Yup, Time For a Rug Show

This is my usual 'go to' post when I don't want to bore you with just an update on the same stuff and don't have anything earth shaking to talk about.  Although I did marry some wool which will be the background for my son's rug.  That to be shared at a later day.

Since I can't remember which rugs I've shown previously there maybe some repeats here.  But hey, who minds looking at the same rugs?  The hooker of this rug some odd years ago also appreciated Van Gogh's artwork.
Thought this was very interesting with it's delicate flowers, detailed inside but with a primitive border.
When I look at antique rugs wonder why the hooker used the design or the colors.  This is a very basic design, yet it is attractive.  Very few colors and I like it. 
This rug below is from Cogswells Grant, a New England rug, according to what I've read
A farm scene.

A hooked dog and hooked horse with braided border.  But I'm thinking the one with the braided border isn't really an antique but a dang good job.

This is a comforting rug to look at.  Not sure I'd want to hook it but there is just something about antique rugs that is soothing.
Two swans rug and this one has the binding tape showing around the edge.

This is a New England Shirred rug but sadly don't think it is even all the rug photo I was able to catch.  Bet the whole thing is totally awesome.  Can't imagine how much time it took to make a rug like that. 
Enjoy what you have remaining of your weekend and hope fair spring like weather is coming your way (and my way) soon.



  1. So many little time...sigh.
    Spring has arrived in Ohio. I hope it plans to stick around.
    Hugs :)

  2. Beautiful old rugs, always love seeing them and getting ideas for our own pieces.


  3. A nice rug show, I love the first and the last best.

    Our new week began with Spring being pushed in the background and winter taking over again with about 13 inches of new snow on top of the old snow but the sun is shining.

    Enjoy your Spring weather.

  4. You always have the best rug show!!
    I love the second and fourth one!!
