Primitive Rug Show

Guess that got your attention.... everyone loves a rug show.  And this will give me another day of working on the Magdalena Goat before showing you my little progress.
Above is a rug which sold for $3,813 and tho hard to see there is a dog in the center.  
Shame there is so much damage on the rabbit hooked rug above.
The lion is said to have came from a farmhouse and is late 19th or early 20th century.
Red Doves above with a hit and miss sawtooth border.

In case you're wondering, yes I'm aware all the rugs so far have on a red in them.  At first it was a coincidence then decided to keep on looking for rugs with that predominant color.
And last is an eagle with two lions below.

Happy Sunday everyone.  Yesterday it was 80 degrees according to my thermostat and today is back to normal February temperatures.  So I have on my turtleneck and sweat shirt.  But hey, it was wonderful while it lasted.



  1. wonderful old rugs...especially the red doves...Friday it was in the 70's and today it's snowing...oh the rabbit rug is great too, except it needs a cat in the middle! give Ben a hug from me...

  2. We've had 2 days of normal February temps (boohoo), but unlike Kelley who lives maybe an hour and a half from me, no snow.
    My fav rug is the eagle!
    Happy Sunday :)

  3. I think I like the lion and the two bird rush best, but the bunny is appealing too.
    A bit of red is always a nice touch.

  4. love the red in all of them :)

  5. Wonderful rugs and like the eagle, different from ones I have seen.
