Hand-lettered wood signs, are all the rage in home décor right now. They can easily add a personal touch to your living space with a meaningful message or special quote. I have several around my house, mostly custom pieces, that I have had made with special intent. I’ve shared many of them with you here on the blog.
Of course, when I stumble upon a new maker that I’ve fallen in love with, I have to share it with you. I recently received a sign from Paige at B&P Custom Wood Signs that was so unique and well made, it has become one of my all-time favorites. Paige specializes in hand-lettered signs on vintage style maps. Adorn with messaging about adventure, journeys and home – these signs give special meaning with a stylish vintage flare.
The sign I received from B&P Custom Wood Signs is imprinted with the popular saying, “ Home is wherever I’m with you”. I have it on my bedroom dresser, styled with some old globes from the thrift store and special décor that make such a sweet little vignette. I just absolutely love how it turned out!

There is something that is so relaxing and grounding about lighting a candle. The calm flicker of the flame, the pleasant scent, the sound of it’s crackle —a candle can transform your surroundings. I’ve made candle lighting an evening ritual. After a busy day at work and running around with the kids, it’s a great way to realign myself for a decent nights sleep and let go of the daily stresses.
I’ve found a great line of candles from MNK Candle, which I’ve completely fell in love with. MNK Candle, owned by Megan Kenney, specializes in small batch artisan soy candles. Megan offers a well-rounded candle line with a wide variety of candle scents from an apothecary candles to a traditional mason jar line. There are scents for those who love sweet and flowery and scents for those who are into deep and savory.
I’ve completely fell in love with one of her seasonal Spring scents, Into the Woods. The scent is hard to describe, but complete heaven. It is a mix of sweet wisteria, earthy red wood forest, moss, sandalwood; rounded out sweet amber creating a scent that is both moody and feminine.
Megan works hard to develop and create unique scent profiles for each season. It’s always fun to see what the next season will bring.
