i like to decorate with numbers in my house.... the old gasoline numbers i've found inexpensively at antique sales. november 2010 issue of better homes and garden magazine home -style made simple showcases petrol numbers for $130... i know you can find them at your local antique sale for under $12.

some of my numbers have meaning behind them... like 557 was my old address to my first home i bought and  7, 3, 0 is my anniversary date.

anyone else decorate with numbers?


  1. See, I just don't know if I understand the rule about numbers and letters in your house... Is there a rule about using them too much or too many in the same room? I love letters and signs and sayings and things... in the way that you love numbers. But how much is too much?

  2. i never think to much is too much... i usually overkill :) but I also switch out my decorating a ton
