Mountain Living Lazy Susan

I’ve been creating the Lazy Susan as an off shoot of the Mountain Living series for a while. They can be challenging to do, but we think they are worth it.

Mountain Living Mirror

A new addition to my Mountain Living series – the Mountain Living Mirror! It is like the clock, but with a mirror inserted as the accent feature. We hope you like it!

Mountain Living Clocks

I grew up on a ranch outside of Basalt, Co in the 60s and 70s long before Aspen or Glenwood were any big deal.

For the Love of the Aspen

Special orders welcome, takes 4 to 6 weeks.

Brindle Birds
