Give Me A Sign

I like signs.
They make me smile, remind me not to take life too seriously, and to care about what really matters.

In the dining room

It's funny, when people ignore a sign that states the obvious, such as "wet paint", "steep road ahead" and "Slippery when wet". ;-)

I like signs myself. I Love the "warning crazy cat" and you hung it in an approriate place. I could sure use that one. The sign over the phone is a good one too. :)

Me too! I like signs. They are very neat and help me get around. LOL! I saw one the other day. It read ~ Does running late count as exercise? I should have gotten it. Hugs

Hi Jo! I needed little bit of a lift this evening and have found it in your blog, as I knew I would--It's a sign! ;-)) I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend!!

Cute! Love signs too and putting them around the place. I have one that says "Happiness" and one that says "Live, Laugh, Love."

Betsy Brock said...

Me, too! And you have some nice ones! Do you blog with Biavenue? She makes signs..and distresses them to look old. If you want to look, she's on my blogroll. :)

Patsy said...

I have seen some good ones too
sometimes they say it all- no need for more word. LOL

Signs are fun. One of my favorites that I brought back from London is the "loo".

I like your signs -- especially the 'Crazy Cat' sign.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

Hi Jo, I like signs also... How 'bout this one:
For Sale: Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.

OR--this one:
Always forgive your enemies - Nothing annoys them so much.

I get enough exercise pushing my luck.

Great signs! My favorite is posted in my doctors office: "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a puppy!"

Love your signs and where you have placed them. The one over your phone is too funny!

We have one that says "American by birth, Southerner by the grace of God."

I love your signs,the one over the phone is great.
I also liked reading through the comments to this post,they made me laugh.
In our little town there is a sign on the public toilet that reads--THE SECOND BEST TOILET IN IRELAND-,this amuses me,the best one must be really good but what standard is no 100,do they have a sign as well.!!
We also have a sign by the canal warning of ducks crossing the road and one saying -please do not steal the duck crossing sign !!
Have a great week Carolyn.

Stella Jones said...

I bet they bring a smile to your face every time you see the signs, don't they Jo.
Do pop across to my Blog today if you have the time. I have just done a post on the ginger cat I'm always going on about when I see yours!
Blessings, Star
