The Winner is...

Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments.

vine-for-giveawayWhen my girls were little we had the custom of giving them an unbirthday gift when it was the other's birthday. Then when my daughter turned six I started a tradition of having each little guest have her own little cake with a candle so that she could have a birthday wish too.


vine-for-giveawayI love giving unbirthday gifts, so why not give an ungiveaway gift too? Each of you wins an original miniature watercolor painting of your favorite flower.

basket-for-postMy daughter Sarah picked the winner for the custom watercolor painting. When I read the name, I thought...oh my, Celetina is an incredible artist herself. I will try by best to surprise you. If you are not familiar with her work, you must pay her a visit.


The mini paintings will take me a while, but I promise I will get them to you as soon as possible.

My creationPlease e-mail me your mailing address at and remind me which flower you choose. You might think me Mad, but I am you see, going to a Mad Tea Party that is, at Vanessa's A Fanciful Twist on the 27th of June. So please stop back.

Have a perfectly unbirthday kind of day. Until then...I'll be painting the roses red and other flowers too!

The song for this post is Painting The Roses Red. The graphics for this post was created by using the enchanted elements by PIckleberrypop. The roses were designed by Jasmin Olya Designs.
