A Month In Numbers....

...February.. the second installment of Julie's ( Notes on Paper) Month in Numbers.
Treasure trove ..that's what I thought when I saw these white enamelled numbers in the pound shop...two for a pound , even better.
3 & 4

64 pounds spent on fabric stash, some of it to make this
3 the number of nights spent with the offspring!
1 tea towel set alight. 0 exclamation keys on my old Imperial 66 typewriter.



360 pieces of bunting...
14 *****Road ,the house we nearly bought, the least said about that the better!

1 tea towel set alight! Now that's not something you will read in anyone else's numbers. Love the enamel numbers and your typewritten text.

Fascinating set of numbers and I love the way you have photographed them. Are you doing Month in Numbers in album form? Looks great!

Great collection of numbers. I remember learning to type on a machine with no exclamation mark - apostrophe, backspace, full stop is the solution!

Great project Effie !

Andrea said...

Oh Gail - nearly bought a house! It's obviously too long since I last saw you :(

Julie Kirk said...

Goodness!! You need an exclamation mark!! Especially for when you've set a tea towel on fire!!!

I look forward to hearing the house story at some point.

And 360 pieces of bunting? Have you got repetitive strain injury? Bunting elbow?
