WELCOME TO ~~FOR HEART AND HOME~~

Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

OLD FASHIONED RAG RUGS - JEWELRY FOR YOUR FLOORS





Making beautiful rag rugs has become a passion of mine. You are never quite sure how they are going to turn out until they are finished. You can visualize the different fabrics and the design, but until the sewing is finished you are never quite sure if the end result will meet your expectations. Rag rugs are from days past where going to Walmart for a nice mat or rug wasn't an option and you made do with whatever you had in the house when you needed a rug. Many people do the braiding process or the crocheted method, but I like to do the raggedy method as that is what I believe really is a rag rug. I call these little rugs jewelry for your floors as they will brighten up any room and immediately be the focal point when someone enters a room.

I have many sets in my Etsy shop with matching guest towels and some with matching hanging pillow sachets. I have done a whole series of rag rugs and matching guest towels in different pastels just ready for Spring decorating in your home. The more you wash these little gems the nicer they become. These sets are perfect for a bed and breakfast decor - your country cottage bedroom, bathroom or in your kitchen if the colors match the decor. Don't be afraid to experiment with this old fashioned tradition. Once people see them, it will become a new tradition. Just click on any one of the pictures and it will take you to the site. Remember to check out the matching items for these little rugs.

These are so beautiful I would not want anyone to walk on them - would have to find another use. They are truly beautiful!

These rugs are looking gorgeous ,but when you’re looking for the best rugs area choose a cotton and wool blend fabric that are more durable than cotton, but still less expensive.
