Garden shed!

I love vintage tin signs, like my Marilyn one. I have a few dotted around the house and in my garden. They evoke nostalgia in me and I love the humour in them, like my 'Honest Otto' one hanging on my shed door. I am coveting the Fab-licious one this Summer! It reminds me of my happy childhood holidays on the south coast of England.

Have a sweet day!
