Giveaway of archival quality prints

It has come to my attention that it’s been such a long time since my last Giveaway that I can’t even remember when I last had one. And I always used to host Giveaways. The things I enjoy giving away the most are the things I can make myself, and these are all from my Etsy shop where I have archival quality prints for sale.


Here’s how the Giveaway works:

THE RULES


1. Choose your favorite print from this post or from my Etsy shop, leaving a comment as to your choice.

2. Make sure I have a way of contacting you.

3. For an extra chance at winning, publish this post on your blog, your FB page, by tweeting it, coming back here each time to leave the extra comment.

So that's one comment telling me which print you'd like to win. An extra comment if you blog about it, and another one if you FB it, and yet another if you tweet it. You may leave up to 4 comments this way.

That’s it! It’s simple. The Giveaway will continue until 8 PM on Thursday, March 8 and is open to everyone.

GIVEAWAY ENDS THURSDAY, MARCH 8 AT 8 PM EST


I have a mixture of architecture, birds, and flowers from which to choose ~ (plus there’s a lot more on the Etsy site).

I love them all and it's hard to choose, but I think I'll pick "White Carnation"! Very generous of you.

Cloudia said...

Seems you must do a BOOK.
Have you shown in a gallery?

Mental P Mama said...

I'll take the female cardinal in the snow. And I'd like it in a standout. Thanks. :)

Gail said...

The manor house would go so beautifully with my George at the gate but that carnation is just beautiful.

Ann On and On... said...

Too difficult...ha! I love all of them. To play by the rules I will say the black/white tulips for me, the sunflower for a friend, the dancing titmouse for my g-pa..... :D

Must cast my vote for 'George at the gate' in your Etsy group...'course, you know my weaknesses so this should be no surprise ;>}}

very nice!

Alli said...

Goodness Kate. I love Evening Swirls. The colors and focus just work perfectly for me. Thanks!

thecatalanway said...

Oh how exciting! I would love to have one of your photos on my wall. I knew immediately it would have to be a bird one and after scrolling down - the dancing titmouse! How wonderful and humourous and full of life! that would make me smile every time I looked at her.
Will do some tweeting etc although I'm afraid noone much reads my tweets or Facebook page:(
love Kate x

Merisi said...

Each and every image a wondrous one!

I once went to an after-opening dinner at a home on Rittenhouse Square. Opulence is what i remember, incredible treasures on every wall, paintings hung in three rows, each on top of another.

Amy said...

And to think I almost missed a giveaway because I haven´t been hanging out in blog land lately! Well my dear, there are so many wonderful photos you take it´s very hard to choose. Out of these I think the pink and yellow is my favourite. I loved that first photo also- would love to have stood there and looked at the ceiling in person! Amazing! The snowy manor is lovely but I am sick and tired of snow right now so I need color and sunny happy feelings...thus my choice would fall on the pink and yellow ;-)))
Will post about your contest on my blog next time I post- if I post in time, but I´ll be back and let you know ;-))) Otherwise I´ll take my chances...if it´s meant to be it will be...I´m like that....
Have a lovely day my dear....

Kay said...

Too many choices! I would have to pick between George at the gate and Manor House in February!

(I will not attend the giveaway, but I must say the picture of the Dome in Philadelphia is gorgeous. Love it.)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. So nice to hear from you again. I've been enjoying your old posts, and truly it's good to be in here again :-)

Love Marit

Daryl Edelstein said...

Oh I love the Ansonia either one ...

The Japanese Redneck said...

I think Yellow and Pink is my favorite.

thecatalanway said...

Hi I popped back to say that I put you on my Facebook and tweeted and tonight I will do a link on my blog.
I loved that person who wrote here - noone reads me but I'll post about you anyway!!!
Oh yes - me too - that made me feel less alone!
Voices calling in the wilderness
love all the pictures but still that little titmouse stands out!
And I must go and look at Etsy (still not sure what that is) and look for George.

Ansonia, color version is fabulous!

Hilary said...

