Retro Signs for Home Decor

One of the easiest ways to change the decor of any room is to change the accessories and wall art. Sometimes just changing the wall art alone can do the job.

For instance, if you want to change your bathroom from a modern look to a retro look, removing the modern artwork and replacing it with retro signs like the one pictured here, Mermaid Bath Salts, is a fast and easy way to do so.

Mermaid Bath Salts Metal SignMermaid Bath Salts Metal Sign

This type of sign has a retro image and is painted on a metal sheet just like signs used to be years ago. If you are worried about dampness rusting the sign, you can spray paint it with a clear Krylon spray paint. Clear Krylon comes in a can and is easily applied to any metal surface. It also works to protect the finish of metal jewelry.

Dragonfly facts

  • Dragonflies are insect who belong to the order Odonata. Experts divide them into three sub-species: the largest true dragonflies called Anisoptera, the smaller damselfly called Zygoptera and Anisozygoptera which seems to be a combination of the first two.
  • They are easily recognisable as having large eyes, small antennae, slim segmented bodies, and 4 thin membranous wing in sets of 2. In dragonflies the rear pair of wings become broader at the base. Damselfly wings are all the same size.
  • Dragonfly eyes are set together close to the top of the head and they can see all around them. Damselflies eyes are situated slightly more to each side of the head.
  • They can vary in size from around 1 inch to 6 inches in some species.
  • So far something like 5680 different species of dragonfly have been recorded world-wide.
  • Dragonfly eyes are multifaceted. This means they can see in every direction - so they sense even tiny movements - all the better for hunting prey.
  • They eat mosquitos and other pests which makes them a great addition to your garden. Some people such as the Burmese, regularly release dragonfly nymphs into local water to keep down the population of mosquitoes.
  • The twin sets of wings gives the dragonflies the ability to fly in all sort of ways. They can hoover, fly fast or slow, even loop the loop. Their flying ability is one of the reasons they are so much fun to watch.
