i found a carpet

yesterday when i came out of my block entrance, i saw this carpet by the recyling bin. i had a good experience in the past with found carpets,that one i found ages ago and  it is on my bedroom floor for ages now and given me a lot of pleasure. so i did not hesitate to take this one, esp when it is right by my door step as it were.

later i had a good look at it and am pleasantly surprised at how intricate the design. i had thought of putting it on the floor of the spare bedroom, but it looks so good i will spread it out on my living room floor instead.

it has the name valby ruta at the back, and so i googled it and found this. it is an ikea carpet. and surprisingly cheap at £49. it is synthetic of course, hence the price, but still looks good. it is easy to upkeep unlike wool carpets which are prone to attacks by a moth caterpilla.

the bedroom carpet, it is softer to step on. picture is fuzzy, because   the button to activate the flash in my camera is not working and the bedroom is dark. added. i shall take another pic again though not sure when  i can do it because simon is sleeping in there after his night shift work. added. 7.23pm another attempt to get it focused.still not very sharp, but it will have to do.
