Treasure Chest Tuesday

2014-10-26 12.43.30-2

This is another treasure I inherited from my Mother. It was made by my Grandma Rose Meyer. My Mom brought it home when they left the old farmhouse. Mom loved it but she never did display it, for  years it sat upstairs rolled up in a corner. I can’t see the sense of having something if you can’t enjoy it, so I display it on the back of a seldom used love seat. At this time of year it echoes the colorful leaves of red, yellow and orange outside my windows.

The rug was made in the 1960’s. The design is original. My grandmother used the beautiful fall trees in her yard for inspiration. It is made of wool probably of old wool she collected. My Grandma Rose enjoyed making things out of cast off things.
