White Wednesday

Another "White Wednesday" as Fall is lingering just around the corner. This week I'm joining Kathleen for another "White Wednesday" post. I decided I would share some of my advertising pieces I have in my home. I LOVE vintage advertising, it reminds me a lot of the old folk art pieces. Many of my advertising signs are one of a kinds, simply created often by hand for one particular business. Here are a few of my old advertising signs that I'm pretty fond of!








I fill my home with not only the family I love, but with the things I love that make me happy. I enjoy "White Wednesdays" because the simplicity of the color white seems to touch us all. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "To be simple is to be great"! Happy WW!

it is amazing, you have a great history museum right in your own home.
It is so sad that nowadays the ads change with every season it seems.
Nothing stays simple anymore it all has to be glitz and glam or its torn down.
You are preserving such an important piece of American history.
