Every once in awhile you come across a treasure. Such was the case for me last week as I took my daily stroll through my favourite junk store (just to escape the heat) and as always headed to the back of the store where the fabric and notions are displayed. A hooked rug which my picture does not do it justice. The foundation is burlap, the scene is so 'Maud Lewis', the front is soft as lamb's wool and the back is just as well done. It has been signed by the maker with a 'B' in the right hand corner. The price does not reflect the love and steady craftsmanship that went into this rug.

I find junk stores and second hand shops irresistible. One man's trash is another man's treasure
