Young Horse Love: Freebie Winner!

Wanna know another amazing animal trick? This is Burger typing right now.

Okay, just kidding. It’s John as usual. You’d know Burger’s not typing because it would look something like this: “ajsaafioi;;;;;;lklkkkk.” Lucky for you this week’s prize isn’t a novel penned by our chihuahua, it’s a colorful painting created by Painting Pony.

And not only is one of you getting a free 16 x 20″ custom painting created by Blitz, Minnow, or Boomer (where you get to select all of the colors to coordinate with your casa), but everyone reading can score a free 5″ x 7″ mini painting with any purchase from the Painting Pony Etsy shop. Just use the code YOUNGHOUSE at checkout.

When we referred to for this week’s random winner’s name (which might be run by a hamster in a wheel, you never know…) we found out the free painting is going to… Melissa H (who’s enamored by just about anything her lab and jack russell do). Congrats! We’re excited that you’ll have a new story to tell at cocktail parties now.

Oh and on Monday we’ve got another prize that’s perfect for anyone looking to green up their nest! Stay tuned…

    I have recently started reading your blog and spent the last three days reading all that I can! I love all the ideas that you guys give and have used in your beautiful home! I have started taking ideas and am working on wall collages and redoing a room that I was tired of looking at the same old decor we had for 6 years. Thanks for all the tips since I definitely don’t consider myself very “handy”!

    Plus, I love seeing your adorable Clara since I too have a sweet baby girl named, Gabriella!! (she’s 9 months but I noticed that she weighs the same as Clara…haha)

    I have been checking my email non-stop in the last 3 days waiting for more posts…I know I am addicted!! :)

    Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway for Painting Pony! The ponies feel like such celebrities for being featured on your blog. :)
    And Ammo the Dachshund says he must meet Burger and get his autograph someday.

    Just a note…
    **Anyone who wants to use the code YOUNGHOUSE to get the free 5×7 mini painting with purchase, just leave the code in the notes to seller section at checkout. sorry for the confusion.

    Got inspiriation from this giveaway for my daughter’s room (we’re changing it b/c she’ll be sharing with her baby brother when he is born in a few months!) – I painted over a canvas (a solid bright blue) that I had done from another place in the house and let my daughter go to town painting different color layers. She’s 21 months. It turned out awesome (and looks similar to the horse painting. . .hmmmm, not sure what that implies!)!!

    I am so sad that I didn’t win this!!! I was so sure that the universe was going to send it my way. I was even trying that whole ‘Secret’ thing where you put it out there and think positive. uh uhhh uhhhhh (crying)

    Well maybe next time. Great giveaway.

    ps. Burger typing is just too cute. I love seeing little ears poking up from behind the computer screen.

    Luck must have been on my side b/c I NEVER win anything!! I am so excited to have won this prize. There’s a blank wall in my second bedroom that has been begging for some artwork and I think this might be where it goes. (Actually there are lots of blank walls screaming for some art love)
    Thanks John & Sherry and also Kyley for the great give away! I am looking forward for to working with Kyley for a great, custom picture with a really cool story behind it! :)

    Congrats to Melissa for winning! I just love this and have added the seller to my favorites on etsy. After I commented to enter the contest, I realized it closed 30 minutes before my comment! (sigh) Better luck next time…hope you will have another contest similar to this open to international readers soon! :)
    PS-I enjoy YHL so much. You both are so inspiring and humorous…I always smile when reading through your posts. :) Thanks and Happy Blogging!
