During our time in NY, we took the ferry over to Vermont to visit the Shelburne Museum. I hadn't been since I was a child. My sister had told me about all the great Folk Art there so I grabbed my camera!! I have this sickness in that I see a hooked rug design in everything. Just ask Kitty about her coffee owl post..... It was a beautiful day in Vermont and all the lilacs were in full bloom.
|I'll take one of each please.....|
|"Just once for the drinks??" what does that mean? Cocktails anyone?|
|What is wrong with us? What a bunch of hams!!|
|I mean really.......it's fake food!!!|
|I've seen this amazing piece of folk art in other designers rugs. It is just gorgeous. I may have to do something with it as well in my own interpretation....|
|Mom and a friend!|
|Carpetbags......on display in an old general store...|
|Cabinet full of old sewing notions...|
|The famous Round Red Barn. You may recognize this from Warren Kimble's folk art.|
|A replica of the home of Elektra Havemeyer Webb.|
|Hooked rug stair runner. Amazing!!|
|Sunset from the Ferry heading back to NY.|
Come back tomorrow to see some of Patty Yoder's Hooked rugs. She was an amazing rug hooker from Vermont.
Until next time.....
