One of my favorite things in my house: four numbers that I bought at the junkyard. They came off the side of a railroad switch box. Loved the "patina" of them. The 29 is my lucky number and the 50 is the year that I was born. Knew that I was MEANT to have them!
The junkyard where I bought them soon after went out of business. My smart aleck husband says it's because I bought everything! LOL
He wasn't too mad - he's the one who mounted them in the frame and painted it.
