Regular readers may remember last winter when we reviewed the gorgeous handmade crosses for our pet memorial garden from Cades & Birch. When business owner Lisa contacted us to do another review I did not hesitate to say yes. We still enjoy those crosses every time we look out our window and see them or walk by our garden.

The tough part was figuring out which product to have handmade from Cades & Birch this time! When I waffled between two items, that’s when Lisa kindly offered to also make me a marker for our angel cat Samantha. She preferred I review the personalized wooden Pet Treat Storage box with lock, my other choice, because the personally engraved wood products are their specialty.
They go far beyond simply pet products, with many custom crafted gifts, home décor, and much more. What makes her products so special is that each is handmade and can be completely customized to your liking. While most people might choose to have their pets’ name on this treat box, I wanted to have our farm name so I could use it especially to store my own homemade treats that I don’t sell and save for Luke, and for any future dogs that might join our family.
I also wanted to be able to change the 4 x 6 photo which is easily inserted from the inside of the box, and protected with a piece of acrylic plexiglass. I’d like to vary photos by season, and right now I have this photo of Luke, taken last fall, sitting down by our garden, with our farm and home in the background. I think it’s perfect, and I already know which winter photo I’m going to put in there next. However, you can also have a photo printed on wood for just a little extra money.
You can see also see in the photo above the other stain available for this treat box, light walnut. I chose the grey stain because it fits in better with my household décor, but both are pretty, I think. The wood used is pine. I love the smell of fresh wood, and whenever I open a package from Cades and Birch, that’s the first thing I smell! It just accentuates the fact that this is handmade with natural materials, and the personalization makes it unique and completely your own.
I think their products are priced quite reasonably, and I feel confident that they will pretty much last a lifetime. There is nothing chintzy here, everything is solid and put together well. The lock and key is a cute addition as well!
I encourage you to visit Cades & Birch on Etsy to see all that they have to offer. Lisa has also generously agreed to a giveaway for our readers, so fill out the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win a $50 Etsy gift card for the Cades & Birch shop.
