Happy Tuesday!

I've been dying to share the finished product of the ships wheel I bought Husband in Maine. He repainted it and since we could not decide on one saying we went with 4--one for each of us.

Facta Non Verba (Greye)--Action Not Words

Cave ab Homine Univslibri (Husband)--Beware of man with only one book

Veni Vidi Visa (SC)--I came I saw I shopped

Vivite Liberi Aut Morimini (Wyn)--Live free or die

Do you have a family motto?

  8. How fun to do a wheel like that - perfect. I like the top one. I haven't a family motto but will think on one now. At our school it was "Incipe" begin which always inspires me to move it, move it.

  9. That looks great!! How fun that you each came up with a saying! My hubby's motto has always been "so you're tellin me there's a chance" from the dumb and dumber movie, insert my eyeroll here :)

  11. These are fabulous! I love that you picked 4! I may have to swipe Veni Vidi Visa for a potential tomb stone engraving (which my family would never go for) but if I outlive them all I'm dong it!

  21. COOL! I saw a house once where they put words all over on the wall. "Family." "Faith." "Peace." That sort of thing. I thought that was a great idea.

  22. Ooh, love it!

    Your motto cracked me up so much, haha. Love it!

  23. How much do I love that you went with all four?! That's absolutely perfect. Your motto killed me the most because I read it, read your translation and then had to re-read :)
