Ice Cream Cone

Today I worked from home which allowed me to work on a few blog ideas as well.  Nothing is finished yet, but I have wanted to share this adorable sign I picked up at a yard sale about a month ago.  I really should sell it and I thought I would try to copy the sign and make a new one too, but I just don't know if I can part with it.

It's a new chippy peely painted sign put together with new old wire and an old new ice cream scooper.  Isn't it adorable?  It really looks vintage, doesn't it?  Well....on the back side it says "Made in China."
It sure fooled me.  How about you?  I say who cares?  I love it no matter where it was made, what its age, or new or old.  It just makes me happy and right now it's residing on the trellis outside my front door.  Thanks for taking a peek.  I think I'll go have some ice cream.

What a super cute sign! I agree with you, it does look old. Definitely puts me in the mood for some ice cream...MMM strawberry. :-)

Funny! That scoop it perfect. I'll join you for ice cream. I like it almost as much as I like cake.

I love it, Maggie! Love the addition of the ice cream scoop. Don't you wish ice cream cones were 10 cents again?

Love it! I love old signs and I am crazy about vintage red-handled kitchen tools!

Hard to believe that ice cream sign is an import, really cute idea and the scooper is the clincher to make it look old. Now we'll all be on the lookout for old ice cream scoopers or be rusting them outside for awhile to get that look. Wonder how many people will be making signs like that? Think I just might for one.

I don't care if it is new, that sign speaks to me! Love it! It reminds me of the ice cream truck that cruised around our small town neighborhood when I was growing up. I may just have to make me one of my own. Thanks for sharing!
