Life-Sized Super Motel 8 Postcard


The other day, Haley, and her boyfriend, and I went out to celebrate Haley’s birthday.

We started off the celebration in our neighborhood by grabbing a bite to eat. However, as we were walking to our destination, we passed by one of the local thrift stores and saw this bad boy in the window.

I knew that I really shouldn't buy it but I wanted it so badly. Because it is essentially an oversized postcard! I’ve been collecting postcards from all over the world since I was ten years old.

The next morning, I walked over there and purchased it. I didn't realize that it was 1/2 the size of myself until the man took it down from the window. If I turn it on it's side, it's 3/4 of my height!

It's a framed canvas print from what I'm assuming was a Motel 8 in Dwight, Illinois. I didn’t know there was a place in Illinois named Dwight. However, I looked it up and discovered it is roughly 1.5 hours away from Chicago (with no traffic).

Now to figure out how to hang this monster...
