This is the raggedy old door mat in front of the teachers lounge at school. Over time, the weather and possibly the bottom of the door scraping over it has frayed the rubbery edge of the mat and the loose strands have curled into the most delightful design. I swear, every time I went in that door, I would look at this and think, "I must take a picture of this graceful little thing." School will be out soon. Who knows how long this mat, with its curly strips of rubber will last. I had my camera today, and I finally took a picture.
