New Vintage Rug Finds

When I have a little time I like searching auction houses for hooked rug designs.  So guys and gals, I've some naive and primitive vintage rugs to show you.  I absolutely LOVE this design and one day would like to do an adaptation of it. 
This rug also appealed to me.  Perhaps it was the hit and miss border, the great way this hooker worked with neutral colors, main color red in center and random red in the hit and miss border makes the eye visit and pull everything together. 
And who doesn't like Sunbonnet Sue?........

Or doggies?

I don't save copies of all the rugs as some just don't appeal to me.  Am sure that there are many more rug pictures that I haven't posted on my blog and perhaps one day you'll get to see them all.  If you're like me, you never tire of looking at old rugs.

Have a great evening and for those of you who will experience a warm up for the weekend, enjoy.  It may be raining here but the temperatures are a far cry better than what we had a few days ago.



  1. I love the apple rug, it reminds me of the photos you see that are black and white and then a pop of red on one item

  2. I love that first dog rug!
    Warmer with rain in our forecast, too.
    Hugs :)

  3. I adore the apple rug !
    Looking forward to some warmer weather today ! (I don't even mind if it is raining ;)

  4. These really are lovely, thanks for sharing!

  5. Love the Barbara Merry rug. They're all wonderful, but the first one stole my heart.

  6. I love the first one. I love looking at old rugs for ideas, hugs cheri

  7. Those rugs are really good to look at. I think they would all be perfect display accents than something to step on. The designs are too cute, especially the one with the twin little girls wearing red. Hahaha! :))
