I think most of us want to personalize our homes with things we love or items that have meaning to us. Personal items can often bring a smile to your face as you remember a special moment tied to that piece. It could be a photograph, an old vase you found while antiquing with girlfriends, or even a bouquet of your favorite flowers. You’ve probably noticed a trend of decorating with signs lately. Signs are a great way to personalize your living spaces and the best part is … they’re relatively inexpensive and they’re easy to make if you choose to go the DIY route.
There are 2 signs in this kitchen. Do you see them both? I love the big Super Market sign, which is totally appropriate for a kitchen. The “fresh” sign hints at the cook’s preference for fresh items to create home cooked meals.
The big Saloon sign makes it quite clear what this space is all about, as does the neon Bar sign. I like the mix of a vintage sign in the same space with a modern sign.
Subway signs have become extremely popular recently. Make one of your own that lists some of your favorite vacation spots to give it a personal touch.

Do you remember S&H Green Stamps? I used to love helping my mother lick and stick them onto the cards, to be turned in later for various items. See what I mean about personalizing a space with signs? This one brought back fond childhood memories for me.

Time to fess up! Have you ever wanted to snag a street sign because it meant something special to you? I know I have! But I’ve never done it because I’m too chicken and didn’t want to suffer the consequences of getting caught.
