You don't know what we will find

The chorus has given me much, not the least the cameraderie of an extraordinary group of people. One such couple are Chris and Nancy, retired professors who love to travel to out of the way places. Their home is a treasure house of items they have picked up from their excursions to Asia, the Americas, Africa, and Europe. I love going there because I always find something new that I haven't noticed before.

One thing they do is collect rugs. They graciously granted me permission to take photos of their rugs. The variety of designs they have is incredible and the ones they have on display are just a portion of the collection. I can see how Kaffe Fassett fell in love with the textiles out there. Who could not marvel at the design and color of rugs like these?

Wouldn't it be fun to have one of these as a magic carpet?

OMG, that one on the top has me completely captivated! If that was in my house, I have to pet it all day long.

Oh man, I'd want all of them! #1 is wonderful - not that I know much about rugs, but it reminds me of Nepalese or Tibetan art. However, I'm drooling over #2; that one just grabs me. #3, though, boy is that an amazing one! Love the variety of styles they picked. Thanks much for posting these!
