Definitely one of the biggest perks of blogging is getting to know more about and working with other companies. I had heard of Uncommon Goods before and had seen a few of their products through other bloggers, so I excited when they contacted me about doing a review of their products. Uncommon Goods was founded in 1999 and works to offer unique, hand crafted products. Like most things I was incredibly indecisive and spent a LONG time on their site, searching through their stuff. This personalized wall clock and this wall caddy were on my list! I'm pretty sure I narrowed it down to about six things from their home decor products (check them out here!) that sat in my cart for a few days, until I decided on these two.
I am so happy with my choices! I can't tell you how many nail holes are behind these two frames (eight!) because of how many times I've changed out what was up there. But I think these are there to stay. Although I'm tempted to moved the bottom one into new baby's room, so maybe that one will just stay for a few more months. We'll see!
My favorite thing about these products in that each one comes with a little story about the artist who makes them. Both of these frames were made by Margaret Taylor.
The wooden frame came with a not inside of it that said:
It was a barn for the square dance on Saturday night
It was the front porch to rock on
It was the trim that said the hard work paid off . . .
The only thing worse than tearing down an old building is not re-using the
wood that created its beauty.
Isn't that neat? Both pieces are much sturdier and better quality then I expected. The frame had this written inside of it and I just love it! The blue matches our living room perfectly.
And I LOVE the button magnets on the bottom one. This print in from my best friends Liz's etsy shop. I love that it'll be easy to change out, as I have a few of her prints I'll probably want to rotate!
Check out more of their unique products here! You will love them!
Thank you Uncommon Goods for my new pieces. I love them!!
