Today I’ve got a very special giveaway perfect for any nature-loving couple, whether engaged, long married, or even the only-recently-able-to-get-legally-wed.
Suwachi Tani — Sachie for short — at Wooden Pencil Co. is giving away a pair of two 11″x14″ lovebird prints, a $64 value, to a very lucky TPC reader. Printed on super-lush, 100% cotton premium archival matte fine art paper, her state bird series was carefully created over two years, interspersing vintage state maps with carefully rendered avian imagery. You can learn more about this Vermont artist and her amazing artistry here.
Each is signed and dated by Sachie, and based on the feedback she’s received, they add an artful, thought-provoking touch — infused with personal memories and histories — to any home:
“My husband and I will be (soon) celebrate our four- year anniversary. I am originally from Missoula, Mont., and my husband is from St. Cloud, Minn. We met at a wedding in Missoula where we then began long distance (dating) for over a year and a half. I eventually moved to Minnesota to be with him. When I saw this I knew it would be perfect, not only because of its uniqueness with the states (and customization), but also because my husband LOVES birds! Our house already has lots of décor that includes birds. When I saw this I felt like it was the perfect anniversary gift because it speaks to our story, while at the same time matches his interests. Thank you again so much for your time and special customization! I really appreciate it!” — Clara, Montana
“They are a wedding gift for my sister-in-law. She is from Idaho and her fiancé is from Alaska. They both love the outdoors and bird watching is a hobby of theirs too! These were a perfect find! They are moving right after their wedding and needed some wall art, so we thank you so much for this perfect gift to them”. — Stacia, Illinois
“This was a great wedding gift! The attention to detail in the art work is awesome! And just a unique concept! The gift arrived very quickly and very well packaged. This was a great gift as one of the people loves maps and the other birds, a combo gift that both can enjoy! LOVE IT! I’m going to buy one for myself now”.—TElbe
So whether you want to snag a set for yourself or a special couple, just enter your name, your location, and the two states you are interested in the comment box below. Sorry, no Alaska or Hawaii residents. I will be announcing a winner chosen at random late tomorrow. Thank you so much, Sachie, and good luck, all you lovebirds!
