Ms. Consummate Hostess, I am so thrilled that you are hosting this giveaway! I adore Tim Irving's work and could stare at his creations all day long and truly love so many of them.

I think my favorite is the Old Railroad Crossing. It allows you think "where am I going" or "Where should I head today?" My son also loves trains and railroads and we always enjoy looking at different railroad pictures.

Thank you again for hosting this. Have a fantastic day!

I am going to choose "Long May You Run"....the little pink Fiat 500....perfect for our home...my colour and my husband LOVES those cars!!!

Great post!

MG said...

So hard to choose a favorite! I do like the Mechanical Whisk. It looks like it would be fun to have in the kitchen!

I had a framed photo that resembled the Provence photo forever and just had to get rid of it because it was ruined in my move from SF to Boston, so that is my choice! Thanks for introducing me to his work…what beautiful photographs! -carlee

I love ripe red, the cherries look so yummy! Great giveaway!

Headbands and Hand Bags said...

I have seen his prints before, they are fantastic! I would love to be added! I am a sucker for anything French, and The Joy of Life France would be dreamy!

My Notting Hill said...

My favorite was First Arrival - although it was hard to narrow it down to one!

an aqua juel said...

My favorite is the Provence print! So beautiful.

mint juleps and magnolias said...

Oh my goodness. I can't decide. I think the African Kitchenalia is my favorite...

What a terrific give a way to start our week CH. Reflection & infinity and Golden Years are my two favorites. My eldest daughter loves Marmite & my husband loves Golden Syrup - reminds me of them dearly. I love Tim's photography for it's subject matter & vibrant colors.

Have a great Monday!

This man is so talented! I actually love each and every one. But, somehow the "Ballroom 1977" with it's contrasting colors just makes my heart sing.

I love "Over the Garden Fence" and "Devotion to the Ocean". All are amazing, but these are the ones that speak to me the most! Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway...

jen said...

They are all so lovely, but I think the Carousel is my favorite!

anita said...

Nicole Leigh said...

I adore the Joy of Life Paris picture!

endrase said...

Just last week, I received "The Road Between Limoges and Cognac" and I love it. It is so serene and delicate. I am also crazy for "Carousel 1970." It is next on my list.

Carole said...

Being a follower of his blog, I do enjoy his photography.

Choosing out of the ones listed on his Etsy site, I'd have to say that French Landscape with Poppies is my very favorite. I just love the vibrant orange/red of the poppy, as well as the TTV look of it. A close second would be The Night Florist.

Thank you for a chance to win!

Simply Mel said...

I love everything Tim captures with his camera!

It is so difficult to choose a favorite, but the Flamenco dresses are on my wish list!

KT Mac said...

Tim is a very talented photographer and his blog is an interesting read. It's a hard choice, but if I had to choose just one of his fabulous prints, I would go with the one of the bicycle from Provence.

Her name was Lola said...

How exciting. I love a good giveaway. And my pick is your pick! The first photograph in that brilliant red mobile (it so reminds me of living in London!)

Cheers.

Jennifer Poppy said...

I love so many of his photos, but this is one of my faves: African Kitchenalia...

Carey said...

Love Tim Irving's photos (found you through his website). I would so love a copy of "Carousel 1970."

Kassie said...

These are all so gorgeous, I love them!! My favorite would have to be the Provence, France 1999 photo with the blue bike and flowers. :)

Wonderful idea. I'm most drawn to the Embrace, French Cherry Tree. It's elegant, whimsical and makes me want to be daydreaming under it!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. I look forward to reading yours daily :)

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Amazing! I would love any of his photos (and indeed, choosing a fave was almost impossible) but I can't get over the "Long May You Run - Little Fiat Car."

Fingers crossed!

Julia said...

There are too many to choose. I love the zebras, the ferris wheel, the birds, the leaves... It's too hard.

Laura said...

The Night Florist is my hands-down favorite! I'm so glad you chose it to headline your post. Beautiful! and so human.

Mrs. LC said...

Such a great giveaway! I love his work. It's hard to pick but I think French Landscape with Poppies is my favorite - the red pop of color is so striking!

Basil Becky said...

I love them all but I really loved

Devotion to the Ocean!

Eva said...

Ah, what are the odds I'd win? Mr. Irving has plenty of exquisite photographs and counting but the first one that strikes me the most is Goldfinch in a Cage.
