White Wednesday

For this "White Wednesday" I took some pictures of something I LOVE, old advertising. The old signs, to me, is a form of folk art. They were all original and most were one of a kinds done for specific businesses. Many of my old signs have that great chippy paint on them. Here are a few of my favorite, and I apologize for the photos. I have a family room with open beam ceilings, and most of my signs are hung up high!




Stop by Stop by and visit Kathleen over on her blog! She has done a great job hosting "White Wednesday". There are also some awesome "White Wednesday" blogs for you to visit as well.
