First off, I feel I should apologize for all the photos to follow.
I'm a little excited about this project and went a little crazy taking pictures.
This is one of those projects that almost never happened! Ever have an idea floating around inside your head, yet never take the time to finished the thought? Instead, your left with a spark of an idea ... and months pass ...the spark flares up again ... you move on to more pressing matters ...repeat, repeat, repeat. You get the idea.
Last week I decided it was high time to finish the thought and do something about it.
The result is this sign. . .
I knew I wanted a planked sign with a cow on it.
- loving cows lately-
For the farm name I combined two sides of my family history.
My mothers grandparents lived in a little town in Wisconsin called Springbrook. They called this small unincorporated town their home from the time of their marriage until they passed away. I remember visiting their small cottage many times.
My fathers great, great, great, great grandfather bought land in Springbrook Township also in Wisconsin. The land was farmed by one family member or another for over 100 years.
Springbrook Farm seemed like an appropriate name for my sign. Plus I like the daily reminder of my heritage.
The date was pick to honor the year the farm land was purchased.
I love the sign surrounded by the stars and few items I have deemed "farm like".
A vintage fan...
A small chair and pretty pillow...
It even look good from across the room!
See I warned you, lots of pictures!
