Ohh- I love everything in your etsy shop! but... my favorites have to be... the polaroid one, the ferris wheel, eggs, and the cherries! (okay... I know thats a lot- but... i just couldnt pick one!)

Kellie said...

My favorite is "from down below". It just has such a Utah feel to it, and although I'm from CA I LOVE Utah in the fall!

And I'm SOOOO thankful for my family!

Britney said...

I'd say either the Temple, the ferris wheel or the bowl of cherries! I can't pick just one either! :)
I am Thankful for my husband, children and my faith!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
I've got my fingers crossed!

dust and kam are hoping to adopt! said...

really? I have to chose my most favorite? There are so many!

I really want "nest" for my kitchen. But there are many more favorites.

I am thankful to finally be feeling a little but better after 2+ weeks of being sick. It has been slow in coming, but a welcomed arrival.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Dustyn said...

I love your work. The shapes and lines of "i love polaroid" remind me of Duchamp's cubistic period.

I am thankful for my beautiful wife that is perfect in every way for me.

afternoon -- because i want to eat that muffin!

pink -- because it's bright and makes me smile.

dock -- because i'm in love with water.

This year I'm particularly thankful for laughter, and the opportunity to share it with my family and friends.

I love the one with the cherries. Such pretty colors.

Today, I am particularly thankful that I have everything clean. Dishes, laundry and toys, all put in their place. Now I can relax.

my name is lauren. said...

my favorites are a tie between "summer" (the ferris wheel one) and "glass". both are quite lovely.

something i am thankful for is the ability to laugh and be silly with my husband. he always helps me forget the stresses of the day with a laugh.

Jackie Norris said...

Yey, a giveaway! I love all of your work, but I think my favorite is "nest," just such a simple lovely feel to it.

I am thankful for photos!

Josh and Kandice said...

I love your pictures. My favorites (cause I couldn't just pick one) are from down below, the temple, head in the clouds and pink and green.

I'm thankful for my family, my husband, my faith and the trials in my life for making me work and try that much harder to get the things I want so badly.

I hope you and your adorable family have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Marie said...

My favorites are the cherries, the eggs, the Temple, the sky, the yellow tree and the red leaves. If by some odd chance i win, I will narrow it down to one choice. :)
This week I am thankful for an amazing husband who loves me all the time. :)

Kenny said...

I love the temple (and the picture of it, too)!

I'm grateful for being able to travel up to Sacramento tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with my family.

Burk Family said...

I love "glass" and I'm thankful I started reading your blog and got into photography myself!

christin said...

Halley Morrison said...

I like the summer ferris wheel one!! So classic.

jenilynd said...

I have two favorites. Pink and summer. And I am thankful for my kiddos. And u am hoping I win!!!

Kristen H said...

Hey there, My favorites are "first snow" and "head in the clouds". Because it reminds me of laying on the beach when I was younger and looking up at the summer sky!

I'm thankful for family and quality time. With deployments you need to take advantage of every minute you have with each other!

Jenn Krogue said...

pink and green, ,love it.
i'm thankful for handmixers to make holiday cooking easier!! ps i'm jealous of yours. i've been wanting to splurge on that kitchen aid, but can't talk myself into it yet.

MSGottfredson said...

I like them all! But I really like the B is for Barn!

lisa said...

I love all the polaroids and love the postcard idea! Thankful for family and that it hasn't snowed quite yet in my neck of the woods.

monica said...

Wow- that was quick. Thanks for the giveaway! Ok- I love the tree one. And the Ferris Wheel. And the Water. So... I will take any of them.

I am thankful for so many things, but basically it all includes my family. I am also thankful that we live in Europe and are able to travel so much. Dresden for Thanksgiving, Switzerland for Christmas, not sure about New Years yet, plus many many more vacations planned!

Shannon said...

I am in love with the "life is like a bowl of cherries." I want to hang it in my red kitchen. I also love your photo of the temple. I need one of those too. :)

I am thankful for my family, of course, especially since some of them are here in Utah with me! I am also thankful for my new jeans, a working furnace, and good health.

Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Rūta Elzė said...

My fave is 'at rest--fine art polaroid print' and i am thankful for a beautiful fog this week :)

gram said...

I like the 'Glass' picture... many of those bottles we have or used to have. .. also am still partial to the 'punkins'...

the crew said...

I love them all- I think I'd pick the ferris wheel- though I'd hang any of them in my home!

I am so thankful for my wonderful husband and our three crazy kids.

Have a delightful Thanksgiving!!

Mandi Arrington said...

I love, love love the glass picture or the bicycle one.

I am so thankful for job security. And I am grateful for a sweet and wonderful family.

Happy Turkey Day!

Marla said...

flowers in the vase.

Maureen said...

The SLC Temple, and that is what Im thankful for, I was married there!! Beautiful pictures, all of them..

Nicole Faby said...

My favorite is.... Life is-- So sweet!

Rachel said...

From down below is my favorite! I love fall and living in Arizona, we don't get those beautiful fall colors that I love! I am thankful for my sweet family and that we're back together again! Happy Thanksgiving!

kristin said...

OK, I'll be honest - I can't pick a favorite. The tie is between number 3, b is for barn, and pink and green. It's hard to choose when I love your photography style.

This year I am thankful for the chance to buy our own house and move out of my in-laws' house (where we've been living for the past 5 months). Nothing makes you appreciate your husband and child(ren) like moving in with TWO other families.

dave, catie, and baby "b" said...

