Prints again!

18 Feb

I have purged Etsy once again for neat looking things to put up on a wall. Some of course are the typical helvitica type saying posters-‘I think you are more beautiful than Ariel’ or ‘Dont stop believing.’ Which we will all have to deal with. Because some of those posters are yes, trite, but then still very nice to look at and they help us feel a lil’ better about ourselves because they tell us things that are not true. (jk I think all of you are better than Ariel.)

This one is going on my ‘one day I’ll be a billionaire list’.

Anasee has a bunch of cute Linocut block prints of adurable lil’ creatures.


Cabinet of treasures has a bunch of different earthy(/sciencey?) prints for sale. Check out the shop and see if there is something in particular that you like.

I know, I know…a map. Seller states though that this map is a 1932 map of the olympic games for LA. That is pretty sweet. PS. Who really has any other use for a map these days besides them looking really sweet in your dining room/hallway?



This is the new new ‘God bless this mess’ cross stitch.


This one is pretty sweet. I ama quote the seller because I dont want to mess any of her words up:

“A beautiful print made using antique letterpress blocks. Each letter is individualy hand pressed onto A3 (420 x 297 mm) 230 gsm paper for a unique high quality finish every time.

As the print is made to order, special requirements and personalisations can be taken into account, such as colours letters and phrases. We can change the names in the print, change the colour to match your walls, and even add words or places, such as a special date for that truly unique gift. Please contact us with these details as soon as you have made your purchase so we can get creating for you as soon as possible!”

SOOOO many possibilities to look awesome!

I lurve the colors.



Ah hem…seller also has other cute skeleton characters like hello kitty and Betty boop. Pigpen looks pretty cool too.

It costs $10 (one hour lesson is included). Lesson is at 7pm and the band plays from 8-11pm.

Hope to see you there.
