A Win & A $200 GC Giveaway!

I recently won a giveaway from the beautiful and talented Melaine at  My Sweet Savannah .  My gift was a custom art piece from  Modern Bird Studios.   I submitted a photo taken in front of our hotel in Venice.  Venice will always have a special place in my heart because Hubby and I were married there.  You can read about our wedding  here

Modern Bird Studios  took my photo and turned it into a wonderful personalized art piece, hand painted on wood.  When I opened the package I could not believe how beautiful it was!  The shadows in the painting are amazing and they seem to change in different light. The photos here can not capture how stunning this painting really is. 

Thank you so much Melaine and Modern Bird Studio for this fabulous gift!  I will cherish this always.




Now for the Giveaway...

I love my gift so much that I asked Megan and Gregg if they would do a personalized art piece for one of my readers.  They have generously offered a $200 gift certificate to Modern Bird Studios  as a giveaway!  Thank you both.

To enter :
 Visit  Modern Bird Studios and come back here and leave me a comment.

For extra entries:
1. FOLLOW Modern Bird Studios on Twitter for 1 extra entry
2. LIKE  Modern Bird Studios on Facebook for an additional entry.

There are three chances to win so please leave a separate comment for each entry. This giveaway is open to the continental US and ends at midnight 11/1/10. Winner will be drawn randomly and announced the following day.

You do not have to be a follower of No Minimalist Here to win. I do really appreciate my following friends and those that take time out of their busy lives to visit me. Thank You!



If you don't want to wait to see if you are a winner Modern Bird Studios is also offering a 15% discount to my readers.  The discount is available for up to one week after the giveaway ends. Use the code NOMINIMALIST.

Thank you so much for entering and good luck to everyone.

xoxo,
Sherry

Hi Sherry...

Ohhh my goodness...what a fabulous gift, my friend! Sherry, as soon as I seen this...I knew right away that this was the view looking toward San Giorgio Maggiore! My honey and I have stood on that very spot...with that same exact view! We honeymooned in Venice five years ago...it was fabulous! Of course, I guess I don't need to tell you! Hehe! Anyway, that really is a very beautiful piece of art...and it holds such special memories for you! I love that! Thank you for sharing it with us...I'm sooo happy for you, sweet lady!

I'll have to meander over to Modern Bird Studios! Thank you so much for hosting this fabulous giveaway gift for us...this is so sweet and very generous! Thank you, Sherry!

I also wanted to thank you for your recent visit and sweet note that you left on my autumn leaves vignette! You made my heart smile, my friend!

Warmest autumn wishes,
