16x20 hand painted canvas, original to Letter Me This. I was inspired by a phrase I found on Pinterest saying Growing up Southern is a privilege really. I added upon that and came up with this fun and unique sign. It reads: "Growing up Southern is a privilege really. It's more than where you're born, it's an idea, a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea in mason jars, college football and to turn it up before Lynyrd Skynyrd tell you to during "Sweet Home Alabama". It's being hospitable, being devoted to front porches and knowing y'all, fixin' to and might could just make sense. We love sweet talking good ol' boys and catching fireflies. It's saying 'Bless her heart' while gossiping about a tramp or an old bitty with friends you've had since grade school/ It's knowing Yonder is a direction, where to find the best fried catfish, the 'right kind' of BBQ and the coldest beer. It's knowing butter makes it better, sweetie makes it kinder, and to always say 'Thank you, you too' when someone tells you to have a blessed day."

If you would like to add or take away to the above there may be an extra $5 fee for customizing if I will have to adjust to make it all fit correctly. Convo me to see if you need a price adjustment.

Common changes that do not require extra charge are specifying the football team and changing the song title.

These are made to order and may take a while to create, depending on my current workload. Please convo me if you have time constraints so I can give an accurate timeline.



In Notes to Seller, please include:

1. what colors you'd like used in background
2. what accent color you'd like used
3. if you want ribbon added

I will create your canvas and then send a photo of the finished product for approval prior to shipment.
