~a vintage sign reproduction 2 ways~

I have always loved this vintage sign:


A few years ago I made this one for our front porch, and have since sold it.


I kept going back to that original sign really wanting it again, so over the weekend I made another one.
This time  I used an old window frame and the same raspberry color that are in my pillows.
Yes, I took the flag down.
I love it, but when I brought back the pink pillows it clashed.
The beauty of it is, when I tire of this one, I can switch the pillows out again and put the flag back up!


So which look do you like better, the pink with the lake view sign or the flag with the more neutral pillows?




xoxo

Definitely like the flag best. The sign is great, but I believe it's too small to be up that high.

Definitely the flag, especially for summer and of course the Fourth of July! You could put the other sign outside to welcome guests.

I LOVE THE FLAG WITH THE BLUE BUCKET. IT LOOKS AWESOME FOR SUMMER! I THINK THE OTHER SIGN WOULD LOOK ADORABLE TO WELCOME GUESTS AS THEY ARRIVE AT YOUR FRONT DOOR. YOUR HOUSE IS ALWAYS SO LOVELY, WHATEVER YOU DO IS BEAUTIFUL!

Both are grand, but my choice is the flag and only because we are so close to July 4th! Red, White and Blue is just so perfect for this time of year!
Have a great week~

I'm the one that bought the lake sign from you a few years back. I had it hung on my back patio and still haven't tired of it. We are moving on to a new house in the next few weeks and the sign will definitely be going with me. Love your updated version as well.

Your new sign is great but maybe in a different spot. The Flag looks amazing in the space.

Ok I'm the odd man out on this one. I think your grid of pictures is a little too low and the lampshades covering them just emphasize this. If you moved this grouping up you wouldn't need flag or sign above. You would keep the focus on the grouping and not compete with it. Love both the sign and flag but would put somewhere else.
