Awhile back, my sister-in-law messaged me asking if we might have any use for some horseshoes. She lives out in Arizona, and found a bunch on her property from some horses they had boarded. She thought maybe we could use them for some creative project or other.

I know many of you have been waiting for this, with all of my teasing about it! And I have been dying to show you my custom-built farmer’s table home office desk, that that my husband made for me. For this first post, I am simply sharing with you the build itself, and some of the story behind it. In upcoming posts, I will show you my workspace all set up and pretty. (When I get that far.)
So first, to put my appreciation and excitement in context here, you should know how I have been working.
