Easy as ABC?

I want to share more than just a sign with you today.

Although the color and trim alone would give me plenty to gab about...Ha!


Not today.

Today's lesson is brought to you by the letter "M".

For Mistakes. We all make them.

I made a KING Daddy one a few days ago.

Many of you caught it before I did....thank you.

Unfortunately, it was a wee bit too late and they were on their way.

(Haze from marsh fires in NOLA) cough cough~

I panicked and contacted the sweet family that placed the order.

They are being shipped back as we speak ..wheww~

But something bothered me.

In that tizzy of embarassment, I deleted that post.

Who wants to be known as the painter who renamed San FranOisco....ha!

We all know that my grammar and spelling does not bring all the girls to the blog...ha!

I'm giving myself a break here.

For once.

I'm learning it's ok to be human. Make mistakes.

Sometimes the lesson is in the learning...  

ps... You caught that Sliver Springs too?

So much for having a husband with a Masters check your work...ha!

I love ya'll to bits and just wanted to thank you for reading my

chicken scratch...

xoxox Susie~

  14. thanks for the reminder that it's ok to make mistakes.

  15. Miss Susie - that is not a King Daddy MISTAKE - it is merely an error! Thankfully, errors can be corrected, and mistakes can be forgiven - it's the hurtful words we say to ourselves when our humanness evidences itself that causes real damage 'I'm stupid, unworthy, incapable ...' Why do we women expect perfection? Striving for excellence in all we do is admirable but not as praiseworthy as striving to be the godly women God has called us to be! Transforming daily into the likeness of Christ - leaves plenty of room for both mistakes and forgiveness!

  16. Lighten up,this will make for a good laugh. Your work is wonderful that ought to count for something. Tough business when your client expect perfect spelling. Enjoyed your post. Drop by for a visit. Kathy

  17. LOL! you are too funny! and I LOVE the ABC one!!

  18. First and foremost, let’s get one thing straight: Bandage Dresses“There’s an incorrect assumption about Herve that it’s only for evening,”Herve Leger Dresses Lubov told me up on the 18th floor of her Oktoberfest Costumes Times Square showroom and headquarters. “It can be worn anytime! People also assume that it should fit really tight, but personally I wear it one size bigger because I like the comfort of it while still getting the silhouette.”Nun Costumes These are the dresses that are coming into our stores and online now, and these are the dresses that are going to show up come Saturday, because as we pointed out in our runway report last season, an Herve Leger show is full of Herve Leger dresses.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
