Giveaway – hydrangea painting by Hilda Oomen

PLEASE NOTE THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED, but you are more than welcome to continue to creep. 

I am over-the-moon excited today to announce my very first … 

If you like hydrangeas half as much as I do, you’ll be tore up from the floor up with this little number. I was worried I’d jinx myself if I announced it any earlier as it was still in transit, but luckily this baby arrived this morning. Take it all in / drink it up …

Valued at $130, this 8×8 inch piece of heaven on canvas board is full of what I adore – hydrangea perfection in neutral tones of white, grey, beige and black in oil paint done by the painfully talented Hilda Oomen. Absolute eye candy for fellow hydrangea afficianados. Or, a perfect Mothers Day gift should you celebrate the day in May this year. Unframed and unmatted so you can style however you please. Just a little something to say thank you for supporting me and my ideas these past years. I know. Mucho lame and sappy. 

Here are the giveaway guidelines …
– You can enter if you are a current follower via Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. Yep, my first giveaway it is limited to existing followers only. Next time it’s a free-for-all, but this time around it’s a thank you to my followers, so you have to be part of the club {p.s. I’m happy to ship internationally, so it don’t matter where you live}
– Leave a comment below on this blog post; please leave your name or pseudonym {annonymous comments won’t make the cut}. You can link to your website / include a Twitter username etc. if you like – something I can use to get in contact with you 
– It’s that easy
I will be picking a winner at random on Monday the 15th of April, so you have from now until then to  submit your comment before I rig it so I can keep this beaut all for myself. If I can’t get in contact with the winner after 7 days, I will choose a new winner. 

And of course, more from the crazy-talented Hilda, feast your eyes on these pretties …

Just awesome. You can see all of Hilda’s incredible paintings over on her Etsy shop. Best of luck, homies 🙂

    If I win I’ll give it to my wife. She’s hydrangea crazy, so much so that she even created a blog under a hydrangea related pseudonym :-P. Massive conflict of interest !!!

    Wow, what a great giveaway! I love the painting of the pink flower – gorgeous! (I know that's not the prize, though!)
    Thanks for the chance to win – what great paintings.

    (And I love your husbands comment, and definitely think he should have equal chance to win!!! His wife would be so chuffed to receive that painting!!)
