Gifts from Eddie and our "Wish" Winner





So I toooootally forgot to show photos of the gifts Eddie, Jaithan and Larson Juhl sent us home with in my last post!
Duh!



We got a great canvas replica of a work of art that's displayed at the Biltmore Estate...





And two old book pages that came from a book printed in the 1800's...





Aren't they great?
I can't wait to get them all framed and hung up here at TLC!
They will be great reminders of our fun trip to the framing party.

The chair is fabulous - almost as good as having the chair itself!

This is a great reminder of what terrific wall hangings you can get from old books. It inspires me to stop by Half Price Books today and see what I can find.

I think those "parting" gifts are amazing and I can't wait to see where you put the chair print.
You will find just the perfect place.

I loved reading about your trip. You and Kevin looked like you had a fun time.
After reading how much you enjoyed Mary Kay Andrew's The Fixer Upper I read it and loved it. I have now almost read all of her books.
I think my fav so far was Savannah Breeze. Thank you for writing about the author.
Have a restful Sunday. geri.

Can't wait to see the end results of your framing projects- those botanical prints are so sweet. Makes me want to hunt for a book today (instead of going to work!)

And your gift for Eddie & Jaithan- Layla, your thoughtfulness is.... well, just so lovely. I know they loved the book!

I am loving the chair one...very fun! I can't wait to see what you do with it. I saw Eddie this summer when he came by my booth at the Kane County Flea Market. He has some great ideas- and certainly inspired many sales! I am having a giveaway so if you want to see my frenchie prize, come visit!

love your blog- here's a little tip- not sure if you've used this one- when placing a ceiling (drywall, beadboard, etc.) use a 2x4 that is cut to your ceiling height, attach another 2x4 horizontally across one end to form a T-shape. wedge the top of the T up against the ceiling material and voila! it'll hold things- or at least help hold it until you can attach it:) hope this helps! i've had back surgery and we're finishing the ceiling in our basement and it came in handy when holding heavy drywall up on the ceiling:)
