Dear Paula,

I just bought my very first house and am creating a garden filled with lavender. I'm combining Iceberg roses with the lavender and have named my little place Lavender Cottage. I've been looking for a lovely rustic sign to finish things off and was getting pretty despondent until I stumbled upon yours. It's perfect. If I don't win, where might I buy one or is it one of a kind?It's inspiring.

Your cottage sounds lovely! At the top of my blog you'll see links to my etsy shop and my website ~ I beleive this sign is available in either of those shops.
