palindrome curb appeal

Our house hasn't had house numbers since we moved in--all we've had are decals on our mailbox. So last year Dave and I looked at every possible website we could find for house numbers. The numbers I liked best were the Neutra numbers from Design Within Reach, originally designed by architect Richard Neutra for mid-century buildings he designed. But at $50 a pop, we just couldn't stomach spending $150+ on house numbers. So we did nothing.

Recently, while at Home Depot, we found numbers very similar to the Neutra numbers, complete with the floating aspect that gives them a shadow. And they were $5 a number! Dave installed them this weekend. Here they are in the daylight and at night underneath our outside light. And yes, I love that our house number is a palindrome :)
