WHITE WEDNESDAY ~ Signs and Wonders

~SIGNS~





This was my very first antique sign.  I lived on Cherry Apple Circle!




When I walked into an antique shop many years ago and saw this sign...I knew immediately that I had to have it...You see I love antique signs, I love gardening, and my Grandfather's name was Winfield.  I also gave my son Winfield as his middle name in loving memory of my Grandaddy Winfield Scott!




~AND WONDERS~


My folk art 'garden angel'


I think this 'zinc' piece looks like angel wings, don't you think?



This is my favorite picure of my mother.  She passed away in Feburary at the age of 87.  I sure do miss her!

  5. Oh Susie I love the picture of your mother!
    I think that sign with your grandfathers name had to be more than coincidence. What a wonderful thing to have gotten that for your collection.

  12. Susie,
    I love the picture of your mother. It reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Paper Moon. I lost my mother 2 years ago, she was only 61. The pain never goes away. Lisa
