Remember that “Lunch Now Being Served” sign I blogged about last year?
Well, it’s hanging in a new spot in the kitchen as of today:
After I got done decking out the countertops the other day, I felt like I wanted to add something above the stove. I stood there and stared at it for a while, and finally decided that it:
– had to be something see-thru (didn’t want to cover up our backsplash)
– should be something lettered (just felt right)
–would ROCK if it was something I didn’t have to leave the house to find!
Boom: The Lunch sign hanging right around the corner! 😀 #LoveItWhenThatHappens
I tried it out with it’s original wire hanger, but I wasn’t loving the way that part of it looked:
The (super-hard-to-straighten) wire had a mind of it’s own, and the dark color of it really stood out against the backsplash, which made it’s wonkiness even more noticeable.
Tone-wise, I wanted it to look more like the rope our pendant lights hang from, and the corbels our bar top sits on…
…so I snipped that wire off, and hung it up with a piece of twine!
It’s a small change, but see how the sign gets to shine now that the wobbly wire is gone?
I just love it! 🙂
In flea market news, I wanted to share a few photos from one that opened here in Pike Road not long ago. It’s called Red Top Market, and it’s owned and operated by a sweet gal named Lois:
It’s right off Exit 16 if you’re traveling to or from Montgomery, Alabama on I-85 (North or South).
The street address is 14 Marler Road, Pike Road, Alabama.
Lois and her family had been fixing up the place for a while before they moved everything in, and boy did my heart a skip a beat (or three!) the day they stuck their “Antiques” sign up in front of the building! 😀
Just wanted to invite you locals to swing by and check it out if you’re in the neighborhood…and those of you coming to The Chapel Market on October 25th should definitely make a visit there, too! 🙂
