A Bushel and a Peck

"I love you, a bushel & a peck." I grew up with my mom singing me this song, and since I had babies of my own, I have been singing it to them.  So one day, it hit me that I just had to make a sign with the words.   I did it very similar to how I did my spring board.  I used a piece of wood from Ikea's "as is" section (gotta love the cheap stuff there).  Painted a little grey, then a little pink.  I love how it turned out.  And, I LOVE that it reminds me of my childhood!


  1. I've never heard this song before - love the sign!
    Just stopped by to let you know that I featured your carrot bags on my round tuit post this week!
    Thanks again for linking up! Hope you have a great week!

  2. My mother-in-law sang this to my daughter (her very first grandchild) the day she was born, I had never heard it before...still makes me tear up when I think about it. What a beautiful sign, I may have to make one for her, thanks for sharing!

  3. HI Jenn~ How did you paint the letters? Freehand?

    1. I used the same method in this tutorial:
      Hopefully that helps! The "I LOVE YOU a bushel & a peck" was a bit time-consuming to paint, but so worth it!
