Wild Walk Story
This rug was inspired by a trip to Europe with my family. We were just about to tour Pompeii. It was a gorgeous, sunny day but frightfully hot. My daughter and I were melting – my husband had a hat (smart!).
We decided to buy hats to shade us as we knew there wasn’t any shade during the tour. The only hat vendor close by had an ‘interesting’ selection. There wasn’t a hat without plastic flowers on them. When I say plastic – I mean they couldn’t have looked faker. They were dreadful. They also were attached with atomic strength glue (I tried to take them off – believe me – but they were not budging).
What to do? We bought them of course! We put our hats on and laughed and laughed at the other’s appearance. When we looked in the mirror, the laughter continued until we had to sit down.
When we were finally able to stand up, we decided to have fun with it and started skipping down the sidewalk arm in arm. As usual a song started playing in my head – Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side.”
“Doo do doo do doo do do doo…”
Our stay in Europe (or ever) was nothing like the song but I have to admit that was one ‘wild walk’ in our floppy hats with the plastic flowers. It’s a cherished image I’ll never tire of.
I designed the rug from a picture of the cobblestone sidewalk my daughter and I skipped on that day.
