I'm so glad you stopped by today. Have I got a treat for you!
More on that in a minute ...
I don't know about where you live, but here in East Tennessee the weather last weekend was absolutely gorgeous! COLD, but gorgeous! Renaissance Man and I invited some friends to head to the mountains with us. It was the first visit to the Smoky Mountains for one of the gals. What a treat it was for her. For all of us!
She especially enjoyed seeing this "little cabin in the woods." It's part of a long-abandoned farmstead that was home to Noah "Bud" Ogle from 1883 to 1925.
The place is called "Junglebrook" after the dense growths of rhododendrons and magnolia that bordered the streams.
Using axe, plow, and gun, the mountains were forever changed as early settlers cut into forests that were centuries old ... and built their homes.
Shelters ... where they lived, and loved, and raised their families.
Their homes were much more crude than ours today, but they still provided a place of refuge. Same as ours.
But while East Tennessee was being settled, industrialization was taking place in Europe ... and the now-classic blue enamel signs were beginning to appear in the form of street signs and house numbers.
Do you love enamel signs on houses as much as I do? If your answer is YES! then you're going to love the treat I promised you.
I was recently contacted by Ramsign, a small Danish company specializing in classic enamel signs. Their products are all based on original designs and techniques used in Europe "forever." Ramsign offers house number signs, address plaques, door signs ... You're only limited by your creativity!
