You may recall earlier this year I introduced you to my friend Lisa. She began hooking in March of this year and already has at least 5 rugs she has completed and is working on the 6th. She is an avid collector of antiques and primitives. I thought you might enjoy a few photos of her home all decorated for Christmas!
It was my first visit to her home and I'll tell you I had to keep pinching myself that I wasn't dreaming!
It was so beautiful. So many great pieces and all lovingly displayed! She has a true love for primitive and especially hand crafted things!
You will see some of her rugs ( some my designs.... I am so humbled she likes my designs!) displayed throughout her home.
In the photo above is her very first rug! I love how she has displayed it!
Enjoy the tour!!!
The horse rug is Lisa's 5th rug. She has to bind it yet! She's learned that's her least favorite part of rug hooking! LOL! We can all relate to that right?
Is that tulips I see in that old firkin? An ode to Spring! Gotta love that!!
A Santa that fell off the shelf and broke. She kept the pieces and displayed in a stoneware bowl. He has such a wonderful face!
I love how she displayed her Feather Tree Rug! She hooked this from one of my kits that I designed.
Here she is!! The talented and sweetest friend you could ever ask for! I'd like to thank-you Lisa for letting me take and post photos of your home on my blog! I think touring homes is one of all bloggers most favorite things to do! Don't you agree?
An Arnett Santa! Don't you love the basket and lantern! Lisa added them to this Santa! Perfect!
Ticking Pillows all stacked up in the bedroom! So cozy! And I love that burlap bow on the tree!
A child's antique wheelbarrow filled with fresh greens!
I love the tin backsplash! In fact I love her whole kitchen. Lisa's hubby does all the carpentry in her house. Do you think she'd let me borrow him for awhile? LOL!
The Christmas tree was displayed in a large wooden wheelbarrow! So cool!!
It has the original stenciled writing on the side.
A yard of red wool is displayed on a blanket crane behind a Stein Angel. I wonder how long it will be before she hooks that wool into one of her rugs?!! LOL!!
Under the angel you will get a glimpse of one of Lisa's stitched pieces. Yes! She is a stitcher also! I will try to get some photos of some of her work for a future post!
I'll leave you with a photo of the queen of the house! This is little Tess, the rat terrier. Believe me when I say she rules the roost! She gets the run of the house while another rat terrier and a black lab get to reside in the downstairs. She is really the sweetest little thing! I think she has her Momma wrapped around her little paw!
Happy New Year to all my friends in blogland!
Welcome to the new readers I see are hopping on board!
The new year promises to be filled with new adventures and hopefully some new patterns for us all to hook!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
Until next year.......
