Perfect for my other daughter the pink and country girl! She lives in Green Bay away from mom and I just wanted to give her a little something special to show how lucky I am to have a beautiful daughter like her!

This will hang in my guest room when a home we are building is finished. I plan to get a different one for each guest room. Beautifully made and packaged!

I ordered 6 different horseshoes and I love each one! Three are for my new home in Michigan, one I hung at my home Illinois in my kitchen and the other two are for my daughter and daughter in law who is expecting her first girl in a few weeks! Just love this item so unique and special. It comes with gift tags a special nail for hanging a wonderful gift box with a beautiful saying written on it1

About

A simple photo can change your life!

What if you could do what you love & provide beautiful, unique pieces to friends, family and Etsy shoppers? I think I'm lucky enough to be able to do that!

Hello! My name is Colleen Lynch and this Etsy adventure all started with a unique picture of a horseshoe hanging by a ribbon on a door. The photo captivated me with its simplistic beauty and I loved the thought that each day I could be greeted with a small symbol of luck.

Being a creative person at heart and having had a relationship with horses that started early in my life, this image stuck with me and I just couldn’t get it off my mind. Maybe that was because, as an only child, having a horse as a companion had a powerful impact on me. Their brave hearts, courage, and willingness to give taught me important lessons about life. Life is a mix of joy and sorrow, sometimes challenging us to dig deep to find the strength we need to get through the really tough times. But even though we may face life with passion and a fierce heart, don’t we all wish for a little bit of luck sometimes?

Recreating that image became a must for me! I am fortunate enough to have friends who own these great creatures, so I decided to reach out to them in hopes to find some used horseshoes. My friend Deanna was kind enough to offer me a bag full of horseshoes she had on her farm. After many trips to the craft store and a lot of trial and error, my first horseshoe was created. My Mom’s birthday is in late November and I thought who better to receive my first shoe than my Mom? As she opened it, I saw a heartfelt smile come to her face. When she asked me where I bought it, I was thrilled to tell her I’d made it just for her. Her reaction made me believe that others might like to receive one of these little good luck charms as well. I made a few more and gifted them to the ladies at work for Christmas. They, too, wanted to know where to get one to give as a gift of luck to someone they loved.

Beaming with pride in what I created and the smile that it brought to those who received it, my creative juices started flowing! Not only were the possibilities of different designs endless, but with each shoe I gave, the thought of bringing a message of luck and inspiration into the homes of people I cared about... well that was all it took and with that.. . Rusty Hill Farms was created!

What started as a simple gift has reminded me how much I love to create and how what I create needs to be done out of love and compassion.. And a little bit of luck for all of us, isn’t bad either.

On any given weekend you will find me shopping flea markets and antique malls in Northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Each visit to each different venue always offers me a chance to find fun items both for Rusty Hill Farms and my own home! I enjoy decorating and design and have managed a fabric/interior design store for the last 13 years! Creating is my passion!

Thank you,
Colleen

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

All horseshoes will come in a box all ready to be given as a gift. The shoe will be in a crinkle filled box, contain a "gift pocket" with an authentic horseshoe nail, the story of the horseshoe and some ideas on where to place them. The outside of the box will have a ribbon ready for you to attach a gift tag. If you would like a custom tag made or would like me to send one along, I can. Just let me know the occasion and I'll use on of my stock tags!

Custom and personalized orders

Production time will vary depending upon exact stock or availability of your order. This will be agreed upon before payment will be taken. I will research to the best of my ability the availability of all the pieces required to fill your order.
Please note that computer monitors may vary and pictures, although I try to make them as accurate as possible, they may not show every detail of the piece. If you have any questions about the piece or color, please let me know prior to purchasing the item and I will give you any information you may require.

Custom and personalized orders

Each shoe will have characteristics inherent to the age and wear of the shoe. The embellishments used may also be vintage and will/may have imperfections. These are not considered defects and should be looked at before purchase. These imperfections will not be accepted as a reason for return.

Wholesale availability

We would love to be able to do a custom order for you. Weddings and showers are always great places to use our horseshoes. From simple horseshoes to embellished designs, we are ready for you. At the time of the inquiry, we can discuss time frame, details, and expectations! The horseshoes make great table numbers, place cards, wedding or baby shower favors. Even themed parties are perfect for places for a Bit of Luck!
