To enhance a persons life through their furniture restoration
To bring a smile to the world through my creations
To pay it forward by recycling items that have been,
“Kicked to the curb”
and redesigned at my Little Shop That Can.
Most importantly, HAVE FUN
I do not consider myself an artist.
I would not want to insult a real artist,
like my daughter Meagan.
I am a creator
Not thee creator
Just a creator

Sometimes we create from scratch
Sometimes we recreate with items we have found.
Our Pewter projects start with pigs.
Our Copper projects starts in sheets.
Our Steel projects begins with scrap.
Our Furniture is recycled from Curbside.
Our Lighting is assembled from everything, but wired with new components.
But we always like to help out by paying it forward with our creations.
