My Latest Fantastically Vintage-y Purchase

I love, love, love vintage inspired, antiqued signs.  In fact, I think they’ve replaced my previous love for vinyl wall words.  Nah.  Who am I kidding?  I love them both.

I’ve recently been searching for vintage sign inspiration on Pinterest, and of course, Pinterest didn’t let me down:

I could certainly make a sign for our nest myself and I probably will some day, but when the fantastically talented Susan Haskins from Maple & Magnolia posted this photo on her January 25th Wednesday’s Wares post:

I knew I had to have her Guest Cottage sign right away!!  I sent her an email message within minutes of receiving her post and screamed through the email:  Susan, I have to have it!

It finally arrived on my doorstep the other day:

Now I just need to find the perfect spot for it!

If you’ve never heard of the blog, Maple & Magnolia, and you love all things vintage and farmhouse like I do, then please stop by and show Susan some love.  Susan is a humorous writer and a breath of fresh air in blogland.  I’ll warn you, though, that you may have to stop yourself from drooling all over your keyboard once you take a look inside her home.  You’ll know what I mean when you get there!  I have no doubt you’ll be absolutely delighted you paid her a visit.  Enjoy!



  1. The sign is awesome, Laura! I will have to check out Susan’s blog!


  2. Aw, Laura. Thanks for the very generous and kind words! You made my day. Glad you like the sign! :)

  3. Love signs too and of course Pinterest!! Your sign is fantastic!

  4. I love signs too. I have several and my sister made me a really neat Subway Art sign for Christmas personalized just for me. I will do a blog on it soon. I just joined as a follower and hope you will drop by my NEW blog and join me too. Hope to see you there!!

  5. I can’t wait to see where you hang it! WAY beautiful!! ;)
