Hello to everyone. Just thought I'd try to start updating this a little more regularly.
My husband and I love handmade items and antiques. There is a certain charm in something that is handmade, not to mention the love someone put into making the item. If you are a crafter you know what I mean. I think everyone can appreciate the time and energy that goes into making something. Sometimes you have no idea what your going to create. Then there are other times when you have something in mind and you start to make it then something happens and it doesn't look like your vision but, that is all part of the process in making things.
Antiques on the other hand are just something that is a wonderful part of our past. You can't help it when you look at something to begin to wonder who used it, when and for what. Your mind wanders to a very distant place and you begin to make up a story in your head about the particular piece you happen to be looking at. I think it helps us to reconnect with our ancestors and the world around us.
We live in a very fast paced world and it is enjoyable to take time out to be a little creative, to slow down our pace a bit and make something or maybe browse through some antique shops and just slip back in time to a slower pace of life. These are things we really enjoy. What about you what do you do to relax and recharge yourself?
We'd love for you to leave a comment or share any thoughts you have. If you'd like to see some of the things we make you can visit our shop at: brazosriversticks.etsy.com
