When I moved, I became close friends with two of my neighbors almost instantly. I had been afraid of the move, because I had never left everything behind before. Meeting these two women helped me more than I could ever tell them. Our relationship started because they asked me where I had purchased my felt ball rugs when they saw me carrying them in from the moving truck. I can understand why they were so drawn to them, because I had the same reaction when I first saw them. They are not just ordinary rugs. They are exquisite, and that is because they are handmade with care.

In a world of automation, it is easy to tell when something is made with such care, which is why they were as drawn to my rug as I was. I gave them both the website where I had purchased mine from, and a great friendship was born that day. They both ended up purchasing rugs from the same website, mainly because of their quality and they were also able to custom make their rugs with the colors that they wanted.

My neighbor to the left chose earth colors. They were able to create a really nice olive and brown rug for her that has about five different shades in it. My neighbor on the right had a pastel rug created for her. She got colors that remind me of Easter, and they are both gorgeous. In fact, after seeing these rugs, I decided to order another one for myself. I wanted one done in different shades of blue, and it was delivered just a week after I ordered it! How is that for amazing customer service? I am glad my new friends have really nice rugs, but I am even more grateful for the new friendships I have.
