Today we are celebrating the 1970s in a Palm Springs, California home. [I marked the category “Not Ugly” because the house is in such pristine condition.] This is a listing in Palm Springs from one of my college fraternity brothers. Please enjoy the 1970s flashback. Groovy!
Macramé was a popular craft activity in the 1970s. Many different knots to learn. Colored beads to add. I helped my mom make macramé hangings when I was a kid.
Latch hook rugs were another popular pastime in the 1970s. I helped my mom make this same Kachina doll rug in the 1970s.
