A new sign...
I was inspired to create a sign by fellow blogger Donna at http://funkyjunkinteriors.blogspot.com/
her farmers-market-story-and-sign was so creative in 2 ways. The story was touching and the sign was a wonderful memory creation. My story for my sign is 30 years of marriage to the same wonderful man who patiently puts up with my crazy ideals and still loves me even when I ask him to help. This sign commemorates our beginning in 1980. The board that I found looks to be about that old, Mr. T brought it home from a remodeling job that he was working on, I rescued it from the burn pile, thank goodness... it had the wonderful chippy paint that we all love. I used stencils for the name and date, after painting on the letters, I lightly sanded for the aged look on the letters. Following Donna's love of old hardware and such, I added a rusty hinge at one end and an old metal piece at the other end.. I have a wonderful collection of all doorknobs and just so happened this beautiful old black one just fit. Thank you Donna for the wonderful inspiration !!
I love my sign !!
