congratulations to the winner, jeanette whose favorite sunny spot is: The vintage iron day bed on the tiny patio off my bedroom. I have a modern house but I hide this old favorite away, it's piled with quilts and I love to lay out there and read in the sun.

a bit of a bio :: I live in Colorado Springs, CO. I am a stay at home mom with a husband and two boys. I left my job a few years ago. I hope to return to work as a corporate paralegal someday. But for now I need flexibility and fun. I have always loved to paint, so I decided to do it for real. I set up an art room at home, and I started painting all of the ideas and images that have been in my mind for so long. I've collected quite a few paintings now, and need to get my stuff out there. I set up a blog and an ETSY shop to get brave. This now gives my work a home out there on the web. I feel very lucky that I am able to do what I love. Jane also does beautiful custom renderings; paintings of favorite vacation spots or a watercolor of your home!

thank you jane. please visit her blog + shop

Good morning! I found your lovely blog just yesterday. As for my favorite sunny spot: in an Adirondack chair most anywhere on the Florida Gulf coast. Ah...white sand and clear water...I can smell the Coppertone already.

Linda said...

These cards make me want to pick up my paint brush. Favorite sunny spot- our life has been in transition the last little while... so any place where the sun shines and it feels welcoming.

I love the park where I went on my first date with my fiance. It's bright and sunny and beautiful.

I love the loveseat right by our big picture window with the blinds open. Especially when the sun streams in so bright it makes me squint to read my latest book.

South Haven, Michigan!

Melissa said...

My favorite hotspot is the beach! More specifically, somewhere with white sand and blue, blue water. Pensacola, Destin, Gulf Shores, Mexico....

Beautiful cards!!

I grew up in Va Beach, so my favorite sunny spot will always be there. More particularly there is a spot, more towards the Chesapeake Bay that my family always went to (away from the tourists and vacationers). You had to walk through a sand path of trees and dunes to get there, but once you did the beach there was breathtaking.

I still visit there when we're in Virginia :)

My favorite sunny spot is in Fort Worth, TX. There is a wonderful store called Central Market that has a great patio+kids area. I love sitting on the patio with friends enjoying dinner and gelato!

I like all sunny spots so it's hard to pick a favorite. I did really like going to Puerto Rico last year and Thailand is a great place to get some sun.

Lena said...

In the afternoon the sun blasts through the kitchen window. I like to stand there and look at the neighborhood.

My favorite sunny spot is my kitchen and breakfast nook early in the morning. When I wake up, I always think that I must have left the lights on the night before! It is the best place to sit down with a bowl of cereal, and my plants drink it all up as well :)

Parked on the beach in Hawaii...

the Hawks said...

What a splendid idea! My favorite sunny spot...the park not a mile from my house which drops like a cliff into Lake Michigan. You would never know it was a lake and would mistake it for the ocean.
Thank you!

ellen said...

I love going to Maine on a sunny day!

Miss Five said...

My favorite sunny spot is the deck of my aunt's cabin overlooking the Cascade resevior in Idaho. Especailly when everyone else has gone down to play in the water...

Living in Canada where winter doesn't want to end, I love the sea and the beach... where ever it is!

Kimmie Jean said...

my parents house in S. Florida:)

julia said...

My favourite sunny spots are the rare ones. The living room floor on a winter morning when its been raining all week, the front steps at my parents' for an hour in the afternoon when the sun sneaks between trees, and best of all when its just at the right height to hit the prisms in the windows, and throw rainbows around.

I love to sit on our bench outside. It gets just enough shade and sunlight to be a perfect spot.

Krista said...

Hawaii..., but I'm hoping soon it will be my backyard once we finish with a backyard makeover!! :)

Walter Helena said...

My favourite sunny spot is my parents' backyard; grass, brick pavers, always food, and the familiar sound of the neighbours and the feeling that calm and family are nearby.

I'm having a giveaway of my own right now, if anyone here would like to enter. It's not watercolour, but it is a giclee fine art print.... :)
