'R' for Rugs Office Parenting

Everyone is Enjoying the New Rug

Yes, the granny chic rug is in my office, and it’s pretty fantastic.

Eleanor and Kili

Eleanor’s practicing for Stuff on my Cat with Kili. Kili is too lazy to move.

p.s. There are a dozen new photos of Eleanor up on my flickr page. I am sparing you the extra eleven, but feel free to click over if you’re so inclined.

    Love the rug! I’m considering a Dash and Albert rug as well – the Cat’s Paw design in Oatmeal. How does the quality seem?

    Very cute photo. At first I misread and thought your cat’s name was Kill, which would actually be kind of awesome. Anyway, I’m wondering if you would do a post sometime on your favorite sources for cool, simple baby clothes. My son is just a couple of months younger than Eleanor and I’ve had a hard time finding non-lame clothes for him. Eleanor always looks so stylish and not overly-cutesy–please share your secrets!

    Love the rug! And Eleanor is adorable, as always. I’m impressed that your cat allows the baby so close to her. Mine is always on the lookout lest the baby get too close.

    Love the extra pictures. It looks like you have a good-looking high chair. I saw the Graco tag, but would you mind posting some photos & sharing where you got it?

    Oh congrats on the rug, it looks great (but of course!) I have already been commenting on those pics they have all been classic. She seems to be brewing up quite the personality and she is going to be a looker–watch out world!

    […] to make some changes to it last year. I rearranged the furniture, brought in a pretty mirror and a crazy zigzag rug, but that’s where the progress stopped. I was going for a kind of granny chic look, remember? […]
