A "sign" of Spring....

As I visited our Etsy Cottage Style place today, I noticed many blogs about the freezing temperatures that most of our Members are experiencing. I also noticed that from the cold Jersey Shore to a not very sunny California, it seems like we are all ready to add some pastel colors to our decor, do some gardening and enjoy the warmth of the Spring Season. And what better way to achieve a "I'm ready for Spring" look that with the ultimate cottage accessory: a cute, inviting sign.
No matter the style or the size, signs make a powerful statement for a very little money since pretty much any piece of wood can be turned into one. A leftover piece of fence or an old cupboard door are just some of the surfaces we can use to let people know how we feel about our nest...


The letters can be stamped, stenciled, decoupaged and even free handed (don't worry if your writing is not perfect, that will only add to the charm!)...

Now, if you would like to have the cutest sign on the block, you have to visit Tami at Pink Butter Creme...the name says it all!... here's a little tease:



She uses the best palette of the Season and the sweetest hand painted flowers....

Is someone you love moving away or starting a new adventure? This pretty thing could be a great gift!

A little glitter makes this one my favorite!

So even if your backyard is covered with snow and your nights are still spent around the fireplace, go ahead and visit Tami's Etsy, I bet you will love it! You can also pay her a blog visit at Pink Butter Creme, her photographs and sweet creations will put you, and your loved ones in a Warm Spring Mood... while you are there, don't miss the tea party she organized for Olivia's Third B-Day...too cute!!!
