Sometimes, you have a particular board in mind and need something short, succinct and sweet to paint on it for your garden.
Here are a few of my ideas, some gleaned from across the web, others from pictures on Pinterest, but even if they're found elsewhere you can still give them your own personal touch. I keep tabs on them, adding more here when I come across them.
I've seen some very simple signs that the artisan has fancied up with some little extras that just give it so much character.
What kinds of extras? Well, tiny flowers or vines climbing up the letters, a little flock of chickens or birds, or just some fancy curlicues can be exactly right to add your own flavor.
Glory Be, the root cellar
Mercantile, the power shack
Livery, the wood shed
Eggporeum, the chicken house
Bliss, storage shed
Pearls Place, our tiny house
