  4. I can't decide which one I like better. It's a tie between the family signs (like you have) and the soap maker sign. They are all very cool!

    Family Love!!! You may discover a rambling email from a technology challenged American--sorry! I thought this would have me comment on the previous post. I just love the sign your aunt and uncle made for you and Lee--it is definitely the one I would choose.

    ReplyDelete
  39. FAMILY LOVE for sure!!! That is such beautful detail. It would go perfect in my entry as I can't seem to find something for this crazy angled wall that seperates the stairway from the entry way.

  41. There are so many that are wonderful. For me it came between "saltysprings Organic greens" and "funky bunnky" I love how they still keep their signs organic in their look, retaining the beauty of the wood. I have a linear drawing I did when my husband and I were dating. He was in the USA and I was in the UK. We dated for a whole year long distance and then I came over here and married him. I was just visiting but he proposed and I stayed. The drawing that I did is two people entwined and I know they could put it into the sign. Like they did the leaf in SaltySprings Organic greens. Its our 4year anniversary coming and that would be a great gift for him. fingers crossed X
