Shop Small Business Saturday!

Shop Small Business Saturday!

As a small business owner, I can tell you that I (and others in this world of small businesses) really do a happy dance with each purchase. For me, this is my side hustle.

Because you really are what makes the world go around in a small business, we want to give you some incentive to shop with us, especially on "Small Business Saturday"!

To me, a serving tray is an accessory that brings people together or...

Texas Cut Out: complete!

It is complete! This one is one of my favorite pieces! I love how each piece of reclaimed wood took the stain differently. I stained it all once, sanded it down and polished it with a satin polyurethane coat. Two hooks have been attached to the back for secure wall hanging. It was a fun piece to make! Ready for the next project...
