Favorites of the Week - Signs, Signs, Signs and more Signs

Each week will choose favorites for my Favorites of the Week (FOTW) page.  It might be one favorite or it could be 28. The item(s)  will be featured on the Home page on Monday or Tuesday and will remain on my FOTW page until the following Monday. Hope you enjoy. I'm sure these shopkeepers would love for you to visit their stores and see their other great items! ♥


This week my favorites of the week are signs!  Yes, all kinds of signs and all appropriate for the season or for giving.

Table Manners Dinner Rules Sign -  Typography Word Art in Black
One of my very favorite sign makers on Etsy is Barn Owl Primitives! Her
signs are completely handpainted and distressed a bit for that lovely vintage look
that we all love so much.  This is one of my favs: Table Manners Dinner Rules $75.
If you hurry quick, you can enter her giveaway on Facebook here.

Baseball Typography Word Art Sign  - Take Me Out to the Ball Game - This is the Perfect Coaches Gift
Also from Barn Owl Primitives is Baseball Typography $75.
Have baseball fans in the family? This sign would be a great addition to a family or game room or man cave.  If you are thinking of a sign for Christmas,
 please note that orders must be in by November 14th!




Personalized Name Frame in Black and White Alphabet Letter Photos (Custom Framed/Matted 10x20)
Personalized Name Custom Framed in Black $85.00
How about your name, special word or house numbers "written" in photographs of architectural details that resemble numbers and letters of the alphabet.  The creativity of people never ceases to amaze me. This is simply brilliant! What a wonderful gift idea! Prints are available framed and unframed. I hope you will visit Java Jane Designs and see all of the lovely possibilities for creating a very special keepsake for you or someone special in your life!  Think special anniversary, birth announcement, house warming...so many possibilities! If you would like to order something for Christmas, you must do so by December 10th. So make your plans now and get those orders into Jane.


The Difference is in the Detail...Carved Personalized Family Name Sign 7 x 20
Carved Personalized Wedding Sign $30.00
Signs of a Daydreamer offers fabulous signs that are carved with a router,or maybe the proper word is engraved since some of these signs look like engraved wedding invitations! After routing, the signs are hand painted and distressed. Scott, the daydreamer artist, has been making these signs since 1981 and has the experience and talent to create a beautiful and unique sign just for you and perfect for any occasion. Scott also has many fun signs in stock, so be sure to visit his shop! While you are there you must check out this fabulous Shabby Chalkboard and Magnetic Message Center!
If you are wanting a customized sign from Scott for Christmas, be sure to order it by December 5, 2010, to be sure you can get it by Christmas!
Heart and Flowers Framed Bible Verse Board Psalm 31/24
Hearts and Flowers Framed Bible Verse Board $28.00
If you know me, you know I LOVE folk art and that includes folk art signs, like this lovely little hand painted sign with words from Psalm 31 and a gorgeous decorative  border! Jennifer's shop, Mulberry Lane Folk Art, is a favorite of mine where you will not only find other charming signs but bird houses, game boards and a variety of other folk art crafts.  Jennifer does custom work too. Be sure to contact her to find out the last date to order to receive custom orders by Christmas.



dance with joy handmade tile
Dance with Joy Handmade Tile $11.00
How about a tiny, tile sign? That's right, this sign and the others in
in Tile Smile are tiny handmade tiles. I love the beautiful, yet subtle colors of these kiln fired pieces. Many different words and phrases to choose from or have your own custom, one of a kind piece made just for you.  Hurry to get your order in, in time for Christmas gift giving!

I hope you will visit all of these talented vendors on Etsy. Wish I had more time to feature more today. But you can do your own sign search and see what else is available. 


I leave you with this blast from the past...I know, I know but I simply couldn't resist!!! Warning, a couple of the first signs are a bit risque but after that they're just funny!
