Really, anything?!? My top pick would be a custom pet portrait of my sweet gray and white Labradoodle!

deb* said...

What a lovely thought. I'd choose one of those pretty monograms. Merry Christmas!

Rebecca said...

Well the custom social event would be my pick. Not because it is the most expensive but because then I would have a memory of our family Christmas celebration.
Your blog is such a fun place to visit!

Cheryl said...

Patricia,
I'm not sure what you really mean. I would adore a PVE house portrait!! But if that is not in the mix, your hydrangea not cards are beautiful!

Alison said...

I would just love the gift of a PVE house portrait!!!

ArchitectDesign™ said...

Yes, I think my favorite part of the season is gift giving. I always go way overboard - tis more fun to give than receive!
That said -I love your personal monograms!

pve design said...

Lobster meets Peach,
Love to create a custom house portrait for you with lobsters everywhere!
pve

A.D.-
Going overboard can be even the simplest of things, like a fresh cut sprig of holly but giving creates goodwill and I can totally see you going overboard.
Lucky friends and family deserve that,

Since I am fortunate enough to already own a custom blog header AND the most fabulous house portrait I feel a little guilty even entering this very generous giveaway. But I'm in! I'd love to have a custom monogram too!

Happy Holidays to the sweetest most generous blogger/person year round (that's you!).

Living Life in the Lowcountry said...

You are too sweet! I would pick the goldfish cards! I love writing little notes to people and what a beautiful card that would be to use!
Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday!

the gardener's cottage said...

patricia you are so kind. i can't believe you are offering this.

since i already have a beautiful house portrait (i think of you every time i pass by it) i think a pkg of your lovely giftcards would be so nice. the hydrangea or florist would be so nice to send out.

much love and merry christmas to you.

PVE House portrait! Yes, Yes, Yes! I would love to have one of your designs. I'm crossing my fingers for luck.

I hope you have a beautiful day!

Garden to Ewe said...

I would adore a pet portrait! My beloved English Cocker, Arthur, is over 16 years old and has three tumors and won't make it much longer. He sits at my front door everyday with his little brother, Oakley, waiting for me to come home from work. That image in my mind will be with me a lifetime but it would be nice to have it illustrated- Coming Home.
Thanks!Kirsten-kelandre@aol.com

eLIZabeth Floyd said...

Patricia,

Wow, I would love to see how you would interpret my sweet Abyssinian kitty with a custom pet portrait...

Liz

PS. maybe I would rather have the custom monogram... it is hard to choose.

kimt said...

Love all the best notecards...or the monogram ones!

Windlost said...

Hi Patricia, what a kind and sweet giveaway. I would choose the custom monogram or the pet portrait of my beloved orange kitty. :D

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Lynn Osborne said...

A house portrait, of course! Everything is beautiful. Merry Christmas!

katjeh said...

dear pve-what a true Christmas sentiment! if i were the lucky recipient, i would choose a custom monogram. i hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday!

Hattiepattie said...

Dear PVE,
Decisions, decisions! I would choose the custom pet portrait. Our dog went on to doggie heaven this past Sunday so a picture of him would be extra special!
Blessings to you and your family!

SALLY said...

Patricia, my pick would be for you to paint Garden to Eve's cocker, Arthur.

BRASWELL said...

What a sweetie you are! I would choose the pet portrait of Barkley.
Have a wonderful Thursday greetings from chilly s. ca. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

pastsoon said...

Wow, talk about the spirit of the season ~ you are Amazing AND generous. Bespoke and Gorgeous....Everything you do, with a special touch that makes it seem even extra personal and many artists do "custom" very well but the finished piece lacks that personal connection. You get it and you create it and now you're giving it away. Did I say WOW! Ok to the business of it all ~ I would choose to have the portrait of our furry golden child with (if possible) his 2 feline siblings that are now only with us in spirit. He still sees them and sometimes even chases them so it would be lovely to capture that wonderment visually and for eternity. How I wish I'd known your work almost 15 years ago when we were married ~ A wedding day portrait would have been magnificent. Thank you for a lovely and meaningful blog ~ Merry Christmas. TJF

loving all your comments.
getting me in the spirit of wrapping and giving away my presents!

Unknown said...

You are both generous and inspiring--great reminder that the holidays are about the giving, not the receiving (something I try to remind the fourth graders that I teach, but they are 10 year olds). I would choose the custom monogram just because then I would not have to pick between my black lab or my 19 year old sweet cat for a pet portrait. Thanks for the great reminder of what the holidays are truly about! --Julia

Phyllis said...

What a generous person you are...with your time, talent, and spirit. Your mom and dad must surely be so proud of you.

When presented with an offer as this, I would have to choose one of your luscious house portraits...I love every single one I've seen.

