MEET KELLY

I am an artist, entrepreneur and adventurer from Western Wisconsin.

Join me as I set out on back road adventures to flea markets and thrift stores in search of treasures that were discarded but still full of potential, and asking to be given a new life.   See how I transform dressers and other furniture, along with how I incorporate rusty finds into our 1920s farmhouse.

I love random, spontaneous adventures. I love traveling all over the United States, especially to places I have never been before. I love creating.  I have always been interested in art, projects, and working hard  since I was very young.   I grew up in a household with a dad that was always including me in his projects, whether it was sweeping up the sawdust after he cut wood, unscrewing the oil filter under a car during an oil change,  or helping him hammer nails into a deck.   I was also blessed with a mother who was so great at keeping my siblings and I busy with craft and baking projects.  As a child,  I was continually challenged to grow and step outside of my comfort zone, while learning useful skills that have now come into play in a great way in my life.  I take pride in including my two children in many projects that I work on.  Besides Endless Acres Farmtiques, I am also a photographer, and enjoy creating jewelry and art for adventurous souls like myself.  I am employed with Hope Gospel Mission at Hope Gospel Mission Bargain Center where I work in the Home Decor area specializing in Merchandising and Social Networking.  I am the proud mother of 2 precious children and the wife of a hard working husband.

I started the Endless Acres Farmtiques D.I.Y. blog several years ago, when I had several people contact me asking me to start one and share how I do things and to be a source of inspiration for others looking to tackle tasks and projects around their own home.      I have big dreams, and I am taking small steps, daily to reach them & look forward to the future when I can see my vision meet with Gods timing, watch it come to life and one day open up a country flea market style store in the loft of our little red barn.  Until then, I will continue to create, build, blog and inspire.  If you are interested in purchasing a custom creation by Endless Acres Farmtiques, head on over to the shop to see our featured items, follow us on Facebook or contact us via our contact page.

Transformation.  That is where I find beauty, in the process of change, in the faith of possibility and in the transformation of something that was into something that now is.

Just as God allows us to  to transform ourselves into something greater with His love and tender care, I believe that pieces of furniture and unwanted household items can also be rescued, renewed, and once again re-loved.

There is so much beauty in stepping back and looking at something after it has been transformed.  I understand, that to see, feel and imagine the possibilities in something doesn’t always come easy, which is why I have created this blog to help others start to view items with a new set of eyes and to learn to see possibility in the ordinary.
