Description

This is a quote by John Mellencamp in the song Minutes to Memories. (Entire lyrics at the bottom of this post)

Real Wood
Real Paint
Hand Painted

Background - Black
Letters - Cream
Material - Pine wood
Rough Size -18" x 11 1/4" x 3/4"

The sign looks great hanging on the wall or sitting on a shelf.

Sign comes with saw tooth hanger on the back for hanging.


My rustic signs will intentionally have "flaws". This means cracks, scrapes, chips and the paint will look worn. Some of this will be natural some I may create but I am definitely not hiding the beautiful marks of life.

PERSONALIZE A SIGN. If you see something I've done that you like but it isn't just exactly what you are wanting...Let me know. Maybe you have an idea for a sign and just need someone to make it come to life...Let me know. Maybe you want to change the size, the color, or add a family name...Let me know. I love making what people want, I love knowing that someone is getting exactly what they were looking for. Right now I am making signs I like. Some of them are more traditional some may be a little out there (I'm really trying to keep it under control, I can get pretty far out there and probably not everyone would get it.)

SHIPPING - I ISSUE REFUNDS IF ACTUAL SHIPPING IS LESS THAN ESTIMATED ($2 or more). Estimating shipping costs is very challenging. I have to take into account that it may ship to Maine instead of just across town. The cost of combining shipping is almost always cheaper but nearly impossible to estimate. Etsy does a "with another item" but this doesn't really work for my variety. of items. Some things ship really well together like two or more wall panels, but if you combine a wall panel with a wire tree sculpture ....The tree HAS to go by itself. Up to 3 clay/tin boxes ship well together and there is almost no additional cost but add a fourth and the package then weighs too much to go First Class and the cost will jump a few dollars. Basically, just know that I issue refunds for shipping. If you would rather know before hand just convo me with what you are thinking of purchasing and I will give you an exact quote prior to your purchase, please include your zip code.

John Mellencamp – Minutes To Memories Lyrics

On a Greyhound thirty miles beyond Jamestown
He saw the sun set on the Tennessee line
He looked at the young man who was riding beside him
He said I'm old kind of worn out inside
I worked my whole life in the steel mills of Gary
And my father before me I helped build this land
Now I'm seventy-seven and with God as my witness
I earned every dollar that passed through my hands
My family and friends are the best thing I've known
Through the eye of the needle I'll carry them home

Days turn to minutes
And minutes to memories
Life sweeps away the dreams
That we have planned
You are young and you are the future
So suck it up and tough it out
And be the best you can

The rain hit the old dog in the twilight's last gleaming
He said "son it sounds like rattling old bones"
This highway is long but I know some that are longer
By sunup tomorrow I guess I'll be home
Through the hills of Kentucky 'cross the Ohio river
The old man kept talking 'bout his life and his times
He fell asleep with his head against the window
He said **an honest man's pillow is his peace of mind**
This world offers riches and riches will grow wings
I don't take stock in those uncertain things

Days turn to minutes
And minutes to memories
Life sweeps away the dreams
That we have planned
You are young and you are the future
So suck it up and tough it out
And be the best you can

The old man had a vision but it was hard for me to follow
I do things my way and I pay a high price
When I think back on the old man and the bus ride
Now that I'm older I can see he was right

Another hot one out on highway eleven
This is my life It's what I've chosen to do
There are no free rides, no one said it'd be easy
The old man told me this my son I'm telling it to you

Days turn to minutes
And minutes to memories
Life sweeps away the dreams
That we have planned
You are young and you are the future
So suck it up and tough it out
And be the best you can

I was looking for something Bob Seger, and saw many things I almost bought. So glad I held out for this. It is everything I was looking for and I couldn't be more pleased. Would definitely buy from Bugs House Creations again.

Absolutely LOVED this. It is one of my favorite songs of all time, and the picture doesn't do it justice. And it was delivered in a timely manner. I would definitely by from this seller again!

Shipping policies

We ship using the United States Postal Service mostly but could do something different upon request. Larger items like wooden boxes, will go Parcel Post to save our customers some shipping costs.

SHIPPING PRICES ARE ESTIMATED FROM COAST TO COAST (US). We don't ship outside of the US and please contact us about shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, additional costs will likely apply.

We will refund for shipping if our estimate is more than a couple of dollars more than the actual cost to ship your item(s). Location makes can make a big difference.

Figuring out a price for shipping our items seems to be quite a challenge. Combining shipping can be a good way to save some money but some of our items don't ship well with other items.
For instance, our larger wire trees have to ship by themselves (they can't be touching anything inside the box and are actually screwed to the box). Wine charms can be shipped with about anything but more than two sets (by themselves) puts them over the "First Class" weight and the price jumps quite a bit.

Just remember - we are definitely not trying to make any money on shipping. If you would like an exact quote on shipping particular items to your address please convo us and we would be happy to provide that information.
