Building Block Signs

With the economy so tight, I wanted to make some things that are affordable for everyone, and that can sit out year 'round.

I've made these little blocks, reminiscent of the ones I played with in my childhood, from 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" pine, and have painted, sanded, and stained them to give them a wonderful aged look.

They are available on my website at http://www.littlesistersdolls.com/. Each group of blocks will come with two sayings.

This one shown says, "OLD TOYS" in a barn red, and "WELCOME" in a dark, drab green.
I will be making more, with sayings like, "FAITH", "AMERICA", "FRIENDS", and who knows what else I'll come up with!

I will take orders for things such as family names, or a phrase or saying that's special to you.

A set of 7 blocks is only $9.99!


Just listed tonight on Ebay, this Americana Set - starting bid at $9.99

Thank ya ma'am! Had all this wood left over from my evergreen trees, and thought they'd be the perfect size.
It's a nice break from sewing all day, and while "parts" are drying, I can be working on these..
