So, my latest quest has been for a new rug to go in my new red and black magnetic chalkboard room (pictures soon) in my new house! I am not having any luck, unfortunately (seeing as I’m extremely picky and have a penny-bank-budget on this one) All that to say, I’ve been searching online with brilliant broad net-caster words like “carpets” and “rugs”.
Haven’t found my perfect rug yet, BUT, my searches have led to a fascinating discovery that will be added to my Bucket List: The Brussels Flower Carpet.
Ever heard of it? Neither had I. It happens every even numbered year in Brussels, Belgium and began in the 70’s by a man who wanted to promote begonias. (Swoon!) It is now an amazing attraction every 2 years taking up the entire square in the Grand Place of Brussels with the most intricate and stunning display of flowers I’ve ever seen.
