Look What Came In The Mail!

Nothing brightens an icy, cold winter day than finding a parcel in the mail!

When Jaime from That's My Letter ran a contest for a Ramsign enamel house number sign, I really, really wanted to win.

Just this summer, when I was touching up the front porch paint, I realized I still had the stupid, stick on numbers that were there when I moved in.  Do you ever have something that's been there so long that you just don't see it any more?

As soon as the weather warms up enough to not turn into an icicle out there, all that is going to change.

I won!  This beauty came all the way from Denmark! ~

I wanted to see how sturdy it was before I added to my win by ordering the house name.  It's a really substantial piece of enamelware and completely surpassed my expectations.  Thanks Jaime!

How great will Kells Water look on one of these?  I could swoon at the thought!


  1. Oh you're so lucky - I've tried to win a Ramsign a few times!!!
    It's beautiful Maureen

  2. Maureen, I won one a couple years ago and love it! That was another one thing leads to another project! I ended up redoing the whole front porch...Bet you won't be able to just put up the numbers LOL!


  3. I have seen those about I love them, lucky thing. Glad you had something to chase away the winter blues xxoo

  4. Congrats! Such fun!
    Farmhouse hugs,

  5. Maureen I'm so jealous! The sign is a beauty, thank you for giving credit and your appreciation is truly heartfelt. A little piece of Europe on your front porch is a good thing!

  6. Maureen-You are the perfect person to win that sign. I am so happy for you. I think Kells Water would look SMASHING on one of those signs! xo Diana

  7. OK...I give...what is your house name?
    (Beautiful number plaque)
    Not surprised one bit that you won. :)

  8. Oh my that is gorgeous! I too have tried to win a Ramsign before but no luck! Can't wait to see the house name on a sign also.
    hugs, Linda

  9. Congratulations on winning Maureen. Looks like a nice piece. Your front porch will be stunning with it up!

  10. Such a pretty sign Maureen ... congratulations. I would love to win one too. Maybe someday. It will really dress up your porch.

  11. I have blue and white enamel house numbers...and love it. Tell us about the origin of Kells Water.

  12. I'm swooning at the name Kells Water!! How did I miss that after all this time????!!! Is their meaning behind that name? Love the letters and hope you get the name sign soon!!

  13. Stunning!! Can't wait to see it up. I know what you mean about having something there so long that you do not see it. We have a few things like that around here. Sometimes I think it is my only way of remaining sane...could mean another project if I am not careful.
