Breeding Like Hares

When I like something, I can’t help looking around for things that will match it. I’m not the most organised person but I do get comfort from things around me looking orderly and matching, maybe a little too much.

I was very pleased when we got our lovely Jon Tremain ‘Running Hare’ picture which we hung in the kitchen.

But then I started hankering after the Dish Bunny Washing Up Rack to put on the draining board underneath it.

I don’t want it to just look like a coincidence that there are two hare/rabbit things together, so the next thing I’m hankering after is this Hare Doormat by DroogHare Door Mat by Droog

The cheapest I’ve seen it in the UK is from Post Modern Designs at £89. It’s quite large, probably twice the width of a standard doormat so would be perfect in front of double doors. Hang on, we’ve got double patio doors in the kitchen! So really I need this to put across them as our normal-sized mat just isn’t up to the job. There I’ve convinced myself, now will that logic work on my husband I wonder?

For those of you not hankering after matching hares there is a similar hippo mat.

Framing Prints the ‘Eze’ Way

Getting a print you’ve been hankering after is awesome but I often leave it rolled up languishing for months while I find a frame that’s the right size or design or whilst I save up to get it professionally framed. Too mean to pay a professional and not able to find exactly what I wanted in the shops I turned to EzeFrame.

I generally avoid companies with incorrectly spelled names, even as a child ‘Toys R Us’ annoyed the hell out of me and with a backwards R! How is a child meant to learn to spell with that kind of influence?? Anyhow… it turns out EzeFrame are very good at what they do. They have a wide range of frames, mounts and glass and if your picture isn’t a standard size you can enter the dimensions on their website and they’ll custom make you a frame and mount. You can even upload an image of your picture to see how it will look in the frame before you buy it.

Their prices are really reasonable, I’ve just ordered a frame and mount for an A3 size print for a little over £13. The quality is good, it’s not quite as high as frames I’ve had done by a more expensive professional framer but once it’s on the wall the difference is unnoticeable, to me at least.

Here is the frame I chose for my ‘Running Hare’ print by Jon Tremaine, this snapshot really doesn’t do justice to his talent, his intricate drawings are amazing – go and look at them…
