cottage house numbers

Do you remember the scene from "A Christmas Story" where Ralph is waiting and checking the mail box everyday for his secret decoder pen?  Well, that was me, anxiously awaiting our new house numbers!!

A few weeks ago, I won a Ramsign giveaway from Melanie at the Frosted Gardner!  You have no idea how excited I was. 

Last summer I wrote about wanting to change out our house numbers.  I wanted a more cottage-y look, not the cheap plastic ones the builder had put on.  (Not to mention I didn't really care for the placement...)

-if you have the house numbers we had and love them, I mean no offense. They're just not my style.

Friday afternoon, before the long weekend, they arrived. 

Let me just tell you- Ramsign was awesome.  They were great at communicating through the entire ordering process, and I am so pleased with the product.  I am saying this purely from my own experience- no goading or requests for any kind of a product review from the company.

Here was the before:

Installing in the new spot....

And after. 
 I feel like this is so much more 'us'.  I want every part of our house to make us smile and feel proud.
...Now if we could just switch out those light fixtures....

Thank you so much Melanie and Ramsign for the fantastic giveaway!  I love it!
