Tink's post made me want to look into my Villains print a little more.
The piece is titled "Villains" (how original!) by Robert de Michiell. It is a serigraph on white paper. Hand signed and numbered by the artist and is numbered 110/150.
The artist also had a Pincocchio piece that I now want.... here's a link to look at that one.

I'm glad you didn't mind that I posted all that. It's just something that people don't tend to know a lot about and framing is an expensive business. I hate to hear about people being who'd been blindsided and totally overcharged or who'd done something to a piece they'd had that essentially ruined it.

I appreciated the info! On my back burner is getting prints of something-or-other to decorate my still mostly blank walls. I'd planned to probably do the framing myself or take them to someplace like Michael's, but now whenever I get said prints, I'll have an idea of what is and is not appropriate.

All is well now....we've been busy getting the house and yard ready for our annual cook-out on Saturday. Have a great weekend everyone!
Glad to hear you are oK minus the suprise in your drive....and that your house sustained no damage! Hope your cookout was dry and a success!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful artwork. They are so unique and nice. I will have to take time to stare at them some more!

PS we have a Mickey Mouse bathroom too for the kids...just awaiting a wallpaper chair-rail border, my attempts at doing a sponge paint border failed too many times.

Oh and I don't know if I ever said but your trip planning charts and stuff were great...I must really look into UG and touring plans for the next one!

I didn't mind at all. Sharing info is the best way to learn something new!

The cook-out went well....no rain! We only had 20 people show up this year which was a bit disappointing but I was able to chat with my friends more because of it.

DIS Disney mail

I got DIS Disney mail yesterday!!!!! Scrappie-Do was kind enough to collect park maps and times guides for me during her recent trip. I'm planning a craft project with them....and yes I will post pictures of it when it's done. Included with the park maps that Scrappie-Do sent was a copy of the brochure for kids under 5 which I had never seen before. I'm going to go thru it and make sure I haven't missed any toddler friendly attractions for DS. Thanks again Scrappie!

CM vs. 1900 PF

I'm still tweaking my dining plans....

Which one would you pick for dinner: Chef Mickey's or 1900 Park Fare ?? and Why? and do you have food porn for either??

Chef Mickey's is on the top of my potential ADR list for the next trip. The boys haven't met the big cheese yet.

We had dinner at Chef Mickey's in January. The food was good. Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Mnnie, and Pluto were there. It's a fun atmosphere.

We had breakfast at 1900 Park Fare and loved it. We're doing dinner there on the next trip. I believe Cindy, her prince, and the stepsisters make appearances at dinner. The breakfast cast includes Mary Poppins, Alice, Mad Hatter, Tigger, and Pooh.

I would go with Chef Mickey's. It's just so much fun! But if you want a more subdued dinner, go with 1900 Park Fare. I guess I wasn't much help

If I were you, I'd do Chef Mickey's 1) because you have a boy 2) more standard food for a toddler 3) characters will probably be more fun for DS 4) your DS loves MICKEY!

If I were me, I'd do both...which is exactly what I'm planning to do.
