Anniversary + A GIVEAWAY!

 This weekend is the 1st anniversary of Lilac and Grey. I can not believe it has been a whole year since I started this "blogging thing." It has brought me more joy then I can ever imagine, and the comments and e-mails that I receive daily truly make me so HAPPY. I have met so many people from all over the world and has opened up my eyes to many different views and perspectives.  To thank you all for being such wonderful, fabulous, inspirational readers...it is time for a GIVEAWAY!


I am excited to announce that I am partnering with the wonderful Ana from Anek's Etsy Shop to give away one of these cutie patootie "Tea Time" prints!


Ana is a graphic designer and illustrator who works and lives in a town called Zagreb, Croatia. All illustrations are originally made by her, in both the traditional and digital paint mediums.

Here are the rules for entering this giveaway:

Head over to Ana's shop Anek on Etsy, and tell us in the comments section, which piece of Ana's work is your favorite. You can also add where you would put your print if you win!

For an extra entry blog or tweet about this giveaway. Please leave a separate comment letting me know you did!  

You also must be a follower of Lilac and Grey

Giveaway ends on October 21st, 2010, at midnight.

The winner will be drawn at random and announced October 22, 2010.

  14. Happy Anniversary. My desk sits right in front of a window that overlooks the rustic street we live on as well as the mountains in the distance. In fact, I am watching the sunrise right now. I find this view very inspiring as you must with your beach location. couldnt imagine a desk facing a boring wall! (love the skull pic)

  38. Hi Cara! I just tweeted. :) I actually don't want to be part of the giveaway, the product is fantastic - but I'd hate to give up a chance for a reader who really really wants to win, but I do think the artist is absolutely fabulous so I wanted to promote it with my readers as well! Thanks for stopping by my blog today too!! i am now following you too :) wow - long comment.

  41. HI Cara,

    I love Ana's work,especially 4 SEASONS / Eat Seasonal Print SET - 4 prints.Since I am moving to the new house,my kitchen will be all white in cottage style and that print would be a perfect addition to my walls.I am Croatian like Ana,and it would be a honor have something Croatian-made in my American house.
    Congratulations on your anniversary! Wish you many more with many sales!
