Today's post is the 224th post on My French Corner. There is nothing special about the number, but I wanted to tie this post to a special giveaway.
A few months ago I purchased several of these French enameled house number plaques; if you've visited France you'll immediately recognize the distinct white numbers and dark blue enamel background. The plaques are authentic--and used--as witnessed by their gentle wear (you can click on the pic for a closer look). I plan on using them in my new house, perhaps as a kitchen backsplash, or over the doorways? Ah, je ne sais pas!
I love these plaques and wanted to share them with you. So to celebrate my 224th post, I am giving away house number 224. To enter, all you have to do is write about how you would use this fun decorative piece. I'll randomly select a winner and announce it next Wednesday, July 14, Bastille Day!
