Oh My Guinness!

Around the Little House there are few things we like more than scoring deals and a good pint of beer (not necessarily in that order).

So when we stumbled on vintage Guinness prints at a yards sale for $7 each (with the frame), we were pumped (mostly).  Turns out, there had been nine prints for sale at the beginning of the morning, but the owner had sold seven of them just ten minutes before we got there (dang that other yard sale we stopped at first).

Still, we loved the two remaining prints and after a few minutes of haggling (in which the owner threw in a milk crate of beer taps) we loaded them up in Dora the Explorer and took them home.

We hung them up in place of the (too small) masking tape art we made three years ago.  Remember those guys?

But after seeing the Guinness posters up there, I don’t think the canvases will ever see the wall again.

I just love them. They’re fun, vintage, and a much better size for over the couch.  We still need to anchor them to the wall so they’ll actually hang straight and not fall off the wall at 3am and scare the bejeebees out of me (I prefer to keep my bejeebees intact, thank you very much).

Just for fun, you can tell a lot about the goings on at the Little House by that first photo.

    Now I’m all excited for yard sale season to start!

    I love the prints – and they look awesome on that wall! Is it weird that I wish more ads were like that today??
