More Old Signs: Chinatown

I took the kids to Chinatown this week to explore and to learn a bit about Chinese New Year.
It was my first time visiting.
It was a photography heaven.
Especially the signs.
Here are some of my favorites.









I am not a shabby chic person.
You won't find it in my house (at least not intentionally.  there are many shabby things waiting to become chic.  but not the 2 together.)
But I love the way so many of these signs are worn and worse for the wear.
I love the fonts.
I love the neon.
I love the colors.
I love old signs.


From the loud silence on my last post, it seems I am nearly alone in this love affair.
Take a closer look at what you are missing out on.
If you want to see the rest of our trip, go here.


Off to bed to dream of signs.  Or who knows what else--I have the weirdest dreams when I'm pregnant.
Love from,
Greta

G,
Love your style girl. I also love the way you own it. You are your own girl. This is what I strive for when raising three daughters, a planted foundation.

Thanks for your sweet sweet comment over my way. I love your words. So genuine.

Thanks for your undying support.
