Beyond the Picket Fence

“I am a 46 year old mother of 3, plus 1 sweet son waiting for me in heaven, wife to 1 (because let’s face it, who’d want more than 1!), junker, teacher, believer. I love hunting for junk that I can repurpose, build with or paint on (when I am not doing the mom gig!).I also love taking advantage of the great outdoors in this beautiful place I live, Montana.”