All beauties but I especially love that Manor House in Feb. It's a piece of you.. your home.. and it's depicted so beautifully.

sharon said...

The Bell Tower has always been my favorite!

Lili said...

It's so hard to choose you know. Your portfolio is just filled with absolute loveliness. But there is something about the color version of the Ansonia that captured my attention tonight. What an awesome image. This is such a great giveaway Kate, your images are beautiful works of art. xo ~Lili

sharon said...

Left your Link on my FB page, here's looking at you kid. it would be helpful if I put it on the right post! HA!

Linda at Petals and Boots said...

I love all of them, but I must choose your little house sparrow. I love birds, and my far away daughter used to live in Rittenhouse Square! Killing 2 birds with one stone!
Thanks for the chance!

Carolynn said...

Oh my, what fun! It would have to be either the Dancing Titmouse or the Manor House in February. Good luck everyone!

sharon said...

posted on my blog! You go girl!!

Kay said...

The Ansonia in black and white.
I loved them all though .....you do such wonderful work. Thank you for the giveaway

beth said...

since I'm a dancing fool and wonder why they use tit instead of boob, breast or rack, i'd want to have the dancing titmouse....i know...i'm a goon :)
xoox

SD ~ Dawning Inspiration said...

I've loved your female cardinal in the snow forever... it's so sweet!

alphabet soup said...

Oh my!! Decisions. Decisions.

My choice would have to be the dancing titmouse and hot on its heels the Manor House in February.

I'm with Cloudia - you should think about doing a small exhibition. Nothing too stressful of course.

Ms Soup

Georgianna said...

How generous you are, my dear! My attention is captured by the dome image, but I love the red bellied Woodpecker, too.

I'm on some crazy deadlines right now but thinking of you and will catch up soon.

Kate - I love all your pictures. My favorite would be the white carnation followed by the tulips.

Looking at your blog has encouraged me to be more diligent with my own photography and Photoshop skills. Thank you!

thecatalanway said...

Hi Kate
I popped back to see what kindred spirits also live the dancing titmouse! I am fine with whoever gets it and just so happy to have that image imprinted in my brain.
Still I am seeing hanging feathers and thinking of Hope!
Just one thing - did you want the links to FB and tweets?
if yes then my FB is kate wilson and tweet is @thecatlanway
BTW feeling so much better without the wheat but fell off the wagon at the weekend. Sometimes its hard!
love K x

Angie D in Ohio said...

I love the yellow and pink flower. It's breathtaking.

thecatalanway said...

Well here I am shamelessly back here again to increase my chances of the little Titmouse!
and because I have just read the Rules again and realise I should comment for each thing I post.
So this is number 4. I tweeted, FBed, commented and put you on the blog. And I just noticed that someone from me went over to look at you! that was satisfying.
Such a nice idea - and good fun to write about you and fantasise about having one of your lovely images.
Whatever happens - I hope you enjoy the comments and the connections with us all.
Sending Happy March wishes
Kate x

You have beautiful photography...

Susan said...

Tweeted about your post as well! @shjphotographer

Tammy said...

Oh so hard to choose just one, but I'd have to say I love that Dancing Titmouse - I've never seen a bird like that and he's so cute.

Bluebird49 said...

Must you make it so danged hard to choose? I want them all. But, I'll pick the tulips!

Bluebird49 said...

Bluebird49 said...

Although it's quite late, I also blogged about your post --and I've forgotten my tweet password, since I've not used it in a year--so this will be the third and last try for me. Thanks for giving us a chance to have one of your prints.

Kim said...

I have followed your blog for a while now and really look forward to your posts. I like your photo of Female Cardinal in Snow".
Keep blogging!

DesertHen said...

I love the dancing titmouse shot. So cute! My favorite from your etsy shop is the Looking Up texture shot of the daisy!

Jeanne Walker said...

I choose the sparrow. During our Bible study last week, we learned the story of the 'fifth sparrow' in ancient Roman times. Next I love, love, love the carnation.

Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!
