Gift Shop Sayings

Last week I helped give a tour to a group of teachers of Merrehope, an antebellum home in our town. I took a moment to snap pictures of these gifts that feature sayings in the gift shop.

One of my favorites…….DSC01024

My motto….LOLIMG_0275

I like this philosophy too!


I think there is lots of truth to this one!


My husband probably wouldn’t appreciate this one!IMG_0271

And finally-some good advice!


Do you have a favorite saying? I would love to hear about it in your comment!

Thanks for stopping by!

This house protected by killer dust bunnies.
If Mom (Dad) says 188 Nana (PaPa)
when the going gets tough...just cowboy up and make the ride
Life is short...Live it out loud!

Blessings, Susie

Diane, I love your sayings...and I do have one I use alot and not only about things in my life, but sometimes when I am talking to my boys...I say to them...."If it's not one thing, it's your Mother", then I look at them and kind of helps ease the discussion we have just had.

Our animals are all rescues. My father bought me a sign that says, "Children left unattended will be given a free kitten."

I love these! After my brother-in-law lived in Alabama for 2 years he came home explaining the reality of the first one! He's been home for 20ish years and still uses y'all!

My friend always says "If it's not one thing it's ten." I find this, quite often, to be true!


Linda said...

How funny...I loved them all!

I don't really have a favorite saying but if I did I'm sure it would have something to do with dogs. I can't live without my little guy!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Those were all so cute Diane!

We are famous here for saying "Fuhgeddaboudit"! LOL!

Southern Lady said...

How cute, Diane. I love the "Y'all" towel best.

One of my favorite sayings is one on a pillow I bought for my daughter when she was in college. It says "If it's not one thing, it's your mother!"

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

These are cute, Diane! I particularly like the one about Granny!

Betty Jo said...

These are awesome! Love the Granny ones. ♥

Nancy said...

Love them! Right now, we say, and lightheartedly, not in a sad way, "It is what it is!" so we can move on and enjoy!

I always told this to my first graders, as well as to my three daughters: "It doesn't cost anything to have good manners."

Good morning Diane, I do love these sayings. A fun read today. Yes, I have a couple to share. My mom always said, "Pride feels no pain" I say, "Never tell your husband anything he doesn't need to know" and my aunt says, "I love a man with dish pan hands" Are you smiling yet???

Have a fabulous day.


Darlene said...

Those are all GREAT! One of my favorites is "Dance like no one is looking". LOVE it!!

Housework makes you ugly. (but my mom kept an immaculate house, so I tell her it skips a generation so I'm not taking any chances ;D)

I'm not bossy, I just have better ideas. (for my sister)

Brenda Pruitt said...

I'm trying to think. My menopausal brain has many lapses. But speaking of...I'd better be kind to my children.

SmilingSally said...

That last one fits right in with my post today. LOL

Chandy said...

Lovely sayings! Diane, what a fun post!


These sayings are hilarious! I love them all.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I love them...especially the old rooster, which would be applicable in our house but likely not appreciated, LOL. :-)

We are big wine fans and have a dish towel that says, "Forgive me for I have ZINned." :-) And on a similar topic, one of our favorite local hangouts has a little hand painted sign that says, "When life gives you lemons...add vodka." Ha!

Hi Diane - just discovered your blog this weekend and am enjoying it! Had to stop when I saw this. A friend once told me her daughter-in-law had a saying that she'd like to hang on the wall: "Just because you're loud (or louder) doesn't make you right!" If you've ever been around...people who like to argue, you know this hits home. Another one I ran across in the Country Home catalog, was actually a sign or plaque that states "Be Nice or Leave". These are both my current favorites. Leslie
