Every home has a story

I came across a lovely sign recently but it was made by a company in the States. By the time we in the UK pay for international shipping, if it's even offered at all, this usually bumps the price up beyond a reasonable amount. Which is why if I ever see anything I like I try to jot it down or make a sketch so that one day, when I have time, I can have a go at making my own version.



Here is my version of that sign, which I have just made for my sister.

She is really pleased with it and is going to hang it by her kitchen sink.

  3. You'll excuse my bias, but I like the original better. But maybe that's because I own the company that designed it! I'm glad you found our product inspiring and want you to know that we've just acquired a UK distributor, so you'll soon have access to our whole line of inspirational home furnishings.

  4. Hello Mark,
    thanks for your comment on my blog (www.thenestuk.blogspot.com).
    What an honour! I agree mine is very amateurish but its the best I could do as no-one in the UK seems to make this kind of thing. I'm glad you've found a distributor in the UK as I find so many of your signs and frames just gorgeous. Can you let me know who your distributor in the UK is as my sister and I are suckers for soppy sayings and these would make ideal presents for us.
    Thanks so much,
    Samantha
