From Fallen to Fabulous

It’s a kind of magic.

Or, more likely, hard work, ingenuity, and great imagination on the part of owners Sabra and John Jensen.

Located in Sale Creek, Tn, Sawmill Creations turns out some pretty awesome products made from fallen trees in the Ringgold and Chattanooga areas due to storms in past years.   They are giving new life to materials using resources around them that are otherwise dispensable to create unique and beautiful items that will be cherished for a lifetime.

They always go the extra mile for everyone at Sawmill Creations, offering many items customized and made for special occasions.

Some of their items can be sweet and sentimental, while others exhibit quite a bit of humor, which I certainly appreciate!


Sabra says, “Our products include rustic wedding signs and decor, rustic primitive home decor and gifts, unique Christmas gifts, fireplace mantles and structures such as dog houses, play houses, sheds, most any item that can be made from wood.”

And they’ve also began adding pillows to their line up.  This pillow caught my eye in particular as this is a saying that I remember from my childhood and would always quote to my son when he was little.

You can find Sabra and John’s work online in their Etsy shop as well as Ebay.  They also have an online presence on Facebook and Instagram.

You will want to follow these two for sure!  There is always something new, and of course they’re always bringing the YUM Factor!

Speaking of Yum, Sabra has shared one of her favorite recipes with us.  I follow her on Facebook and noticed that she’s not only creating beautiful wood works, but also loves to cook.  We’ll call this Sabra’s Fried Shrimp with Sriracha Hot Sauce!

1 lb Cleaned shrimp (small in size)

1/2 c Mayo

1/4 c Sriracha hot sauce

Dried red chili flakes

1/2-3/4 c Cornstarch to coat the shrimp

Raw spinach

Green onions

 First, mix the mayo, hot sauce, and chili flakes to make a sauce for coating the shrimp.

Then you bread the shrimp with the cornstarch and deep fry till lightly brown.

Drain the shrimp on a paper towel, then put in a bowl and coat with the sauce.

Serve in a spinach lined bowl and top with chopped green onions.

Sabra says this is definitely YUM!
