Show Me A Sign

Yesterday was the quarterly Statler Siblings meeting. We met in my home this time. I'm seated in the middle of the table wearing a peach colored top. (close to the cake!) Yum. The cake was in celebration of the latest Creative Studio update of 2.0. I've got some new learning to do and oh my gosh the new features are awesome.
Something that they all liked about my home was my signs. I must admit I have a few and love them. I completely forgot my railroad one and will have to post that another time. The one below is above our bed.
Well, obviously we know where this one goes.

This was an actual foot path sign from the countryside in England.

Love this one. It hangs in my living room area.



Seems appropriate that this one be called, The Gathering Room as we all stand in the kitchen!



Then my newest addition just came this weekend! I love it! Initially I was going to put it outside above my front door but I have the perfect spot in my entry way that is seen easily from the front door. "Quilt Hollow"....as Karen calls it her little hidey hole. My home truly feels like a quilting hollow.

I'm taking off early Tuesday am to visit mom in CA for a couple of weeks. My laptop will be with me so I will be keeping an eye out for your post.

I love signs too, I have a few of them, I just bought the Gathering Room one myself on Saturday, how funny! I plan to put mine in the family room at the new house we're buying. Where do you get your signs? Do you get them online?

These are so completely cool and I'm wondering why I've not noticed them before? I think I'm just so focused on grabbing my coffee and putting my feet up for comfort and relaxation in my Hidey Hole that I haven't been paying attention.

Hope the goodwill bags are moved so I can move the ground cover and still get into my hidey hole while you're gone...

Wendy said...

Oh Mary your signs are awesome, I love them all. Sadly I only have one in my kitchen that says "Eggs" on a old piece of wood. It goes with the rooster theme in there.
Have a good trip!

Mary,

It is fun seeing a picture of you, I must of put you with a different picture post awhile ago because I imagined you different. Fun to see what you look like. The signs are so cool, I wish I had some in my house. If I did, I would have "I kiss better than I cook," in the kitchen and "Fabric cost less than therapy," in my quilt studio-bedroom.

It was fun to see more of your home. Have a safe trip and enjoy the time with your mom. Happy Monday ~Natalie

Kaaren said...

I have many of the same signs as you scattered throughout our house. Of course I love them all!

Michelle said...

Seems we all love signs, Mary! I have them, too! My question is how you came by the footpath sign from England - legally, I hope - LOL!
