Fireflies, a Sneak Peak, and a Giveaway

Dearest Friends,

Here is a little sneakie peak of  my art/guest room/office.
My favorite Amanda Atkins print is front and center.

My dear friend Amanda and I met when I bought this print

for my Daniel.
It is hanging in our living room. 
It is titled, The Demise of the First Poet I Ever Fell Prey To.

Amanda is one of the sweetest, most talented ladies I know.
I feel so lucky and thankful to have her in my world.
I have been collecting little Amanda doodles and I am planning on framing them.
Amanda Dear has graciously offered to host a giveaway for you, my dear friends.

If I could enter I would get this Francesca among Fireflies paper doll print. 
She reminds me of the romantic getaway weekends Daniel and I had in New Orleans. 

So, here's the deal, be a Fritzi Marie follower and visit Amanda Atkins in a Canary Forest then come back here and let me know which print you love the most. 
(It's hard to choose just one)
For a second entry, tell your friends about it via your blog or facebook.
Remember to come back and let me know.
And finally for a third entry visit Amanda's blog and let her know how amazing she is.
We will pick the lucky winner next Monday November 29th. 

Thank you Dear Amanda.
I adore you.

love love,
Fritzi Marie

OHHH!!!! I love her prints, I hope I win!!!!
My hubby & I went to New Orleans on our Honeymoon, so that print of Francesca makes me think of that special and romantic time <3
My Favorite? Hmm... I LOVE "Stella the Astronomer", but I think my favorite of all is "It caused in my heart a forest". It's so lovely, and it needs to come live with me.

Ashley / StarSparrow said...

Ashley / StarSparrow said...

I love this giveaway!
What great artwork she has!
I am in love with the "He speaks my language print"! That would fit perfectly!

I met Amanda at MICE in Boston and have been loving the cards I got. My favorite print is And with unspoken ease I was your pet (tattooed lady).

so hard to choose but I narrowed it down to two.
Either Live Gently with Passion or Tenderfoot.

I think I like the Zelda print the best. I like the stars! She is so talented! I love how they all have so much character! Please count me in! =)

My stomach is in knots trying to pick just one. :-) But even though there are several that I just LOVE, I'm going to have to go with Rebecca and the Raccoon (it'll go great with my raccoon treasures I got from YOU).
And I love your new office/guest room wall. I wish I could come visit you at your house. It looks so beautiful.
Okay, off to visit Amanda's blog!

Jane said...

I'm entering a second time, after visiting miss Amanda (she seems way cool).
Thanks again. I hope you guys have fun on your Thanksgiving Day at the movies!

Lauren said...

I like "Night Map" original drawing and "The Art of Waiting"...
Guess I identify most with those :) I love art. Love you!

My favorite favorite is "For Antoine" because The Little Prince is one of my favorite books (and I think the lady in the painting looks a little bit like me).

I told my friends and am going to wave at Amanda's blog. I adore her! (And you!)

lindsey said...
