Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

random signs...


I'm always drawn to signs...some old with chippy paint, some new and colorful. When I see one that particularly catches my eye, either because of the words it shares or the beautiful hand lettering, sometimes they make their way home with me...

like this one hanging in a wonderful store stuffed with antique/vintage/primitive/retro goodies (I'd been looking at it for weeks!) And so it became a little birthday treat from me, to me.
Hand-lettered, what talent! 






And this sign that hangs by the back door everyone comes through. While it was found in the Christmas section of a country store, to me, it says much more. Why yes, this house does believe in Santa (!), but also in old-fashioned values, traditions, going to church together, family prayers, and simple pleasures.



Hand-lettered on slate and sitting in a corner of our mudroom, I'm reminded to visit the year 'round indoor farmers' market off the town square, the summertime farmers' market, the produce auction, and the individual veggie stands that pop up along the country roads.




A sign pointing me toward the Farmers' Market each Saturday morning...get their early for the best choices and take time to enjoy visiting with neighbors, too!



Last, but not least, one you've seen recently...





Just sharing a few of my favorites...and linking up here, at Friday Five.



and by the way!

    1. Yep...it's the "small and simple things" as Laura Ingalls-Wilder said, that count the most!

    1. Thanks for visiting...I'm always amazed at the talented handlettering and jealous, too! I visited your blog too, what a story (love your philosophy!) I go to church with a gal who did just the opposite of you, started in NZ and ended up in the Midwest!
