Believe it or not there are quotes about 'RUGS' too....

but the rug you found at the flea market is so unique, it takes your room
from carbon copy to simply yours.  Nate Berkus
Where thou home...there is Art.

  1. We aren't big rug people. But here's a home quote by Pearl S. Buck that I have in my office
    "Where is my home?
    Where shall I find
    True freedom for
    the heart and mind?

    I find that peaceful. Enjoy your Saturday

    1. Thanks Joanne for sharing her quote. What insight to the heart and mind she had. For a rug maker, I don't have many rugs on the floor...more on tables and dressers. Happy Saturday!

  5. Fun quotes - I love Erma Bombeck. I love your rag rug. It's on my list of things to make someday. I have a vintage one that I picked up that I think will last forever. Visiting you from Pink Saturday - and so glad I found you.

    1. Thanks for visiting. It is always nice to me another Erma Bombeck fan. Making rag rugs has been on my to do list for a long time. They do last forever.

  6. I just love rag rugs and have a few around my house. It is true! They don't wear out! I love the colors in the one you made.

  7. Hi Sue - what a great rug ... I'm not that keen on rag rugs ... but love it that people make them and love them. The colours are great ... I love reds and brighter colours ... rust, yellows etc .. that make my home - oddly a lot of my art is black and white ... cheers Hilary

  8. Quotes are good but I LOVE your rug! Fabulous and what a sweet reminder of a treat you gave yourself.
