I Have This Number Thing Going On

Do you have a number thing going on at your nest too? I have been meaning to get around to adding some numbers on a few accessories here at Coastal Charm, but I just kept forgetting to do it...I blame it on old age...I know some of y'all can relate to my condition. Finally got some stencils from Michael's and got busy playing around with a few items...want to see what got a number added to it? we go taking a look at who the victims were. If you haven't entered my FLORA DOORA don't want to miss out on the chance to win one of these darling bags. I love my FLORA lives in Mary Claire's room and I keep two cute little white starfish in many neat ways to use these cute bags!!!
                         So glad you came
                              please come again,
                  Oh my goodness...isn't she a cutie pie?
                                  Finding her new home here on
                                top of my vintage picnic baskets!!
                   I used some ASCP (old white) that I had on hand.

Added some goodies from around
 my nest...
and this old vintage sewing box
is now something special
here in my nest!!!
Now how much did she cost me?
I think I remember paying about
50 cents for her at a garage sale
a few months ago, add some
FREE paint and a stencil that
I will be using over and over,
then she came way in under
a buck...not bad at all!!!

Does anybody remember my FREE
basket that I had planned on
turning it into a moss basket?
Well now it got a number instead!!!
Instead of painting the number, I
just outlined it and filled it in
with a very

                           You don't think that I'm stopping here
                            do you? Oh no...more victims will
                                     get numbered really

Wow, this post is perfect. I just decided to use numbers on my current project, my first time using! Your post gave me inspiration. Love those vintage picnic baskets, makes a great statement in your kitchen. Love the sewing box, that was a steal for $0.50.

Oh, I get the whole "age" thing, I'm there myself, but fighting it all the way!

FAB Linda! Absolutely Fabulous and no two comment about it. I heart your vintage sewing box and the stenciled art.

by the way, my PC had been behavin quite funny lately and i commented on Diann's blog by Linda! Ask how? This stupid pc. It auto changes tabs, u know of those super sensitive to touch idiots, so in stead of commenting at yours, Linda stayed same and rest of the comment went absolutely haywire. I didn't notice and posted it. Such a silly thing to do. I need my old dumb hit and use PC :(

Donna said...

I am going to have to jump on the number thing myself! Love all of yours!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I'm always a step behind everyone else . . . not a numbered thing in my house! Love all the things you've 'numbered' . . . love the picnic basket stack!!
