I love to peruse the internet for
vintage hooked rugs...
I found the ones pictured here on Pinterest,
of course ~
|i love that this rug has such a dark background and vibrant colors...|
|the striations in the dog perfectly balance the meandering vine of flowers along the border of this rug....|
|black cat, rabbit, dog, horse and goat....beloved farmyard animals ~|
|different shades of blue, paired with cream & army-blanket green...be still my heart!|
|ok...is there ANYthing about this rug that doesn't make you smile? |
...those little peeps crack me up.
|this is a sculpted rug, the technique is known as Waldoboro-style. |
the dense-ly packed strips of wool are hooked at different heights, then snipped and sculpted for a 3D effect.
|the way this rug was hooked, very straight & orderly, keeps it rather serene and quiet.|
love those black cats.
|the expression on the horse in this rug is priceless....|
...love the corners with hearts & flowers.
|my heart sings when I look at this vintage rug ~ robin red breast's on a log...|
|and I think this rug is my all-time favorite...|
hooked in true scrappy style with a heartfelt sentiment.
I'm sure the maker of this had as many wool worms in her collection as I do!
