Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign….

                                           Give-away is now closed.


Oh my- who remembers that song lyric?   *grin*

To celebrate achieving 500+ followers, I’m starting out the new year with by offering a give-away of a beautiful home address number sign from Ramsign, Europe’s premium supplier of traditional enamel signs.

                             I know you’ve all seen these before- in fact, I’ve been trying to win one for a very long time; but I still haven’t had any luck. 

But now YOU have the opportunity to win one!


          enameling process                 firing process



Ramsign manufactures these signs using a genuine glass enamel and stencil technique.

 Production takes places entirely by hand, giving the product the small inaccuracies that give the signs their unique craftsman touches.

The hand-made stenciling and glossy enamel are important characteristics of the product and the soul

of these traditionally produced enamel signs.

The winner will have the opportunity to choose a house number sign from a variety of

five different styles, from one to five digits.

(Doesn’t include name signs or address plaques)

Now I know I’m but a small fish in a big pond and 500 followers may not seem like a milestone to some of you, but I really wanted to say thanks to the

500+ people who do stop by to visit by offering

you an opportunity to win something really nice. 

It’s such fun to share and chat with my faithful readers, and I sincerely appreciate that you follow along. 



So how do you go about signing up to win this fabulous prize, you ask?

Easy peasy…  especially since the give-away is open to everyone, worldwide!

1. For following Sullivan and Murphy on Google Friend Connect, you get one entry.  Just tell me that you do in your comment.

2.  You receive a second entry by visiting Ramsign and coming back to tell me which style of sign is your favorite.

          Make it easy on me-  It isn’t necessary to leave separate comments. One comment with all info is just fine!

   GOOD LUCK!!!!




                   Give-away runs through midnight EST Saturday, January 7th.

My first time visiting here so of course I wish that I would win the drawing. What could be better. Although I might be too late since it is after midnight now and I don't know where you are located. Darn...I hope not. We just moved in to a new house in April and it would be great to have a new sign to go with it!
