Made a sign today to officially name our house. Of course it had to be from something reclaimed from the yard…ideally something that we were planning to throw away.
I found the perfect worm-eaten dry rotted piece of wood along the back fence. I put a diluted latex whitewash over it, painted a few words with some craft paint, found a few twigs from a tree in the backyard to attach to it, and hung it with some found wire. Insta-sign for free. Hung an old oxidized string of bells near it and now it looks old, quaint, and feels very much like me.
I found another piece of wood with a bit of lichen in it, so I made one for the front garden/pond area as well.
I am home.
