Handpainted Sign and A Winner!

I do signs commercially for a living. Its kinda like a mechanic that doesn't work on his own car. I don't do a lot of them on my blog or in my store. Funny how that happens.

I thought it would be good to start doing more for Christmas. Signs people might want to hang in their own home. Like my ticket or wish sign.  This one would be all hand done with paint and wax.  I thought this one would look good in a kitchen. I like the idea of one word signs. I think there will be more to come. What do you think?

Hand lettered and distressed
I think I will make more! Lets make this fun.....

What would you like to see? Give me words,colors sayings its your choice and who knows it might be my Giveaway when I reach 500!

The "Kitchen" and "Bath" are popular.
I also see alot of "Homestead" ,"Primitives", "Welcome", "Market"
Black with white lettering or white or cream with black lettering. Just some suggestions!

totally made my day!!!
as for signs, i am a big fan of simple sayings like "eggs" "fresh produce" "apples" and of course "ice cream!"

Jessica @ Sunny Tuesday said...

I think "farm fresh eggs" would be cute! A few others: patisserie, beignet, soap, garden, fresh herbs

You could do Christmas words, too: jolly, jingle, imagine
