Here's your sign....


A very large wooden sign...Lovely...


With chippy worn paint of muted grays ,this sign goes perfect in this space.

I could hardly wait till Marc got home so I could show him my new love.
I snatched him up and directed him straight to the bathroom.
He stood there with a puzzled look on his face and said
 "I dont get it".
You dont get it? What dont you get?
The sign..
Why does it say showers?


"Why not" I replied......
{crickets}
"Oh"
I tried to explain that it was to look as though I found it in a salvage yard.
Waiting patiently for me after years of directing young kids to the "Bath House" at church camp.
{crickets}
"Oh"...... "If you love it"?......
                                                ...I give up....

  2. Too funny! What would we do without our men, though??? They sure do keep us laughing!

  3. My husband would be the same way. Sorta bursts the bubble when you are so excited about something and they just don't get it. It was a beautiful sunny day here, and much needed. I think it is supposed to be raining here again soon. So we will enjoy it while we can. Have a great week! Jackie

  5. Well, I love it. I hear crickets often when trying to explain things to my hubby. He never gets it, but I do, so we're both happy.

  7. Hmmm...are you married to my husband? There is something about getting so excited..only to have your bubble burst OR not even get blown up. :)

    I think it is quite cute. No crickets here.

    Cheers~

    LOL @ the hubby!! Oh well, he's a man. At least he was willing to look at the new masterpiece :-)

  9. I got it right away. I'd love to spend a day in a man's brain.

    Then again, I probably wouldn't get much done. ;)

  10. Men... Go figure. :)
    My guy would have said the same thing. This is why we have girl friends!

  13. That is amazing and sounds like any conversation I could have had with my husband.

    I brought home a milk glass cake stand and he was baffled.
    "but, why do you put it on a stand? Don't you eat it?"

    Oh how I love my hubby. Great sign by the way. :)

  14. hahahaha poor you... You should have called a friend to come look and get EXCITED with you...

  17. that is something that would happen here... unless of course it was worse. like when i brought home fabric to cover our dining rom chairs and he said "over my dead body!" so i did it while he was deployed :) anyway, i think your sign is cool. and appropriate!

  18. Love the sign. My husband and son would have been the same way. Only the would have said "Why? We know where the shower is." They just don't get it sometimes. Yet, other times their totally on board with my ideas.
    Have a blessed week.

  19. I love the sign, but I gotta say I really laughed at your husband's reaction. Too funny. Men crack me up.

  25. I bet he had that glazed over look in his eyes too...like mine does when I try to explain or show him something. Gotta love them though! And the sign too...very cute :)

  29. Well, I get it - and I love it!

    Husbands are just too cute aren't they? Bless their little 'ole hearts!

  30. LOL!!! That is hilarious! Just like a man. My husband would have been the same way.

    I LOVE it! Who cares if the men in our lives do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I mean't...who cares if the men in our lives don't. Ugh! Pregnancy brain! :)

  32. MEN! They just don't get it!!! I get so excited when I make a new outfit for my daughter with fabric I've been coveting for months and I just feel the need to put it on her and go to Target just so she gets to wear it. His reaction? "Um, yeah, it's cute."

    I LOVE the new sign! I think it's precious!

  33. some things are just better shared with girlfriends!!! Too cute!

  34. I know how you feel. I don't know why I even get excited to show my husband things that aren't related to sports or guns. It is pointless...Thank goodness you have us to "ohhhh" and "ahhhh" over your finds. By the way, the sign looks FAB!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is exactly the reaction I get around here. Travis is so unimpressed with my brilliant ideas. That may be one of the reasons I blog, actually. Sometimes a girl just wants someone to "oooh and aaah" over what she's made. :)

    I love your sign. It is chippy-paint perfection! :)

  36. i love it too! i have one in the kitchen that i love too...says "danger mosquitoes". not sure why i had to have it, but i did.

    ReplyDelete
  37. haha! that's exactly what my husband would say. They just don't get it

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, what does he know?! LOL

    I love it and think it's perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I LOVE it! I might have to make one for my guest bathroom! Great job!

  40. I love it susie!
    Men just don't GET things...you know!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love it Susie and to tell you the truth, I thought of church camp, too!LOL
    I went to church camp when it was really primitive...can you say chicken wire bunks and ticking mattresses......this and that and the other! Compared to that, my kids went church camp resort!

    Your sign is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  42. HAHAHAHAHA...MEN! Love the sign and I cracked up even more with your insertion of {crickets}...I can hear that chirping now....LOLOLOLOLOL

    ReplyDelete
  43. Why is it the hubs in our lives don't get it? Ah well, gotta love them none the less. Glad you shared with us cause we totally get it and LOVE IT!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ha! Sounds like my husband! he doesn't get a lot of the stuff I paint!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The exact same thing would happen at my house with my hubs. I howver, think it is a lovely sign and does go perfect in that spot.

  46. Hi, Susie
    MEN! - dont understand 'em but cant throw 'em out either,, mines the same way,, he wouldnt get it either. But I love it..

    ReplyDelete
  47. It sounds like you found a common ground among bloggers---husbands that just don't get it!!
    In our family, my brother 'gets it' and enjoys it. My brother-in-law (my sister's husband) 'gets it' even more!!! So that just leaves my poor husband out in the cold. But the great thing is that he does his 'golf' thing and I do my 'whatever-we-call-it-always-on-the-hunt-thing'. We call it even and appreciate the fact that we both do things to make us happy!!
    Glad to see there is a whole club of us tho! Great sign.

  48. Laughing so hard because it sounds so familiar. I had a piece of furniture -- beautiful, shabby, chippy patina. I use the word had because while I was away someone took it upon himself to "FINISH" it for me and make it look brand spanking new. Gee, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Haaahaaa! This is hilarious! And so familiar, it's sad... :) I think your sign is awesome! Love that chippy grey paint!

    ReplyDelete
  51. LOL!! They are so honest its funny. I love your sign. :))

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh yes.. I have a similar conversation with my man too... They try, but they just DON'T get it girl! It's beautiful though, and you did an amazing job! (As always) Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. They are ALL the same, sweet Susie! I love your sign, it's perfect. And I totally adore your waffle & linen towels below. I may have to steal that one from you, since I have a monogrammer in the family too. xoxo

  54. HA!

  55. Men just sometimes don't get it do they?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love it! I think it looks great! My husband doesn't get it either. If he could have white plain walls everywhere he would be just fine...me I like the nice touches that can be added to a room for fun!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Susie - I get it and I LOVE it! Men...

  59. Fun! Are you gonna add that to your shop? I'd need the hand facing a different way tho! Beth

  60. Hilarious! this sounds like a scene from my life. I have a wonderful supportive husband, but he is absolutely clueless on things like this! He would not "get it" either! Too funny.
