What is Nature’s Way?

“Nature is pleased with simplicity.”  -Isaac Newton

“Nature does nothing uselessly.” – Aristotle

“Never does nature say one thing and Wisdom another.” – Juvenal

“Observe, and you will see that Nature lets nothing go to waste.” – Carol Staton


Nature’s Way offers eclectic, recycled, quirky home and garden decor, plants, art, jewelry, natural bath and body products. We buy and sell primarily from local sources.  Our inventory is ever-changing and a few items are on sale at my Etsy store.

I make and sell simple benches designed by Aldo Leopold, one of the founders of the environmental movement in the 1930s era of the Dust Bowl. In his honor, I make them from reclaimed wood and finish them with all-natural milk paint, tung oil, and citrus solvent.

Plants include native wildflowers and grasses, succulents, carnivorous pitcher plants, and unusual perennials.

I sell Real Milk Paint products and all kinds of materials and odds and ends to help crafters and do-it-your-selfers with their projects.

Also on hand are the best books I know of to help people learn to appreciate and garden with native plants. If I can, I buy used books to sell.

My Little Free Library offers adult and children’s books and some free goodies from the store:”Take a book, Leave a book.”

Look for announcements of upcoming classes to help you co-create in your own home and garden, and community music or selling events that take advantage of the half-acre property with fish pond, native grass and wildflower meadow, covered porches, fire pit, and comfortable indoor living room.
