Since the big move, life has been crazy! From working, to traveling back and forth to Charlotte to pick up mini loads of stuff, and both of us getting sick (not to mention the MRSA scare) I’ve had no real play time. And now that the holidays are here, I doubt much play time is going to fall into my lap! We have picked out paint colors for the house, but haven’t started decorating- other than by hanging our new Petit Collage Prints on Wood! I so need a clone to get things done. 🙂
That is our lonely print that desperately needs some friends. If you haven’t heard of Petit Collage, you should definitely check them out for the holidays. They have some amazing handmade eco-friendly modern baby and child wall décor and accessories with a vintage twist. Though, I have loved their print so much that it ended up in our living room until I can figure out what we are doing with Ella’s room.

One of my favorites is the Prints on Wood series. The art is printed on a sheet of sustainably harvested maple veneer. The prints start out at $15 for a 8×10 matted print and go up to $65 for a 11×14 framed version. This is exceptionally priced art for the quality!The maple hardwood frames are made in the U.S.A.; handcrafted and precision sanded and joined, with a no-VOC finish. The back includes dustcover, wire hanging system and felt bumpers. They used acrylic in place of glass to keep the framed artwork shatterproof and safe for a child’s room.
I received just the matted print and I am amazed at how thin the sheet of wood is! It fit easily into a 11×14 frame. The art is very detailed and really pops off the wood. I need to add the Owl Love and Bird Love to the Tree and have a series. I love the woodland creature motif.
Petit Collage also carries amazing recycled paper posters, collages on wood, wooden mobiles, growth charts, mirrors, canvas prints, fabric wall decals, and more! They just released 2 touch and feel books on the maple veneer and Fabric Wall Decals. I LOVE the Gallery Corners ($18) where you can hang your child’s art work!
