Meet a High Desert arts and crafts senior team, Ed and Nina. I was attracted to Nina’s booth when I saw a heart rug like the one my mother made by braiding strips of sheets years ago. Nina’s husband, Ed, couldn’t make it to the show that day, but his quality wood products were on display. I especially love his sleigh clock and the sleigh that says “I only admit I’m a senior when I want a discount.” One of his step stools is just like the ones my mother always loved to keep around the house.
Need to find a beautiful handmade rug for a Christmas gift? Contact Angie at High Desert Blogging to order one of Nina’s handmade rugs. Nina will even make you a rug out of your own material. It takes 18 yards for a rectangular rug, 22 yards for a heart-shaped rug, and 16 yards for an oval rug. By ordering one of Nina’s pretty rugs, you’ll be supporting one of High Desert’s home businesses.
