Remember way back….WAY back….like March or so….I entered this killer contest by @sthrnfairytale.

I won that contest. YAY ME!


I won a 16 x 20 Canvas Print (which I upgraded to a 30×24 cuz..well, duh) by Canvas Press which then offered people a discount code of 10% off called JENN10 (YA, I totally got my OWN discount code at a REAL place!).

I’m such a BIG deal!

Well, since my house has been under construction since the day we moved in, I hadn’t haven’t wouldn’t didn’t had not (please send english teacher to help me) hung this print of AWESOME because I wanted to figure out the very best location.

I was waiting this whole time to paint the back wall of my staircase….


My mother-in-law was over the other day.

Her: why haven’t you hung that picture?

Me: Cuz the back wall of the staircase is dirty and gross and needs to be painted

Her: Hang it next to the brick fireplace.

Me: Ummm, we don’t want people to walk into our house and that be the first thing they see. Won’t people think we are dumb and arrogant??

We are certainly not pompous people who flaunt our Apple products….that often….

She INSISTED that it would look great and would NOT make us look like IDIOTS.

So, I hung it up. And I LOVE it.

It kind of looks like it was supposed to be next to the brick!




I guess it’s not the FIRST thing you will notice when you walk in the front door. Maybe that will be our garage sale tables…??? ;o)

What do you think?
