Another Mini Rug Show

At first glance I thought the motifs were hearts; but upon closer look AND then reading the description learned they were apples.  From South Pomfret, VT it was dated late 19th or early 20th century.  Original size is 62 x 66.
Below is a floral and geometric design sold by Conestoga auction in Pennsylvania.  No date was given but original dimensions are 27 x 39.
The 3 star rug with hit and miss border was said to be hooked around 1920 and was sold by Olde Hope auction.  Dimensions are 30 x 63.
A floral and stars design with geometric center.  There is a lot going on but my eye moves around and notice everything.
Below is a perfect example of a naive folk art type rug.  It has lollipop leaves on the tree, animals are over sized compared to the house and trees.  Dated mid 20th century from New England.
American flags with hit and miss background.
The rug below was given a date of 1900 and located in Maryland.  I cannot decide if it is an abstract geometric, if the center is a house, or is it a face with eyes, nose, lips and mustache?  Why isn't the hooker around when there are so many questions to ask?
Have a good eveing.
