My Cafe Sign


Signs are fun to have in the house because they look nostalgic and often times have sweet little messages on them. Nowadays you can find new signs in just about any gift shop and even on eBay.

This cafe sign is a one-of-a-kind though and was made by my friend, Marsha, who owns a great shop in town. (note: I will be doing a post about her this week.)

Marsha makes signs out of old wood doors, windows, and scrap wood. When I saw this sign many years ago in her shop, I fell in love with it. Of course, it is in my favorite color, RED, and goes beautifully over my kitchen window. The valance was my first attempt at making one like I had seen in another antique shop. It is made out of a vintage tablecloth.

I think signs are very fun too, they add a certain something that regular art just can't!

Have a great day, Becky!

I just love your sign...I am a sign person as I have quite a few in my home, especially in my kitchen, though I am getting a few sprinkled here and there in my other rooms. Your curtain turned out very nice...you should be proud of yourself!
