First of all, I hope everyone's Christmas and New Year's were safe, loving, healthy and wonderful, filled with family, friends, good food, and great gifts! (I admit it...I love the "getting" almost as much as the "giving"!)
I've been off from work since two days before Christmas and it's been wonderful. I do so enjoy being a domestic goddess. Anyway, today I went out into my cottage to mentally sort through things...lo and behold, four hours later, I had created four Back of the Barn Signs! (how do you like the name I chose for my sign-making venture?)
|This is a close-up of how much I distressed the signs. It's my favorite part...I actually put them down in the gravel, step on them, and go to town with the distressing!|
|Good advice...I gave two of these signs to teachers at school; they now hang in their classrooms!|
|I decided that I'm going to go a little easier on the distressing of signs with a "spiritual" message (I think).|
Oh yeah...I LOVE this gift! Bob gave me this wonderful little "wood-stove" heater for my cottage. It's actually electric, but I pretend it's real. Talk about cozy.
Back of the Barn Signs. I chose it because each of my signs is made to look as if you found it lying underneath the hay, next to the old tractor, way in the "back of the barn". When (please note I said "when", not "if"; I'm working on being more positive) I display the signs for sale, that'll be my name. We shall see, we shall see.
Ok gals. Off to shower and hopefully, truck shopping tomorrow. I'm in the market for a "new" vehicle and am hoping for a Ford Explorer. Wish me luck. Stay well and warm!
