Welcome to the Junk Ranch! 

This website reflects my love of hand-made, artsy, weathered, twiggy, woody, chippy, cottage-y, leathery, antlers, retro, rusty, cowboy, horsey, kitschy, red, Pendleton blankety, old...you get the picture...obsession that I have.

For half of my life I have collected, bought, and sold items from the above list of my obsessions. Today, I fly by the seat of my pants and do something different everyday. If I'm not out looking for junk, I am making something with the junk I have.

I live on a small farm...aka "the ranch"...with my family and we grow a lot of our own food and make many of the products we use every day...trying to be both sustainable and healthy. Currently, we are helping our daughter renovate a 70 year old cottage style house...see RENOVATION...if you want to follow along.

This website was started as a blog in 2009 to document the transition of my long time career in art and design to opening a handmade and vintage business. I update the blog still, from time to time, with current happenings here at the ranch. There is a wealth of information in the archives ranging from the horrible mistakes I made along the way to what I've been successful in, both in business and just plain living. I hope it can be helpful to you in some way. Enjoy!
