Pick a Number, Any Number

I knew exactly what I was going to create with these bright yellow aluminum number tags as soon as I spotted them.....

It's a necklace countdown.

A handful of bright yellow numbers plucked from a basket while treasure hunting at My Friends and I last month.  They were in pretty good condition and just needed a little cleaning.

Do you have a birthday on the 2nd,  3rd, or 4th?
Mine's on the 1st, but I couldn't find one #1 in the basket.

Or how about an anniversary on the 5th, 6th, or 7th?

One thing is for sure, you won't get lost in a crowd wearing one of these.
What's your lucky number?

  8. What a lovely necklace idea, and such a great way to remember a special date! Glad to hear that you enjoy gardening books--I do, too! I have several garden catalogs that I need to start going through and figure out what seeds I'll get this year. Have a great rest of your week!

  17. You always have such a creative vision for these bits and pieces! The contrast of the industrial-ish numbers with the delicate silver accents is gorgeous. :-)

    My lucky number is 8 although it has nothing to do with anything in particular such as a birthday or anniversary. Come to think of it, I'm not even sure it's lucky ... I guess I just like it.

  18. All my dates are double digit! And, don't know what my lucky # is, but yellow is a very favorite color of mine. :) These are so fun and gorgeous!

  19. I have a fondness for the number nine - no real reason. I like its shape and the sound of the way it is said in the South - with two syllables! The bright yellow would perk up a drab winter's day.

  20. I'm always amazed at what you come across and even more so by what you can do with it! Sigh. So fun to see you create.
