Hanging of the Sign

It’s official! Our Grey Havens sign has been hung on the front porch of our new cottage! We had the sign custom made in Camden, Maine, for our former cottage. When we sold the place last fall, we took the sign with us. Hubby cleaned it up over the winter and put on many new coats of old-fashioned paste wax for protection. After exposure to the elements for almost 18 years, it is still gorgeous and retains the gold leafing.

Before the heat of day completely overwhelmed us, Marty whipped us into action and supervised the sign hanging event.

We soon got it hung without any bodily injuries or utterances of naughty words.

Grey Havens is back!
And Marty is waiting on the porch to greet your arrival!


  1. An absolutely beautiful sign!!!! I'm so very happy for you!!!!

  2. Gold leaf rocks! My husband has carved signs, part of his hobby. He says your is like on a boat... He carved one for our son-i-law once upon a time. :-)

    And he carved a sign for the Riding Farm where a Grand and her mom, ride.
