My First ETSY Purchase!

Although I'm supposed to be saving my money for my Chicago trip this week, I couldn't help but splurge a little and buy this lovely 8x10 print from OrangeBeautiful. (All thanks to 100 Percent Cottam who blogged about it first by the way.) :)

I actually bought it in that tan color seen in the picture also. Although I'm a fan of the white, I thought the tan would look really good in a black frame with a nice white mat around it. I could be wrong, but we'll see. Of course I could have gone with any one of the other colors, but I figured the tan would go better with my home decor. My apartment isn't modern enough yet to be throwing in bright aquas and hot pinks at the moment. Maybe one day...

So I'll add this print to the collection of prints I need to get professionally framed. I attempted once to mat and frame a print on my own, and it just turned out all wrong. So i think with important things like this, I will go the professional route. I'll be sure to post pictures up of the final product.

Here is the amazing print my sister gave me for Christmas that I still haven't managed to get matted and framed yet. That's why I said I'd add the above to my 'collection'. :)

The lovely print is called Pistachio Ice Cream and is by Vanessa Tam. You can find it and other great prints at Thumbtack Press.

God...I love art! :)
