I love love love finding junk and turning it into decorative pieces for my home and garden. I enjoy watching HGTV and finding new ideas on Pinterest to tweek and redecorate my home. I love working outside in my yard and garden and enjoy the quietness of country life. I also enjoy helping my husband with our cattle herd, which brings back memories of growing up on a large ranch in eastern Colorado.
