About

I'm a farm girl at heart living on the edge of the city

I started my little Etsy shop back in 2011, making hats and other items from repurposed wool sweaters. My shop has certainly evolved as I've developed new skills and confidence with my sewing machine, turning my passion toward home décor.

My children were my first inspiration for my wool animal hats and pillows. I made hats for them and their friends, and sold many in my shop and locally. I discontinued making them for Etsy because big box retailers also began selling similar styles for much less (and also lesser quality), it was too hard to compete...

After making wool items, I turned to another fiber that I loved just as much, burlap...I love burlap, I love how rustic and raw it is. I love how burlap can be both formal and casual at the same time. I love stenciling everything by hand, handcutting every stencil for every order, every time. I'm always thinking up new ideas for my pillows, I don't want to get bored with my designs.

I've also added new handmade items to my repertoire. Handmade wooden signs, made with the same attention to detail as my custom pillows, are now available in my shop depending on my time availability.

I also love everything vintage and farmhouse. I love old typewriters, old kitchen scales, and old feedsacks. I am a true animal lover. I have a miniature schnauzer and I used to own and show Quarter Horses. Animals are a true passion of mine, and I hope it shows in my designs.

I'm always trying to change things around, improve and add new designs and items. I love what I do and I'm always looking to the future. I strive to make my customers happy!

Hello, thank you for checking out my shop. I work my hardest to make my customers happy, and I hold myself to the highest of standards. I love making unique handmade items, and I hope you will agree that they are excellent quality.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal, Credit Cards and Etsy Gift Cards
Shipping
I ship using USPS first class, priority mail, or standard shipping. Every item is shipped with a tracking number that will be provided to you once your item ships

Ready to ship items ship within 1-3 business days.

Pillows are typically shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Large and/or heavy items, shipping is considered an estimate only. I try to estimate shipping coast to coast, but sometimes it will be higher than estimated. I will contact you if more shipping is needed. Shipping overages greater than $2 will be promptly refunded.

Western US/West Coast states, please be advised that it costs a significant amount of money to ship large items from Ohio to the Western/West Coast states. I will ship the most cost effective way, even if that means that your item will be sent Standard Shipping (meaning it will take a couple of days longer to arrive versus priority mail) I will still use a tracking system.

***I promptly refund shipping overages greater than $2***

If an item is damaged or lost during shipping, please bring it to my attention. USPS Priority mail now offers free insurance up to $50 of item value. Breakable items damaged during shipment that are not insured will not be refunded. I recommend insurance on breakable or fragile items. Contact me for more information or a quote.

Custom orders are not refundable/returnable.

If you are not happy with your item, please return it (at your expense) within 3 business days for a refund. I will refund your purchase price (minus shipping).

I do my best to describe every item in full detail. If I miss something, please bring it to my attention.
Refunds and Exchanges
Custom orders are not refundable/returnable.

If you are not happy with your item, please return it (at your expense) within 3 business days for a refund. I will refund your purchase price (minus shipping).
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my items are handmade and unique. All of my patterns are produced by either myself or my husband. I take great pride in that, and I work very hard to make a special and unique item that will be appreciated by others. I do my best to represent each and every item correctly.
I also love to do custom orders when I have the time. Feel free to contact me and we can talk about what you would like. I want all of my items to be special.
