New Art...

Wouldn't it be nice if I made it? Alas, I didn't. I saw these
boston nieghborhood poster

awesome city map prints from Ork Posters FOR-ever ago! I thought they were so cool and loved the various colors and the price! We thought about getting the Boston, DC and NY posters for our basement, but never got around to doing it amidst all the other things going on around here!

I decided that we could get my brother one for Christmas - he lives in Boston now and I knew he would love the red one. Little did I know, he was getting one for us as well. He bought us the Washington, DC poster in black. We loved it, but it sat rolled up in the basement family room for a long time. To be fair, I had bought a frame a Ikea a while back, but it wasn't the right size. Finally, I got a frame from Target and we hung it this past weekend. Here are some pics.

I love looking at all of the little neighborhoods that always seemed to allude me in the past! The room is coming together, although isn't QUITE where we would like it to be. I am working on a fun little furniture piece for down there. More on that in a week or so!


  1. Oh I really like it! How have I never seen those before?....I would love to have the DC one as well since I was born there:)
