New Signs in the Shop!

There are some new signs in my Etsy shop! The laundry sign and the toilette sign I have been meaning to do since I did my first sign. They were both ideas that came from my sister but it took me a little time to find the right wood for them. And now I have.

I have always loved old laundry signs.

I have a toilette sign that I bought years ago. I have always loved it and have it above my door outside the bathroom. This is my version.

As somebody who doesn’t let go of things soon enough I try to stay inspired by the famous Joseph Campbell quote: “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” I wholeheartedly believe it but it still a scary thing to let go of safety to follow what you love. So I made a sign. I think I am going to have to make one for myself, too. My husband was playing with his router so this one got some great edging.

Words to live by.

I have always loved farm animal things. Years ago I collected everything cow but had to stop when it got a bit out of control and everyone was giving me cow themed presents. Looking around my kitchen I realized that somewhere along the way I started to collect chicken and rooster things, too. I have a huge framed rooster print as well as a fake chicken that looks real. As I mentioned, we now have 3 chickens in our backyard. They are such funny, delightful creatures. So you can see where these signs came from. As soon as I get some more wood I  want to do a pig and a sheep, too. I think they make great additions to a kitchen, don’t you?
