Hello, ladies and germs my name is Grandma Donna. Long time reader, new contributor. Thought I'd dust off the old rug and get out to meetcha. Bought this rug years ago at a fancy boutique. It was beautiful, dense and frankly very useful. Used to clean it regularly and throw it up on the line to spank down with a wooden spoon. As time went by though I had a few kids and the rug got stomped down with all the traffic. For awhile it was being used as a dog bed and eventually we used it as a protective cover for some antiques that we rolled up in it and stowed away. My husband died last year and I did a full house clean up. Found the rug, shook it out and had some professionals come out and do the once over. Now it's back to looking dense, if not brand new. Thought I'd extend an olive branch to some gents (Scooter boot, here's lookin' at you honey) and have you over for a little picnic on my rug.
P.S. You don't have to call me grandma
