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.

    I LOVE Austin & Boston & not just because they rhyme. I spent my entire childhood living just outside Boston and it’s always felt like home. Austin, though, is the one city that I’d consider moving to (if it wasn’t so darn hot)!

  2. Erin says

    I LOVE Florence, Italy! I fell in love with it during a trip throughout Italy a couple years ago and it is definitely my favorite Italian city.

  3. Aurelie says

    i love hawaii! ok, so that’s not a city, but every island i’ve been to has been just magical. i can’t wait to go back.

    I grew up in RI, and even though I didn’t grow up in ‘Gansett, we did spend a LOT of time at the beach when I was little. Then, when I went to college at URI, I had the good fortune of essentially living ON the beach for several years. It’s quaint, it’s laid back, and it feels like home.

    but I might pick Miami for my fiance since that’s where he grew up and where his family still lives. It would be neat to have both cities displayed in our home!
