Rurality Newsletter

It's all about Rustic

Sign up for Rurality, my newsletter about all things rustic; if you like making your own garden art out of upcycled junk, or want to know more about techniques for aging and weathering barnboard, or painting garden signs for your garden, this is the place to be.


I've been an avid junquer for years, and I've so enjoyed making my own rustic garden art - even before it became the latest fad. 

With so many years of experience behind me, I have lots to share about making some of the crafts on my site.

There are a lot of tutorials explaining how to make some really unique garden art and porch decor - the newsletter will have a link or two to things that may interest you.

Here are a few things that seem to crop up a lot around here;

  • Hypertufa - that mixture of Portland cement, peat moss and perlite (among other things) that makes the most amazing and fun containers.

  • Twiggy stuff, like arbors and trellises, gazebos and obelisks, and the techniques you'll need to make your own.

  • Junk Gardening - taking cast off trash, combining it in imaginative ways to make a weird and wonderful ornament or piece of garden art.

  • Vintage displays of all kinds of collectibles.

  • Painted signs and pots for your garden.

  • and much more...check out the back issues page.

Join in the fun, and get your rustic on!
