Some product boasting

Last week I posted a picture of the medal display that I actually received long before I moved, but just got around to hanging on my wall since I finished painting the living room.

Lots of room for "improvement"!

I've probably got the least amount of medals of everyone I know who has medals, so I know the rest of you could use one of these suckers. It's actually much nicer than it looks from this washed-out picture I took with my phone. It's pretty substantial, heavy metal (read: shiny! We all know how I love shiny things.)

I received the hanger from Allied Medal Displays and they have a ton and a half designs to choose from, including create-your-own and different sizes for hanging different amounts of medals. Go check 'em out!

I'd also like to introduce you to another great company that I've recently stumbled upon: Tiny Prints

When I was looking for my moving announcements, I checked out a looooooottt of different companies, and this company won out, hands down (and I'm a picky graphic designer). I also ordered address labels at the same time I ordered the moving announcements. A couple days after I placed my order, I was informed by the home trust company I bought my house through, that my zip code was going to be different from what they originally told me. CRAP! I immediately contacted Tiny Prints, who informed the art department of the change, and less than a week later, I received my orders with the correct zip code on them. Now that's great customer service!

One last awesome thing:
"Sophisticated" I am not.


A friend bought me the butts from IKEA and I found the wood piece on clearance at Michael's. Because I'm cheap.

This weekend I also bought and hung curtains, using my new power drill! I planted some flowers too. This house of my own thing is pretty frickin sweet!


  1. The butts are the best! And if it makes you feel better, I only have 5 medals and no plans to do more than two races the rest of the year, so you could easily have more than me soon.

  2. When do we get to see before and after shots of the painting??

  3. Love the butts! I love my medal hanger. I put it in my bedroom so I can see it when I wake up to help motivate my butt out of bed!

  4. Did it hurt when you sold your integrity? I would think that it would sting.

  5. I never have to buy address labels. I donated to March of Dimes and they think by sending me free labels I'll donate again. Not. That's my strategy because I am cheap.

    When you say "received" medal hanger did you get it free? I need a bigger one! We should swap!

  6. I dream of the day I can buy address labels. I guess technically that day is here, since we are going on four years in this apartment. I want a medal hanger! I can't wait to see your house in person.

  7. I need one of those medal hangers so I can get all my medals out of my jewelry box and put them on display. I will have to check them out!
