MY LOVE OF NUMBERS!
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!
