Wall Candy

If you were to walk around my house at this moment (as multiple strangers have done recently, potential renters) you’d see it covered in boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper. And in the midst of preparing to PCS, we got this special delivery:

Me and My SoldierMan Home is Where the Army Sends Us Sign Born on Bonn

Disclaimer: This product was “purchased” with a gift certificate I received from Erika at The Midwest Press. I was not compensated for the opinions expressed in this review.

Born on Bonn is an etsy shop that specializes in “Home is where they send us” signs. I’ve been wanting one for years, of course. I just couldn’t find the one that was quite right for us. When I saw Teresa’s signs, I instantly loved them!

Now that I’ve seen ours in person, I can see my choice was the right one.The signs are quality wood and you can easily see they will last for years. Also, the hooks feel very sturdy, and make me really look forward to adding our next duty station next year (each additional station plaque is only $8!)

Teresa was so great to work with and SUPER fast! I requested a custom design for the head board and she was happy to accommodate. The plaques are also customizable, such as adding pink baby booties for the birth of a child, or a rank insignia to mark a promotion, but I kept mine simple. I may add those later as they are available as a separate purchase from her shop, but I haven’t decided yet.

I am LOVING our signs. I will say, because I am bad about visualizing dimensions, the plaques were a little smaller than I expected. BUT Teresa has the dimensions all listed on her shop, so that shouldn’t be an issue for anyone else. Otherwise, I have zero complaints. A gorgeous product and excellent customer service.

Check out Born on Bonn on etsy for more styles and accessory options!


  1. Love it! I bought ours off of etsy too. :)

  2. Would definitely get this if we were active duty... :) I've always loved these, but this one is truly unique!

  3. I love this one! I've never seen a version like this! I really want to get one for our family!
