Celebrating Crafty Creations

Historic Ringness House offers craft fair, Norwegian style

By Elizabeth Devereaux

The weather for the third annual Ringness House Museum Craft Fair and Leif Erikson Day celebration was sublime. The musicians played quietly beneath the sunshade while Potter Jan Ahart worked at her wheel throwing vases and bowls, children played quietly and sausages sizzled on the grill. People milled around asking questions of the vendors who brought hand-braided whips, melted glass sculpture, knitted objects d’art, paintings and foodstuffs. All proceeds from the event go to maintaining the site.

By Elizabeth Devereaux

All five senses were addressed and appeased in downtown Clifton at the First Annual Clifton Burger, Brews and Blues festival this past Saturday. Downtown was hoppin’ with good food, family hugs, lots to see and the sounds of Texas blues The chamber barricaded traffic with creatively decorated calf-sized plywood renditions cows; all entered in a contest. Smoke filled the air and the sound of laughter was punctuated by the call of friends as they greeted one another.
