Entry Rock Gets Numbers

At the bottom of the driveway of our little farmhouse
we have needed our house numbers
I always thought this rock would be a
great place for it

~yikes the grass~

The Hubs or maybe Brother Bill
put together some numbers
a few years back
they just don't quite cut it
since our beautiful sign went up

out driving around looking at beautiful homes one night with
Brother Bill & Linda
 we saw some really pretty house numbers on stone
Brother Bill found out who made them
A local guy Josh at
look what he did for moi..
see those pegs on the back
those go into the rock
I wanted a dark hunter green to
match the sign & the roof

First Brother Bill made a template

Then he figured out where to put them

then he pulled out the big guns
put some epoxy concrete glue in the holes


Did you notice
while he was drilling
I was weeding



now I just need to get some
~not a deer favorite~
and really dress this up
the lavender that Bill & Linda planted
have done so nicely but we need some more color
and he also put up a spot light with a sensor
so at night it's
~all lit up~

Thanks again for everything
Brother Bill

I'm having a very hard time
trying to figure out what I can
possibly do to return all the favors
my in-laws have
bestowed upon us this summer
I will let you know what I come up with!
Joining Kim's party


  1. Super great idea. That rock is the greatest. Who knew you could drill in them.

  2. This looks so smart, Kathy. Great idea!

    Hope you will bring one of your projects to my first Potpourri Friday Party this week - Friday, September 2. Link-up starts on Thursday afternoon. Without a doubt, your participation will help make the party better!

  3. Looks fantastic! How sweet of your BIL!
    (I also LOVE that rooster sign!)

  4. Beautiful! I love the photo of the rock leading up the drive as well. Beautiful!

  5. Kathy, those look great. So nice to have family help you out.

  6. How cool Kathy, that was a great idea. You have such a loving family!

  7. I like those numbers a lot! Doesn't it feel good to have them up? I hope your husband is doing well/

  8. I love the color of the numbers.
