Creative Sign Making


Why have a plain old sign when you can make something enchanting.
The open/closed sign is rarely going to be out in the elements so why not make it as decorative as the pieces inside. The one that will soon be gracing our front door was made from linen with a gold stamped design patch, fabric roses, hand written lettering patches, pink lace, black ribbon, vintage mother of pearl buttons and our shop title. The linen is almost the exact colour of our shop furniture so it seemed too good to miss.
