Wish you were here: free giveaway!

*******************This contest is now closed*********************

It’s time for another free giveaway!

This week’s giveaway was inspired by yesterday’s post about using antique postcards as art for your home. (If you missed it, you can read all about it right here.) Beautiful art for your home is always a great vacation souvenir you can enjoy for years!

To show you that I “practice what I preach”, I’ve framed a trio of antique postcards for you to win. In honor of today’s date, which is “Bastille Day” in France, these postcards are all scenes from Paris:

Ah, Paris. City of Light. Could these pictures add a little “je ne sais quoi” to your home? The lovely architecture in these scenes certainly shows off some of the cosmopolitan style that Paris is so famous for across the centuries. The classic black frames will match any room’s decor.

I used the same technique for mounting these postcards in their frames that I shared with you in this post. You can stand the pictures up in a grouping on a table or hang them in an odd numbered (!) grouping on a wall. (Check out this post to learn how to hang them in a perfect grouping on the first try.)

To Enter:  Leave a comment that begins with “WISH YOU WERE HERE!” and tell me what foreign country you have always dreamed of visiting on vacation. Only one entry per email address will be allowed, so that everyone gets a fair chance of winning. Liberté, égalité, fraternité, my friends!

Enter By:  Monday, July 18, 2011 at 10pm EST

Number of winners: Only 1, so enter now!

The Winner:  Will be selected at random from the total number of comments by using random.org and will be announced in next Tuesday’s post.

Want more giveaways? Let me know about the kinds of thing you would like to win when you enter your comment. You might inspire a future giveaway!

  1. “WISH YOU WERE HERE!” I’ve always wanted to visit France. I love French movies, though I wish I were a little more fluent.

  2. Wish you were here! I am planning a trip to Spain and I can’t wait to go. I’ve been wanting to go for a long time and finally I can afford to go! France is next!

  3. “WISH YOU WERE HERE!” Believe it or not, I’ve always wanted to go to Canada. I’m a big fan of a detective series set in Montreal and it sounds so idyllic.

  4. “WISH YOU WERE HERE” There are dozens of foreign countries I anticipate visiting…or so I dream now, but one I feel destined to visit is Switzerland. I have various colleagues who have visited many times, and I gotta see the breathtaking views in person that they always tell me about!

  5. Wish you were here! OK, I have never been out of the country. The closest I got was a Spanish-Speaking neighborhood in Miami. I have always wanted to go to Paris. I hope I can go someday.

  6. WISH YOU WERE HERE! I would love to go back to Germany. I lived there for 6 months in college. I would love to visit more cities that I couldn’t get to while I was there like Cologne and Heidelberg.

  7. I’m planning a trip to Mexico. When I’m there, I’ll be sure to send you a postcard that says: “WISH YOU WERE HERE!”
