At Home


This great find came to me via my super lovely upstairs housemate: she bought some of these posters—hand-cut from a piece of construction paper with only an X-acto knife, and printed with vegetable-based inks on 100% Post-Consumer, Recycled Paper by a family-owned print shop in Portland, Oregon. The artist is Nikki McClure. Bargain alert: you can choose three for $30.

My groovy twentysomething pal bought a couple for the upstairs apartment, one for a housewarming gift for her sister, and the balance for wedding gifts (she’s in that summer, the one when you attend eight weddings). I got three—Congregate for the mudroom, Seal for my love of jamming and Learn for a friend’s birthday gift.

I think it’s my summer of posters as easy wall art, because I just framed a couple of exhibition posters for the downstairs bathroom, which I got from the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Again, I like that I didn’t spend much to make a room prone to steamy showers look really fun. It was so simple to perk up the space.

Sarah Werthan Buttenwieser is a writer, whose work appears in the ebook anthology Welcome to My WorldBrain Child Magazine & the Huffington Post, Babble & Bamboo Magazine amongst others. She does some blogging for Teen Life and keeps her own blog—Standing in the Shadows—at the Valley Advocate. She and her dear husband are raising four children and enduring a great deal of chaos in the relatively sleepless process.

    Lovely posters. I’ve seen 4 that I NEED myself. I love the Carle’s exhibition prints. We have a few that deserve more than the masking tape currently holding them up in Malone’s room.

    I purchased the 4 birth/mothering posters after reading ’em!
