Nude on a rug

Tamera Bremer has her rug back -- her nude, self-portrait rug.

It was stolen from an exhibit at Linfield College, near Portland, Oregon, in October.

The risque rug was found in a Dumpster this week, by a man who recognized it from news reports.

Campus police report it's a little wet, and maybe a bit smelly, but the rug is in good shape.

Bremer, who teaches at the college, says it took her two years of rug-hooking to make.

She marked the nude rug's return with friends at a karaoke celebration.
