Fab Freebie: City Love

***This giveaway is now closed – see who won below!***

This week’s TWO lucky winners are… Maria G (who loves Kansas City despite being under 12-15″ of snow at the moment) and Fiona (who loves her hometown of Washington DC so much she even loves the traffic). Congrats you two!

Today marks the seven year anniversary of our move to Richmond, VA. Woo hoo! It’s crazy to think that it has been that long, and to celebrate this week’s giveaway is from a city-minded artist: Kimberly of Albie Designs. We’ve had her charming illustration of New York City hanging in our hallway o’ frames for as long as there has been a frame collection there (my sister bought it for Sherry for her birthday a few years back). And now Kimberly has released a Richmond city print. So whether you want her new RVA work of art, or others from around the country (and even the globe) you’ll get your pick thanks to the $100 gift card that she’s offering up to two lucky winners.

    My husband and I lived there for a few years while he was in school. We have many great memories of that beautiful city!

    thats Manchester in Britain, not Manchester MA. I love it because I grew up there. The city has seen so much history, including an IRA Bombing, and has become a fabulous place to be…. wish I were there now.

    I LOVE TORONTO! I love it is an amazing mix of cute little neighborhoods(residential, hipster, chic, you name it),boutiques, amazing restaurants and has an amazing uptown and downtown vibe. I love cycling around and going for brunch with friends. Toronto is a cultural melting pot and will always be home <3

    I grew up in Chesterfield, did undergrad at VCU and grad school at UVA. I now live in Laurel, MD and I love and miss Richmond. Such a neat city, and I even have the typographic map you guys featured awhile ago hanging in my living room. LOVE LOVE LOVE Richmond!

    I love Cleveland! Sure, it doesn’t always get the best press or representation but it’s near my hometown & to me, the west side is full of creativity and endless possibilities. Representin’ the 216

    Texas is home. All 25 years of it. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! (Okay, maybe LA or NYC) :)
