I wasn’t entirely sure I’d get to this so soon but I’ve felt the suspense building all day. Not among the entrants, by the way, but among… me, myself and I. Even I had to know who won this painting.
First of all, thanks to all of you who entered my humble giveaway! This has been so much fun for me! If I could afford it, I’ve had a giveaway every single day. I read each comment and I’ve visited every blog and website left for me. (In fact, I’ve added so many new bookmarks to my browser, I’ve had to set aside time to reorganize the folder. Oh, the untold additional hours I’ll be whiling away on the web now visiting your blogs!)
And the winner is…

Congratulations, Nina! Please click here to email me your mailing address and I will ship “Beaches of 30-A” to you as soon as I can find a box big enough. (And please send me a photo of it hanging it its permanent home. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!)
As for the very unscientific results of my very unscientific poll, California was edged out by Paris as the most popular response to the question: “If you could have a destination blind from any city/area in the world, what city/area would you choose?” Had I lumped in other places in France with Paris, it would have been a blowout. Top six destinations were, in order:
- Cape Cod & Texas (tie)
Your comments were so great to read and gave me lots of new places to fantasize about visiting when our kids are grown and I’m too old and crabby to enjoy traveling.
In the meantime, I’m contenting myself with creating new destination blinds for places I love and the places I long to see. One of my favorite parts of the giveaway was discovering that two commentors mentioned a destination blind I’d already designed but not yet painted. Great minds think alike!
Here’s a sneak peak, a blind listing homes figuring prominently in Jane Austen novels:
I hope to have a few of these ready to sell to other Austenophiles at my next market.
Once again, thanks again to all of you who entered the giveaway! And special thanks to Kim at Twice Remembered Cottage for sponsoring such a great “get-together” for her blogging community!
