About

There is art to be found in everything, just take the time to see...

I have been retired since 2006 from the NVANG, a Veteran, I decided to get a college degree. While there, I took a few art classes and found that I enjoyed it.

I began to find the "art" in everything...from animal skulls, sheds, rusty or rustic items, wood, barbed wire, old windows to recyclable items. Even my husband brings everything home for me to take a look at "just in case" it can become a 'treasure'. Everything has the potential to be repurposed, you just have to seek the possibility and the beauty it once had.

Our ranching friends call me the "trash collector" which is funny since we own a trash & recycling business. Many of the pieces used arebfrom the business, scouting, riding, shopping etc...the possibilities are endless.

As I am riding with our friends, scouting and scanning the mountains for the cows, I also scan the terrain, as there is always something to find...I will find sheds, animal skulls & rusty things which I grab and tie on my trusty horse, Joker. Much of my materials are found in the mountains of Nevada, old ranches/homesteads, antique stores, from cowboys, etc.

Sometimes, I get really lucky in finding more then 1 skull or sheds, a pair from the same buck is a real treasure! One time I found 5 skulls in one go! Soon, those will be available in my shop! Can't wait!

After we discuss the options, solutions, etc... and item is accepted for return, there is a 10% restocking fee of the item cost for items accepted for in-stock purchases. Buyer pays all return shipping costs. Refund, if given, will be after item is in my possession.

NO refunds or exchanges for any custom orders.

If your order arrives damaged, please let me know immediately. Pictures are required to work with shipping company.

I will always strive to find the best solution to every problem! Please contact me before you leave feedback.


Every package will include a tracking number. When an item is shipped, depending on the carrier, in general most items will arrive within a week of the ship date. Etsy should notify you when a package is shipped!

Please allow additional shipping time during holidays, especially during Christmas. Holiday seasons can delay shipment up to two additional weeks because of the amount of packages in transit. Express Shipping can be purchased depending on the order size and customization of the order. If desired, please contact us for express shipping additional costs.


I handcraft each item shown & no two items will be exact. Several different pictures of similar items have been displayed, however, there will be some noticeable or slight variations.

I am unable to duplicate the exact item, as the hondo lays differently due to the stiff/softness of the rope, or other variations in the item that is crafted. Other variations, like wrapping, is dependent on rope or what is being wrapped.

Custom orders have their own ad as prices will vary due to specs or sizing, # of ropes, etc. Please email with any questions, see FAQ regarding custom orders.

Most ads have pictures of what I can do, and is more for viewing and ideas for your custom order.

*Prices of items already made are separate from custom orders.


Lariat Rope basket making is done by using a soldering gun that melts the rope.

At times and to ensure quality work, burn marks, sharp points/areas or other variations me be found or present on the item. Also note, the ropes used are actual ropes that were used on the ranch or in a rodeo from calf or team roping.

I do not wash them, and they will have hair and dust on them. They won't have the poo on them, as I don't care to work with that..but I like the "dirty" of the rope as it allows me to bring the colors (for colored ropes) of the rope out. I have several in my home and there is no smell.

I haven't immersed in water before or after creation, however, I wrapped a planter and it has been outside since I made it without any issues.


Because a soldering gun is used for the rope making, there may/can have some sharp point, though I do my best to catch them, some may escape my attention... I am burning the ropes and there can be dark marks or other variations from the burning...

These are actual ropes used on the ranches and rodeo's, and there will be hair and dirt on them.

We are a pet friendly home, but are non-smokers.

If you have allergies, please contact me and so we can make it so that you can have one of these items in your home.


Though some items have a shipping cost, I will strive to get the best cost for shipping your item. Tubs, glass, large, heavy, etc., may/will require extra shipping, it will be at buyers expense. I will wrap item so that it arrives in excellent and protected condition.

Currently, there is a fee to the items, once an item is purchased, I will get you the exact shipping cost of your item, however some items may be too heavy to ship at that price and buyer is to cover the cost...

If shipping is less then the stated fee, a refund will be issued with 3 days or soon on my end. Variations will be noted based on banking institutions.


At this time, shipping is only within the United States. No overseas or outside areas.


I custom make the rope items and they can be of any size, height or dimension as they are handcrafted... Those that I have already made and still available and are excluded.

For example, if you have a specific area or space is limited, let me know the size you need and I will do my very best to have the item fit (I would need exact measurements).

Please use the Custom Order ad as it has the variations; note that items already made have a set price, custom orders have a different price due to variations of your order.

Shoot me a message and we can see if we can make it work.


Some ropes will NOT be the same ropes listed. I have a variety of brands, lays, lengths and colors available and they are chosen randomly.

These ropes have been used on the Ranch or Arena. They will/may have dust, dirt, hair, and other gross things on them. They are dusted off, I just have to prepare people in case they are sensitive or have allergies.

Ropes are not washed as I keep them authentic. The dark markings that remain in the ropes are rubber burns. The burns are caused by cowboys dallying the ropes around their saddle horns that they wrapped with rubber to protect the leather from being damaged while working/roping cattle.


Please contact me for your custom orders, for specification, size, color, # of ropes needed, bling, etc.

Items have a base price, but may/can have additional fees if your size requires more then the rope indicated or other variations.

Please contact me for your custom work; and please visit any ad for your inspiration, colors, style, etc.

I will work with you through the whole process, including additional fees.
