GROW

  1. Wonderful. Did you make this or find it? I pick a word to guide my year, this year it is dream, and this photo makes me think "grow" is a fabulous word to guide us.

    1. I like the idea of having a guide word every year. They seem to serve as reminder of what to focus on and what to let go. I purchased this from Seeds of Change. There's a link on my Art page to their website and the artist who made the sign.

    2. The R is obviously important. What does that signify to you? What to let go = Release?

    3. When I bought the piece, it was sight unseen. I had only seen a sample. I knew it would say GROW but I didn't know what color the plates would be. I like the yellow/black popping out. It's an R with spunk. :o)

  2. Your sign reminds me of one my son-in-law gave me: Grow, dammit!"

  3. Tammy, this sign reminds you that you grow lots of seedlings and plant, doesn't it?

    1. My seedlings are doing well so they must have their own tiny GROW sign. :o)

    1. Thanks, but I'm not sure my garden is taking the hint.

    1. I thought so, too! The best part is that it wasn't made in a factory somewhere. :o)

    1. I also have one by the same artist that says I (heart symbol) gardening. There's a picture on my Art page. I love how funky they are. :o)

    1. I hope so! My garden is 3 wks behind where it was last year so I thought it needed some encouragement. Last years winter was too warm and this year it has been too long.

  8. I wonder how long it would take for you to get stopped if you drove around with that on your car. Or if the officer would have a sense of humor!

    1. I had that suggestion given to me but unless I could guarantee the cop had a good sense of humor, I'd probably end up with a big fat ticket.

    1. I would imagine that, too, but recycled license plate art isn't everyone's cuppa tea. I like its funky vibe. :o)

  16. We need some warmer temperatures before anything is going to grow! On the long weekend, we had one lovely day, a spring preview, if you will. It was sunny and warm. I didn't need more than a sweater when I was out in the garden. Heaven on earth! Yesterday, it was back to freezing with snow flurries. Maybe I need a sign that reads "Spring".

  20. Hi Tammy, hopefully the weeds won't pick up on the notice! Where did you get all the pieces from? Are there several signs in the area with vital letters missing? However you did it, it looks fantastic.
