You thought I was talking about a guy I could walk all over? Shame on you.
I am actually going to bang on about proper doormats. Weird thing for a post I know but, you see, I buy a fair few doormats. I do. Why? Not because I love doormats or because I have so many visitors that they get worn out. In fact I live in a cave and rarely invite people over. I buy so many freaking doormats because Rex the Wonderdog loves the taste of doormats. I really don’t know why I bother getting new ones, the house is always full of bits of grit anyway.
In search of a fabulous new (cast iron, indestructible) doormat I stumbled across these other ones that, if they weren’t going to be torn to shreds, would fit the bill perfectly.
I do like a good stripe. This looks a bit like a bathmat at the front door…but I still like it.
Cleanscrape Mat The name is a bit off-putting. I prefer to think my dainty size tens need a light dusting off … not a good old scraping.
First one home wins!
A stone door mat. Made from real stones! If the dog chews this one up we might be in trouble. At $149.50 I don’t think we’ll be finding out…
The website says “made of virtually indestructible molded rubber. Impervious to cold, heat, and water…” Virtually indestructible? We have virtually indestructible for dinner. I wonder if it is impervious to dog jaws. Worth a try? No, I don’t think so either.
Really, though, I don’t want timeless ambience. I want a cast iron doormat that doesn’t look like I live in a Victorian era. Simple. No, not really. Then I had a flash of inspiration. WROUGHT iron, not cast iron. And look what I found…
BUT cast aluminium… I can even probably live with dragonflies. I like them better than butterflies version, that’s for sure. At $110 US and from overseas I Don’t Think So. But I’ll stash the thought away for when I’m living on easy street. By then I might be the only one here who is barking at things. And I’ll have a house full of cats instead.
But to keep the little muncher occupied I can afford this … and that will have to do for now.
