To start the new year off right, I am giving away an original painting by Michelle Armas. It's called Girl in Flowers, and you can read more about it right here. Leave a comment before next Sunday, January, 11th (at midnight) to be entered. Good luck!

** Update! Thanks so much for all the entries! Chrissy Raftery won (picked through Random.org) and an email has been sent her way. 


  1. This painting is so romantic!
    One of the things I would love to accomplish in 2010 is to buy a house here in London, where we have been renting for years.
    This painting would look wonderful in my dream house!


  2. this is exquisite! I’ve just moved into a crumbly old house and this would make a great improvement! I’m going to explore her website – what a discovery xx

  3. I would so love to win this! I found Michelle’s website a couple of months ago and have been wistfully thinking about where I would put one of her paintings…if I won, I know I have just the right spot in my house… 🙂

  4. I came across this inspirational quote by Abram L Urban that reminds me of this painting.

    “In my garden there is a place for sentiment.
    My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
    The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams as beautiful”.

    Thank you for introducing me to this wonderfully talented artist.

  5. Thank you for hosting this great giveaway. This picture is beautiful. I would love it for my daughters to grow up with and share in the beauty of love.

  6. That painting is EXACTLY the sort I have been looking for–dreamy, romantic, and perfect for the little ache in my heart that’s been longing for spring to come early!

  7. I am the only female in my home. I would love this touch of femininity to remind me that I don’t need to balance the masculinity all by myself. What a generous giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity Chelsea!

  8. There is something so ethereal about the somewhat unfinished look of this. Such an alluring part is the consumingness of the flowers over the women or is it the women over the flowers. So pretty

  9. Roses and ranuncs, I’m in flora heaven as normal, prettiness personified in a painting! Where do you trouve these gems? Another inspiring frolic find, HNY from a fellow flower girl xx

  10. Beautiful and dreamy colors… perfect inspiration for a English garden wedding, or perfect for a lovely spot on the wall in my bedroom!

  11. This painting stopped me in my tracks! It’s beautiful – everything I wish I could have put in a painting like this – gets me out of the Winter doldrums!

  12. i just found your blog and it’s so cute!
    love the painting… that would look gorgeous in my home! thanks for such a beautiful giveaway 🙂


  13. Please enter me for your drawing. My Mother grows old roses. Recently looking after my 88 yr old Dad has become all consuming, like the woman in the painting. This would be a wonderful pick me up for her.
