~custom pet portrait giveaway~

So, there is this lady, this artist, named Lesli Devito. 
I started reading her blog months and months ago because it made me so happy.
She used these fun yet calming colors in her rooms, colors that, if I were brave, would use myself.







Gorgeous right?
Yep, if  I was brave, I would paint my house and decorate with these fun colors too.
She's gifted, I tell ya.

Then one day I realized that not only is she a gifted decorator, but she is a real life artist and the most
amazing painter.
Check out some of her work:

{and it's not limited to pets!}







This girl bleeds talent I am pretty sure.

Back in November, Lesli emailed me wondering if she could have my address so she could send me a Christmas card.
So, I gave it to her and forgot about it.

Several weeks later I came home to find a package on my doorstep.
I opened it up and cried.
Cried like a baby for a good 45 minutes,
then I cried some more.


Sneaky gal that she is, wasn't needing my address for a Christmas card, she had painted a picture of our beloved Harley that disappeared in August. 
She found the photo on my blog and painted it from there.

I cannot tell you how much this looks like Harley. My husband honestly had a hard time even looking at it because it is so dead on. 
My daughters friends said that the woman who painted this surely has Harley because it looks so much like him!

It was one of the sweetest gestures ever, and I will treasure my painting forever.

Well, now it's your turn.
Lesli has graciously offered a custom pet portrait for a my sweet savannah reader!
She is giving away a 16 x 16 painting valued at $390.00.

Not only does she paint dogs, but any animal.
Horses, chickens, pigs, cats, you name it, she can paint it.

Please read the instructions carefully as there are several chances to win this.
You must include your email address if you do not have a blog that links back to one.

You must leave a separate comment for each entry on this post.

Entry #1~ Follow Lesli's blog, my old country house

Entry #2~Like my old country house on Facebook 

Entry #3~Follow her on twitter

Entry #4~ follow Lesli on Pinterest

Entry #5~ Pin any image from this post

That is 5 different chances to win!
{shipping to US and Canada only please}

I will pick a winner on Friday and announce back here.

Happy Monday friends!

xoxo

My scruffy dog is blind and deaf and very old. Not sure how much longer we will have him. He has been the best rescue dog we have ever had. We got him in 2006 advised not to by the vet as he had so many problems. I said I would cut out my mocha's everyday to take care of him, we decided if it was just a day, month, year we would give him the best we could. Story behind it is he had given us so much more. Thanks for the chance.

I read your blog post this morning and have been boobin' like a baby all day. I write this not to be considered a recipient of the giveaway but simply to express my profound respect for the beautiful example of human spirit shown by Lesli DeVito. This loving gift of kindness and compassion, given to you and your family during a time of such devastating loss, takes my breath away. Thank you so much for sharing.

I absolutely love that she did this painting for you. This is a woman who paints from the heart. I too cried when I saw the painting of Harley because his story has just haunted me. Thank you for the link to her and her art. I am following her now on Pintrest and her blog, pinned Harley on one of my boards, liked her on FB too. Thank you for the chance to win a portraite of our sweet old boy, Orrin. He looks a lot like Harley.
