While exploring through the deserts in west Texas several years ago, I came across this lovely gem. It had obvioulsy been out there a long time within the elements judging by state of the bones. I brought the skull home and cleaned it up as best as I could. I kept going back to it, exploring all the beautiful layers of bone that were exposed. Just a source of immeasurable wonder! I added a preserved floral crown using various Roses, Peony, Sola, Silver Brunia, Dusty Miller, Privet Berries, Felci Fern, and Tear Drop Eucalyptus. The color palette is a deep Raspberry, Cappuccino, Ivory, Antique Pink, Olive Green, Silver Blue, and Navy Blue. Measurements: 13w x 11d x 13 h Please read my shop policies before purchasing.

As I was walking through our first-time home with our home inspector, he asked me if I’d ever owned a home before. I told him that this would be our first. He laughed uneasily and said, “Well this will be quite the first!” We were 26 years old and full of naive energy. Our first home was a 100-year-old Victorian that had been badly renovated by some over-ambitious DIYers before us. It had wall-to-wall soiled mauve carpet on all three levels, but in my mind’s eye I could envision the heart-pine floors buried underneath! I was smitten with the millwork, chunky moldings, and gorgeous staircase, and looked past the sagging ceiling and aging roof. I knew I could make this house a home! Admittedly, our home inspector’s comment rattled my confidence a tad, but I figured we would somehow figure it all out as we went along. Here are 5 essential tips for new homeowners that I really wish I had known back then:

A beautiful hand painted solid wood sign: Bless the food before us, the family beside us, and the love between us – Amen…a sweet prayer to have on your kitchen or dining room wall. Dimensions: The sign shown is in a vertical layout measuring 10.5x 22. This sign is also available in a landscape layout measuring 14 x 23.5 www.etsy.com/listing/183719443/bless-the-food-before-us-large-hand? Background Color: Shown in Vintage White with dark walnut wood lettering. Also available in Robin Egg Blue. Please select your background coloring option when adding to cart. All of our signs are crafted from 100% solid white wood pine (3/4” thick). Each wood plank is hand-selected for its unique grain, knots, and “natural imperfections” which add to the beauty, charm, and character of each piece. After receiving an undercoat of a dark walnut stain, each sign is carefully hand painted with a high-quality eco-friendly paint – there is no vinyl on our signs. Each sign is also skillfully distressed by hand to give it that aged, shabby chic personality. A specialty wax finish is applied to pull out the rich vintage coloring, achieve a subtle velvety luster, and provide protection and durability. This sturdy sign comes complete with a saw tooth hanger on back for easy mounting and will hang flush against your wall.
