~ Food ~

Although it’s not Valentine’s Day, every day is a great day to appreciate those around you! These happen to be my very own alltime favorite easy to make homemade peppermint sugar cookies. We bake these at Christmas as well, just with diff shapes and colours. The texture is like a fluffy powder explosion when you bite into them!

You can check out the recipe HERE.

~ Presents ~

Don’t bright happy colours make you FEEL happy?

They most certainly do that to me! So if you adore happy and cheerful colours, do I have something for you! See below!

Trish from The Old Post Road is today’s giveaway sponsor with the above gorgeous hand done painting! This one is all about a bucket of zinnias, and is her newest creation. And she kept it out of her Etsy shop so she could give it to you especially for this event!

This painting is done in acrylics, painted onto acrylic paper. And the coolest part? You will be getting an original, not a printed copy! Wow! No other copies will be made of this one so it’s a true original. The painting measures 12″ x 12″, is ready to be framed and will be shipped to you flat. The value of this amazing original is $40.

Trish has one incredible style. The bright primary tones just bring absolute bounce and light to whatever may be ailing you, wouldn’t you agree?

Not sure how to frame it up? Trish has come to the rescue there too! Visit her blog  The Old Post Road HERE where she’ll guide you on doing it the right way and with the most price efficient resources to gitter done.

And while you’re there, you may want to snoop around her blog and see how she’s hung her paintings to brighten up her own space! Trish also launches her new works of art there first too. In fact, that framing post even describes what led her to be inspired to paint those zinnias! I love stories behind the work. 🙂  You will really enjoy being a part of her community!

There are many other equally gorgeous originals and prints available in her Etsy Shop, so you do not have to go without if you don’t win! Do check out her entire collection. I guarantee, the trip there will make you flip! 🙂

Thank-you Trish, for the awesome giveaway!

  6. #20 Anita, lampshade day is the themed linkup for the Saturday Night Special link party this upcoming weekend.

    AND… I messed up on the quiz. I meant beadboard wallpaper, not board and batten. Doh! 🙂

    I’ve changed my post to address these two things.

  7. Wow, what an achievement, congrats!! I’m one of your “2000”, and proud to be. I’d love to win one that pretty painting, or just send me those cookies. YUM.
    Have a great weekend.
    Heidi – Heart and Home

  8. I only know the answer to the first two: Nester and Rhoda. Rhoda got me to buy the wallpaper, though I haven’t put it up yet. I am so excited to do it, though!

  9. I follow you! Thanks for these fabulous giveaways.

    …and I love Trisha’s painting; zinnias always remind me of my Nonna. She’d wrap the stem of one in a wet paper towel, then tie it up in a little piece of waxed paper to bring home. My very own flower! I wish I could grow them, but the humid air on Cape Cod makes it hard for them to grow.

  11. I’d love a chance to win. I’m collecting artwork to hang in my classroom at school. I think the actual work would be more inspiring to my little artists than fine art posters. I also follow your blog on my google reader.

  12. I’m going to throw caution to the wind and enter with only one chance to win. Is that crazy?

    I really love Tirsh’s whimsical style!
