I 'heart' Rustic...

Intrigued by flea market finds, and what you could potentially use them for?  Me too - here's a few of mine along with some of the other crafts that fascinate and enthrall me:

Are you a Junk Gardener? 

If you appreciate weathered old barnboards sprinkled with some rustic salvage, twigs, painted in a shabby chic and primitive style along with a smattering of rust you just might be one.

If you're finding the thought of rural living more and more appealing, and frugality is your middle name, stick around and find out more about how to decorate your garden with natural and found materials.

A simpler lifestyle has appealed to many people all over the globe;

The simplicity appeals to their inner soul; rustic crafts satisfy their creative side.

With a renewed interest in repurposing, recycling and reusing, rustic crafts are the perfect place to use worn out and tired old things, giving them a new lease on life in your garden or home.

Garage sales, yard sales, thrift stores, estate sales, auctions and flea markets – you can always find something if you keep your imagination active and searching.

How do I use these strange and wonderful thrifty treasures?

Displays of succulent plants and xeric demonstration gardens are the perfect place to show off my creations of rustic crafts, twig fences and handmade garden art and sculptures.
