Picture Perfect



Have you seen these?! A fellow DS-spouse friend (who will be departing for her first post soon!) brought indie mats to my attention, and I’m so in love.Adaptation_House_indiemats_logo Adaptation_House_indiemats_2Adaptation_House_indie_mats_1

No more begging GSO or  Facilities to hang  just one more frame! These are gallery-level chic options for hanging artwork with included removable stickers or ribbon tabs. YES. One of those companies that was just made for me. At $9-15, the price is perfect, and I might even get some for L to play designer with. Right now, it’s the perfect way to hang the coffee quote I’ve been wanting in my kitchen (sadly I do not have exposed brick walls, but photoshop is a tool for dreamers…)

I purchased the 12×16 in cherry wood, with a 6×6 opening. I’ve always loved large mats around typography or small art pieces. You can buy an almost identical, high-quality print of this quote at a shop on Etsy. I created my own using the same American Typewriter typeface – the classic workhorse font made famous by Milton Glaser in the I love NY slogan of course.  Feel free to download and print my version below (fits in the 6×6 window).


But first… coffee :) with my latest snack fruit obsession, kumquats! What little discoveries have made your life better lately? What friends have shared them with you?
