Myths About Oriental Rugs

When it comes to oriental rugs they seemed to be steeped in mysteries of the East. It can start with a rug retailer giving a little story with the rug to enhance the sale. Or just wrong information which is repeated so many times it takes on a life of its own. So like Myth Busters on television lets bust a few rug myths.

Rug Myth Number One: Oriental rugs are identified only by design. Design is only one component used to identify rugs. Construction, how the rug is put together, is the method used to identify all rugs. Look at the back to first determine if it is machine-made, hand-knotted, flat-weave or some other specialty rug. (The how-to of this has been discussed in past articles July 2007 and August 2006).

Rug Myth Number Two: All oriental rugs appreciate in value. Most post-World War II rugs do not appreciate in value, nor will most rugs purchased new today appreciate in value. Consumers most likely paid more for some rugs in the 60s and 70s than they are worth today. The 90 line 9 x 12 Chinese rugs purchased in the early 1980s for $4,000 can be found for under $1,000 today.

Crochet Rag Rugs Basic Pattern Collection

Crochet Rag Rugs Basic Pattern Collection, Sarah Holmes, 2009, ISBN 9781441490209

This short book, which includes patterns and pictures, is all about crocheting rugs using rags, not yarn. Crocheting with yarn is very well-known, but I have never heard of crocheting with rags. It sounds like a good way to get rid of excess fabric.

It talks about how to attach the 1-inch wide strips of fabric together, in order to make longer strips. Before you even start cutting your fabric strips, it might be good to estimate just how much will be needed; the book covers it. Another important point to remember is making sure that the rug will stay flat when it goes on the floor.

The book shows pictures of different kinds of rugs. There is a basic round rug, a rectangular rug (where it’s OK to change colors every few rows), the well-known oval rug, a heart-shaped rug, a slice rag rug (that looks like a round rug that has been cut in half) and a harvest rug. Instructions are included with each picture, instructions that are written in Crochet, not in English.

Nicely Priced Clocks For Your Home Decor

I don’t know about you, but I am always adding things to my home. I’m more of an eclectic style than anything. If I like it – I’ll put it in my home. It doesn’t ever clash and it always looks just right. Recently I have been searching around for a clock. You wouldn’t believe how hard this is to do.

I don’t want a chintzy looking one, I don’t want one that looks like it belongs in my grandma’s house, and I don’t want one that looks older than I am. I just want something nice that I can add to my game room and my living room! I found a few sites online – one of which sells Seth Thomas ones. No offense to my grandma but she does have a really old antique clock and while it is pretty – its just not what I would want in my home nor is it my style. I’m more of an art deco, contemp, traditional girl myself with flairs ranging from rustic Italian to minimalist — depending on what the item is we are talking about!

These are actually very nice clocks and they have all kinds of options that might interest someone such as yourself such as Seth Thomas Mantel pieces and Seth Thomas wall pieces. They even have a few really nice grandfather pieces as well! I love these, but I could never find a space for it. They remind me of… my grandfather – not to sound super cliche! But some of these are really beautifully built.
