I’m a lot of talk about all the design resources I like and yet I’ve purchased from very few of these great resources to date — that’s mainly because I’ve been spending all my dough on the big stuff so the fun stuff — the design pieces and decor elements — are falling by the wayside. Anyway, I mentioned inspirational house numbers in a previous post and I’ve finally put my money where my mouth is.
I really do think curb appeal is critical and I want my place to look special so I ordered this number plate from Lucienne de Mauny. My only criticism of the site would be that they are located in the UK — just a hop, skip and a jump away and they DON’T ship to the Republic of Ireland – go figure. So I shipped it to the states thinking that my buddy, Kathy, could bring it over to me when I met up with her last month in Italy. Wouldn’t it figure that the number plate didn’t arrive in time — and was waiting for her when she got back to the U.S. Oh well…it will eventually make it my way! In the meantime, Kathy was kind enough to send me this photo of my new number plate so that I can admire it from afar.
