Signs to Save a Mother's Breath
Cool ani gif Did you know that you can click "File"on your browser toolbar and select to either e-mail the address or the entire page to a friend?
 These are some signs every mother of teenagers (daughters in particular) needs to have hanging around--to save her breath, keep her sanity, and maintain her sense of humor through it all...  They really need no further explanation!  I  was still reeling from having survived (somewhat battered and bruised) my daughter's tempestuous teenage years...and that was many years ago!...when I had a fit of nostalgia for those days when things such as manners and decorum were the norm, and came up with these signs.  I had great fun embellishing them with individual "ladies" and tole doodads.  I thought they might be something really refreshing to have hanging on one's wall to just point to at Appropriate Moments.  (Brother! have we all been there!!!)
They all read:
 House Rules for Raising Proper Young Ladies
1.  No...because I said so
2 - 10       "

Each sign is a one-of-a-kind.  Each has a short brass chain hanger.

Chastity is a Virtue Shabby Chic sign - measures 5.5
Chastity is a Virtue.  Now there's an old-fashioned idea if there ever was one!   Sign measures 5.5" x 10"; almost 13" with brass chain hanger.  Sides are painted in mauve to match the girl's dress.  Backside also painted mauve and has my label attached.  A one-of-a-kind.  *Note:  This should probably be classified as "Shabby Chic" as the wood piece has various flaws and defects in the surface.  (Somehow I thought that was kind of fitting for the "dated" subject matter.)  I decided to further enhance this by sanding down the edges to give it even more of an antique look.  
One only made (so far???)
