Big Horn Signs {review + giveaway}





Love unique, hand made art that looks as if it's been well treasured?  How about items with a little personalized touch to them?  If so, then Big Horn Signs is the place for you!  



Big Horn Signs is an artistic company composed of a husband and wife team who get their inspiration from good ole' Western, USA life.  This dynamic duo, Kim and Jeremy, create an array of innovative products.  Their ingenuity lies within their hand crafted vintage signs, hand painted jewelry and personlized products.
 
 
Not only are their signs inspired but they are also easy on the environment as they paint on reclaimed or re-purposed wood materials such as barn or fence wood and vintage fruit crates. 



Kim and Jeremy's design themes, "stem from early to mid-1900s . . . and are usually old-looking and authentically distressed."





Recently, I got to remove my ugly red cardboard box labeled "Milk Bones" from my kitchen counter and replace it with a personlized treat jar from Big Horn Designs for my 120 pound puppy. 









I was overjoyed to have such a cute jar occupy my counter for all to see.  We've recieved a few, "Tito's jar is really charming!" and even a, "Where did you get that?!" It's pretty obvious that we love our treat jar but I think Tito loves it even more as he knows exactly where to go after he's done his good boy duties!








Kim and Jeremy are oh so kind and wonderful to work with!  Have something specific in mind and don't see it on their site?  No problem!  This team loves nothing more than to assist you with making your vision come to life






So, if you have an idea in mind for a sign, jewelry or personalization - let them know and Kim and Jeremy will be happy to make that vision become reality





And from the bottom of their big and kind hearts, Big Horn Design is giving away a personlized treat jar to one of our lucky readers!
