Signs, Signs, Unusual Signs

Last weekend, we spent it at our home north of Orlando, in a town called Eustis. Although our home is not in the country, there are many orange groves and horse farms in the surrounding area. As we were driving around on Saturday, I saw these two signs that caught my eye. 

I have never seen a speed limit sign that had 5 miles per hour on it. Maybe you have in your area!

Red roses proclaim "I love you."

Red Roses Proclaim I Love You

They are the ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion.

Florists say they can not keep enough roses in stock for Valentine's Day. In fact, it is estimated that about 2 billion dollars will be spent on flowers alone in 2013.

Valentine's Vignette

You know when they say "the gift that keeps on giving!" well, my junk pile finds are just that. A while back I told you about all the great finds that my neighbors through out. Another remake from my junk pile items. This time it is a white picture frame that I decided to use for Valentine's Day. 
My husband says, "I can't let anything go to the land fill". Well, it really does bother me that so many items can be re-purposed and I am glad to do my part.

From Dumpster to Pretty Lady

Two weeks ago, I posted about items I acquired from trash pick up on my street, my baskets. (Still have more items to refinish). Well this week it is an item I found in a dumpster. I would have liked to found more, but I was yelled at to NOT pick anything from the dumpster. Oh, well at least I got this frame.

It didn't look like this when I rescued it however, but I really liked it and had to have it.

The Starburst( or Shooting Star) is Exploding

The Starburst or Shooting Star (botancial name: Clerodendrum quadriloculare) is a wonderful flower on a fast growing, large scale shrub or small tree. Not sure if I would call it a shrub since ours is more like 15 feet tall. We received it from a neighbor about 3 three years ago. It was only 3 feet tall. Last year was the first time it bloomed and it was gorgeous and this year it is even more beautiful.
