Welcome to Country Life Living. A Personal Note for you.

What Is Country Life Living?

Country Life Living is a deep connection between the mind, soul, emotions and our home the earth, lived out through the body. Our five senses are the gates through which all aspects of life and nature flow through into our very being.


   For me, Love is the greatest power of all. Love of nature seems to be disappearing today in life. I have lived in all the stages in life. The farmer as a boy that tilled the soil. The tradesman as a welder.

The department head a restoration company.

   The list could go on, however There is a saying” You can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy “This holds true for me. When I was a young country boy I farmed and spent all my time in nature and lived in peace, however as time passed the need and desire for wealth comes calling and so in search of wealth, we all go. I too.

As life went on, I would say I thought I was making it, however I lost something along the way.... Peace... Peace of mind, soul and emotions and my once had connection with nature.

   A time came when for the health of my soul, a complete change of life had to be taken. I took it.

For a hand full of years now I am back to where life once was with nature and peace.

I have a desire to share some of what I receive and create by working with nature with you.


   It’s very simple, all we must do is open our minds, our eyes, our ears.

Open our senses to what we have been given from God and experience true life.

In nature; The fragrance, The breeze, The color, The Sounds, So, slow down a little, ...

Life is truly short when we take and look from the end, back to the beginning.

I started this journey with this company to finish my life working with nature and peace.

I offer to you the work of my hands, my heart and my mind. My little company is just that.

I am not here to become what most seek. I am here to offer to you a little piece of that experience.

I am also here to pass on this little business to someone I love and for them to be able to work with nature and live in peace.

   All my pieces are repurposed, gathered from walks in the woods. All my work is by hand. Each piece is an original of its own, and I believe with all my heart, these pieces will be kept in your family for generations and valued.

I ask you for your support.

   Each piece of my items I make are made with great care.

I reclaim everything I can and do my best to remake into something beautiful. Why? it’s simple, to save resources of our earth, to reduce the waste of things just being sent to landfills, it’s my way of conservation.

  It takes more work this way. Yes, it’s much easier to just go to a store and purchase something that’s was made in assembly production lines or by, 3 D printers, computer robots or risen cast molds. There all very good systems of production and they do have their place and very cost effective if all one’s desires is to just make a lot of money.


   Money has its place and yes, we need it, however money never fills the heart. In all those methods something is lost. Peace, Joy and Love in the knowing of the making of the things we bring into our homes and life’s.

   I Offer By My Labor

  • All items that go into my lamps are UL Listed and are personally tested, inspected, and packaged by myself.