I have big, old trees surrounding my house. We built it in the Williamsburg style, made with old bricks we chose to give it texture. There's symmetry in the double doors and windows which have no shutters so they appear to be big pretty eyes. I love it so. If you saw it you would just have to paint it.

Win or lose, I win by having your blog and work as inspiration. You're a special person, Patricia. Have a Wonderful Holiday.

pve design said...

Phyllis,
Yes, my Mom and Dad are proud of me and all of their children and grandchildren. Did you know that I am one of seven? I really would love to create a work of your home. I can feel your love from the words you left.
Thanks- back to bed for me. College boys are home and I always have to check on whereabouts.

Mystica said...

Love the purple hydrangea note cards.

Marcy said...

Patricia, thank you for this very generous gift! It seems almost impossible to choose from all that you offer in your shop, but I would choose a custom pet portrait of our Westie - it would be a gift to our whole family!

Merry Christmas!

Let The Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore said...

Generous indeed…
I am going to have to say a custom wedding portrait for when we finally tie the knot in 2013. Nothing beats original artwork on your walls except for when it’s PVE artwork! xx

KCG said...

Such a wonderful idea - 'tis the season!

I'd enjoy a portrait of the two things that bring me the most comfort and joy, my home (and those that live in it) and my terrier Bailey.

Joan said...

I love your shop, I purchased the beautiful tote bag this past summer, and it's great! If I could choose anything, I think it would be a pet portrait of my 2 goldens!

Amanda R said...

Wow! This truly captures the spirit of the season. If I had my choice I would select the custom home portrait. It took us 3 years to sell our old home a purchase our new home. We had to be truly patient as things didn't go exactly as planned. It was truly God's plan as we wound up closing and moving just one month after I gave birth to our second child. Not exactly the best time to move, but now that we have lived here for 6 months I will say that there is no place like home. I would love for your to capture our new home - the place where my two little boys will grow up. Merry Christmas! Amanda

Kentucky Kim said...

Patricia, this is such a generous offer of spirit and talent for the season! I would love to honor our home of 20 years (she recently had a facelift) with our sweet Frenchie Mya in the mix! Merry Christmas from the 'Ville!

lsellers said...

The custom house portrait would be a dream. Of course, you give to us all the time. Thank you for the wonderful gift that is your blog. Merry Christmas.

Isa Loundon said...

i would love the purple hydrangea notecards to give to my mother! she is a great lover of written correspondence (we still write notes to each other, even at 30 and 58!) and I know how much she loves your work. I introduced her to your blog and she's now a subscriber! :)

Liza said...

I would love a Home Portrait!

jpbtarheel said...

A portrait of my sweet comfort - our family golden retriever (who looks like a lion!) Saint. He is our protector (of chickens, children and family) and the biggest love in our home.

Sweet William said...

The PVE house portrait of course!Your blog make my days merry and bright, all my best to you and you family! G

vivienne strauss said...

I would have to go for the purple hydrangea cards, my favorite flower and you've depicted it beautifully!

quintessence said...

What a wonderfully generous holiday surprise! And a tough choice but I think I would love to immortalize my loving pup!

lynn said...

How generous you are! I would love a portrait of my two little dogs.

Lynn

Mary said...

I would choose artwork of my home as home is my place of comfort and joy.

Stephanie said...

What an amazing and generous giveaway! I just love your art and would be so lucky to have a piece to call my own.
If given a choice, I would love a custom painting of our home. We are fortunate to live in my childhood home and three generations would certainly appreciate seeing the beauty you would add to our Cape.
Merry Christmas and many wishes for all good things in 2013!

jacqueline said...

Love, Love, Love your custom home portrait! Fingers crossed!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Hello Patricia - any of your wonderful items would be a great gift. I must say a pet portrait would be the best!!

How very generous of you. Thanks for the opportunity.

Cheers!

Chic said...

How generous! This christmas I am dreaming of a custom home portrait, it was at one point the highest skyscraper in New York!

Brenda said...

How wonderful!! I found you through Absolutely Beautiful Things as I loved the paintings that you did for Anna. I thought that you captured the blues and table so beautifully. If a christmas gift was to come my way from you I think I would like to choose the note cards and with your permission I would frame one of them. Also the furry baby you've just painted looks alot like Anna's dog Ned! Merry Christmas to you x

Purple Flowers said...

If I were to choose from your artistic hands, it would be a portrait of my ninety one year Mother. I adore her, and all that she stands for in life.
Patricia: you are most generous for holding this giveaway.

Mimi said...

The joy of Christmas is in giving!
I would love to see how you would capture our beloved Doodle, a Jack Russell. At 12, she is as feisty as ever, just recovering from a bit of cancer surgery, but ready to get back out on the farm and chase a few more squirrels!!!

Merry Christmas to you and yours and thank you for your generosity!
