win over

....and the winner is "A Gift Wrapped Life"
Firstly, the "potager garden artwork" that I posted yesterday goes to the randomly selected winner- "A gift wrapped life" - most deservedly so, since this summer, her garden has been demolished by a street wide debacle, otherwise known as construction.

 Secondly, what would it take to win you over?  
A lush garden of earthly delights?
(The above illustration belongs to a gentleman with a green thumb for the garden and home.
Win me over and tell me who?  His heavenly garden transformation has been the envy of many.)

Perhaps a wheelbarrow of freshly laundered faded florals to lay down in the grass with the one you love.  A picnic basket of some fresh strawberries, fromage, a crusty bit of bread and a little wine....
and then after you wake up from an afternoon dream, you could skinny dip here...
or you could just unwrap all those glorious boxes that Sande tempts us with!
Congrats to Sande and I now have the challenge of wrapping my framed work of art to send to a wrapper extraordinaire!
Thanks to each of you for your comments!
You have no idea as to how they win me over and how full of gratitude I am to each of you!

Congrats to the winner. Love the pretty garden but I'm not sure who it belongs to. I'm going to guess Eddie Ross.

What fabulous news to wake up to! I am so excited to have my own PVE artwork and it will inspire me next spring when I reconstruct my garden. Thank you Patricia!!! You decide on the framing......you are the artist! I will be thrilled beyond words to hang this in my home and be reminded of my talented blogger friend. XO

I can picture his house, and his dignified way of speaking, however, I can't think of his name. Suspense is kind of fun.

The pool looks so inviting and cool.

Congratulations to Gift Wrapped Life! I just love when things work out this way: that someone whose own garden has been taken from her now receives an everlasting garden from you, Patricia.

Rats! I sooo wanted to win that one... It's definitely one of my favorites of the paintings you've featured.

Simply Mel said...

Yippee for Sande! So deserved! And PVE, I totally understand how you must feel to send a wrapped package to the Queen of Pretty Presents!

Janet said...

Some climbing roses, a few Macintosh squares, a thermos of tea, and a deliciously scandalous novel...all the ingredients for my garden of delight.

Deidra said...

Congratulations - she's got a delightful blog! I've no idea who owns that lovely garden, but I'll be checking back to find out.
