Know anyone with a wedding or birthday coming up that
you would like to get a really fabulous one of a kind gift
for?  Moondog Cottage is now making customized Giant
Initial Signs from rustic vintage wood!  These signs measure
approximately 28" tall x 22" wide.  We can put whatever
letter you want on them and you can even specify a different
font.  They come with a wire hanger on the back and are 
ready to hang up.  Very Shabby Chic!

We are also offering artwork on the same size and type of wood.  Blackbirds and crows
are always popular, but if you have a specific item you would like, we can work with you.
We can also change the color if you prefer something other than black.

I've always loved crows, so this is one of my favorites.  You can find our items on:    We also have lots of vintage items at
