Treasures from Nature

Having a bird breeding business will certainly give you insight into the perfect birdhouse, and a creative array of colorful little bird abodes can be found at HouseofGourds, an Etsy shop. Kathy even grows her own gourds, which also turn into eye catching feeders. Retirement hasn't slowed this artist down and she keeps a busy schedule with local craft fairs in addition to her online business.

If you are looking for a pet turtle that won't wander off, you will be happy to discover her line of painted pet rocks. I find the coral snake very striking. How does that old rhyme go...Red next to black is friend to Jack; red next to yellow will kill a fellow. Kathy unfortunately discovered poison ivy upon moving to Wisconsin, but this has led to the creation of her soothing poison ivy soap, which she also sells locally.

Kathy crafts in Wisconsin, ships to the United States, and can also be found on eCrater. Please contact her if you are interested in a custom order or would like information on wholesale. Be sure to stop by her shop as this creative soul has other treasures waiting to be discovered.
