Gone Swimming…

826 004

Love, love this sign. Found it at the Good Junk sale last weekend and of course it was from LeAnntiques. Totally evokes memories of summer birthday parties with my brother and friends at our cabin. The colors are dreamy. Now to find the ideal spot for it. Tried it over the bathroom window and a bedroom door…have a feeling it will end up in the stairwell. Stay tuned.

Is that a stencil where the stencil itself was painted and framed? Nice.

I love your summer sign! And the paintings are so pretty. Thanks for sharing her blog. I love the one with the vivid red flower.

Cute sign! I'd probably put it in my son's room, as in "swimming in a mess of junk".

Very cute sign.
I love everything about that photo, btw. The paneled door, hardwood floors, beautiful old dresser. Perfection. ;)
