It was so cool to see the poster for Texas Metal Arts on the wall of Gruene Hall!
Texas' oldest dance hall
A week ago today we arrived late in the Texas hill country, my favorite part of my state. I grew up taking vacations to New Braunfels to float the Gaudalupe river, and was so excited to return. My parents, and Frank accompanied me to my show and we made a little vacation out of it. Thursday night we ate at the famous Grist Mill restaurant in Gruene, and popped into Gruene hall to check it out.
I grew up in a family of crafts people, with a fiber artist mother and a woodworking father. My maternal grandparents were also both crafty, always making things and tending garden. This family, with a make it yourself attitude, and home filled with handmade objects and furnishings has had a lifelong impact on me. While I no longer have time for much jewelry making I continue to find creative outlets via sewing, knitting, baking, gardening and so on. I love to share my creative endeavors with you.
