Doug and I have worked very hard all of our lives, working with our hands and creating something from just an idea …
So many projects! Doug’s amazing masonry and photography, my garden designs, collaborating together renovating homes, making barn doors out of re purposed wood…well, the list goes on and on. But all the while we have had a blast!
So I appreciate those who are also working hard and following their dreams. I want to share with you some of my very Favorite small business owners , one each month.
For the month of January, I’m so excited to introduce Far Away Hood.
Owned and operated by a mother daughter team Noelle and Kelly Rideout, they work in their barn in Fallbrook California creating signs out of laser cut metal that really pushes my Industrial Farm buttons. They are really amazing! You may recognize their signs from local stores that carry their products.
I was lucky enough to have met Kelly before Christmas and feel blessed to now call her my friend. I have since frequented her barn collaborating and creating what I call Memories on a Board, for my own family.
One of the reasons I love “Far Away Hood” is how You can personalize your own signs.
Although I live local to Kelly and Noelle, you can actually place an order from anywhere in the world. They will work with you to get the look you want to make your sign just right for you!
For Christmas, I had signs made for both of my daughter in laws with their Wedding, Est. Dates…
They both love them!
Doug and I are also having one made for us for Valentines….
Oh, good idea everyone!!
Do you have a favorite quote or Bible verse? Make it in to a sign. You can custom order it with your own font and size.
This sign is just sheet metal to be hung without wood backing for a more modern look. Have it mounted to distressed wood and you have a more industrial Farmhouse look.
This bible verse is a perfect for an entry way. What a great wedding gift!
This quote was one of my Mothers favorite sayings whenever we would leave the house.

I had Kelly make 5 of these for my family at Christmas…It was a real hit and so meaningful,
Kelly and Noelle also offer what they call “Wine and a Sign” parties where you invite your girlfriends and make your own personalized signs right at the Barn in Fallbrook.
You design your signs and Kelly and Noelle will asemble them right on site.
How fun is that!! I’m planning my own party for the Spring.
They provide the metal lettering as well as the wood and embellishments.
The wood is ready for you to choose, already cut and painted in their own custom designer colors.
You’re making Your Memories on a Sign in this cool workshop Noelle and Kelly have set up!
Having a Wedding or maybe a Baby? Perfect place to start making a sign for Your Wonderful up coming event!!
You create your sign and leave with it fully assembled by Kelly and Noelle on Site!
