Calendar Giveaway by Ariana Couvinha!

February 7th, 2011 · 24 Comments

Update: we have a winner… Congrats, Jessica, and thanks to everyone else for entering!

Hi friends, I’m back up and running (being sick is the worst!) and am super psyched to tell you about a new giveaway by one of my new favorite artists, Ariana Couvinha!

Ariana is giving away one of her absolutely charming calendars which includes this beautiful illustration (below) which I just snapped up last week!

The Lisbon-based artist and teacher has an amazing etsy shop I’ve spent way too much time in! Her blog is also super cool if you like hand-drawn aviators like the one above.


To enter to win Ariana’s calendar please leave a comment and I will select a winner on Saturday, Feb. 12th!

Lovely Prints By Flora Douville

French artist Flora Douville (again via where the lovely things are) has a shop filled with her beautiful prints, Happy Fish and other little treasures. According to her portfolio site Flora grew up in a village in Western France, lived in London for two years and currently lives in Nantes, a small city in Brittany. Flora also takes beautiful photos and has a business helping people respect their bodies and find clothes that work for them.



Her 2011 calendar, above, is one of the prettiest I’ve seen so far!
