Vintage Rug Show

Time to share a few rug photos I've collected.  This first rug has a lot going on~ horses in the corners geometric border plus hit and miss background.  The rug measures 28 x 41, found in Pennsylvania but sadly no date was provided.
The rug below was hooked by Cecil Perrault of Quebec, Ontario Canada.  Again no date provided nor dimensions.
A floral with doves and scrolls from 19th century appears to be hooked in Waldoboro style, no size or location of find available.  
Below is a floral a follower sent me.  I has regular hooked scrolls but the urn and flowers appear to also be hooked Waldoboro style. 
Lion in the Garden has that wonderful background I like.  Since there was a lot of natural dyeing being done years ago I wonder if the lion colors faded or if that is what the hooker chose.  Sure makes the lion stand out regardless of the circumstance. 
A moose Adirondack scene measures 20 x 30.
This evening there will be MORE rain here even tho I still have 'water front property' already.  Yesterday while standing in the kitchen noticed a family of Mallard ducks and ducklings swimming in my back yard.  Yes it was a pleasant scene but would rather not have all that water in the yard.



  1. we must be missing your rain we got a gentle rain today but back to the sunshine tomorrow.
    Love the rug show the lion is wonderful. I also took a peek back and like what you are working on.

  2. The first one is my favorite. That is a lot of rain and i am sure you are sick of it.

    The only time I had Mallards swimming in my back yard was in the pool in my previous residence...lol!
