About Us

My husband and I have been crafting for the past 25 years. Of course, this has evolved from floppy-eared rabbits to now lots of woodworking, furniture, homespun dolls, and hand painted decorative wood. We have a passion for creating hand crafted items. Now, with lots of encouragement from our customers, we have decided to start our own website so that shopping is available at everyone's convenience.

We are Christians who faithfully attend the Spring Hill Church of Christ. We currently have other jobs driving school buses for our local school districts when we are not creating. Harlan drives a special needs bus, and I drive a standard bus with lots of great students. We also love these jobs. We live in Trenton, Ohio with our two daughters who help us tremendously. Not to mention, Harlan's dad who also helps us with the building. What would we do without him?!?!

We make our furniture with our own patterns and with hand-picked wood. We have spent years finding just the right paints and finishes to make our furniture unique. Our customers take our items home to display and come back looking for more. We have a desire to make only the best. Now we want to expand our passion of creating with a larger venue. This is a family business and we want to keep it that way. We want to share our painting and sewing with as many folks as possible. We love what we do and look forward to meeting lots of new friends and sharing our passion with you. Thanks for visiting our website!
