I love browsing Pinterest, looking at the pretty pictures can be quite relaxing, and often inspiring, usually as "I really want that, can't afford it, will make something close."....

Elaine's Sign Factory

Once I started turning my bread boards into signs, I find I can't stop.  Since they are actually selling as well, it is a win win this time.  Now I find myself hoping I didn't just jinx this...

this is a child size pastry board $48

this light blue piggy is $38

the dark blue piggy is $32

this dark blue board is $38

well, this one isn't a bread board, just a rusty tin sign for $20
