I have always loved the look of numbers. I don't know what it is but I think they look so funky and cool.

I like them old and new. A bowl full of rusted, worn numbers from houses or a pile of new ones.

I like them painted on stairs.

I like them on furniture, I love them on pillows!

I especially love them on china. These are the Anthropologie cups they put on special last summer for $3.00 (damn you Anthropologie, it's the yellow bird cup all over agian!)

There is just something about the look of numbers. I adore finding old rusted signs or house numbers and bringing them home & giving them new life.

They come in all shapes and sizes like these cute wooden numbers, they look like bingo numbers but there are no letters, maybe there are from a draw.

I even put numbers above my bedrooms. I thought it made it look like an old hotel, my friends got a kick out of it and said it looked like a house of ill-repute, just shows you where their minds are.

When I am shopping if I see anything with a number I go right to it. I picked up these gorgeous tins last summer. I got three of them for $3.00 each then later picked up some more for $1.00.

I just bought these adorble letters & number rubber stamps for PRETTY M ON ETSY I only paid $13.98. They come in their own wooden container, what a steal! She has a lot of different sets and fabulous paper items too.

And I love to do some numbering on my own, add them to anything. This is a cute idea from another blog SWEET LITTLE SMOOTHIE. She took these piggies from the dollar store and painted them with blackboard paint and added her own numbers. Adorable!

So I don't know if there is a name for it but I am a number connoisseur. I covet them in every shape and form. I like letters too but there is something about numbers, it all adds up!


  1. What a great post!! I love it all!! Ha ha, too funny, house of ill repute, love it!

  2. OMG, the bird cup! I love the pictures you posted, I wonder if I have the courage to
    put the numbers on my stairs. I like them
    but I don't know if anyone else would understand when they saw them. Hubba would
    definitely squash this idea!
    Maybe the basement stairs?

  3. Very cool pictures. They say numbers are the philosopher's lanuage. I always thought them interesting because they don't require matter to exist.

  4. Love the numbers seeyou on Saturday :)

  5. Awesome, awesome blog and I love love all your numbers. Where on earth have you found all those wonderful numbers?
