~ It's a Sign.....


...Actually,
it's OUR new sign!

at the front of the driveway, 
right next to the road for all to see...


we finally have begun to spruce up the front entrance 
to our beloved farm 
with new fencing and signage ~

 
Peter & Chris have been working on this sign for weeks.
~ with Peter milling all of our home-grown cedar, poplar & oak, 
then cutting into the shape of a thread spool and carving those AWESOME NEEDLES!
...then handing it over to Chris to paint.
the red/brown, black & gold paint really makes it look historical :)
perfecto!


it look fabulous next to the new red cedar split rail fencing....
really make a huge difference :)
 

we have more to do yet, 
like planting boxwoods and bulbs, 
and adding some low rock walls and such....
~ plus some more solar lighting to accent the area.
 

it is a massive sign!
 here's Peter standing next to it...
 
sorry the photo is dark, but you can see that it's a big-un!

 Thanks to my sweet Hubby 
AND to our right hand man Chris 
... for all the time spent and hard work done...
it surely paid off!

Blessings from the Farm

Love the sign... the lads did a great job.
Lori have you ever thought of doing an online class for a specific project? For those of us so far away it might be fun. Like that heart shaped token you made a while back that I'm obsessed with! Ha!
