Making a House a Home

We all know it takes a little something extra to make a house into a home. You can have the building or structure, but to really make it home, it needs those personal touches. Things that show your personality and style. From the furniture to decorations and home décor, your home should express who you are. Whether you live in a house or apartment by yourself or share it with a large family or roommates, there are still ways to express yourself, whether in the entire house or your own personal room.


At The Funny Sign, we know all about expressing ourselves! We love to include quirky, sarcastic, inspirational and just plain fun signs into our home design! These can definitely tell visitors to your home more about your personality, likes and interests.


In addition to the visual things we see in a home, the smells and scents in our house also make it feel familiar and comfortable. Whether it’s the smell of freshly baked cookies or clean laundry coming out of the dryer, every home and space in the home seems to have a familiar scent that relaxes the senses.


A way to keep those familiar smells in your home is with scented candles. One specific brand of candles that we love and offer through our sister store are Milkhouse Candles. These candles are made from natural soy wax and beeswax, providing a clean fragrance that does not emit toxins often associated with traditional paraffin candles.


The founders of Milkhouse Candles understand the significance of our sense of smell and how a scent can trigger memories of other places or times. They have spent a great deal of time researching each of their many fragrances to make sure it adequately represents its name.

Citrus Lavendar Milkhouse CandleMilkhouse has candles representing several categories, including different seasons, foods and drinks, flowers, woods and more. You are sure to find one (or many) scents that will help you feel at home.


Here are just a few examples of Milkhouse Candle scents:

  • Eucalyptus Lavender
  • Cranberry Amaretto
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Cabin Fever
  • Barn Dance
  • Sticky Buns


Perhaps the most fitting candle is “Welcome Home.” This fragrance includes warm hearth fires and fresh baked goodies from the oven. It is sweet, spicy, fruity and delicious! Burning this soy candle in your house is sure to make it smell like home!

Sarcasm Makes You Smarter? Yeah, Right.

Can sarcasm make you smarter and a better problem-solver? Scientists seem to think so! Research suggests that when you hear sarcasm, your brain has to work harder to understand it. And this extra work helps us solve problems more creatively and helps us think on our feet better.

Sarcasm is a way to say what you mean by saying the opposite. It’s often seen as a gentler and funnier way to make fun of someone or to convey a point you are trying to make. But no matter what way you use it, sarcasm can be one of the most amusing forms of humor.

So why not make yourself just a bit sharper and smarter by buying one of our Primitives by Kathy Sarcastic Box Signs? You’ll be sure to find one that not only makes you smarter, it’ll make you chuckle too!

One of the funniest Primitives by Kathy Sarcastic Box Signs we sell is this gem right here:

This is a hilarious way to tell someone that you think they are wrong! This wisecrack is sure to delight the recipient or, if it’s a gift for yourself, it’s sure to make your guests laugh when they see it.

Primitives by Kathy Sarcastic Box Signs also have a great comeback to someone who is in a grumpy mood. If you’re dealing with a Gloomy Gus and need a funny way to lighten the mood, this one might do the trick:

These signs can also be a sarcastic reminder to your family that they need to do their own chores and not expect you to clean up after them! Sometimes, a little humor can go a long way.

Pets are Part of the Family: Why We Love Our Furry Friends

About 1/3 of the population here in the United States owns a pet, and for good reason! We here at The Funny Sign love our furry friends and we celebrate them with Primitives by Kathy Dog and Cat Signs. Here are a few reasons so many of us own pets and why they are good for us.

Did you know that having a pet can actually decrease your kids’ risk of developing allergies by as much as 33%? Studies show that children who are exposed to animals at a young age will generally develop stronger immune systems.

Pets are also a great way to meet other people and develop a sense of friendship and community with fellow pet owners. It’s a common bond that many people share, and it can help break the ice when it comes to social interaction. You can meet fellow pet lovers online, at training classes, in the dog park and in many other locations! (One of these Primitives by Kathy Dog and Cat Signs reminds everyone that when you own a pet, your heart belongs to them!)

Pets are good for your heart too! Studies show that owning a pet is good for your overall heart health. Pet owners have lower cholesterol levels, as well as lower blood pressure, than non-pet owners. This can help reduce the risk of having a heart attack in the future. (We think one of these Primitives by Kathy Dog and Cat Signs is a great way to remember that loving our pets is good for our heart!)

Dogs are great for your overall physical health. People who regularly walk their dogs have less of a chance of being obese. And that means fewer health problems overall for those lucky folks! Pets also lower your likelihood of being depressed. They can give you a sense of love and purpose, and they are also great to help you feel like you have a bond with another living creature. (Here is yet another one of our Primitives by Kathy Dog and Cat Signs that seems appropriate!)
