I am so excited to say that I finally experimented with the engineering prints from Staples. In a word AWESOME!!!! Seriously the possibilities are endless! For those that are not aware, if you ever want to make a huge picture enlargement for cheap go to Staples.com, then go to engineering prints and download the photo you want to enlarge. They have three sizes to choose from 18x24 for $1.79, 24x36 $3.59, or 36x48 for $7.29. The quality isn't perfect, but I like the not perfectness of it. I already have a project I want to do using the engineering prints in the kids rooms, more on that later. The project I did yesterday was enlarging a picture I had taken of a horse down the road from us. I wasn't sure what size to get, so I ordered all three. The 36x48 is huge. I was hoping to use that one, but it was too large for above the mantel, so I went with the 24x36. I had to cut it down some to fit in the frame I have, but here it is.
Again I know I need a camera, but my Iphone will have to do for now.
So I love it. It is my favorite piece for the mantel to date.
I wanted to share some Spring touches I have added around here. I had to do something Springy because the weather here is all Winter. So over it.
I got this little bird picture at Goodwill, I thought it was cute and happy. My Sister in Law got me this sea urchin from the Nate Berkus line at Target. We don't have a Target here, so I was pretty excited. Love it!
She also got me a couple other things from Nate's line. The silver shell, and black and white picture frame. Love it all!
This is the whole mantel.
It's a little more cluttered than I usually do, but digging it!
Sorry I haven't had any posts for awhile. We went to kind of Sunny Florida for a couple of weeks.
