a giveaway AND a new house


 I'm happy to share a couple of things with you all today.  First up is a GIVEAWAY!  The fabulous folks at Ramsign contacted me about hosting a giveway and of course I jumped right on that offer... some lucky winner is going to have one of these fabulous house number signs of their very own.

And it's going to be an easy to enter one.... Just head on over to their website and take a look... then come back and leave a comment here, on this post, telling me which one is YOUR favorite.  You don't have to be a follower (although I'd love to have you!), but be sure I can contact you if you're the winner!

And while you're out and about, perhaps you would like to check out their Facebook page as well?

 In case you were wondering, and I KNOW you are, my personal favorite is the Lighthouse series... something about that red lettering!


Again, the rules are easy... any house number sign (1 to 5 digits) and leave a comment on THIS post.  Doesn't get any easier than that!  The deadline is one week from today (February 6th) but don't delay!

And the new house teaser? With this giveaway being "house related" and all about sprucing up your home, well I thought it was time to tell you what is in the works around Red Gate Farm... a new house!  Nope, we're not moving but we did purchase another house to fix up and rent.  You may remember the Peach Palace?  Well now I give you (drum roll)......  Kermit's Kastle!

It might not actually be a Kermit green in color but ya gotta work with what you have!  Hopefully this project will be a bit quicker than the 5 months at the Peach Palace, but we'll have to see.  This beauty is located in the same little town as the Peach Palace and was built around 1915.  I'll be sure to share some more photos as the project progresses.

Wishing you luck in the Ramsign giveaway....  as long as you wish me luck with Kermit's Kastle!

  2. What a great giveaway..how nice that they asked you to do this. I liked the Highlander Oval...it was the only one that would hold all 5 of our numbers.

    Good luck with your new venture, it will be fun to follow along with your Kermit Kastle project. xo
