Sweet Suzanne of Pear Tree Primitives, aka Painter of the Past, tagged me. I'm supposed to explain how my business got its name. . . . I love old paisleys, and long ago, when most hooked rugs were made with recycled materials, women would hook their worn paisleys into rugs. Old paisleys are a little harder to come by these days, and pretty expensive, but they add a real spark to an otherwise dull rug. So there you go. The Paisley Studio was born.
