A Little About Me!

Raised out west. I grew up in my younger years on a cattle ranch in Northern Nevada. We moved from the ranch closer to a big city, where I attended high school & a university. There, I received my degree in education. I have since retired and I’m seeking new adventures big & small.

Rustic & Refound has become a creative outlet for me, where I love sharing my home, ideas, adventures, DIY projects & little about me. You should know that I don’t always follow rules, & I tend to do & go where my heart leads me. I enjoy traditions, making things pretty, & I love to use flowers inside my home and out in my garden.

If I show you my home decor, don’t judge! Since I don’t follow the rules, I believe there is no right or wrong to personal designing of your space. I think you should fill your home with things you love ~ if it makes you happy, then it is perfect, & I’m all about the perfectly, imperfect.

I’m happiest when I can ride my horse & rope a few steers, but I will take setting up a picnic in a beautiful mountain meadow with gathered wildflowers for my decor and a majestic mountain scenery in the background.

When I tell you that I love pretty things, some of my favorites are pretty horses, pretty gardens, pretty homes and vintage china & fine stemware. I’m obsessed with old chairs. No, really! I have one in almost every room & some still in storage. True story! I might even drag an old farm table out in the field/meadow for a gal pals’ brunch.

Back in November of 2019, my hubby & I took on one of our greatest adventures. We decided to build our dream home. We removed an existing modular from its foundation and hired a contractor to put this idea into motion. Using borrowed house plans, along with the original architect, lots of dreaming and praying we went for it. This is one of those things I prayed about heavily. Our new Home has been such a blessing.

I have been married for over 30 years. I kind of think I needed to document that too!

In my best way I’m going to photograph everything, because I like to document what inspires me.

You might see a few things I make & sell. If you are interested, you can contact me through my contact page or get in touch through my other social media pages: https://www.instagram.com/_tammymoore/

So, this is me on the other side of these pages. My blog has given me a place to reach out to others a bit each day.

 Favorite Bible verse:

Proverbs 3:5-6. Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your insight or understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.

I will lift up my eyes to the hills- from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121

Some Favorite Quotes

These quotes were found here on this page. I left them because they pretty much sum up most of my thinking!

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
