My Name Is Sandy Toes...I am addicted to Signs!

Well, you know when you move (yes, it's been 1 1/2 years)...you just want to get everything out of the box and somewhere. Well, I am now at that point going through closets and some drawers that have no rhyme or reason....the places where I took something out of the moving box and just put it there!
We have a mother-in-law suite and I was going through the closet/laundry room. It was then that I realized I need to go to "Signs Intervention ". I have signs that are big, small, signs with phrases and signs with one word. Signs that inspire...signs that just tell you where you are..like "Pantry", "Laundry Room" even one that says "You are here".









Here are a few that "foster" my addiction...this is not even counting the ones in the storage room. Or the ones with my kids names on them or initial or last name....my daughters room is full of signs with her "name" on it!


So this Spring...I am going to have a "SIGN GARAGE SALE"!




{geez, I guess I have to buy a garage sale sign.....}

What "Home Decor" are you addicted to???

I'm so in love with that Good Food sign!

I'm Addicted to Picture Frames and Old spools.

Becky said...

For a while it was garden knick knacks and watering cans ... the small ones.

I love all the signs. I always think about getting some when I see them, but then I don't. Your house must be a good read. ;-)

I love all of your signs! I tend to do the same thing! Become obsessed with a item and collect, collect...

I started collecting bunny rabbits back in college. People still give them to me. I also collect beautiful antique sterling silver dresser pieces.
Have a great day tommorow!

I love all of you signs.

I am not really addicted to anything in particular. Just like pretty things.

Becky said...

Oops I forgot to mention that you can help me win a give away by voting for my ugly mug. Thanks.

Julie said...

those are fun!!! I am addicting to crafting and crafting materials. So fun!!!

a woman who is said...

That is amazing...I am thinking...nope I don't think I have one sign. Now things with birds on them...go figure.

::Jan:: said...

I love signs too. I have a couple of the same ones as you :)

I have glass and silver dishware here and there. I love the contrast and the sparkle. I also have a love of old bottles too.

Thanks Sandy.

If you have all those signs in your home, you are addicted. But what GREAT signs they are!!

Love and Prayers,

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Well, we're all addicted to something!!! But I have one more for you, that I saw last year. Ready? "You're never too old to do goofy stuff."

Hee-hee. Have a good week!

Mari said...

I love signs - but I need more! I have lots of candles. I love to see and smell them.

Astrid said...

I love 'em! I'm really fond of that Good Food sign. Something about it...is just calling me. LOL!

Hmmmm....what am I addicted to? Toadstool mushrooms, owls (must be a child of the 70s!), always had a thing for clocks and Polish pottery (which I'm slowly collecting).

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Those are some great signs!!

I'm addicted to old glass.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

ooops

and clocks!!!!

Jodee Leader said...

I love signs too! I especially love your "brush and floss" sign. That is so cute for the bathroom. I am just addicted to shopping for things for our house. I can't think of just one thing!

duchess said...

I'm a sign girl too - they're just so darn cute.
I'm diggin' birds right now. I'm finding them everywhere throughout my house.

coco said...

Love your signs...maybe instead of getting rid of them you should hang them all together as a "collection" of signs! Taking part in the hooked on Fridays has shown me I have way too many addictions!

At Home In Georgia said...

Holy moly! I like them all but that Good Food one is really neat!

Busy Bee Suz said...

So cute and funny.
I have a few of the same ones as you....what does that say about me????

Lindy Mashmitt said...

I love your signs very much!!! VERY VERY VERY MUCH!

Janene said...

I love all of your signs!
I love to have words on the walls!
If you decide to have a "Sign Garage Sale"...post them on your blog first...I know several of us who would take them off your hands!

Christy said...

I love signs too! I don't think it's a bad addiction at all:) If you ever need to get rid of any though... I'll take the "Good Food" one. Love it!

Betsy said...

I have several signs too but I tend to love lamps. I have four in my family room alone. Well, I have four in my bedroom too. See what I mean.

Preppy 101 said...

I love your signs! That may be my new addiction :-) I love 'throw pillows' - always think every single room needs them - haha - never really thought about it until your post!! xoxo

Denise said...

That's too funny. I have few signs but girl, I've got nothin' on you! Let me know when you're having your garage sale. I might want to buy into your addiction.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

How fun - lots of fun. I think I am addicted to topiaries, but my collection only includes 4. Does that even count as a collection?

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I also have way too many signs AND vinyl words on walls!
(When is the garage sale-I may have to just drive on down!I always need more signs!)

April said...

Wow...and I thought I was bad!!! You really have a problem, my dear, but in a good way! If you're like me, it's impossible to pass up a sign with a cute or inspirational message. Just not gonna happen! I love them! You're REALLY not going to sell them, are you?

Jboo said...

Great signs and I think that's a better addiction than mine - chocolate! Wish I lived close by and I'd be at that garage sale!

Have a fun week!
Janet

Montee said...

You're gonna make a killin' at your sale!


I am not really addicted to anything, but I do love to go junking and if I find a beautiful piece for cheap, I get pretty excited!

lmerie said...

Love your signs!!

