Picture me, the lucky winner!

Oh happy day! I entered a contest and won!!

Stasha B. Photography recently ran a contest to give away a photo of the winner's choosing. The contest, posted on her blog The Good Life, was a way of celebrating the launch of her new photography business and a way of saying thank-you to the fans that encouraged her to do so.

I'm one of Stasha's biggest fans. I first discovered her through her blog, where she shares the story of her life with a very cute boy, Little J, and an especially regal dog, Big M. Check out her 365 project, which offers one photo for each day of the year to tell her story.

If you're a blogger, be sure to take part in Stasha's Monday Listicles link up. It's highly addictive.

Stasha is a very talented photographer and I'm so happy that she decided to share her talent. I chose my favourite of her photos, which was difficult to do, and entered the contest. You can view her selection of limited edition, signed prints here. I can't tell you how excited I was to find out that I won!!

Guess which one I picked?

Alright, I won't make you wait any longer. Here it is, framed and ready to hang!

The photo is called "Under the Dock". Beautiful, yes? And now? It's mine! All MINE! Okay, you can have one too, but don't wait too long. This is a limited edition print. My photo doesn't do Stasha's work justice, I'm afraid. Take a look at it on her website, Stasha B. Photography, check out the rest of her amazing photos, and pick your own favourite!

Thank-you so much, Stasha!!


  1. So you're the one who robbed me of my win! I should've known it was you.

    Congratulations...it's beautiful!

  2. dangnabbit! that's the one I liked!! fooey. but okay, okay...I promise not to come over and try to steal it. But only b/c I live in another country.

  3. You girls, I am so blushing. I love the frame you chose! Thank you so much for the coolest, neatest and warmest shout out ever.
    Honest if I had the resources I would send you all the photos you chose. When I make it big, I promise I will.

  4. Sorry Jacqui. Sorry Deborah. Blame it on the power of random selection. :)

    I would be even happier if I had won and everyone else had won too. I hate that when someone wins someone else loses - always have, always will. BUT, I shall enjoy my prize nonetheless because it is truly beautiful and will look fabulous hanging on my wall. When I see it I will think of the fabulous Stasha B.

    Stasha, I'm so happy and excited for you, and will send people your way whenever I can. You're a brilliant photographer and a kind and joyful human to boot! Thank-you again!

  5. Congrats. That's a gorgeous shot. I, too, had a really hard time choosing just one in order to enter the contest! Stasha's photography is BEAUTIFUL.

  6. Congrats Sue! That was one of my favourites but I chose the Ferris WHeel. You are one lucky winner indeed! :)

  7. Aw man, you are SO lucky!! That's the photo I picked too!! I'm going to have to buy it now. ;)

  8. Amanda, thanks. You're right, they're all so beautiful. I would have been so thrilled with any of Stasha's photos.

    Thanks G. I like that one too!

    Jen, great minds... as they say. :) Love, LOVE this photo.

  9. Woo! Grats on winning! It is absolutely gorgeous.
