Once again I'm looking for the one antique which makes my heart skip a beat to put on my frame next; and what better way than to do a rug show. The first one is 8 point Stars which was hooked 19th century and measures 38 x 48. This doesn't make my heart skip a beat but it is a nice looking rug.
Believe it or not this Potted Plant hooked rug caught my attention for a certain spot on the wall near where I hook. I recently gave my son a vintage Johnnie Walker liquor store display which had been electrified and made into a lamp. I've had it for decades but knew it would look great in his 'man cave' .
Since I have an OTT light behind me for hooking I didn't a light on the end table using up valuable space. So it seems bare and feel the need to have something on the wall to fill that void. Called to asked my son to take a photo of the lamp so you could see what I gave him. (his room is still a work in progress, notice the insulation).
This rug below might do it for the spot. The original measures 18 x 36 and was hooked 19th Century. I wouldn't make mine that big just want it on the wall near me and beside the window.
Yet I'm looking for something that reaches out and grabs me. So let's continue with the rug show, shall we?
Recently found on an auction site is the Deer with Pond and Scrolls. It measures 30 x 48 and this is the faded front.
vertical design I like is Flower with Birds hooked 1879. Presently Kimm of Sheep Underfeet (blog) is doing an adaptation of the design.
Guess I can give you one more rug for a round number of 10 and make it a black cat. The rug measures 23 x 37.
