And the winner is...

Congratulations to BTRIE - Begin...The Rest Is Easy for winning my giveaway! You can choose the CABIN or COTTAGE print, or any other print in my ETSY shop! Just email me with your address and choice of prints! And thank you to all who entered!

The earth is, indeed, laughing in flowers... at least in my backyard. The red bee balm blossoms are gorgeous right now, and they are proving irresistable to the hummingbirds who fly overhead and spot them! I hope you all enjoy a wonderful summer day wherever you are!!!

Summer Giveaway ... Cottage or Cabin Signed Print

Summertime, and the living is easy... The kids are almost out of school and soon it will be time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the summer... (Mine are long out of school now, but I have fond memories of that 'official' start to summer, with them getting off the bus on that last day of school)... So do you have any big plans this summer?

Do you have a cottage by the sea? Or maybe a cabin in the woods?

I don't, but in my dreams I do....

By painting my dreams, I feel a wee bit closer to them...

I'd live in a little cottage by the sea with weathered shingles and flowerboxes overflowing with rambling roses... And all that would separate me from the ocean? A white picket fence!

And then I think of the serenity and tranquility of escaping to a cabin in the woods...

Tall pines, moonlit nights, and watching the wildlife that I enjoy so much...

A comfy Adirondack chair nex to the lake... a bit of heaven on earth for sure! A dream for now, but who knows? Maybe some day a reality.
Leave a comment on this post, telling me which 12" x 16" print you'd like to receive... Are you a COTTAGE person? Or does a CABIN call your name? I'll pick a name on Thursday, June 24th, so the giveaway contest is open until I post a winner.
Wishing all your dreams come true for you...
