Raven Shoe Dressing (polish) Advetisment Sign

 Angie at Knick of Time 
took this tiny ad from an 1888 Harper's Magazine, enlarged it, cleaned up the background and offered it free to bloggers.

 I wanted to do a silhouette of just the Raven and shoe. So I cut off the Ads in the background; enlarged it to print on an 8½" x 11" paper and drew it off on a ¼" thick board. 

 It went unfinished for a year or so and this year decided it was time to paint the ad on the shoe and use it for Fall decorations. 

Raven = Fall  ... Halloween. 

I used a Krylon White Paint Pen to fill in the letters.

Was not real easy to do because this was rough lumber.  

Here it is displayed with my small collection of wooded shoe forms.
I lightly sanded the lettering.  
(this helped cover up my messy paint job)
I tried displaying it with this Fall decoration near our back door entry. 

This is a work counter with cabinets above, in our garage next to our back door. I try to decorate it for the seasons ...
but it also catches a lot of junk.

The shoe sign was not a part of this decoration, but just trying to find places to picture it. 
Most everything you see here is thrifted. 
The lamp was just repurposed ... will link to that when I post it. 
The market basket and apples were recent finds.

The large metal lamp/urn recycle can be seen here.  
Trophy-Urn-Lamp ... Did I find a Hidden Treasure??

Thanks for stopping by. 
I would love for you to say hello.

Happy Fall.
