vintage house numbers, digital photos, old papers
Inspired by a trip to London and Paris I became entranced with the variety of beauty of house numbers and took many pictures…I layered them with old text and added some vintage house numbers from the local junk shop. I included the age and birthdates of my children, Sherlock home’s address, and other significant number’s in my life.
