Fun With Girlfriends


I have spoken before about my friend Louise and her gorgeous hooked rugs. She has been working on a rug for our friend Carole for a few months now and just recently finished it. We got together at Carole’s house yesterday for some girl talk and to see the finished rug. Isn’t it beautiful! That’s Louise on the left and Carole on the right. What a lucky girl to have such a gorgeous rug made by a good friend. Here is Louise with the rug she made for me several months ago. It still gives me so much pleasure every time I look at it.


She does such a beautiful job and takes such pride in her work. More of her rugs can be seen in the Artisan Store

This photo didn’t turn out good. I should have taken another one, medical but I wanted to show it anyway, sale so you could see the dining room.

The hooked rug is going to hang on the wall on the right, drugstore over the chests. It’s the perfect spot to hang it. The handmade shutters make the room feel so cozy, while keeping the hot summer sun off of the newly reupholstered bittersweet sofa and chair.


It was fun, as it always is getting together with good friends. Never a dull moment and always a good laugh.

    Carole, both rugs are just beautiful. I love the subjects of both-flowers and cats! What a great talent your friend has-it must take so many hours to complete her work. Very nice results.
