Hi everybody.......and welcome to my store, The Back Porch Shoppe! My "Vintage Inspired, Shabby Cottage" signs are all handcrafted from the finest materials by my husband and me. After I design the signs' shapes and decide on wording and colors, my husband cuts all of the signs out for me, sands them and base coats them too! :) Then each sign is given lots of TLC on my 'back porch'...that's where I got the idea for my store name! We specialize in custom signs for Weddings, Family, Home Decor or Business Signs....any color or any font. You'll get nothing but the BEST here...The Back Porch Shoppe is second to none!

I also LOVE to create things out of wood findings. I've been re-vamping and creating for at least 25 years and sell everything I make at Plantations here in southern Louisiana. I love using vintage findings.....taking things apart and making something totally unique out of the…

I also LOVE to create things out of wood findings. I've been re-vamping and creating for at least 25 years and sell everything I make at Plantations here in southern Louisiana. I love using vintage findings.....taking things apart and making something totally unique out of the bits & pieces...furniture, vintage windows, old hardware, tin, buttons, lace, old bottles....you name it!

I'm also a certified clogging instructor (27 yrs...WHEW) for my clogging club, The Dixie Cloggers of New Orleans. We are the first, largest, and oldest clogging group in Louisiana. We serve the community by performing at schools, fairs, festivals, churches, hospitals, and community events. We've performed in many states, and Disneyworld as well! John clogs too! YAY!

When I have "free" time, (what's that?)....we love to go fishing! There's nothing better than idling down a bayou watching the sunrise peek over the water....fishing all day, and watching the sunset meet the horizon...

Get yourself a cup of coffee or sweet tea & take your time browsing The Back Porch Shoppe...you'll be glad you did! :) Oh...p.s....All items come from a smoke free home. I have a cat, & she doesn't smoke either. :)

xox, Darline
