Word for Word: Quotes for Your Walls

It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes, good old fashioned text does the best job. Quotes from funny, clever people like Julia Child, Oscar Wilde and Robert Burns will give you a chuckle. Hang them up wherever you need a pick-me-up or a little kick in the behind.

Alternatively, write your own! Then, enlarge it, print it and frame it. Something your family always said or lines from a favorite book are great sources.

This collection of wall decor is printed in a variety of ways, but I have to highlight the most eco-friendly seller of the bunch. Canton Box Company (Julia Child quote) used 100% cotton canvas and water-based acrylic paint.
