Its a about a Giveaway?

Good morning! Have you recovered fully from your Easter dinner? We had a brunch here at my house and I admit....ate a little toooo much. Not quite a Thanksgiving portion, but still more than I needed. lol.

Welcome to another week of Artist Spotlights! Hopefully, you'll be introduced to a few new artists/photographers/designers that you haven't heard of yet. Before I go on any further I wanted to announce the winner of last week's GIVEAWAY! And, the winner is......

Georgianna Lane!!! Congrats, Georgianna! I'll be contacting you soon with more details. :)

For this week's GIVEAWAY, Elizabeth from EV Photography has generously offered the beautiful photograph above. As always, all you need to do is leave comments for the featured artists (the more you leave the more chance you have of winning).

Wouldn't this look so peaceful in a cottage themed home or even in a bathroom with an ocean theme? One great thing about this print is that it is also being offered for sale on a charitable website called "A Beautiful Idea". The idea behind "A Beautiful Idea" is that artists partner with them and create a product(s) and when they sell, the artist donates the money to the current charity via A Beautiful Idea’s donation center. As a side note, from now on you will see a button in the right sidebar of Simply Hue called "Artists Give Back" and it will be linked to this site. :)

Well, I guess I've taken up enough of your morning. Hope your Monday doesn't feel like a Monday and that you have a great new week. I'll be here with an I Create Interview with Alice Wingerden tomorrow! xo


  1. Beautiful photograph and it would look great in my home. I am a shell collector and I have just the place for it. I hope I win. I love your site.

  2. Wow, Vicki! I'm stunned! Thank you so much! And thank you to Aida. I'm thrilled! Truly!

    This photo by Elizabeth is charming and beautiful. Yes, it really conjures up a lovely day by the sea. And I'm so happy to learn about "A Beautiful Idea" and will definitely visit them and see about contributing.

    AND you have Alice tomorrow – I love her work and style. So many wonderful discoveries – love what you're doing here, Vicki. Have a great week!
