I SAW THE SIGN . . . .and it opened up my eyes!

A recent post by Dixie & Linda of Funky Junk Sisters regarding vintage signs reminded me of my "issue" with signs.  "Hello, my name is Debi . . . and I'm addicted to signs!"  Is there a 12-step program devoted to this alarming addiction??

In this post, I will show you many wonderful signs I have for sale that will make their way to Farm Chicks, Funky Junk Sisters, Expo and Barn House! Help me, I've fallen for signs; and I can't get up!!!!

My own kitchen is nearly wall-to-wall with cool, vintage signs that provide a one-of-a-kind experience.  I'm not particularly interested in everyday "art" but prefer the surprises in the kitchen (later post)!   

I grew up in Walla Walla, Washington, having worked on nearly every type of produce farm that existed in the area.  As a child, I hated the work back then; but time and memory loss (no doubt) have contributed a feeling of sentimentality and longing for the simpler times of my youth . . . reflected in this "farm art." 

I love it, don't you!?

Speaking honestly, though, working on farms in my younger day left me with a strong work ethic, enduring physical strength, and a sincere appreciation for natural beauty . . .

eventually leading me to the tough but intensely rewarding path I'm on today!
