Donna definitely has a very authentic style but I thought I would share some ways I have incorporated the same elements into our home -rustic, nature's elements, unique, authentic (found objects and antiques), clean lines and creativity (thriftiness):
Using rough cut wood, knots and all, for boxes, trays or benches is also a rustic touch I like to include in our fairly new home. One example is shown here in our kitchen beverage center.
I love being creative (and saving money!) and make my own quilts, pillows and crocheted throws,
and enjoy painting signs and furniture.
