It's interesting to see how people express their individuality even in small ways. This is a nice section of house numbers. They look nice.

Thank you for noticing these, showing them to us, and also showing the standard by which to compare them.

Jacob said...

The numbers and your photo are quite creative! Makes the "regular" tile look rather plain...blah?

Here numbers are issued to homes in the country to make it easier for emergency vehicles to find places but not in the towns.

Beautiful collage. I love looking at numbers and often photograph them too. You know my preference is still for the regular tile issued by the commune.

Hello there,

Pretty! I think it's a wonderful idea with these personal number signs on the houses.

Best regards

Pretty signs, some more graphic than others. The way you have made this "postcard" is very nice.

Personally, I prefer the white and red one to the standard issue!

Each one is unique and beautiful in it's own right.

Even the regular tile is nice with the coat of arms.

Saretta said...

I like the one with the lemons the best...do you have many lemon trees in Livorno?

Per Stromsjo said...

Same word here... “comune”... "kommun".

@ Léia - I know that a friend is using some of these number to play the Superenalotto.
@ Saretta - I am afraid that the only lemon trees in Livorno are on that tile, but I know of potted plants kept here in verandas and giving good fruits.

Those are so pretty. In the USA they right it pretty too. In Bulgaria they just scribble-scrabble them with paint.

I like number 15 & 86. Tiles make everything so beautiful.

Nice "deviants". They are quite pretty, even the standard one with the coat of arms.
