a heart of a warrior…

This is the lat­est addi­tion to our lovely home…

SO, remem­ber when I said how much I like THIS piece from etsy?

you are my sunshine artwork

Well, I decided to do my ver­sion of it on some old barn wood that I stole from my brother-in-law. I knew I needed Nathan’s help on this one, so I asked him if he wanted to do a “together” project. I braced myself for the oh-man-not-another-together-project-look.…but instead he was like “oh cool”.

THEN, before moth­ers day he told me he was actu­ally going to do the project FOR ME as my mother’s day gift. WOW– be jeal­ous you peo­ple who didn’t get to marry Nathan.

So here it is. I chose words from a bless­ing song that is my favorite. Every time I sing this part I think of Ella and my baby boy Lincoln.

I bless you sign

I bless you sign

I love it so much. Don’t believe that he actu­ally took the time to do it him­self?? Proof is in the photo:

cheers!

    Love it!!!

  • Dou­ble heart, triple stampy, no erasey LOVE IT! This is my favorite song to sing over the kids so I love that you have the words on your wall. Well played Nathan. That is tedious work to line every­thing up by hand. He is a human let­ter press! Looks terrific!

    I LOVE this Sarah!! The first thought I had was a friend of mine who just built a house in So. GA. She ‘inscribed’ the dirt with verses before the foun­da­tion was poured as well as on the fram­ing before the sheet rock was put in. I just don’ t have barn wood.…hmm…
