Rugs I did not hook ~ ~ ~

Today I thought I would share with you rugs I own but did not hook. All were purchased on eBay, about 2005 - 2007.

These are 2 small mats hooked by Bonnie Stahl. Her hooking style is rather low loops that are tightly packed.
This is also by Bonnie. The true colors are much more muted.
A small rug by Jane Augenstein of Liberty Homestead Rugs...
...and a closeup view. The first picture shows the truer colors (but still not totally accurate).
I believe this is by eBay seller primitiveglory, though I did not buy it from her. It is unsigned.
Another unsigned rug that I adore. It's 11 1/2 x 16 and so primitive. Its only fault is that it was not hooked on the straight of the grain and doesn't lay quite flat.
Another unsigned rug that is 23 x 37. It was hooked by the seller (I have no recollection of who that was). Her loops are very low but very even. It is a wonderful rug that I got for very little money. Lucky for me but not for the seller. That's all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs (to keep you warm) :)

Nice little collection you have acquired!! Good for you and nice for the artists, too! I know Jane ~ she's a very good hooker!!!! That was meant to be funny ~ she really is a very talented gal!

Gorgeous rugs Lauren. Love every one of them! This is one reason I'm a "stickler" for labeling rugs. What a shame, there is no identification on them. People know me for saying "it's not done until it's whipped and labeled"!

Hi Lauren,
You have collected some really nice rugs! I also like the cat rug in your new 'about me' picture. I hope in the future you show a pic of the whole rug. Is it your own design???
