Look what came in the mail Saturday

Pin It Now!

I bought this at http://www.shabbycottageboutique.com/ a couple months ago. I fell in love with it when I saw it on Flickr. I was a little worried when I didn't hear back from Denise after I bought it. A couple weeks ago she sent me an email saying she had been ill and had computer problems but she would be sending it soon. I was so excited when I saw the mailman walking up with this huge package (it's 3 feet long). This sign was painted by Denise from a board she found that washed up on the beach in Cape Cod, MA. She also included a beautiful vintage piece of jewelry from France which was so sweet of her. I forgot to take a picture of that but I will so I can share it with all of you. It's beautiful!
I put the sign above my bed. It's perfect in my cottage bedroom!

The pictures she took look a lot better than mine. Here they are:

Love it. Love it. Love it. I saw it somewhere (probably where you bought it) and envied you and wished I'd gotten it first, but it fits so beautifully in your room which by the way is straight out of a magazine... So beautiful! And wonderful history to realize it was actually washed up on the beach before being painted!

Its beautiful! I am so glad you showed the full picture of your bedroom, I just adore the bedding and the color of paint on your wall. Its a very pretty and cottagey room for such a sign!

I posted a picture today on my blog of my cottagey or "shabby chic" guest room. I think you would like it, too.

Hi,
That sign is adorable.
I love that she found the piece of wood. I have been painting, signs using old barn wood pieces. I don't have any to show you though. I give them away as gifts.
It's fun.
I will have to check out the website where you bought the sign.
