Well, its not Howdy Doody time 😄. Some of you younger rug hookers won't know who I'm talking about. But it was a show I watched as a kid with Buffalo Bob, Clarabelle, Princess Summer Fall Winter Spring and of course Howdy Doody. The show ran from 1947 until 1960. If you would like to learn more about the iconic TV show you can read about it HERE.
Of course you know it is antique rug show time. This CAT rug was hooked in the 19th century and dimensions are 26 x 36.
Crowing Rooster circa 1900, is a great and subtle use of hit and miss. It measures 35.5 x 41.5.
the woman who shared photos of the Barbara E. Merry rugs and paintings she owns? Anne also shared this vintage and heavy rug she owns, the Man in the Mountain. It was a real mountain with that name located in Notch, NH and was a tourist attraction until it crumbled in 2003. You can read about that HERE.
She also owns this Beaver rug which she purchased in Quebec several years ago.
We are getting the spoils of Ida here with heavy winds and rain with tornado warnings until 10 p.m. I hate when that happens. Just in case I lose electricity with down power lines I'm charging the portable AC/DC Ott lamp so I can hook until the power to it dies.
