A Rainy Day in Sundre and Area

I live just outside of the small Alberta town of Sundre.  I moved here with my family when I was 11.  I am crazy about this town!  I love to travel but I am always happy to come back to my hometown.


Sundre is surrounded by several smaller communities, some with a general store, some with a community center, some with both.   Bergen and Bearberry are two of those communities.  The former is southwest of Sundre and the latter is northwest.


I am a fan of the vintage and gently worn style of decorating.  I made these signs for sale in our store to look like they were salvaged from someone’s old stash of shabby treasures.  I make them out of 1×4 hemlock, sanded, painted, stenciled and sanded again.  I finish off with a rubbed on coat of stain and then wax.


I planned to photograph them outside today but the rain is steadily coming down.  I hope everyone in this area is staying warm and dry!

    Jodi wished to order one with James River on it. How much? 🙂 (Seriously)

      To do a custom word I would add $5 to the price because I have to cut a stencil. So that would bring the price to $18.99 (plus GST). A custom colour would add to the price as well. I only do the rustic look right now. They are in the General Store if you want to take a look in person. Thanks for asking and let me if you want to go ahead.
