The Nesting Place, a very sassy design blog, is hosting a contest. I love blog contests!!! Most bloggers just challenge readers to leave a comment in an effort to capture a fun give-away. Some even let a random generator choose the winner. The Nester makes her flock earn the prize. I respect that.
The challenge: post about these cutesy signs from Danielson Designs Studio.
For several years now, I've been an antiquer. One of the things I especially love to discover is an old, clever sign.
I always look for something that showcases a name, word, place or phrase symbolic to my life or family. I think abstract is always best, for example, a weathered, beat up grocery store sign from a store named Mr. Dubs' Grocery. Why, I'd buy that in an instant!
I love old signs.
Or, signs that just look old....
Replace "Santa Catalina Island" with the name of your beach town!
You can search the world over and never find a sign that speaks to you. The good news is, thanks to Danielson Designs - by way of The Nesting Place - you can create your very own!
While there are tons of whimsical, spiritual signs from which to choose....
it is especially fun to create a sign that is custom to your life and home. You can do it (as I have done to nearly all the signs shown here) on the company's website and see exactly what it will like before you committ to buy.
In the dream I dream where The Nester chooses me as the winner, I pick a very rustic looking sign, and have the phrase "Real Sweet Life" printed on it (it's something Mr. W and I say alot when A/we're relaxed and grateful....usually propped up on a beach somewhere or B/we're watching Chloe roll around the floor demanding a belly rub...as in, She lives a real sweet life).
So, pick me, Nester!
