July Fest Giveaway!!

Sorry to keep everyone waiting! The giveaway is a little later than usual this month because I just returned from a lovely vacation in Seattle Wa. I won't bore you with details of my fabulous trip, I will just tell you about our wonderful fest member who is our giveaway sponsor this month!

Our July sponsor is Kelly Warren of Happy Shack Designs & her other shop Kelly Warren Photo Art. She is a multidimensional talent. The piece for this months giveaway comes from her amazing photography. A gorgeous photo entitled "bliss" mounted on a 6x6 inch wooden box frame . It makes a lovely addition to any room as it can be hung on the wall, sat on a shelf, or even placed on the windowsill. The photo Kelly tells us is from her sister's wedding bouquet.

These little treasures are not available in her shop on Etsy, yet, but are for now only available locally. You could be the first to own one outside of Florida!
The photo is beautiful. I just love Irises.

How to Enter: If you would like to be entered to win this beautiful piece by Kelly, just visit one of her shops listed above or any of the other fest members listed to the left. Pick another purple item & post the listing in your comment with a once sentence description of the item.
Be sure to include a name & email so I can contact you if you are the winner!
The winner will be drawn on Aug 31st with a random number generator from all the entries.
Good Luck!

  2. Kelly is so talented! I love her lampwork, jewelry and photography:o) I picked Kelly's item: Desmond's Rear Emblem - Fine Art Photograph by Kelly Warren. I love the 'purple patina' created by the environment and Kelly captured the character that this classic still exudes.

  10. Purple flower button:

    I surely hope I win this. I love irises and this is one of the prettiest photographs I've ever seen. Wow. I'd love to hang it above my desk.

  11. Btw, if I don't win (and I won't, because I never do) is there a way to purchase a copy? I looked around on her site and saw the print for sale but not mounted on a box. I don't know if I can afford it but I'd be very interested to know what it would cost and if it is available. Thanks very much!
