Signs, Signs, Everywhere there is Signs

What a beautiful fall like day it is here deep in the south.     Just came inside from carving a pumpkin with my son and his sweet girlfriend.     Gotta love fall and all the fun activities associated with it!

That white bag looks like a little ghost, doesn’t it?

I was taking a quick look at my blog favorites and saw where Funky Junk Interiors was having a sign party so I thought I would join in.     In fact, she has several parties going on there so check it out….there is something for everyone to enjoy.  

I don’t have any cute signs to show that I created myself.     I failed miserably at the one I tried to make so I will show a few that I have out in my house.

This cute little sign is in my kitchen.     I bought it at Pier One a couple of years ago.     My scarecrow wanted to be in the picture also.     How could I say no to that precious little face?

This sign is hung above my sunporch door which leads out to my garden.     I found it at either Hobby Lobby or Michaels a couple of years ago.

I may be stretching this “sign” here a bit, but this birdhouse is a replica of the red barns that dotted the south and advertised Rock City which is located in Chattanooga, TN.     A painter was hired by Rock City to travel the nation’s highways and paint barns red in exchange for letting him paint three words on the roof:  See Rock City.     Clever marketing ploy.

This last sign has sentimental value to us.    It came from my husband’s grandmother’s country store in Pike County, Mississippi.    We also have some old thermometers from her store.

That’s it for me today.      I hope you enjoyed viewing my signs.

Happy Halloween,

Marlee

Your old Pepsi sign is wonderful and a big plus when it comes complete with sentimental value. Love the Rock City story/birdhouse too! :)
