About the giveaway
This weekend, it’s easier than ever for a chance to win the giveaway. This one is open to all those that comment! No DIY mandatory! So now there’s really no excuse to not go for it. 🙂

 On with the show!

I am sooo excited about this giveaway. I’ve long admired this artwork…

from one of my fav blogs, The Old Post Road!

The artist is Trish, who started painting to fill in time while the kids were in school, eventually turned her love into her profession. I’m glad you were bored, Trish. 🙂

I just can’t get enough of her artwork. The vibrant images and colours flat out make me happy. 🙂

She has a full blown Etsy shop chock full of her wonderful works of art so be sure to snoop around. She also does custom work as well.

More on Old Post Road

Trish isn’t only known for her wonderful artwork. She’s actively involved in our DIY blogging community and is one mean decorator. Check this out.

Isn’t this entry amazing?

You may remember this bedroom DIY from the window treatment SNS. Decadent.

Oh. And as if that weren’t enough, she can sew chaircovers too. LOVE the ruffle.

Trish is really good at finding a ton of inspiration photos on any given topic too so you’re missing out if you aren’t following her. 🙂

Pick your own giveaway!

And the good news is, Trish is giving away one of her infamous prints for all those that comment today. However, she wants you to pick one of your favorite prints yourself. Whoohoo!!! No DIY entry required for a chance to win, however I sure hope you throw in a DIY for the link party anyway. What would a weekend be without our beloved SNS? 🙂

  1. I love them all, but I’m pulled toward the Hayfield print. I think it is because we’re under snow, and I’m craving green. 🙂

    I’m hoping to have a project to post soon.

    Great giveaway and party!
    Thanks to you and Trish.

  2. Are you kidding me? We have to pick? That’s like saying do you like your left hand or right hand better? Her stuff is FAB!!! I love the scripture prints. I love the hayfield print. They all have a way of speaking to me. But I made some “peace on earth” Christmas ornaments this year, and I guess I would go with that. I need to show her my ornaments! She would love it….and make it look so much better!! I also loved it when she painted the Santa’s in the windows. Be still my heart! I so enjoy your blog too. I love your creativeness and the fact you stepped outside the box long ago and never went back in. Kuddo’s to you!!! Keep up the great work. Lori L

  3. Thanks for hosting this party, Where else could I find people who appreciate the fact that when I set out to bake a cake I get out my skilsaw, and drill.

    Hayfield takes me back to my days as a kid, helping my Grandpa on his farm.


  4. Hi Donna,
    Thanks for the opportunity to be in your give away this week. I hope to soon join one of your fun Saturdays here. I’m up to my elbows in paint right now, but I’ll get there.
    My fave is #1 with the bird. There are times I tell myself to just trust in God so this is perfect for me. Every little bit helps. 🙂
    Living it up at Lakewood,

  5. I love them all, but I can narrow it to two the hayfield or the rooster, if I win I will spend hours agonizing over which one I want. Too much stress to handle this early in the morning.

  6. Thank you for opening this up to non- linkers. I am still working on my projects! Just getting back into crafting again. Maybe I can link up next week.

    I love the Be Joyful Hydrangeas!

  7. I love them all, but I especially love the hydrangeas in the urn. Trish is so talented, I’ve been admiring her work for a while now. Dying to try the slip covered chair.

  8. so fun to just be able peruse, enjoy, comment & then WIN!! You make everything so much easier!

    I’d choose the Hydrangeas in Vase version as I have a vase just like that one & love it!

  9. I like the #1 and will also be back to post a link in the party. I am too busy working around the house getting my stuff done to blog now. I know, so sad. I think I might get a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be blogging.” Come to think about it, I should get a sign for my desk and at the kitchen sink as well. hehehe

  10. I love all of them! Too cute! I homeschool and one of these babies would look awesome in our classroom! I think my fav is the little birdie that has the scripture… trust in the Lord and do good!

  11. Thank you for hosting this and for introducing me to The Old Post Road. I love “Trust in the Lord” and would love to have it hanging in my bird-themed bedroom. Thanks again!

