FOUND :: Old New Again, on Etsy

Okay, if you know me, you probably know that I've lived in Kentucky for twelve years now, a slight majority of my life, but I'm still definitely, totally, and surely a Wisconsin native.  So when I find things from my home state, I get a little bit like that annoying kid saying "pick me! pick me!" every time the teacher asks a question--I stick my nose in the middle of things and say "Hey, I'm from there, too!"
I'm definitely going to be that kid right now and brag on these folks up in my home state who create some pretty fantastic upcycled goods in the hometown of the great and beloved Green Bay Packers.

They have Wisconsin in turquoise wood.

They also have Kentucky in slate.

If you're not looking for state-shaped wall hooks, Old New Again has a number of other wooden shabby chic items for your home, like this welcome sign.

I must agree with the imperative statement on this sign.

Every piece of wood is hand-picked, so even though their prices are a little higher than other sources, their pieces are carefully made with great quality.  Old New Again is "a husband and wife team supporting [their] family with [their] goods," which impresses me even more.  Their shop is gorgeous and you really should take a look.

I absolutely love the read sign. I might hang that right above my tv, just as a nice little reminder to turn it off and go do something else.
