I Saw The Sign...

...and it opened up my eyes. I saw the sign.

And oh, what a sign it is!

As luck would have it, this old sign was still hanging in a Chagrin Falls antique shop that I strolled through a couple weeks ago. I was on the loose that day, so to speak. Free from squealing girls in tow, free from responsibilities other than to myself, and free to do as I pleased for three entire hours! That is when I saw it.

I had to leave it behind that day though, to mull over the purchase, knowing full well how these sort of things go.

Here today...gone tomorrow.

I was worried. But that's the risk you take (and appeal) of shopping vintage and antique stores. I was willing to take that risk as I peered over my shoulder at it before leaving the shop.

Fast forward a few weeks later and you see that it is now on my front doorstep! Ready to be hung in just the right spot in my home. Measuring 2' x 3', I'll figure that part out.

But this time, however, I get to mull over the decision with no additional worries.

Black and white
with numbers and letters.
Chippy and old.
What could be better?

Take care and have a great day! Please stop back and join me in taking junk to another level!


  1. Love this! Can't wait to see it in your house! You will show us, won't you?

  2. I love it! I will keep stopping by as I love to see what you come up with next.

  3. Oh~ MY~ Gosh! THAT is FABULOUS!
    I used to do Wonderful World of Ohio Mart at Stan Hywet! Even though it wasn't that far from home ( Ashtabula at the time) I always stayed in Chagin Falls so I could go shopping when I was done setting up for the show! Sure miss that!

  4. No kidding! That is a sign my mom and/or I would love!!

  5. nothing could be better! so glad it patiently waited for your return!

  6. Good Job! I like it :)