  12. Oooh, I love her work! It’s a tough choice, but I would choose “The Earth Is the Lord’s . . .”

    Thank you for the link party, once again, and for a terrific giveaway!

  13. This is my 1st time over. What a great blog. I’m following you as well.. Can’t believe I didn’t find you before. What a great giveaway.. I love Hydrangeas in Vase. I also linked to your party!!! I just love parties…

  14. I do not have anything to share this week. Nothing finished. But I do love the Humble Rooster print and would love a chance to win it. Actually it was a hard choice. Thanks!

  15. Trish’s artwork is just lovely. I’d love to have either one of these but I particularly like #4, Joyful Hydrangeas! By the way, I’ve really been enjoying your blog and plan to join in on the party fun before long! Thanks for such a neat contest. 🙂

  16. I’m happy that the fabulous giveaway is open to everyone this week, no DIY entry this week but lots of ideas and projects in the work.

    Love the Old Post Road, and my favourite, if I were to win, would be Hayfield. The colours used are so beautiful and bright and would suit our home well. Thanks to both of you for hosting and offering the giveaway.

  17. I’ve just discovered your blog, and what a neat giveaway! (and all the SNS links…wow, what a FUN way to spend this Saturday night!)

    Vistited The Old Post Road blog & shop…love #4, the Be Joyful Hydrangeas…this is one of our family’s life verses! What beautiful prints!

    Thanks for offering such a neat giveaway!


  18. I love the “Be Joyful” hydrangeas! I always try to give thanks in all circumstances because there is ALWAYS something to be grateful for!!!! (

  19. All of her prints are great. I really like the Trust in the Lord and do good print. I couldn’t believe she is from GA and so glad to have found her blog. By the way your entry is beautiful. You are one amazing and inspiring lady! Jackie

  20. Thanks for hosting another fabulous party! I look forward to it each week! Trish’s art work is amazing – I love her style. My favorite is the Earth is the Lord’s…adorable!

  21. I LOVE your SNS parties! So much great talent out there. I just can’t quite figure out how to copy your button and put it directly on my post. Maybe when you get a free minute you can shoot me an email? Thanks!

    Oh…and I love #1..Trust in the Lord!

  22. Donna, thanks for letting us post our Farmhouse Dilemma. We are looking forward to lots of advise and suggestions. As always you have the most fun parties and this one is no different. LOVE the artwork at the Old Post Road. The hayfield is our favorite. Thanks for all your time & talents! Deborah & Hubs

  23. super fun contest.. I choose joyful hydrangeas.. I don’t publish my email.. but IF I win, just leave me a comment at my place then I’ll email you.. thanks!

  24. Thanks for hosting the party…I’m having soooo much FUN! I pick…Be Joyful Hydrangeas…I’m going right over to Trish’s blog. LOVE your blog…soooo…I’m going to follow along with you!

    Hope you have a great Sunday!


  25. Fun contest! I love all of the anything goes SNS. I’m about to immerse myself in Trish’s blog–her bedroom is gorgeous!

    If I won, I’d have to take that print of the “Hydrangeas in Vase.” The green is so fresh! Makes me hope spring is right around the corner.

  26. I love, love, love her stuff. It is so whimsical, yet so inspirational! Because I am a woman of indecision, I am torn between the “Be Joyful Hydrangeas” and the “Trust in the Lord.” Hydrangeas are my fav flower, but I love that little bird and that scripture so much! Have a great night and a blessed week!

  27. I like the white hydrangeas–I have that verse on my kitchen wall. I don’t always remember to live it, but I do try. Such joyful paintings!

  28. Oh my heck! I love them all, but, #4 the Hydrangea one is perfect. I need to see that everyday! What an inspiration. Thank you both! Oh, this is my first time linking up to SNS…so excited to find some fun ideas.

  29. I may be too late, but if not, I love the Trust in the Lord print. The hydrangeas were a very close second.
    I’m new here, just found your blog, LOVE it, I will be back…often 🙂
