, yes, Mr Nylon is a VERY happy man!


Here's the other rug in the master bedroom. It's the perfect colour for this room.


Gorgeous!


Linda also sent this fabulous hutch dresser for the as yet unfinished country kitchen.
The Nylons are feeling very pleased with their new good fortune...the decorator may even be inspired to return and finish what she started quite some time ago.

Another spectacular gift from Linda was this little sewing box all beautifully painted and papered by Linda herself.
Thank you Linda!
I'll be there soon!!

  15. Wow! Linda was quite generous with these gorgeous gifts! How beautiful those rugs are! I don't blame the Nylon family--I would be happy, too! Still working on our swap items--have ordered a mold to make something special so don't send yet--work keeps getting in my way of getting things done!
