Giveaway: Grain & Silk

Hello everybody. :) I hope you are well! Thank you all for your comments, for reading (even in silence), you all rock! And because you do, I have a little something special for you today!

... Swimming in the warm ocean... 
... flying high above the clouds... 
... a snow-white dove bringing peace... 
... absolute freedom...

Sound good? Yes, I thought so, too.

That's why I am very excited to host a giveaway by the lovely, gorgeous, and brilliant photographer,  
Katarina Krizanovicova, to celebrate the opening of her new etsy shop:  

I could write paragraph upon paragraph about how much I love her photography. 
Her photographs are human, they are beautiful, they are dreamlike, ethereal, feminine; 
they are like a steaming cup of tea on a cold day or a cold breath of air on a hot summer day... 
I have a few of her prints at my home, and every time I look at them they bring me happiness 
(and a feeling of peace).

If you think I'm exaggerating, look at this: 
(I think this photo speaks for itself:)

And guess what? She is giving one print away for free, to one of you!
(I think that's awfully nice.)

For a chance to win one print of your choice, 
all you need to do is go to her shop and then leave a comment on this post, 
telling me which print you'd like to win. 

Anybody from anywhere in the world can participate, 
just make sure you leave some sort of a name or initial, so I can identify you! :)

You have time to enter until Wednesday, October 13th, 12:00 pm (EEST). 
The winner will be drawn randomly by me and announced on Thursday, October 14th 
(so be sure to check back).

[Please note that you have to leave a comment on this post to qualify.]

Edit: At no point will you have to give out your personal details, like name and address, to me.
The winner will e-mail her info directly to Katarina.

Good luck everyone!

Ihr Lieben, ich danke Euch für Eure Kommentare, Eure Hallos, Eure Worte. 
Sorry, dass ich nicht öfters auf deutsch schreibe (aber ich versuch's).
Weil ich Euch so toll finde, habe ich heute auch etwas ganz Besonderes für Euch:
Ein Giveaway von einer genialen Fotografin aus der Slovakei, in deren Werk ich verliebt bin.

Ihre Fotos sind menschlich, himmlisch, feminin. Traumähnlich. 
Wie ein heisser Tee an kalten Tagen, oder eine kühle Briese in der heissen Sommerluft.
(Wenn Ihr jetzt denkt ich übertreibe, dann schaut sie Euch doch an, die Bilder!)

Sie heisst Katarina Krizanovicova und sie hat einen neuen Etsy shop aufgemacht: 

Und um diesen zu feiern, will Sie eins Ihrer Fotos an Euch verschenken!
(Nett, oder?)

Um ein Foto Eurer Wahl zu gewinnen braucht ihr nur in ihrem neuen Shop vorbeischauen, 
und mir in einem Kommentar unter diesem Post sagen, 
welches Ihrer Fotos Ihr gerne gewinnen würdet.
Dazu habt Ihr bis Mittwoch, den 13. Oktober, 12:00 mittags (EEST), Zeit.

Der Gewinner wird ausgelost und dann am Donnerstag (den 14.) bekanntgegeben.

Alle mitmachen und viel Glück!

All pictures: © Katarina Krizanovicov.

The giveaway is now closed. Thank you all for participating!

she is good!
This is hard but I choose the 'Frozen'.
(I had have difficulties to comment but I don't know why. I still love reading your posts)

Unknown said...

I choose blue mood, though it was a though call between shh. Awesome photos. You should do one of your photos Isa, there's been few on your blog that I would love to have on my wall!

Nina said...

So hard to decide between Blue Mood and Winter Light... but I chose Blue Mood because of it's touch of purple which I think my fiancé would also prefer.

Pamela said...

Oh, it's so difficult to pick but I think I would choose Flight. Thank you Isa, and Katarina for a lovely giveaway!

lilla a said...

So beautiful all of them... You want to walk right into everyone of them. If I have to pick one, maybe travel or shh. Travel.

Franziska Patterson said...

Urgh...I agree. I like a lot of those prints. Well, if I win (which I won't because the best thing I've ever won was a plastic bag), I'd like 'Shh'.

Can Henry enter as well?

Franziska Patterson said...

ok, somehow I can't sign out here, and have Henry sign in. So, I'll just tell you.

Henry's vote goes to 'Walk'.

Unknown said...

