Part of my daily routine is looking on the internet for newly listed antique rugs and this week I found several. This time some of the findings were bitter sweet since many were from the estate of dearly departed Barb Carroll. One such beautiful antique rug is this Frost Horse rug circa 1900 which measures 30 x 48.
and Bentley was the name Barb gave this rug because of the initials at the bottom. It was hooked late 19th century and measures 28 x 40.
I remember admiring this Welcome mat which was hanging over a bed at her home. It was hooked early 20th century, measuring 19 x74.
The dog was hooked early 20th century and measures 17.5 x 36.5 and was hanging on the wall at the stairwell near Birthday Bunny.
More than likely there will be other antique rugs of Barb's listed at the auction houses so I'll be super vigilant in my pursuit of them as days go by. FYI, none of the rugs posted here were hooked by Barb; all of these were antique rugs she purchased.
(Edit) ~ I thought the rubber ducky mats would make more sense if the story started at the beginning...during 2012 Barb was going thru a troubling time so a bunch of us got together and purchased cases of rubber ducks for her koi pond. They might make her smile and be a reminder she had emotional support from her friends.
