About Honeysuckle and Pine

How do you decorate? 

Maybe, “Do you decorate?” is a better question. Your life is busy. Maybe you have kids. Or a job. Or (gasp) both! Your home, in no way, looks like a spread from Martha Stewart Magazine. 

The truth is that my house is usually a total wreck. I can’t seem to keep up with the laundry, and I certainly don’t dust regularly. Because let’s face it, who really has time to clean like our mothers did? And does anyone really have the money to curate a collection of well-chosen pieces of traditional home decor?

I certainly don’t.

I do, however, love my house. In fact, I’d rather be home than anywhere else in the world. 

After a super-stressful day at work, I am always happy to get the mail, unlock the door, and walk into my kitchen.

It’s not because it’s really clean. Or because it’s large, swoon-worthy, and stylish. (It’s just a 2-bedroom cape cod with budget updates, after all.)

It is, however, because I have made my home my own. 

I’ve surrounded myself with casual, handmade pieces that I love. A deer print made by someone on Etsy. A farmhouse table I constructed myself. A vintage typewriter desk that holds old milk bottles. A Honeysuckle & Pine “It’s So Nice To Be Home Sign.” These are the things I love. (And you can’t buy them at Hobby Lobby.) 

You see, your home decor doesn’t have to be professionally styled like the gorgeous photos you see on Instagram. It just needs to be you

My goal at Honeysuckle and Pine is to help you find those pieces of home decor that make you happy to be home, too. 

Maybe it’s a simple welcome home sign.  Or something funny for your bathroom. Perhaps you find a wine or book-themed sign that perfectly suits your personality. 

Whatever it is that strikes your fancy (yeah, I just said that), you can be sure that it’s a quality-made piece that no one in your neighborhood already has. 

So go ahead and give yourself permission to make your house a home. And happy decorating, my friends! 


H&P Values


Honeysuckle and Pine features simple designs on neutral backgrounds. Your home should feel elegant, not overcrowded. 


Honeysuckle and Pine creates signs that you won’t find  elsewhere. All designs are original and made to perfectly suit your personality. 


Honeysuckle and Pine signs are cut, sanded, stained, painted, and finished with care so you will be able to enjoy it for years to come. 

About the Signs


  • Honeysuckle and Pine uses 1/2-inch thick birch plywood to make your sign.
  • Birch plywood is stronger and more durable than the pine wood most sign makers use.
  • While pine wood easily dents and scratches, a birch plywood sign will withstand a great amount of wear and tear.
  • Birch plywood is sturdy enough to feel solid but is lightweight enough to easily hang on your walls.


Your sign is cut, sanded, and stained.

A specially-made stencil is created for your sign.

Your design is painted on the wood. 

Finish is applied for durability and beauty.

  • Each Honeysuckle and Pine sign is sealed with two-coats of water-based finish for easy care and durability.
  • The matte/satin finish on the sign will eliminate most glare, but will appear smooth to the touch.
  • Because it is sealed, you will be able to clean and dust your sign with a clean, dry rag.
  • Be sure to keep your sign indoors. It is not made for outdoor use. 


who is this Elissa Person?

Hello! I’m Elissa.

I began woodworking in 2014 in order to build furniture for my own house. The whole thing kind of spiraled out of control, and now I own and operate Honeysuckle and Pine.  

I’m married to the best man in the world, who sometimes helps me sand the birch plywood I speak so highly of in the paragraphs above. He also puts together my power tools and carries heavy things for me at craft shows…because I’m a feminist, damn it. 

We don’t have any kids, and I’m allergic to pets, so I like to keep myself busy with this business as well as my blog for handmade sellers,  elissacarden.com. (Otherwise it would be a full-on depression fest on my couch, watching season after season of Heartland on Netflix.)

In my spare time, I teach high school special education and English.

That’s a joke. Teaching is my full-time job, and it is just as rewarding as you might imagine. 

I’d love to get to know you, so sign up for my email list below, and we’ll connect.
