Announcement   Welcome to Jack Rabbit Flats! Jack Rabbit Flats came to be when we moved to the middle of no where in west Texas. I always wanted to live in the country and now I do, along with the cows, donkeys and yes, the jack rabbits!

I am the 'jack of all trades-master of none' in the art world. Watercolors are my love, but I have been away from them for so long that I wouldnt even know where to start to paint with them again. I do still paint, but when I do, it is on furniture and with acrylics.

My Etsy shop gives me an outlet to keep my hands busy and make a little money along the way. I do what ever I feel the urge to at the time and that is reflected in my shop. I love using old, weathered items to make new, wonderful art. If someone wants to buy that art, then that is just the icing on the cake!!

My son has recently joined me in the shop. He has severe back problems and cannot work until that can be corrected. He is learning to work in wood and is using our very small selection of wood working tools. Using old weathered wood from the ranch, his hands and a creative spirit, he creates wonderful crosses, hearts, trivets and other items of wood.

About

Jack Rabbit Flats

When we moved to the ranch, years ago, it isolated us a lot. It's what we wanted, but it limited my ways of selling my art and crafts. Then, I found out about Etsy and opened a shop as an experiment. The experiment has worked and I have been here since, selling my wares.

Living here on the ranch has been my lifelong dream. I love the isolation, altho it took a bit of getting used to. We do not live where you can run to the store if you run out of bread, or if I run out of a color of paint. I started doing mosaics, mainly crosses. I had a couple of barbed wire crosses left from a show and decided to list them for sale. I sold a few of the barbed wire crosses, then started making hearts and it has all been good. I sell enough to have to make more and that is all I need. My hands stay busy enough to satisfy my creativity, but not so much to over whelm me. It's all good.

My son came to live at the ranch in the summer of 2015 after having back surgery. He had been making walking sticks from cedar posts. After moving to the ranch, he branched out into making trivets, crosses and hearts from the many oak and mesquite burls that are on the property. He is making beautiful items and learning much.

    Hi! I have enjoyed my Etsy shop since Oct. 2009. I live on a ranch near a very small town named Ft. McKavett, in west TX with my husband of 49 years, my 3 dogs, 2 barn cats, 2 donkeys and a handful of cattle.

    Donny is my son who now lives at the ranch. He is doing wonderful wood work from the many pieces of burl mesquite and oak wood that is found at the ranch.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I now accept Etsy's Direct Check out and Paypay. Direct Check out will allow you to use your credit card.
Shipping
I normally ship within the first or second day after purchase. On a rare occasion, it might be 3 days after purchase before I can get the item shipped. Your item will be well packed. My husband worked for UPS for 31 years and I know how to pack something for shipping!! I will do my best to make sure that they arrive in good shape. Because I live so far out in the country, I ship through the post office. My mail man picks up the package from my mail box and takes them to town and they are shipped out that afternoon. The next day, the mail man brings back my receipt which will have a tracking number on it. If you should ever need the tracking number, please contact me.
Refunds and Exchanges
You have 7 days to contact me if for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase. I will be more than happy to work with you if that situation should arise. I do my best to describe the item, but there can always be unforseen problems when making purchases over the internet.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will be happy to make custom orders. Just convo me and we will work together on it.
