giveaway : fifi flowers + quaint



Hi Everyone -

I'm so excited to show you the wonderful paintings Fifi Flowers created using my recent photos from the New York Botanical Garden. It's thrilling to think that my work inspired another artist and one that I admire so much. I love Fifi's work as it is so creative, lively and colorful.



Fifi suggested that we do a giveaway of 8 frameable note cards from her shop, which sounded great! As as added bonus, I'll include a 5" x 7"photo of each one, too. All you have to do is leave a comment by Sunday, March 15th and we'll announce the winner on Monday, March 16th.




If you haven't been to Fifi's place before, please have a visit and enjoy her trips to far off places in the most elegant-style and all things fashionable. You can also purchase the original paintings and others in her Painting Gallery and Etsy shop, which also includes wonderful stationery.



Good Luck! Thank you Fifi!



xo, Cindy
