Unusual signs for Grandma's Garden or Grandma's Greenhouse, engraved in slate and is bound to bring a smile to her face.
This sign will make a great Mothers' Day present for Grandma, or a beautiful Christmas present for children to give to Grandma.
It's also a unique way to celebrate the birth of Grandma's first born grandchild. What a wonderful memento which Grandma and your first born could see and talk about in years to come.
I offer a choice of 'Grandma's Garden' and 'Grandma's Greenhouse' wording, and you can choose regular or script font styles, depending on the style you think would best suit Grandma.
My signs are made in Derbyshire using natural slate or slate I salvage from the villages around my home in Crich..
I cut he slate by hand, treat it with Danish oil then engrave through the finish, leaving the engraved area in its natural state. As it is engraved, the text won't peel. As it is slate, it will be very happy living outside.
Your sign is finished with a galvanised steel rope which won't rust or rot. The steel rope also hangs more easily than a simple solid wire hanger.
Your sign is made from slate. The wire rope hanger is made from galvanised steel.
Each piece of slate is different in texture and may contain small pieces of pyrite (Fool's Gold) which is a naturally occurring mineral in the slate. We only engrave pieces of slate we would be happy to receive ourselves. Being a natural product, no two pieces are the same, making each one truly unique.
The size of your Grandma's Garden slate sign excluding the hanger is usually around 24 - 25cm wide x 10cm deep.
