every party needs a pooper


I finally got around to hanging up some prints that I splurged on last Thanksgiving. I had to find the perfect frames (a la Goodwill, of course.) and then you have to factor in a 3 month turn around on spray painting when sunny days are hard to come by. Then top that off with general slackerness and a lack of ability to focus (SQUIRREL!) and it brings us into March. After hanging these up, I couldn't keep my eyes off of them. They just make me happy. The green frames, the fabulous artwork....they really brighten up our family room/kitchen. And then there is Chris. I wasn't home when he met them, but rumor has it (from a very reliable source) that his reaction included a long moment of silence, followed by several complaints. We grew up singing the party pooper song to my dad and I am happy to say that I can pass that tradition on to my daughters. I did humor him and adjusted them to center them on the wall better this morning, but the majority of his complaining involved the frames and the cohesiveness with our existing home decor. I, on the other hand, think it is a perfect fit. Like I said, pure happiness every time I waltz past them.

I LOVE these prints! How did you find them? Are you a friend of the artist? I noticed she's from Prosser. Now I want to buy some! Have you seen the bookworm one and the typewriter prints? I'm trying to decide if they are too kiddy for my living room or not. I want to put some sort of typewriter themed print above my typewriter (silly, but I think it will be cute) and I'm having a hard time deciding between these or copying the pottery barn prints. Advice?

stand firm Sarah, they are just beautiful and you could use the color in there! I love that color.I went to good will and maybe I didn't spend enough time looking but I didn't see any frames I liked.

I ran across them at 30days. I just about love all of her stuff and I, too, have wanted to put a typewriter print above my typewriter. Call me silly, too. I can't find the pottery barn ones to help you choose. I got my prints during a buy 2, get 1 sale. (combined with free shipping AND she includes all sorts of fun goodies in her packaging.) It was a fun package to get!

Lia: It is that ivy color we had talked about.
