Red and White enamel sign


Thank you Ash Tree Cottage for your wonderful giveway !
I won Susan's blog giveway and I was able to select a sign from Ramsign
and this red and white enamel sign is what, after much deliberation,
I selected...

Thank you Bentley (above) and Susan...
Valentine's Day is wonderful, but I would be remiss, if in February...

I did not honor President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday!

It is especially important to my family as it is also my Dad’s Birthday.
Dad’s been gone from us for many years, miss him so.

Check out near my phone, the corner of a photo of Doyle
I had taken when he was young..
the red and white sign will be so perfect for my house as I love RED!

Red and white anything in fact!

longing for the warm summer flag days at the Homestead

and my new sign,
that I think I will hang on the granite pillar
attached to the red gate!
Don't you think it will be perfect?
Linking to Rednesday at It's a Very Cherry World, White Wednesday at Faded Charm, Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground, and Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage.
take a look, thanks...

That sign is terrific, and congrats on winning it! Love that summertime shot of the red chair the most today, because we've gotten 18" of snow so far, and I'm pretty sure that Spring is still a long ways away!
Happy REDnesday!
