I don’t know about you, but I go through phases of not buying anything for the walls at home or at the cottage, and then within a few days seem to acquire a number of items.
Firstly I found this bargain of a sign for our holiday cottage….. for only £3 in a sale.
My husband does not quite share my enthusiasm for all things blue/shabby, and asked helpful things like “Is it supposed to look like that?” and ” You do realise the paint is flaking off, don’t you?” To which I reply “Yes, yes, and…… yes…… before you ask….. I DO want to put it in the cottage!”
As with THIS sign, sometimes they just don’t get it, but we agree to disagree, and I hang up my signs!
The other item to arrive, after much anticipation, was my stretch canvas print from UPrint. Do you remember the giveaway I hosted here on my blog by the nice people at Online Poster Printing? Well, the winner (Lori) and I both got to chose a holiday photo to have made into a stretch canvas. It arrived this week – hurrah!
Here it is – a rather unconventional choice of summer holiday photo, but quite true to form here in N Ireland, and letting my kids play in the rain was truly one of their highlights of the entire summer!
I promise I am not just saying this (because I always give my own opinions here) but I was really impressed with the quality, color, standard of finish, and how well wrapped up and protected it was when it arrived.
If you want to know more about Online Poster Printing canvas prints or the other services offered by U Printing, be sure to check out the links. They are very supportive of the blogging community, and I have found them to be most accomodating.
What about you?
It has been a LONG and TIRING week, so looking forward to a quiet weekend. Have you any plans for the weekend? Let me know. Thanks.
