Show and Tell Friday

I can't believe it's been so long since I did a "Show & Tell Friday" post!
Things have been so busy on recent Fridays, between my jobs, and moving Jessica back to our house (I'll explain in another post at another time), and it seemed like Fridays were over before I got to enjoy them.
Today was busy, too, but I promised myself to do a post, so here we are. If you want to see what everyone is showing & telling about, check out Kelli's blog here.
Awhile back I was reading a blog (sorry, don't remember which one) and the woman was talking about using typography and words in her decorating. I thought, "I do that, too!". I started looking around the house, and here is what I found: "imagine" is painted on the playroom wall, along with several other words like "discover", "build", "play", etc.
The "kitchen" sign is obviously in the kitchen. It's a tin sign I found at Hobby Lobby right about the time we painted the kitchen red.
"Joy comes in the Morning" is a Bible verse (Psalms 30:5), and that hangs in the main bathroom. The colorful Mary Engelbreit poster, "Books fall open, we fall in" is in the playroom. I think that makes reading sound so adventuresome!
Another sign from the kitchen reads "Be careful how you address the Queen". It was a gift to me from one of my Area Managers when I was Supervisor at Head Start. They used to call me the "Head Start Queen".
Lastly is a sweet little sign that Jessi gave me for Christmas, "The best things in life are not things...". That currently hangs in the living room.
I'd like to have more words around me in my home, and have a couple of things planned. Stop back in the next couple of weeks and see what I've added!

I enjoy quotes for decor but I don't really have much! I like yours.

Thanks for your Show and Tell.

The picture of your Dad reminds me of a friend up here in Alaska! They could be relatives!

Nice! I had not heard the books fall open quote before!

I have "a thing" about words ~ both in my artwork and in my decorating. One of my favourites is a little sign I made which reads: If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody Happy

These are great samples of typography used in decor. The messages set a mood and typefaces/fonts are true art. I love them.

Your kitchen sign would be perfect in my kitchen and I always love Mary Englebreit. I love decorating with words and sayings and you've found some great ones. Thanks for sharing with us.
