I am delighted to share today’s amazing giveaway from the lovely Twiggs.  She is among my newest sponsors but she has also quickly become a friend.  I’m honored to have her here with us today because she is a constant source of inspiration to me!  Perhaps some of you have gotten to know her as well through her blog, A Place for Twiggs?

Well, today Twiggs is offering our Flying House readers a chance to win this beautiful photo, Mrs. Olive Green, plus your choice of a second 5×7 from her shop.  That is a total value of $42!  Eeek!  Isn’t that fantastic?  To enter you can simply leave a comment and tell me which photo you would choose as your second 5×7 if you won.  You can go to Twiggs’ shop to see her work.

For additional chances to win you can:

Follow Twiggs on Twitter.

Add her shop to your favorites.

And/or Subscribe to her blog.

For each one of these add a separate comment (and if you are already doing one of these feel free to leave an extra comment as well!)

I will choose a random winner on Monday, February 21st!

Great giveaway. My first car was a VW Beetle – black and cream. Loved that car. But green is my favourite colour ever, so this photograph is calling me!!! And, to pick another, there are so many lovely ones, but I think I go for the ‘Cream Hearted Door’ or the ‘Red Balloons’. Happy day up there!

Mmmmm! Her work is soft and yummy. I would choose “Softness” as my second print. It’s just so airy and light. My son would love the “Herbie car” print too.

Oh! I love Mrs. Olive Green. My parents had a volkswagen bug when I was growing up. My second choice would be “what a mess”. Love it. I am a packrat at heart and that print just calls my name!

Twiggs’ creativity is definitely an inspiration, and her positive tone refreshing! Mrs. Olive Green is so cool, and I would also choose The Fall Collection. It reminds me of my Jadyn, and how she always comes home with a pocketful of treasures… Have a great day! (it is sunny and 70 here in GA, just thought you should know…bliss.)

I love “Will You Marry Me?” I am trying to start a collection of photos and paintings of different churches and this would be perfect! Also, the green VW Beetle would really accompany a photo I have of a red VW beetle that I took in Serbia.

I like summer memories–it really does look like an image you’d keep in your mind from childhood, but I really love Mrs. Olive Green. I love bugs and wish I had a taken a shot like this one before selling mine!

Olá! Escrevo em Português, pois é a minha língua materna, e assim garanto que consigo expressar exactamente o que Vintage Celabration da twiggs, representa para mim. Em primeiro lugar quero dizer que desde que descobri APFT, se completamente viciada do trabalho da Cláudia. Através da sua câmara, consigo ver o mundo com outros olhos e com outra côr. E peno que é por isso que tanto gosto do Vintage Celabration, transporta-me para uma infância longíqua, doce, colorida. E ficava mesmo bem na minha sala! Obrigada!
