Blog Candy! New Stamps

Okay, here's an easy one: tell me where you're from!! I have a new "Stately Flowers" set coming out this Thursday, and if you live in one of the states included in December's set, you just might be one of the first to get "Stately Flowers 2"! :) Let me know below!

I'll announce a winner on Wednesday. In the event that none of you live in one of the four states I included, (which I highly doubt!), I just may have to pick someone randomly (maybe tell me where your family lives as back up, hee hee) :)

Sneak peek of one of the flowers on Gina's blog today! Can you tell what flower it is and what state it represents? (bonus entry) ;)

Ravengirl said...

Well, I live in Western Washington. I was born here and I just can't stray...although after long stretches of rain, I get the urge to travel to warmer climates. As for my family, most of them are here, except for the my little sister, who just moved to Florida!

By the way, I saw the peek of your flowers today and they sure are cute. I don't know what they are or what state they represent, so no bonus for me :)

Oh I love the Stately flowers, I'm from Calhoun, KY!! Thanks for the opportunity!!

Ravengirl said...

I did a little looking around and I will guess it is a Hawthorn, Missouri's state flower?

chrisd said...

Wild Prairie Rose from Iowa?
I now live in Michigan but I was born in Brooklyn, NY and lived in NJ before becoming a Michiganian.Thanks for the possibility of new stamps!

BishopsMommie said...

I am from White House, Tn.. I think its an Apple Blossom from Arkansas.. ant hoo very pretty!! Thanks for the chance for some of your awesome Artwork!!

Marsha said...

Born in Washington and still here. Fortunately for me, most of my family is here too. One daughter in California.
The sneak peak looks like apple blossoms to me and although it is not our State flower, we do grow a lot of apples here. In fact my sister and husband own an orchard and HUGE apple packing plants.
Thanks for the chance. Your drawings are beautiful.

Sue D said...

My guess is a Hawthorn for Missouri.

Donna said...

I'm living in Indiana but I was born and raised in Ohio and still have family there. Just returned from there from a Christmas visit. Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a blessed new year!

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

I'm from Indiana, and our flower is the Peony - aka the Century Plant. I think Gina's example is a dogwood from Virginia.
thanks for a chance to win!

Anita said...

I am in CA.

Yvette said...

I was born in No. Carolina, but I also lived in Arizona, California and now live in Washington. I have family in all of these states.
I think the flower in the sneak peek is a poppy if some kind.
I hope you had a great Christmas!!!

Terri E. said...

I am in IL, we have family in ND, VA, FL, TX and Maine. I really don't have a good guess for the sneak peak. I think many a dogwood, which I think is the state flower of Va.

It's a good life!

Sandie Luck said...

Minnesota is my home state, though I spent almost half my lifetime in middle and Eastern Tennessee! So I claim both!
This flower sneak peek reminds me of the Rose Of Sharon that I had growing in Tennessee. So lovely to have such a diverse collection of flora!

Joyce Batty said...

I'm from Elgin, TX and have no idea what the new flower is nor what state it represents. All I know is that it is beee-u-ti-ful.

Donna Phelan said...

I'm from Cape Cod Massachusetts....I am thinking that the states & flowers will be of the DT's states first.....so wherever you're all from! :) Got the Make A Statement set though as it was oh so cute! Merry Merry!

For the last 8 years I have lived in Iowa. Before that I lived in Indiana for 20 years. And for my first 43 years I lived in Illinois. I told my husband we are not going to try the other "I" state, esp. at our ages.

I was born in Davenport, Iowa. My parents moved all over and I have lived in New Jersey, South Carolina, Florida, Wisconsin and California before I was married. I lived in California for over 17 years, then we moved to New Mexico, Massachusets, Texas and back to California. In 1989 we moved to Orem, UT and finally, five years ago we moved to Billings, MT. We are hoping that this will be our final move as we are in our 70s now.

Woohoo! Thanks for the chance, Mel. Nice to win a little something AFTER the holiday hoopla dies down. I live in Florida and consider myself a Floridian, but hail from Pennsylvania originally, and almost all of my family lives there.

richardbreaks said...

Hi Melanie!! Hope you had a FANTASTIC Christmas! I was born in NJ, raised in FL, and spent most of my adult life in VA, before going to MI and then MA. Is that enough info?? LOL!

I would guess that the sneak peek is of MA arbutus!

Ok, I'm not much of a flower person but that sure looks like a Wild Prarie Rose and I'm from North Dakota, one of the states that has it as state flower so please pick me! Oh and my daughter lives in Montana, my son in Indiana, brother in MN.

KellyRae said...

Don't have a clue what flower was the sneak peek, but I know it's not the SC state flower (my birth state). I've also lived in NC, NH, CA, MI, OH, NY, and am now residing in AZ. Looking forward to seeing your Stately Flowers 2!

Judy I said...

Your flowers are all gorgeous. I've lived all my life in Missouri, so I'm hoping the sneak peak was a Hawthorne.

JKB said...

I see that Colorado's state flower made it into the first set. This flower looks like the Wild Prairie Rose and there are two species, one for Iowa and the leaves look like this one and the other for North Dakato. I live in Colorado and born in Nebraska. The military moved us to Ohio, Florida, Alabama and Virginia. As a child I lived in Arizona and still have family there.

Cynthia said...

I'd love to think that New Hampshire's beautiful Purple Lilac would be in your new set of Stately flowers. With Spring just around the corner, it would be a wonderful flower for my collection.
Thanks for the chance to win your charming stamps.

Elvira said...

I live in Washington State. Would love this set. Elvira

I am currently living in the Great state of TEXAS, althought I was born and raised in ARKANSAS, where my family still lives.

After looking at GinaK's sneak peek, I think it might be an apple blossom. Could be dogwood but they don't grow in tight clusters like that.

Sharon in Arizona said...

Well, Melanie, I live in ARIZONA but was born in OHIO where my extended family lives. Hugs, Sharon :o)

naneruth said...

naneruth said...

My guess on the flower pictured is - Viola the Illinois state flower.