Well, I'll be honest, I came here after reading about Katarina's giveaway on her blog.....and how glad am I to have found you? I've just sat and read through some of your posts, and you have a lovely, honest way of expressing yourself and beautiful images. I shall be back for more!

As for the giveaway, they are all lovely but I think travel is my fave :-)

Jude said...

I love peeking here from time to time, and happy you continue to blog :) I agree, her work is breathtaking! Hard to choose just one favorite, but Shh probably tops the list.

Signe said...

What a great giveaway!
I'd love to hang the 'Winter Light' above my bed, it's just amazing :)

the sleepy time gal said...

mäemamma said...

I think "Blue Mood" would do me loads of good :-)


What a fabulous contest and a gorgeous blog you have! Thank you so much for stopping by mine and leaving such a sweet comment :)

I love all of her work but if I had to choose one, I'd go with "Silk" It's so delicate and feminine and beautiful.

jeanette from everton terrace said...

I came by the thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog and lucky me - I find a wonderful giveaway! It would be hard to pick a favorite but the "shh" photo is gorgeous!

Jo said...

What a lovely giveaway! 'Honey' really speaks to me. It has a very exotic feel that makes me want to know more.

Lisa Gordon said...

They are all gorgeous, but I think my favorite is "Reading Time."
Wonderful giveaway!

Oh! All are SO beautiful. My favourite is probably that "Blue Mood" but it was really hard to choose.

And I DO SO love your blog!

flowing moments said...

Irene said...

It is a tough choice because there are so many beautiful photos but as I have to choose only one, I have to say "Frozen". And thanks for the great giveaway!

elflyn said...

Such amazing work.
I found it so very difficult to choose but I think I would have to pick Autumn Still Life or Shh.
Thank you both for the opportunity to win a print.

Nicki said...

I love "Walk!" :]

Karen D said...

Great Giveaway - I would love to hang this one in my new studio room.
"Sea of Tranquility"

Patywah said...

Isa, congratualtions on your blog and on having this giveaway to celebrate Katarina's return to Etsy.

I'm such a big fan of her work. It's difficult to select just one but "WInter Light" seems to be calling me right now.

Take care,


Ameli K. said...

I'd like "Shh." Thank you!

Katja said...

I found myself here from lilla a`s blogg and what I find here!! Such a lovely giveaway....Collection - makes me to dream back to our summer cottage. So that´s my choice!

Melford said...

Die Fotos sind wirklich schön. Auf was man nicht alles zufällig stößt wenn man bei Facebook rumsurft. Am schönsten war das Bild: Shh - 8 x 8.

Viele liebe Grüße


Stine said...

Stine said...

Fine said...

Hi, thanks for the giveaway.

My favorite is Honey.

Anonymous said...

and a typo in my previous comment. it should have been "so beautiful ALL of them!" i must learn to read through my comments before clicking "post comment"...

Anonymous said...

hallo! :)

da mach ich natürlich auch gerne mit!...
(obwohl ich prinzipiell NIE irgendwo etwas gewinne..:D)

Blue mood ist mein Favorit!

Liebe Grüße, Anna

Khali said...

Gosh, it's so hard to choose but I think I'd select Above if I won. I'm planning to redecorate our bedroom and one of these prints would be a perfect addition.

Minna said...

Rain that´s my favorite !

Ariane Reichardt said...

Schöner Blog! Deiner und auch von Katarina K.
Mein Favorit ist: "Hebarium I - Ivory"
Grüße von Ariane.

Earny from Earncastle said...

really beautiful. I chose Blue Mood! thanks a lot. :)

Kate said...

'Shhh' would be my pick, it's just gorgeous. Although, like Fran, I never win anything. :)

Helen said...

What a lovely give-a-way. My favourite is Coral. They are all so beautiful, but I've been dreaming of decorating my sewing room and this would be perfect.

Kati said...

Shhh is my favourite too :) And I love your photos also.

Etefel said...

I'm in between Green House II and North West. How to choose. I'll go for the Green House II.

Anonymous said...

I would go with Mirror :)


Galia Alena said...

I've ummed and uhhed, I love fragile, soft skin and autumn still life- I would let the lovely Katarina pick from those for me.
How is your new little one going Isa?

Galia Alena said...

On reflection- between Fragile and Autumn Still Life.
