I snagged a few things, one thing for myself and the rest for Etsy. I've been keeping my eye out for a vintage antique store or book store sign for a long time. It was a little pricey, but I had to have it. I also found a nice set of English black antique transferware from the late 1800s. Continue reading

Flagstone was my original choice, mostly because I'm more familiar with it. I found some stunning examples of flagstone work done in my area. Bluestone is choice that I discovered while searching for ideas. Another option is slate. Continue reading
