What can be a better remedy for a gray Spring day, than a colorful pair of jeans & a happy floral print top? Not much, methinks. (Except maybe the chance to win some cool stuff!

  • Amanda - Awesomeness! I liked you on Facebook and followed ya on Twitter. Congrats on 1000 likes!ReplyCancel

  • Elena Marques - Wow, congrats on the 1,000 (I’m already a fan)! You must be thrilled!

  • Jennifer (Deleted Space Creative) - Well, Sarah and Hannah didn’t follow #3, so I’m pretty sure that means I win, right? Because I would hang them on the wall just to the right of my desk in our new house! Perfecto! ;)ReplyCancel

  • Alison Mish - Congrats on getting 1,000 likes…that’s awesome! I have “liked” your page and just started following you on twitter! Love your blog :) I could totally see these frames hanging up in our kitchen or bedroom of my husband and my new house. We close and move in on the 21st!ReplyCancel

  • Meghan H. - Yay for hitting 1000! I already follow you. :)ReplyCancel

  • Prayse Dangler - Yay for 1,000 likes! #1 & 2 – check. Already a follower and liker! =) as for 3 – We just moved to a house, and we now have TONS of wallspace that needs more pictures … These frames would be perfect going up our stairs… or in our sunroom/office =)ReplyCancel

  • Ashley@AttemptsAtDomestication - They would look super cute in our guest room, or living room… ;)ReplyCancel

  • Laurajane - that’s so exciting that you have 1,000 fans. your work is awesome so you totally deserve it. i’ve been following your facebook page for quite awhile now, but now i’m following you on twitter too (even though i never go on twitter haha.) i would put the frames in the space of my room where i have my bed. there are angled ceilings and the straight part of the wall is only 3 feet tall so hanging photos on a angled part just doesn’t work and hanging anything larger than a frame this size on the straight part would look kind of stupid. so i was planning on printing out my instgram photos, and they’d look so cute in the frames.ReplyCancel

  • Ervina - Already liked but this is a fabulous giveaway nonetheless. :)ReplyCancel

  • Rachel - I started following you on twitter. I already follow you on Facebook. We still love our wedding pics. Thanks so much!ReplyCancel

  • Simply Vintagegirl - What a pleasant way to celebrate! I’ve already liked Marvelous Things Photography and have just now started to follow.

    The frames (filled with joyful pictures new and old) would be perfect in my vintage room… or on my new-to-me studio desk. Thanks for the giveaway, Tori!ReplyCancel

  • Kelley Kossan - I’m already a fan of course! :) I have a wall of mirrors in my bedroom, and the frames would totally fit perfect there!ReplyCancel

  • Anna-Lisa - I’ve been following you on facebook for a while – does that count as enough since I don’t use twitter at all? The frames are adorable, I can definitely see them in my hallway or above the dining room table!ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth Johnson - I’d put them up in my new home after I get married this Summer!ReplyCancel

  • sarah der - Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Done and done, and I think I might put these little beaut’s above my desk, and put fun lovely pictures in them so every once in a while I can glance up and see pictures of mysweetnephew/mycat/thehusband/awesomefriends/you get my drift. :)ReplyCancel

  • Alyssa - Followed and liked! I would put them above husband’s and I’s bed I think (:
    Hooray on the 1,000 likes!!ReplyCancel

  • Karen Allen - YAY!!!! Huge congrats on the 1000 likes!!! So awesome! And those frames? Holy jamoly, I am loving those! Even though we’ve lived in our house for 2 years our walls are still dreadfully plain…those would liven up any room! But I think I would steal them away for my office. :)ReplyCancel

  • Bethany S - I wish I could LIKE Janelle’s comment. hahaha. LOVE YOU TORI! Congrats on 1000!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Morgan - I liked your fb and twitter pages! I love those frames! I can totally see them hanging by my bedroom door with pictures of friends in them!ReplyCancel

Cheers & THANKS for sharing your WONDERFUL talent & this fun giveaway with us!!ReplyCancel

  • Julia - Done, and done! What a wonderful way to celebrate 1000 likes, that is pretty amazing!

    What would I do with the frames? I painted a mural of a silhouette tree on my wall last year but haven’t decided what to put up around it. The frames would look perfect! However, it might actually turn into a wonderful mothers day present ;)ReplyCancel

  • Wardrobe Wednesday | Colored Pants & Floral Tops » Marvelous Things Photography | Blog - […] floral print top? Not much, methinks. (Except maybe the chance to win some cool stuff!

  • Andrea P - Hi Tori! I love your wardrobe Wednesday photo shoots – so fresh and fun. I just followed and liked you and would love to win this give away! :) I’m about to move into a new townhouse with a friend and think these would be a fun way for us both to frame some of our fav pics in a cohesive way and display them together – maybe above the couch in the living room or in the half bath on the main floor? I’m sure they would look great anywhere! Hope you are doing well in VA. :)ReplyCancel

  • Jennoelle - Congrats on reaching 1,000! Can’t say I’m surprised…your work is simply stunning. (: I’ve long liked your facebook page AND followed you on twitter, so I suppose I’m all set! I can see putting the frames somewhere with my own photography in it–maybe my room, maybe somewhere else. We’ll see. ;)ReplyCancel

  • Jessica Hunt - Tori,

    I just moved into an apartment in the big city away from my family and am running my business from there. I would LOVE to have these frames decorating my living/businessrunning/relaxing space. :)ReplyCancel

I CANNOT believe it’s already May, guys. Seriously?! This year is flyyyying by, and I’m not sure I’m ok with that! I’m especially not ok with the amount of things that went unaccomplished on my list for April. But, sometimes that’s how life is. April was still a great (& busy!) month with a lot […]
