Driving down the side streets of Murphysboro, full, lush shade trees line the streets to the quiet neighborhood where Patti Rath has lived and worked for the last thirty years. The brick bungalow she and her husband share is a prime example of the early twentieth century Arts & Crafts movement in architecture, when homes were built with simple designs and handcrafted artistry, made of brick, with fireplaces and wide porches with thick square columns. This style of home is perfect for Rath’s motto in life and business: she prefers to keep things simple.
