Picture perfect present!

Chris and I got some really awesome and thoughtful Christmas gifts this year, like this ladder that I recently posted about from my brother and sister-in-law.
We also were given this framed drawing of our new home from my sister and brother-in-law-to-be:

The frame was originally black but was painted and distressed with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint: Paris Grey.

There she is, picket fence and all!

After receiving this gift, I got to thinking about other gift ideas for new homeowners, like this personalized city and state pillow:

Red Envelope

Another idea is this self-inking address stamp...

The Yellow Note

or this initial door mat:


I also think this book would make a great gift in a basket with a starter tool-kit and bottle of champagne:

Uncommon Goods

Thanks Jamie & Brad for a great gift that I'm sure will be hanging in our house for a very long time!
