Oh my, I found a couple inspirational for him but LOTS for ME. Isn't that the way it is when you go gift shopping for someone else ...you see everything you want? So I'm showing you the ones I like.
I LOVE this sign because it is quirkey and because it has a crow in it. It was prior to 1892 for "Crowfut's Inn", in Oxford. I wanna hook it!
Another I'm inspired to do from a tavern sign (again for me), but then I like the antique rug below it too so there will be an internal fight to decide which gets hooked.
Interesting enough I also found some tavern signs hooked by other people during this search. Here are two:
Look what else I stumbled upon....none other than the artwork of Lori Brechlin!
Another one I like is this Raven.
Actually I have lots more tavern signs saved but couldn't put them all here so chose my first favs. Seems I'm in a pickle now because there are so many images which interest me. Perhaps that means I should hook one which strikes my fancy and when I hook it he will enjoy it anyway?? I've thought of the words "Porter's Tavern" (well that wouldn't be good for the Crowfuts Inn but that one would be for ME) or could call it Porter's (or Greg's) Man Cave. I'm thinking he'd like the 'man cave' wording best.
Perhaps I'm in a self-enduced visual, sensory overload and need to step away from Pinterest, finish making my vegetable soup, and work on hooking my Magdalena style crow.
Today there were above freezing temperatures here and after the snow of Tuesday, the snow and sleet from yesterday, then the 40* temps of today produced all the slush outside. At least it isn't below freezing or snowing but haven't listened to the forecast so tomorrow will be a surprise. Have a great evening everyone.
