I did it.
I finally saw the movie I have been wanting to see since there was even TALK of them making it! I was a fan of the books, and let me tell you, I was NERVOUS. About what you may ask? Since I loved the books, I had to wonder if they’d keep true to it in the movie or somehow mess it up.
And let me tell you, the Hunger Games Movie was QUITE fantastic. I was quite happy with the results.
Yes, I am speaking about the Hunger Games! And to celebrate that it was a fantastic movie, I decided to do two things:
Celebrate with a rug picture and a reciepe. Which comes to my theme for this week: Nature.
How in the world did I get Nature? you may ask. Well, because of the background of the Hunger Games has a lot of nature in it, it really sparked that thought in me. And so, when I was just looking around for things that reminded me of the Hugner Games, things with nature is what stood out to me. Which I have no complaints about.
First, the lovely decor and rugs that I love so much.
This rug I chose because of the green and brown. It does have a slight earth/nature feel to it while still being modern. In my mind, this rug fit the nature feel.
