Thrilled was I to find the fab wooden sign to hang above hubby's tractor. Now, it didn't start out that way.
It originally boasted the phrase "The Proctor"....apparently pillaged off an old hotel no longer in existence. "Proctor" Sounding more like a doctor's title ...and one you hope to never visit.
Under intense scrutiny I noticed the faint remnants of even older paint...the sign was originally "Cottage Hotel". Ok, it's not like I cracked the Davinci Code....but I felt pretty good about my keen eye and amatuer sleuthing!
So knowing others had repainted before me...my guilt was alleviated.
With the swish of my brush and the change of 2 letters it suddenly morphed into "The Tractor" ....apropos don't ya think?
