Hooked Rugs Old and Newer

Since I thoroughly enjoy looking at rugs posted on other people's blogs I thought I'd give you all a treat and post some on my blog as well.  I'm sure this is an antique and find it so interesting that the little bit of red in the cardinal, door and windows is brought together well with that bit of red around the border.  Your eye moves all around the rug because of the brown walk and border.  Look at the squirrel in the borer to the right border and how the smoke climbs into the border on the top.
Love this Moose design and have a hankering to hook one myself one day while it isn't old there is something about it that speaks to me.  I forget if this is a design by Emma Lou Lais or someone else; so if anyone recognizes the designer, please let me know.
This shepherd rug definitely is an antique and very washed out but still lovely.
Just look at the gorgeous E.S.Frost horse rug ~ OMG, it is delightful and the horse has such great sleek lines.
What a beautiful antique hit and miss geometric.  And while it is an antique the hooker obviously had some artistic abilities because the inside sections almost gives the viewer the feeling it is being looked at thru a magnifying lass and showing the larger image of what is below.  Very intriguing.
Another antique with a little hit and miss going on, also eye catching.  
Well I've more rugs that I could post but will save some for another day.  Meanwhile I'd better get back to pulling more loops on my swimsuit rug.  I almost think I'd rather be scrubbing my kitchen floor than finishing that rug ~ all the interesting fun stuff has been hooked and I'm left with the rest of the background and border.... BORING.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Great rugs!
    Me, I like hooking boring backgrounds! That's when I don't have to think at all. (Guess it matches my!)
    Pug hugs :)
