Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

 

old housekeeping sign

Like many of you, I love vintage signs.  My favorite one that I own is this large one (5 feet long) that my hubby brought to me a few years ago.  Funny story.  He had stopped by an old car dealership building in downtown Waco that someone had purchased to remodel and make into lofts.  Hubby was so interested in the beautiful old building, the new owner gave him a tour.  This sign had been left in the building and hubby noticed it and commented.   The white background paint is almost totally gone.   Well, the owner didn’t care anything about the sign and he just up and GAVE it to him.   Sorry, my Texas slang comes out when I get excited. I love it and I didn’t have to do a thing to it, but hang it up!  I also kinda like the fact that “it’s” is grammatically incorrect and makes it unique (just in case a former English teacher of mine sees this). 

Unfortunately, before the owner could get the remodeling done, the economy went downhill and I believe the building is now again for sale.   I am sure my hubby would love to have that building, but if you see him, please try to talk some sense into him!
