Desperado Decorating

Thursday, January 5, 2012

Since this might get me in trouble, here are a few things you should know:

1. John and I took a photography course together in college.

2. Our maturity level has remained relatively static since then.

3. I never inhaled.

So yesterday I found an old photo from that course that used to hang in our living room - much to the consternation or delight of our friends, depending on their taste - and decided it needed to be reintroduced to our decor.

As luck would have it, I also found one of those sappy printed word frames from Ross tucked away in my stash. I have no idea why I bought it, but I quickly realized this was a match made in heaven.

Assuming heaven is really snarky.


Hey, at least it makes me laugh. ;)

  1. Oh, that's BRILLIANT, Jen! (I hope Heaven is a little snarky. I intend to go there one day, and I really, really want to fit in.)

  7. What does it mean, the photo? Wait... Are you about to be shot?!?!? Are you at the business end of a firing squad?

  8. This is a funny, snarky pictorial of your marriage and working style.
    There is no need to change excpet maybe to steampunk the frame a bit more....

  9. That is greatness! LOL! I wish I had had some fellow snarky classmates like you guys when I took photography back in college!

    Sometimes I miss the days before digital - the dark room developing was so much fun!

  10. I loved the darkroom too! I can even smell the chemicals just thinking about that time. Awesome pic, need to steampunk up the frame some more, I'm sure you will!

  11. LOVE IT! The sappy frame is definitely the perfect touch. I feel like I need to borrow this idea for a photo of my sister and I. Would make the perfect mothers day gift ;) My mom is cool like that.

  12. Totally shoulda been your engagement photo.

  13. Well, it made *me* laugh. But I'm notoriously snarky.

  15. Thank you. This is wonderful. Hehehe. Great use of a sappy Ross frame. Inspiring.

  16. I don't get it. I mean, the snarkiness kinda makes sense, but the picture itself is confusing. What is it supposed to be?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I absolutely love that! The picture, the frame, all of it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I usually find any wall with inspirational sayings annoying....
    You made it fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I loved you before this but now I have an all out girl crush on you (not in a creepy way, in an I'd love to have coffee with you way). Your snarkiness is fabulous.

  20. *SNORT* I just choked on my cheerios when I scrolled down to the photo. LOVE you guys!

  21. That is amazing! Now I know what to do for the kids' Christmas picture next year!

  23. I love this!!!!! I now want to have a pic like this of me and my Hubby to scare/delight friends and family members

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOL!! That is hilarious! Looks great in that frame, too.

  25. So awesome!

    A few years ago, I found a picture of my mom in all her 70's caftan and wig glory holding a sign that says "A friend with weed is a friend indeed". I have never seen her get so awkward and defensive in my life. It was a riot!

  26. Takes me back to my high school photography days. Thing is I still have a darkroom. Nothing happens in it anymore since Kodak has pretty much rolled over. I have a 16x20 print processor that is like an albatross around my neck. I can't give the thing away. I must admit though I am getting used to using Photoshop. Cool shots and fitting frame!

  27. I met a cool couple over the holidays who made a Christmas card with an equal bit of snark. He was hanging upside down on the front porch tangled in lights and she was dressed as a flapper watching with an expression of haughty boredom. It was the hit of the season. :)

  28. i should not be so happy for a stranger's decorating whims and quirks, BUT I LOVE THIS! looks great!

  29. This had me laughing out loud. I need something this funny on my wall.

  30. This is amazing! I have always hated those cheesy live~laugh~love posters, and it chafes every day that I have one in my kitchen because my soon-to-be mother in law bought it for my fiance. This is a thoroughly awesome and the *only* appropriate way to use something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Given those two items, I would do the same thing. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Tooo funny! Thanks for the mid-day laugh! I'll be grinning for a while over THAT one ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. And made ME laugh too. From looking at the other comments, I'd say you have a lot of fans who have an, er, interesting sense of humor . . .
    (Hooray!)
    Someday I'll have to send you a photo of my husband and me in college at a dance where you had to dress as what you thought you'd be in 20 years.
    Did I say "interesting" sense of humor?
