A wonderful reading sign that says it all! It would make the perfect gift for so many friends or for yourself!

I just love this reading sign! It is wonderfully timeless. PLEASE BE QUIET I AM READING THE PAPER would make the perfect gift for so many people.

Just a lovely little message to remind everyone! Whether you like reading, The TImes to Grazia to Country Life!

All my signs are handpainted in a vintage cream with a distressed finish making each one weathered and unique.

Choose from one of our popular themed sayings or let your imagination go wild and create your own PERSONALISED SIGN

Each has been carefully crafted to capture the imagination and resonate with humour, sentiment and affection. I have such fun making them!

These beautiful signs have been featured in Country Living Magazine and look stunning hung from their hessian twine from door handles and bed-knobs or just resting on a window shelf.

You may either choose from the original VIntage Cream, or you could choose one of the new gorgeous shades, French Grey, Pebble, Pink or Blue

If you would like to personalise it with your friends name, just choose the saying you would like and pop the name if the personalise box. Or perhaps the name of the fab magazine or book isnt on the drop down menu - then you could put your own message in the box.


Dimensons are approximately 21cm x 10 cm. As each is hand made on wood, sizes may differ slightly.

As each is handmade, sometimes they have knots, or slight indentations on them making each one very different.

    It wasn't made clear what the personalisation would be. I wanted it to say grandpa, but the box that came up appeared to ask for the name of the recipient rather than how the final product would read. I assumed the company would therefore contact me for the personalisation but that was not the case. I wasn't overly impressed with the final wording however the quality was lovely

    Abigail Bryans Designs's response:

    I am so sorry it wasn't clear. If you would like to send it back and for me to redo it for you - I am very happy to do that, please contact me via your order enquiry.

    Delivered quickly. They are gift wrapped so I haven't actually seen them as I bought them as gifts! But from previous purchases I am sure they are great!
