I first got a virus on my laptop. I tried and tried to get rid of it. I know many of you would probably hire a professional. Hiring a professional would cost money and lead to a good deal of crap from my husband about blogging ruining our computer. I think I may have mentioned that he thinks that blogging is a huge waste of time.
Anyway, the laptop is from 2009, an old one of my daughter's. She took the newest one to college. I did splurge last year and buy myself an ipad but otherwise I have outdated hardware.
I am proud of the fact that after my old laptop crashed, I was able to re-install the operating system and get the computer up and running again, even though I hate all this technology.
What do I like about blogging? The creating and the decorating. I have a higher end point and shoot Canon but I know my indoor photography is still not very good. I was lucky enough to have my very first submission to Dwellinggawker accepted only to have 5 rejected photo submissions in a row since then, due to poor photo quality. I really dread the idea of learning a new camera. I want to "point and shoot".
Not only do I decorate on a budget, I blog on a budget. No fancy bells and whistles, no granite countertops, no spa bathrooms, no vaulted ceilings, just average photos of a 1950's rambler decorated in a collected vintage style surrounded by annuals, perenniels and some tastefully placed junk.
So you might never see me in a magazine photo shoot or even in Dwellinggawker again, but if you like to follow misadventures in decorating with vintage collections and flower gardens dotted with junk, you might want to check in with me from time to time.
Enough of the soul searching and pity party part of this post...
Early on in my blogging career, I posted photos of what you might call my sign collection. I don't have them displayed all together, but scattered around my house. I have two friends that are sign painters, and I love signs. If you missed my sign collection, here it is.
Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign!
I must have heard that tune "Signs" by the Five Man Electric Band from 1971 a few too many times!
I was going to do a post featuring my "signs" (one of my favorite things), and I really didn't realize how many signs I had, until I started photographing them. It's a collection! And, this is just my inside collection. I have a sizeable collection of outdoor and gardening signs too.
I like to display them on doors, over doors, and tuck them in among my wall displays. Luckily, I have a talented sign painter friend I have known since grade school, that can make me any sign my heart desires. Thanks, Deb, of the Tattered Angel, you will recognize many of these signs.
This sign is a Jeff Foxworthy quote. I love it.
This group does not include my HOLIDAY signs either, so there are more.
I hope you enjoyed "Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign"!
