Christmas In August...and a Giveaway...

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED
Well, the clean out vintage sale is behind me, and I'm just a little worse for wear (with all the heat, rain, and a sore back), but am happy to have it done and lots of items going to new homes!  It always feels good to destash!

I wanted to share a fun project I worked on!  Once in a while, I take a photo that turns out so beautifully, that I want to do something special with it.  Last Christmas, I made some bleached bottle brush trees, and decorated them with little tarnished vintage ornaments.  One had an old silverplate sugar bowl as a base and I took a photo of it.  I loved how the photo turned out, right out of the camera.  Recently, I was contacted by Easy Canvas Prints to do a review and I knew I wanted to try it with my Christmas photo!  I am so happy with how it turned out!


I was actually stunned at the beautiful quality of the print...the soft sheen and the detail...


the canvas finish is smoothly textured and I had it wrapped around the sides...





It will be beautiful hanging on my wall this Christmas!  I can't wait to make canvas prints of some of my other photos!  The site was very easy to use!

  1. This was a great choice to have put on canvas. I love the tarnish on the bowl and ornaments.

    I wouldn't know which photo I would choose or where to start! I think I would automatically go for flowers but you have me so inspired to look at my holiday photos!!

    Thanks for having such a great giveaway!

  2. I really like how that turned out. I'm going to check into this. I'd probably use one of my nature or flower photos. Perhaps a pupster photo...

  8. I have been wanting to try a canvas photo. We just got back from vacation and the photo I would use is one of my nephews as a gift to their grandmother for letting us come and stay at their cottage. Your picture turned out beautifully. Alaina

  9. Your canvas is awesome! Christmasy but not so much that you can enjoy it +through the winter months. If I were to win your giveaway I would use a photo of our (very senior) pup Abbi. Her little gray face with her eyes closed tight sleeping on her favorite pillow....I choke up just thinking about it...Martha

  14. I wish I took better photos, but I have one of my husband walking my oldest daughter down the aisle at her wedding this summer that a professional took. It would look awesome on a canvas!

  17. Love your photo!! I live in high River Alberta Canada and in June 2013 our house was flooded. Even though I had some time to grab some things I wasn't able to get it all before our basement filled with 7 1/2 feet of muddy flood water. When we were allowed back into the house and able to haul the left behind possessions out, out came a sunflower picture frame that had contained my favorite photo of all 4 of our kids. I was devastated. I looked through albums that had been saved and packages of pictures hoping to find a copy or the negative at the very least. Nothing. A year later my daughters birthday came around and I wanted to post a baby picture of her on Facebook so I was looking through albums again and lo and behold, there was a copy of my favorite picture!!!!!! I'm not sure how I missed it the first time but boy was I happy to have found it!!!!!!! So long, long, long story short, THAT would be the picture I would use if I won this canvas giveaway!! :). Thanks for the chance to win!!

  20. Love the print! Great idea to choose that one. I think I would probably print up one of my garden photos. Maybe a butterfly. Or a peony.

  21. Such a beautiful Christmas Joyeux Noël hère with your photo taking center stage in beauty.
    After seeing what you have done here with your photo, I would so love to do the same with a holiday print.

  22. Great shot and looks so professionally displayed this way. I have a wonderful closeup of an orange lily that readers have said looks like an O'Keefe painting. I'd love to see that printed like this.

  24. I have a photo of an old abandoned Hospital from World War I. Ive been told ghosts of soldiers can be seen there! haha I had it framed and gave it as a gift to my mother for her birthday last year. Im very proud of that photo, and everyone is amazed when they find out I am the one who took it. I would love a canvas print to put on the wall of the new home my fiancé and I are buying end of the year. :)

  32. Oh, I would love to win! I've never had a canvas print made from any of my photos. Shameful, huh? I would have a difficult time choosing one, but perhaps I should pick one of my hummingbird photos. Your photo printed up beautifully!

  33. That canvas photo is beautiful! I have so many photos that I'd love to see on canvas, that I'd have a hard time deciding. I'd probably get one for my bedroom...one of my floral pictures. Thanks for the chance to win!
