This is Gibson Lane......the dirt road that leads to our home and my business. This pretty tunnel is about 1/2 mile long, the trees and bushes that line its way give you the feeling that you are actually covered in foliage. A drive through the tunnel gives you a glimpse into a wildlife refuge.......birds singing and zipping down the lane in front of your vehicle......squirrels gathering acorns and scooting out of your way......an occasional raccoon or two peeking out from around the tree branch......even a mother skunk and her little ones......those are some of the little animals that live here. We have bigger ones too.....like coyotes, wild hogs, bobcats and of course deer. All these animals, big and small, make up part of the beauty of driving down Gibson Lane!
Our home (and business) sets on land we call "Seldom Rest Ranch".....the name gives you a hint of how things are around here. We are nestled in large live oak trees with ponds and creeks, all which give me inspiration as well as peace.
My business has been a dream of mine for many years, especially since I've retired. I've always been involved in crafts....making a little bit of anything and everything you can imagine. My tastes and styles vary, but I'm drawn to the Primitive and Country style. The same goes for antiques.....I love the Primitive pieces and things like old crocks, kitchen gadgets, old farm tools, quilts and old pottery.
My shop is just in its beginning stages.....I'm slowly adding items that I have in storage barns and packed away. I hope to add a few more handmade items in the months to come.....please come back to the shop and see what's new!
Owner, Maker, Designer
Not only did I get my love for crafts and antiques from my parents, I got my name from my Mother too. Her name is Inez...they turned her name around and made mine! Now that's crafty! I think it's obvious, I come from clever parents!
