I collect old bricks. When I tell people that, I really get some strange looks. I always search for them around old houses at estate sales and often times people will just give them to me. I guess they think of them as worthless.
One of the first projects I tackled after getting into our house was to build a brick path from the back door to the driveway. Most of the bricks used here were found on our property.
Now I know that it's not perfectly straight or level, but it does keep my feet dry and it makes me happy!
Ferris bricks seem to be common here in East Texas. The chimney on my 1932 home is made from them, but I don't know where they were produced. If you do, send me a message. I would love to know. The star is one of my favorites.
I also really like the TEXAS bricks. (My violets are blooming!)
This picture contains a diamond brick. You'll see more of these in Bricks - Part 2. There's more to come!
