It's a Good Sign

Popular and poignant sayings find new life through a surprising medium: found vintage book pages, calendars and maps.

Comes in a metal frame with ribbon for hanging. Frames made in India, prints made in California. Sold separately.

Kim Smith's collages are meant to be intimate, thought provoking, peaceful and just plain fun. Creating art is a form of relaxation for Smith, and she wants her pieces to inspire others.

Born in Seattle, Washington, Smith spent 10 years of her childhood in Germany. She has degrees in design, economics and an MBA. She studied art through friends, her own observations and exploring her own creativity.

Her travel experiences in Europe caused her to be inspired by the Dada, Bauhaus, and Wiener Werkstatte movements, as well as Russian Constructivism. Smith enjoys working with old material from everyday life and putting it to new use.

Tiny and poor quality

2

Just an average print that is very tiny. I'm sure the original is amazing, but the giclee print didn't capture the uniquness or vibrance that I was expecting.

nice touch but tiny

Very nice but very tiny. I would recommend buying two as one would get lost on a wall.

Different, feel good, cute frames

4

Used 3 of the frames together to create a nice wall display. The frames are a little on the small side, so if you are looking to add to a bare wall, order multiple frames. The ribbons also make a nice touch.

Love it!

I hang them in my office and get a lot of comments. The only down side is that I wish they were bigger.

Just lovely!

Just perfect - finding something for the person who "has it all" is always a stretch and this just fit the bill! Thanks!

Odd

The product was for someone to hang in an office. There are words in the background in German with no explanation of what they meant. [...] This would have been useful information when choosing to buy it. I may not have purchased it. Visually, it was a little busy with the circles over the words.

affordable gift

I bought this as a gift and it is darling. The quality is nice, it is affordable, and the receiver of the gift loves it. It isn't an off the shelf gift, and gives the impression that there is meaning and care behind it.

Signs for encouragement

I thought that the Embrace the Simple Things decoration was very pretty and cute. The colors are very saturated and the ribbon is a light cream color which matches perfectly in most settings. It was a bit smaller than I had imagined but looks lovely on my office wall.
