These playful, salvaged flowers never need water or sunlight and are perfect in window boxes, vases and bouquets.
In addition to their beauty, playfulness, and amazing durability, these flowers demonstrate hope. If we can create happy gardens from trash, we can do anything.
These eco-friendly flowers are cut out of plastic business signs that were taken down and/or replaced. Printed with eco-friendly UV resistant ink they can be enjoyed all year long - indoors or outdoors.
Made possible through partnerships with local plastic and sign companies, these recycled sign flowers are made from materials that would normally end up in landfills. Instead, we create colorful gardens from what others discard.
Their previous use as outdoor plastic signage designed to withstand the elements, they will last for years in window box gardens and planters.
Window box not included.
Flowers measure 3/16" thick & 3" in diameter, and are available in eight colors: deep purple, sunny yellow, lime green, sea aqua, rose red, happy blue, perfect orange, and bubblegum pink. I will hand-pick a colorful assortment for your window box.
Each has a 10-inch wire stem that allows you to twist and position as desired. Sometimes you’ll see elements of the original signage on the back of the blooms.
Your flowers will be wrapped with love and sent using recycled packaging.
Made locally with love. My hands and heart touch everything I make.

These questions sometimes arise...
What unit of measure do you use?
All product measurements are listed in inches.
What is the "small word add-on?"
The small word add-on allows you to add an additional small (6-8") cardboard or plastic word to your order. The small word will be the same as your large word.
How do I hang the salvaged words?
I use the little foam squares from AC Moore or similar craft stores. They fit perfectly behind the words and also add a great dimension. They do not harm paint. In my studio I have some that have been up for years.
I also love to lean the words...over a doorway, a window, or on top of a picture. The dinner table is a favorite place of mine. I use clear squares if I hang the words on a mirror.
Can salvaged words be outside?
The salvaged plexi words can, yes! And they float in water. The last little words are salvaged cardboard and should be kept indoors.
I want a word I do not see on your website. Can you make it for me?
Oh yes. You can order that right here.
I have a phrase I would like made. Can you do that?
Happily. Just email me directly.
When will I receive my order?
Prints will ship out in 1 to 2 business days. Hand-scripted words ship within a week. Custom orders (e.g., Your Word and Your Name) will be processed in 1 - 3 weeks.
Shipping rates and times are based on package weight and destination...you'll be able to view and select the best option for your purchase at checkout.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes...a whole bunch. Please expect delivery to take longer than noted above as packages will be making their way across mountains, sand, or sea.
What about refunds and exchanges?
If an order arrived damaged due to shipping, please contact me.
Where can I see/buy your work in person?
You’ll find my environmentally friendly artwork in healing spaces and private collections across North America and Europe, as well as in galleries and shops in the Northeast United States. Take a peek at my portfolio, browse the shop, join me at an event, and share in my creative process.
