Antique Chores is a blog dedicated to exploring historic arts and crafts. It is a modern woman’s tribute to the way things used to be.

In the world today, there is so much more to do and see, so much to absorb every day.. sometimes we all would like to just slow down.

In this blog we will explore how doing things “the old way” can feel like a meditation, and how using your hands and wits to create beauty and utility can bring all the rest of life into sharper focus.

It’s that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so ‘don’t fuss, dear; get on with it.’
