    22. the pink amaryllis would be my choice...my neighbor, Jill, always grew amaryllis, and she shared bulbs with me the Spring before we discovered she had pancreatic cancer. She was gone in less than 6 months...it would be awesome to have it in bloom in my house ALL year

    23. Carol,

      I love the blooms ... the iris in particular (always a favorite of mine), but I think I'd pick the shell. Must be leftover from living on the coast a few years back! Thanks!

    36. I think I like the Chalfonte Porch one...just because it is abstract looking and different. the plain truth is I finally had to just decide, couldn't stop looking..

    41. 3rd Chance - Carol, I visited your Etsy shop and all I can say is, if I win, I will have a VERY difficult time choosing a print because the more I looked at, the more I liked! The first print to catch my eye when I scanned them was Cabbage because of the soft colors, but I also liked the swan, the shell, and several of the flowers! The one thing that was missing (since it was in your photo, I was hoping you would have one there) - a beautiful, long-haired cat! Maybe on my next visit, I'll see one (hint hint!) :-)

    44. Hi, me again. I looked at your Etsy paintings and my goodness they'll all so beautiful, but I just fell in love with your violet painting. It's my favorite color and also my mother's favorite color. She had passed away 2 years ago and whenever I see violets and lilacs, well it reminds me of her. Please enter my name for the third time for your fantastic Giveaway. Thanks so much for this chance! I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day and a great weekend!
      Hugs...
