    Etsy Find: I Saw the Sign

    I’ve always thought a subtle neon sign can add a pop of modern to more traditional decor. I’ve just never thought I’d find a neon sign that was even remotely affordable. That was until I ran across Marcus Conrad Poston’s Etsy shop. His signs aren’t exactly cheap, but they come in under $1000 each. Above, super awesome J’adore neon sign, $650. Poston also does custom jobs. Via PoppyTalk.

    I Tried Photojojo’s Engineer Print Service

    You may have read about Photojojo’s new engineer prints. They’re 3′x4′ black and white prints on 20lb white paper that have a charming faded look. The style was made popular by photographer Debbie Carlos and have been popping up everywhere lately. In fact, I own one of her prints myself. Anyways, last week I decided to give Photojojo’s new prints a try. I love the idea of being able to display one of my own photos in such dramatic fashion, and since prints are just $25 I figured there was nothing to lose. I got the print yesterday and I have to say I’m blown away. I wasn’t able to safely flatten the print to photograph it, but here is the image I used.

    I plan to take it in to be framed this weekend. Having done this once before, I will tell you that the framing for a piece this big will run you $250-$300-ish – and that’s at a discount frame store. Personally, I think it’s totally worth it to have something so eye-catching on the wall.

    Buck Wild

    I’m a huge fan of taxidermy. But I totally get that it’s not for everyone. However, I think we can all agree that this giant elk woodcut is amazing. Mike’s Six-Point Elk Woodcut Sculpture, $500 from Nic Annette Miller.
