Wednesday giveaway!

Today's giveaway is from Tastes Orangey, a gorgeous shop of original paintings and sewn prints by artist Clare Elsaesser. I'm in love with her romantic artwork with such beautiful figures. I'm daydreaming about painting our bedroom white and hanging a bunch of her paintings (especially these two). She's offering a lucky winner a $100 gift certificate to choose a few favorite pieces from the shop. Which would you choose?

For a chance to win, please visit Tastes Orangey and leave a comment below with your favorite print. A winner will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck! xo

Update: Lauren A. is our lucky winner. Thanks for playing.
