Fit for Framing

Check out this sampling of gift wrap sheets from Cavallini. They are so lovely and perfect for framing. At $3.15 (!!) per sheet, you could do a lot of inexpensive decorating with them. I picked up a few while in Chicago at a delightful shop called P.O.S.H. (more on it later!) and currently have the butterfly print framed and sitting on my buffet.

what a wonderful idea! i've been searching ebay & online for some vintage-esque prints for framing - like the butterfly and anatomy ones you have pictured here...and maybe some botanical-ish ones. this may do the trick...though i need a really large one. thanks for sharing - i'll definitely check it out!

I know what you mean about wanting something larger. I was thinking though that they would look good in a grid of 4, or 2 side by side.

had to share this with you - i was downtown today and stopped in at this bookstore i always visit after i get my hair done..at any rate they had their calendars out and i noticed some beautiful large ones that looked like vintage prints - i thought, i could easily frame those..that's 12 pictures for $25, so i picked one & brought it home...eager to see if the maker carried more but with different images (butterflies etc) i checked the back of the calendar to see who it was and - lo and behold it's cavallini! i thought it was such a coincidence since i just read about their beautiful papers on your blog - check out cavallini.com and you can find large ones - the calendar i bought is 13x19 (the bon voyage one).

Thanks for telling me that! I had a similar experience this weekend. Philly just opened a new Blik art supply store, which I had never been to before. As I was exploring, I found all kinds of wonderful things...like a huge selection of Cavallini papers. They even had the calendars you are talking about, though I was so overwhelmed by all the cool stuff, I didn't really look at them closely. I will have to go back and check them out. I'm always looking for interesting things to frame!
