We need to talk. One on two. We have an opportunity for you to invest in good times. It’s not a bad thing to do.
There’s this situation, you see. It’s the historic Tennessee Brewery, at 495 Tennessee Street in Memphis, TN. It’s this beautiful old building. Seriously, just gorgeous.
If no one buys it, they’re going to tear it down at the end of this summer. Tear it down as in close it—forever.
I know. Harsh. But we needed to get your attention. I mean just LOOK at this amazing piece of architecture.
We told you.
We’re writing you because we know you love Memphis. It’s your city, man. You love this town. I mean, there’s a freakin day named after you here. JT day. You may have heard of it.
But, we’re not going to sugar coat this. This building is stupid expensive. Like, millions of dollars…

Kristen wrote her first contribution for our new blog over at get ARCH’d. Be sure to hop on over if you’re in the mood to see some great photography from her latest engagement session. We’ll be posting over there from now on, so skip over and follow the new blog to stay updated! Thanks, Lindsey
You’ve heard from Lindsey, now it’s my turn.
Welcome to my first blog post on ARCH’d. But don’t worry. Lindsey proofread everything. While my math skills aren’t exactly what you would call strong, hopefully my photography makes up for it. Here’s a sneak peak into my latest engagement photography session.
I met Molly when I was a junior in college and she was a member of our newest pledge class in Kappa Delta. Serving as the vice president membership, recruiting an awesome pledge class was especially important to me that year. Molly and I became instant friends, her sense of humor complimenting mine. I even understand how she doesn’t like having “special powers” (sorry for the inside joke).
I remember when Molly first told me about her (now) fiance Scamp following their trip to the OC. Molly and I binge-watched
thirty 5 seasons of the addictive CW show in…

Tis the season to get ARCH’d. Holiday decor is now up on the new blog!
Same writing. Same artwork. Just a new blog. Head on over!
Thanksgiving is two weeks away.
15 days, to be exact. Which means, in 16 days you’re allowed to start decorating your home for Christmas. If you happen to start hanging the mistletoe before then, just know you are one of the houses I will be side-eyeing and openly judging as I drive by and see your house lit up in the dark by twinkling lights before I am able to enjoy my turkey and stuffing. Blasphemy.
However, you know what you ARE allowed to do before official turkey day? Stock up on holiday and Christmas home decor.
Kristen and I were forced to re-stock up last holiday season—our second Christmas in our century old Cooper Young house—due to a slight critter issue. When we first moved in, we were super excited our house featured both a basement AND attic. Then I remembered I hate creepy midtown basements, thanks to my old…

You may have noticed the absence of blog posts here recently. No, I haven’t just been lazy. My sister and I have been working hard to combine our two Etsy shops and blogs into one—get ARCH’d.
I wanted to thank you all for reading and following lindseyEarcher over the past few years and I hope you will continue to read all about my art, graphic design, etsy shop, writing, etc. over at the new blog. Plus, you’ll have the added bonus of my equally amazing sister, Kristen, there to keep you company whenever I’m slacking.
Click over and #getARCHd at the new site!
Welcome to the first official post here at get ARCH’d.
Sidenote: while the blog may be bare bones at the moment, we’ll be adding pages and features to flesh out the site throughout this first month. Come back often. We are Kristen (my sister) and Lindsey (me) Archer. For the quick about us version, visit our about page here.
Kristen and I are proud to announce the recent purchase of one of our first power tools. Behold the miter saw:
Technically, we also own a power drill and power sander. But we
stole borrowed the power drill from our Dad’s garage, and the worst a power sander is going to do is give you a slight friction burn (that is a total guess and therefore highly inaccurate assessment). So, those don’t count.
Did you know there are three different types of saws included in Forbes’ list of the 10 Most…

While I’m busy finishing up my Top 10 Books of 2012 post, head on over to my sister’s blog for 10 Ways to Make Valentine’s Day Meaningful. If you’d like to stray from the overplayed cliche of flowers and candy this year, Kristen’s compiled a great list of ideas for unique Valentine’s Day gifts.
Flowers die. Candy gets digested. Teddy bears should be given to children.
Valentine’s Day can be more stressful than it is worth. The pressure to find the perfect gift that says “I love you” is multiplied by 10 on this one day of the year. Valentine’s Day is silly when you really stop to think about it but it also gives you the opportunity to score some BIG points with the significant other. Single? Who cares. Exchange gifts with your best friends who are also single. You love them, right? The ten ideas below scream “I love you” louder than flowers, candy and teddy bears. I promise.
Do you remember the place you met your significant other? No? Well then figure it out – trust me. Yes? Take a photo of it (even iPhone photos work most of the time as seen in the photo below) and send it…
