Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Polka Dot Frame

It's summer. How can I tell? Besides the temperature hitting 95 degrees today, we've been drowning in salesmen at our door. Last week we said hello and goodbye to the Kirby vacuum guy, a bug spray guy, an all purpose cleaner guy, an alarm system guy, and the Avon lady. I simply had to do something. I set this nice polite sign out on the front porch and we didn't get one single uninvited visitor today.

Oh, did you notice the frame? (Lisa!) They're at Target but they're going fast.

I've had more solicitors than usual, too. This is the cutest idea. I think I'm going to try it.
I need to go to Target :-)
Blessings,

I would like to solicit that cute frame away from you! I must get to Target pronto. Our development has a no soliciting rule but stragglers, who pretend they don't know, show up occasionally. I hope your sign works for you.
