Inspiration
Thanks for visiting this week everyone and thanks for all the great comments - what a fabulously creative group of readers you are! Here are a few inspiring things to get you through the weekend. First up: Some of my favourite type design, permanently painted on to classic, vintage, wooden, storefront signage and windows - it's a feast for the eyes . . . .

I love old signage too. And Duval is my last name like in photo #4. Yay!

Thanks for this post - loooove the old fashioned typography. It's so fun to find it in unexpected and forgotten places.
