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.
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?
