win over

….and the winner is “A Gift Wrapped Life”
Firstly, the “potager garden artwork” that I posted yesterday goes to the randomly selected winner- “A gift wrapped life” – most deservedly so, since this summer, her garden has been demolished by a street wide debacle, otherwise known as construction.

 Secondly, what would it take to win you over?  
A lush garden of earthly delights?
(The above illustration belongs to a gentleman with a green thumb for the garden and home.
Win me over and tell me who?  His heavenly garden transformation has been the envy of many.)

Perhaps a wheelbarrow of freshly laundered faded florals to lay down in the grass with the one you love.  A picnic basket of some fresh strawberries, fromage, a crusty bit of bread and a little wine….

and then after you wake up from an afternoon dream, you could skinny dip here…
or you could just unwrap all those glorious boxes that Sande tempts us with!
Congrats to Sande and I now have the challenge of wrapping my framed work of art to send to a wrapper extraordinaire!
Thanks to each of you for your comments!
You have no idea as to how they win me over and how full of gratitude I am to each of you!

potager garden-giveaway

pve design artwork-cottage with potager garden
A “potager garden” is one that is traditionally located outside the kitchen full of non-edible and edible flowers and herbs.  This lovely cottage has a small but plentiful garden, full of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Do you have an herb garden? What “herb” or “spice” do you find yourself using “thyme” and again?  (sorry, I could not resist the play on words)

Leave me a comment by mid-nite tonight and I shall randomly select a winner and send this little work of art, matted and framed to you.  Surely this will add a bit of spice to your wall!

mushroom

“Mushroom Study” – by Georgia Mars 2009

I “won” this lovely work of art of a splendid mushroom. We have had so much rain, and there are many mushrooms I spot by the base of trees or in shady areas. 

                     One of my favorite recipes includes mushrooms.

posh paper

If you have a fetish for posh paper then allow me to invite  you to Real Card Studio.  She also has an Exceptionally Inviting blog. 

I love really nice paper letter-press and love sending notes and packages.  Heather was wonderful to work with, and I could not choose one, so I have a nice wardrobe of personal note cards.
Did I mention that as much as I love clean fonts, I also love frilly elegant script.
I think there is room for both and Heather made it easy for me to fall in love with these real cards, real fast!  Do you have a penchant for personalized paper.  If you do, then Heather is your go-to-gal right here.

Surely, Shandells has something to “strike your fancy”  I hope you find a hot match for your hearth!
