So! You found my website! And you're asking yourself, "Self? What IS all this Redneck Feng Shui business, and WHO is Redneck Feng Shui?" Please allow me to introduce myself!
My name is Mary. I am a regular gal, living the Dream in beautiful Texas. My husband, Mr. Man, and I have a little ol' dusty house under the oaks on 25 acres of pasture and woods...creatures abound: squirrel, deer, cows, armadillos, raccoons, possum: all sorts of critters doing their busy work all around us. Our children are grown and gone, but we went and got new ones: 2 dogs and 2 cats. Somehow, they're more demanding than the human ones! I am the WHO behind Redneck Feng Shui. Mr. Man is my capable assistant, which means he totes a lot of stuff for me, builds me all sorts of gadgets when I need them, and offers a guy perspective on whatever project I am into - which is a nice way of saying he tells me what I am doing wrong, then takes over and does it right! He's also my cheerleader and a good promoter. Yep, he's a keeper.
What does Redneck Feng Shui DO? Well, I wear all sorts of hats. I maintain an Etsy store that has some pretty nifty vintage and handmade stuff, I am an Ebay seller, and I participate in Farmer's Markets and Craft Shows around East and Central Texas. I create my own Artisan Spice Blends that are small batched and absolutely delicious! I will be posting a list of the tasty blends I am offering this year, and will actively update the Events page letting you know where I will be with those yummy Love offerings...man, they really are good...I sell a line of soap at some shows called Filthy Farmgirl. All natural, handmade in Hawai'i, and the BEST. SOAP. EVER. You can see me at Craft Shows throughout the year with a variety of stuff from the spice blends to the soaps to other handmade items. My Events page will tell you what all I will have at each event, as it changes! I also maintain a booth at an antique mall in downtown Historic Montgomery! Check out my facebook page for the address, then come check out my booth!
What was that? "Where in the world did you get that crazy name, Mary?" Is that what you said? I'll tell you: my home and life is a mish mash of country living, total Spiritual seeking, and hippie attitude. Wikipedia defines Feng Shui as "...a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment." When I arrange things in my home, I am often filling spaces in a balanced, eye-pleasing way, with everything from Deer mounts to pastel art to funky vintage furniture to stained glass. My daughter said once our house looks like "a hippie resale shop" - but there is always the Texas twist - Willie Nelson photos, the ever present Deer mounts, the American flag always flying...all put together in such a way that the eye never tires or thinks something is off balance. THAT, my friends, is Redneck Feng Shui.
THAT is what I am bringing to you. Vintage and handmade that is harmonious, interesting, fun, tasty, pleasing, beautiful, creative, and distinctive. Always made or curated with lots of Love, Aloha, Namaste' and Spirit.
