To Market, To Market...

I admit, I got snappy-happy while shooting this sign. My apologies.

I know you're probably getting tired of seeing all these signs, but well, that's what I've been doing lately.

I'm rather in love with the way this one turned out.
I once more felt the longing to hang it on my wall and not take it down.
 I resisted.

Petersburg is an actual city in Virginia.
I have no idea if they have or have ever had a farmers market though.

 I would love to walk down the busy isles of a farmers market today, smell the fresh flowers and see the plump, juicy vegetables. Pumpkins will be out by now and musty smelling mums will light the world with their vibrant colors. A cute linen shopping bag swings carelessly from my hands. I can hear the creaking of the rusty red wagon as my oldest son pulls the other two beside me. Their giggles float into the air and mingle with the smells of fresh baked breads.


Be back later this week...

I LOVE it!!! Did you use transfer paper and a special font or a stencil?

So authentic looking!

This is my favorite! I love Farmer's Markets. You could make one for yourself, you deserve it after all your hard work. Terry

Is there a town in Va that does not have a Farmer's Market? I don't think so!
It looks great! Your talent came from Dad, not me!

Oh I love it! Did you use a transfer? I'd have to keep that one!

Don't ever apologize for those beautiful signs - you do such a great job on them! And . . . how DO you do it all? Isn't there a beautiful little baby in that house of yours??? You are something else!

Great job on all the signs! Your little stories of what you picture about each sign reminds me of the recent radio commercials Classic has been doing! Don't know if that was planned but they're fitting in well! :)
