Last week, when Don and I were out and about looking at everything vintage, he saw a sign that he loved. He called me over and I agreed it would be a wonderful addition to our home. But we didn’t see a price and, since old signs tend to be pricey around here, we moved on. I thought about it several times during the course of the week. Turns out Don did, too.
Yesterday I was visiting the same shop and figured it was time to at least ask about the price.
But please use the other stair. If you can find it. The only ‘other stair’ around here is the spooky one that leads down to our outside-entrance-half-basement. If you want to use it, more power to you.
It’s no secret that we love words and fonts and signs. We have signs scattered around the cottage. This one is made out of wood and measures 24 x 18. It’s old, chippy and battered. Just the way I like it. The dark green color perfectly matches the green fabric on our desk chair – a lucky coincidence.
And as Don says, it balances “all the flowers.”
Really? There are too many flowers here? I don’t think so.
But he’s right. Being aware of the weight and balance of a room is important.
Evidence: Christie’s beautiful rose painting on the left, graphically wonderful sign on the right.
And it’s fun. Everyone needs a bit of fun in their home.
