What we're looking at now.


Watch Home Town on HGTV, Tonight at 10p|9c One day I got a phone call from a Mississippi area code. I picked it up. "Hello?" "Hey, it's Ben." "Okay..." "Ben Napier. Erin's husband. From Mississippi. What you doin'?" Man, what was I doing? I don't even know. And what did we talk about? I can't remember. What I can remember is that this guy from the Methodist church in Laurel, Mississippi was just calling me because sending an email seemed so impersonal. And that left an impression on me. That was probably four or five years ago. When the Napiers were just supporters of our small business and buying up all our things that we made for Mississippi and telling their friends about us. That was back when @erinapier bought Ben one of our bowties even though it was too small for his neck because she's a giant of thoughtfulness and he's a giant of a man. That was back when she sent a picture of one of one of prints in their house and then I found out they HAD THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN ALL OF MISSISSIPPI. That was before they made a show for HGTV and before @scotsman.co and before they built @laurelmercantile downtown and before they were the talk of the South. Since then, we've become friends. We've presented together at our alma mater (Hell Yes, Damn Right!) and we've made a couple of different prints together and I'm just pleased as can be they are the folks who were called to represent a misunderstood state to the nation, and a living Savior to the broken, and a picture of sacrificial love to the world. So, hey, tonight. What're you doin'? Wherever you are, turn your TV to @HGTV at 10p|9c. That's what you're doin'. #hgtvhometown #printsgoinghome
