About this Product

  • This is a personalized location sign with a compass rose in the center.

  • It features your home coordinates or that of a place that is special to you!

  • I make this piece using reclaimed or upcycled wood.

  • I draw the compass artwork and lettering using pyrography tools, also known as wood-burning.

  • Decorating with a longitude-latitude sign is a wonderful memory to hang on your wall.

  • The rectangular shape of this location sign is great for hanging over a door or filling narrow spaces in your home.

  • In addition to the longitude-latitude coordinates, the design can include the city, lake name, a special date, or a family name.

  • Some like to have a special phrase. For example "Where We Began" to commemorate the first date.

  • I'm happy to research the location coordinates for you.

  • Just message me your wishes and I'll create a mock-up on the computer. I'll send you a photo first, to be sure I've got it right.

  • The wood is 36 x 5.25 inches.

Welcome! I love creating uniquely rustic pieces for your home. I work with real dried gourds for your tabletop decorating and reclaimed wood for your wall decor. I am happy to customize when I can so please reach out if you have a creative idea you'd like to work on together. 

Meet the Maker

Hello friends! My name is Christy and l welcome you to my shop :) 

In my handmade shop, I feature unique pieces of home decor that add a little rustic and a little whimsy to your home. 

I began my handmade journey of wood-burning artwork on reclaimed wood. The beautiful brown color in my artwork is created with pyrography, "drawing with fire". It is the perfect complement to the reclaimed wood that I use to create rustic wall hangings. All the artwork is wood-burned by hand, using pyrography tools.

When I discovered the incredibly versatile dried gourds, it was love at first sight! I instantly added them to my creative routine. I've always adored pumpkin carving, and here was a similar natural vegetable that will for many years without the shelf life of a fresh pumpkin. The dried gourd shells are very hard and perfect for carving and pyrography!

I use the gourds to create whimsical fall pumpkin characters with a ton of personality. I also enjoy turning the gourds into decorative bowls, vases, and vessels. Each gourd shape is unique, so each gourd piece is a one-of-a-kind!

How it’s Made

  • I use a 36-inch piece of reclaimed wood, weather wood.

  • I sand the wood slightly but leave any nail heads and cracks as those details add so much character.

  • I wood-burn all the lettering and compass by hand.

  • I add a slight white touch to enhance the wood's weathered look.

  • I attach a sawtooth hanger on the back for you.

  • Drawing with fire, AKA wood-burning or pyrography creates a beautiful burnished brown color. It perfectly complements the distressed look found with a weathered piece of wood!

  • Send me a message with the personalized information you'd like to include.

  • Before I start your order, I'll create a mock-up and send you a picture to be sure it's correct.

  • I'm happy to make any changes until it looks just right.

  • If you have a creative idea, I'll try to accommodate you as best I can.

Commonly Asked Questions

1. Can I order a customized gourd character? Yes! I am happy to work with you on a personalized gourd for you. Just reach out and we can chat about your idea.

2. Can I order the hats separately? Not at this time. I use the coordinating gourd top to make the hat base. So the gourd top/hat fits the gourd exactly. I am contemplating making hats separately. Let me know if this might be a good idea... I'd love your input! 

3. Can I use the gourds to decorate outside? These gourds are dried, but I wouldn't recommend letting them get wet with the weather elements. It's best to keep these as "indoor gourds".

4. Can I name my gourd? Sure! If you would like to name a gourd just let me know. This would fall into a custom piece, so I would just need a week or so to create this gourd for you. 

5. Are there additional charges for custom gourds? This depends on the request. Please just send me a note with your request and I can let you know.