I could easily be addicted plates. I have 5 sets and if there were storage would be tempted to more. I love bowls too! :)

squawmama said...

Tricia Anne said...

I like signs too and only have a couple. But a friend and I are collecting stencils and heading to Lowe's to start painting our own signs and signs for gifts!! :o) Can't wait!

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

Haha! I'm also addicted to signs!! I have them in most rooms of my house! I actually have the HOME is where your story begins sign in 2 sizes! (ok, my friend bought me one!) I actually really want one for the garage. Yup. It's from target and says reduce*reuse*recycle, and I want to put it above the trash and recycling cans!

I'm also really addicted to chalkboards. Have just a few ;)!
And mini Heath bars, but that's another story...

LuLu & Co. said...

Karen said...

I think I have the same problem.....

Joanna said...

Love the signs! I am stepping into the signs myself. I have purchased 3 in the past couple of weeks to add to the ones that I already have! Uh oh...I feel an addiction starting...Maybe we should start a support group. *smiles*

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

You and my cutie-pie sister-in-law are cut from the same cloth. She has a zillion signs, but I love them! They all make me smile!

What a wonderful collection!

Katie said...

So cute and I have the same one with the crown in my bathroom the lovely and pure one I believe. I love all your signs looks like you have a collection.

Cathy said...

Clearly, you could make a nice living making "Good Food" signs because we would all buy them!

We share a love of signs, but I really have a hard time staying away from ceramic dishware -- crocks, plates, mugs, platters....and I'm into a bird phase right now, too :)

Sarah said...

I love all of your signs! We just recently bought a "kitchen" sign that hangs over my stove. My husband's comment was, "it's a good thing we know where we are now" (he thinks he's funny)!

I am really into decorative birds right now. I think I could have several of them in every room.

Erin said...

I love all your signs! I love words on walls and signs with words. So great!

Brittany said...

Love them all! I too am addicted to signs! I have them everywhere. Although, I saw a few that you have that I would like to have. I might have a new project on my hands!

Amber M. said...

Your signs are so fun...I love the "brush and floss" one!

TOTALLY addicted to the letter "m"...it is the first letter of my last name and I have them all over our home.

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL is that a collection or an addiction??? But at least you have great taste...there are so many beautiful signs scattered around your house!

The Blonde Duck said...

Here's your sign! Get it! :)

Blueberry Buttons said...

Hi Sandy,
I am new to your blog by way of Jen at Sancturary Art from Home. Love your blog and I have to admit, I think I have tons of signs myself. I love signs and my home shows that I love more then one collection, oops. It gets a little crowed.
Stop over some time. It is so nice to meet you.
Cheryl

Taryn said...

My mom has the same "home is where your story begins" and I have one made by the same people that says Live.Laugh.Love. Fun.

Primitiques 'n Poetry said...

Ha! An illiterate person would be lost and confused in your house, eh? I see a few I'd be willing to buy, come your Spring sale. ~Mindy

Nikowa@KHA said...

WOW I love those signs!

I'm a "addicted" to plants! My house looks like a jungle!

Jessica said...

I love the signs! I don't know that I am "addicted" to any one decoration item...I do HAVE to have every room painted! In fact the only places in my house not painted are the closets and the pantry.

Colleen said...

I love all your signs!!! They are adorable!!! I have some signs but not as much as you. I think I have sign envy : )
I'm addicted to a lot of things. I love tea cups and white pitchers.

Cherry's Jubilee said...

I love your signs...I have some too....but boy howdy you have a lot. I love stars too...lamps, pillows..which my dh does not like. cherry

LOVE that good food sign, with the fork and the spoon! SO CUTE! Great blog - had to say hello! Happy Tuesday!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

This is a scream! I am partially addicted to a lot of things, including signs, Sandy, but my biggest addiction is china!

Loved this post...

XO,

Sheila

Laura said...

I love signs too! And you sure have quite the collection! :) That is funny about having to buy a garage sale sign...You should have an online garage sale like someone else suggested. You'd rid yourself of all of them fast! :) I'd buy one...or three...

I'm addicted to gingham. Every room in my houe has gingham -even if it's just a little touch - somewhere.

Dawn said...

hmmm... you do have a lot of signs!! but how will you choose which to get rid of? i love them all!!! especailly "love you to the moon & back"

Kim @ Forever Wherever said...

Great post! I love signs...but I might not have as many as you!:-)
-Kim

Deb said...

I am totally addicted to signs too. Sometimes I think I have to many, but then I come up with another idea for one, and I just end up adding to my collection. I think I also have too many picture frames, but you can never have too many of those.

Our Complete Family said...

Your signs are great! The Good Food one is my fav, although I love them all!
What a fun thing to be addicted to hun!!!

frillsfluffandtrucks said...

Oh my goodness, you DO have a lot of signs! There are some super cute ones in your collection, too! :)

~ Sarah

Kacey R. said...

Um, I'm thinking you need to have a "Blog Sale" instead of the garage sale. I mean, come on, no set up, you won't be freezing in
the morning and sweating by lunch. Much more relaxed...I'm just sayin'. :D

LOVE your signs.

Melissa, Multi-Tasking Mama said...

Love your signs, I have some of the same ones.
