Look for the Signs

There are lots of signs in Hendersonville, NC and I must be drawn to them. Because I saw a theme when I looked at the photos I had taken.

I make my mosaics in Picassa.

Do you enjoy making them as much as I do!

LOVE your mosaics! I've had a bit of trouble creating them in Picasa, so I usually use PicMonkey.

Great signs. I'd love to visit The Joy of Books myself!
Is the photo of yourself on your sidebar new? It's new to me - you look great!

Arlene Grimm said...

My fav sign that you posted is ASAP...as southern as possible, too cute!! Have a blessed Sunday.

That has happened to me when go across the bridge into downtown Charleston. I love signs. One thing I've been thinking about doing is going down there and taking pix of all the lawyers in their seersucker suits at lunchtime. LOL Love your shots!

Stacey said...

I like signs too especially when they are unique.

Pondside said...

I'd like to go straight into The Joy of Books!
Great signs - there's just something about them, isn't there? I use Picasa too.

Hi Diane,

Hal and I love Hendersonville, too! I have pictures of some of the very same buildings in a post I did a few years ago. :) It is a charming town, isn't it? Love the new definition of ASAP. :-D

Your mosaics are lovely; I use Picasa and Pikmonkey for mine. They are both easy to work with. I hope you have a wonderful week!

Hugs,

Denise

podso said...

So that's what ASAP means! LOL. Cute post!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Love the ASAP one. LOL
Great job on the mosaics. I use picasa or picmonkey.

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

I do enjoy making them and use them in a lot of posts...i worry about having TOO many pictures for people to go through so I use them for that reason and then sometimes a photo is too big but if I use it in a mosaic it must downsize it and then Wordpress takes it ! :)

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I studied your mosaics closely and decided I like the second one best Diane. The new rule is a good one - I've made a couple of similar mosaics too and sometimes have had to ask hubby which one he likes best.
Thanks for linking to MM lavender sister. ♥

Jackie @ travelnwrite said...

Loved that ASAP... it will always come to mind when I see that sign!

Stephanie said...

I agree, post them both :) Just lovely, my friend. Have a wonderful week!

Karen said...

Lots of variety, I would like to take a peek inside that bookstore.
I use picmonkey for my mosaics.

Musings from Kim K. said...

I've been caught up on work after being offline all weekend. Your collages are a breath of fresh air. How did the weekend go by so fast?

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Haha, you DO love signs. Love that last one. Very funny.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Great collection of signs! Love the clock, too. I haven't made many mosaics - only for my blog header. They are fun to make. xo Karen

BeachGypsy said...

that reminds me of that old song "SIGNS" by the Five Man Electrical Band!!?? from the seventies maybe?? do you remember? Love the photos!

Veronica Roth said...

I love the name of that book store! If I had a book store I'd love to name it the joy of books. What could be better?

Donna@Gardens Eye View said...

Great mosaics...and I love the signs especially the last one. I adore making mosaics too!

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

It looks like a very pretty town Diane.
I love the 'Joy of Books' sign - I would have been in there like a shot! Bookshops are like a magnet for me, I could easily while away an hour or two there!
Lovely mosaics.
Shane

Marlene Plasencia said...

Forest Dream Weaver said...

Great idea to arrange these in a mosaic. Good to see there still some book stores around!
I agree about mosaic making being fun - I seldom made them until I came across Mary's blog and am so glad Judith has agreed to host.

Have a lovely week,
Ruby

I use to use picasa up until about a year ago. When I changed to a Mac I started with iPhoto and now I use Lightroom. Don't know how to do mosaics yet,more even if it's possible in Lightroom. If Ii had to do one I'd use picmonkey.
