Texas Trade Days

The idea of adding numbers to things has been around quite a while, and I love the look!

Last weekend, Wild Bill and I went to Canton Texas for "Trade Days". Trade Days are the Texas version of a big flea market in each town. 

Among other things,  I bought several wooden tags with various numbers. As soon as we got home, I quickly added them to some things in the kitchen.

A few days later Wild Bill asked me if I was "...fixing to sell some things?"

Huh? ...What? ... I wondered: why would he think that since I'd just bought some of it?

Then I looked at the counter again and...ohhhhhh..

I guess he thought I'd moved up from stickers on garage sale items!

I think these would be real easy to make. I just bought a few so I could use them as a pattern.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your visit. Hope you'll follow me to the blog parties listed below.


  1. Too funny, my husband would probably think the same thing. I love the look!

  2. I love your wooden numbers tags. I have numbers all over the house.

    My husband has given up understanding my decorating. He just walks around shaking his head. But, he loves it!

  3. Well that's hilarious and definitely something John would say LMHO.
    I love those numbered tags!!!
    have a heart filled day

  4. Love the look. I have noticed the use of numbers in home decorating these days. I just painted my kitchen floor and have thought about adding some numbers to it. The floor looks a bit plain.

  5. Those are great number tags, cleverly displayed. Thanks so much for visiting my blog recently. :)

  6. Your kitchen is so pretty! I love the color of the cabinets and your plate rack!
