MISCELLANEOUS GOODIES:

I was recently given the opportunity to review a product with BuildASign's new site, Easy Canvas Prints.  I wanted a nice item that reflects my love of reading and history combined.  I chose this image and they turned it into this gorgeous canvas print.  The size of the print is 11 x 14 and I have an easel holder that will fit it perfectly.  It will look great on top of one of my bookshelves!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. Enjoy your books and thanks for sharing!

    The canvas print it spectacular, I'm so jealous. I already know what print I would want.
