New prints for the New House

We are slowly moving our stuff to the new house. Hopefully, by next weekend, all we’ll have left is furniture, so moving should go quickly and then we can move on to the pizza and beer portion of Moving Day. Pizza and beer are essential if you are moving. It’s like the light at the end of the tunnel for everyone. Also, it helps people to forget the blood sweat and tears associated with moving so that they will help you again the next time you move.

Speaking of moving, we bought a few prints from Etsy for the new house! You honestly cannot get a better deal anywhere else for quirky, unique artwork.  Here is my advice for searching for prints on etsy: just go with what you like.  I was an art student in college and can sometimes get so hung up on technique and meaning that I stop actually enjoying the artwork, which is a real shame.  So, last night, I just clicked “add to cart” whenever something struck my fancy, and this is what we ended up with:

It’s Dolly Parton!!  To David, Dolly is every bit as magical as unicorns, rainbows, and Gandalf combined.  This is no exaggeration.  To me, she seems like such a nice lady, so I’m happy to have her picture on the wall.  (Aside: It’s her birthday today!  Happy birthday Ms. Dolly!)

Of course, a bike.  David rides daily and I’m surprised how much The Bicycle has infiltrated our lives.  I don’t mind, though.

And finally,

This is a smallish letterpress print called Garden that I immediately liked.  On a related note, we’ve already chosen a place for a modest kitchen garden in the backyard of the new house!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    Okay…I’m all caught up on the blog. The whipped cream looks great, does it contain sugar and if not what does it add the coffee. I don’t know if I could drink my coffee naked (no additives). The Parton Print is a little too cotton candy for my taste but I’m sure you’ll make it look fab. Maybe we’ll come down in a few weeks when you are all settled in.

    Okay, good, so now you don’t suck as a mom. The whipped cream absolutely contains sugar (and a touch of cinnamon) and I don’t usually put it in my coffee, it goes in hot chocolate.

    Dolly could not be portrayed any other way besides cotton candy. I’m not sure where we’ll put her yet. It would be lovely to see you guys in February, let’s make a plan!

    Thou shall not speak ill of Dolly….

    Taht is rule number 1.
    You should now have to listen to Dolly’s greatest hits all day to make a penance
