My favorite inside pass time as a girl was to make Barbie houses inside the bathroom cabinets complete with innovative junk furniture, rugs and artwork. This was an ongoing project for my sister and I until we completely took over the entire bathroom incorporating the sink and counter top as a rooftop pool area.
Today, I lean towards a rustic style somewhere between Adirondack and Western with a little Cottage thrown in for good measure. Ive been married half of my life to a wild-eyed southern boy and together we have built a nice little farm and produced two adrenaline junkie children.
In November, 2010 we opened a handmade and vintage shop at home on our farm that we call Ranch Dressing. Our farm has become known as the Junk Ranch. The best part is having a venue to display our upcycled and repurposed junk creations in ways to inspire others to reuse their own things or finds in creative ways.

Early this year I took on a project that I really had no clue how to complete, but in my usual manner I said "Yes, I can." My customer recently purchased a piece of property with the old house...
