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.
