A few weeks ago, a really big box showed up.
Guess what was inside? A gorgeous hand painted wall hanging by Carmen Guedez. And it matched perfectly with our main floor living area decor.
It matched so perfectly, in fact, that you’d think I would have had it commissioned or something. But the funny thing is, I knew nothing about the fact that Carmen Guedez was sending me a wall hanging to review.
You see, Amy sets up the giveaways that run on my blog and she works directly with the companies to decide what will be best for my readers. In most cases, they send a review item for me ahead of time.
Oftentimes, a company will ask me to choose an item to review. But sometimes, a company will just send an item of their choosing. So a surprise box will just show up with a review item in it, which is what happened this time around.
So I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the contents of the surprise box: Carmen Guedez had picked the absolute perfect wall-hanging to send and I promptly fell in love with it.
It’s just perfect, so beautifully done, and matches our family’s style to a tee.
And I’m really, really excited because I get to give away a very similar painting to one of my readers this weekend.
One of you will win the Sunset Garden wall hanging shown above so that your living room can match our living room. Wait, that sounded a little weird. Okay, how about more like so that you can also display a really lovely painting in your home, too? 🙂
This Sunset Garden painting by Carmen Guedez is a 48-inch by 24-inch Oil and Acrylic on Canvas painting. It’s 100% handmade original (not a print) and has 1 3/8-inch painted edges (no staples on the sides). It comes with Carmen’s signature on the front and back and also has a certificate of authenticity.
And, if you’re anything like me, I promise you’ll love it!
