Growing up, I lived at
414 Westbrook Drive...


It still looks pretty much the same today...

My friend Peggy, owner of A Corner Cottage...

Lived down the street on Parkway Street...

My dear college friends visited last week-end...
I asked them if they remembered their first address???
Sure, enough...
24 PineHurst Street
2125 Edgehill Road
I have had these iron numbers for over a year...

That has seen them has said...
House Numbers...
I couldn't figure out what to do with them...
I remembered a multi-dwelling mailbox that I had acquired...


It has been stashed away in the barn...
Waiting for its transformation...


Can you remember your first address???

Blessings, Becky,,,,,,,

  1. What a wonderful use for the numbers. I love your mailbox and could think of so many ways to use it around here. Only remember the street of my first address because I was only four when we moved….I remember most all of them since then and it’s been many, many moons.

  2. I love it! It’s like they were made for each other!

  3. What a great vintage treasure! The numbers look perfect on it! Coming over from Between Naps on the Porch. =)


  4. Great Find and addition. I wonder what i would do with that…hmmmm? and yes, I lived there for 21 years so there’s no way i could forget.

  5. Great use for the numbers, and love that mailbox, reminds me of one that was at my first apartment! My first address was 12353 South Princeton! Even remember my phone number.