"life is"

i love your
work oh so
much as well!

i'm thankful
for my wonderful
husband and

super baby!

eve said...

I like them all but I really like the bowl of cherries. I am thankful that I get to be with my mom right now and help her out. Love the giveaway!!!

Ale said...

I tried to narrow it down to 2... The Fall Feet & the Pink are both quite stunning!

I am grateful for the smell of my fiance. My family is in TX and I live in Atlanta. Although I won't see them this week, when I dig my face into my fiance's neck to kiss it, it smells like "home." A different type of home. One I'll be smelling till' I'm old and gray!

hays said...

yay!!!

i'm grateful for yummy babies.

i love the temple, glass, and nest.

thanks for the giving sheena!

Magen said...

today i am thankful for happy memories...

I am loving your 'summer' print...just lovely!

Becky Bean said...

My really most super favorite is the pink flowers. I'd love a series of three to hang in my daughter's room, and one is a good start!!

Becky Bean said...

Oh yeah, I forgot...I'm thankful for vacuum cleaners--because imagine trying to clean carpets without them! And also I am very thankful foor cozy blankets!

Lizzz said...

My favorite is the picture you used for this entry! And I don't think I saw it in your shop. Sad face! It's sooo beautiful and fresh! :)

Have a happy Thanksgiving!!!

Katie said...

Desta said...

I think my favorite is "red." And this week I'm grateful for friends who are willing to put up with me during the holidays since we are so far away from family.

brooke said...

pink flowers! pick me!

Lulu A. Hardman said...

My favorite of yours is 'Life is'. I love Rainer Cherries! And I love your blog. You are SO TALENTED!!! :)

P.S.- I'm thankful for my husband. Two years ago today I went out on a -nervous butterflies in my stomach for the first time ever-date with him, and One year ago today, he proposed. We have been happily married ever since July of this year! :)

Kylie said...

all of your pictures are so beautiful!! but my favorites involve your shoes - I LOVE "red and green"!

This week I'm thankful for two extra days off of school.. gotta love those holiday breaks!!
ps. thanks for the polaroid advice you've given me... I bought that thing and had NO idea if it was working... :)

tanalicious said...

hmmmm.. its so hard to choose! i'd say the bowl of cherries, number 3, at rest, or nest. but, i mean really.. making us choose? thats just plain ole mean.

and i'm thankful for good health, and the new tutorial i found for fabric flowers!

Jill said...

I love the picture of the Salt Lake temple! My husband, daughter and I were sealed there last year.

And I'm thankful for temples and brownies.

RENEE said...

My Favorite is Pink and Green.

Well it's hard to say what I am thankful for. I guess, I am thankful for being a able to survive a single MoM's world, able to survive each morning of getting two beautiful kids up every morning and finding the lost shoe so we can make it to school on time. I am thankful to be able to have a job that provides for them and most of all thankful for being able to surpass all of my past Earthquakes since being divorced and making it one more year with just the three of us. So, Overall I am thankful that I have two beautiful kiddos that keep me going and we share a tremendous love for one another.


Your work is absolutely fantastic.

Always the fan and a Happy Thanksgiving to your family

Renee

Susanne said...

ALL your pictures are gorgeous! But if I had to pick just one... it would be "pink" (although I LOOOOOVE "summer" and "nest" nad "from down below" and "number 3" and all the rest!).
I am thankful for my family and for the internet (how did we ever live without it? Seriously!)

torrey said...

a giveaway?!!...holy awesomeness! i completely heart "glass" and "pink."

i'm thankful for oooodles and oodles of things...but particularly my new kitchenaid mixer. i will be able to bake with love this holiday season like never before...aka make lots of chocolatey goodness to stuff in my mouth and give to loved ones. i've wanted one for YEARS and finally found the perfect deal. merry xmas to me.

lorelie said...

Having us pick just ONE favorite is a near impossibility for me! I think mine must be the picture of the maple leaves, then the pink & green, the ferris wheel, then head in the clouds! Because I can't decide is why I haven't purchased yet =]

hmm....I'm grateful for many things, but I'll have to say I'm grateful for the advancement in medicine - even though I HATE diabetes and the fact that my 8 year old has it, I'm profoundly grateful that she has insulin in her cute bubble gum pink pump that allows her body to stay as healthy as possible. That's a miracle.

Ashleigh said...

I can't decide between the pumpkins, cherries or the salt lake temple. Love them all. I am most thankful for my family. Generic I know, but I just can't help but be obsessed with them.

Janelle. said...

I agree with most everyone else...I can't choose. But if I HAD to, it would be between the pumpkins and "don't step on a crack." Very creative, very different, I really like them all. Don't tell, but of all the zillions of photography blogs I go through constantly, you are still my favorite. Oh, and you really have no idea who I am...kinda weird, but whatever...we all do it right?

And I am Thankful for too many things!! That I can have babies...even though I'm feeling green...I have a healthy heart, lungs, legs, etc that allow me to run, I have one handsome husband and good lookin' son...and so on...

Maggie said...

I am thankful for the wonderful loving and supporting family and friends God has blessed me with. I am also thankful for pumpkin pie! =)

Nicole Jones said...

My favorite is "from down below". It's beautiful! Since today is my daughters 2nd birthday, I'm thankful for her and the happiness she has brought to me and my husband. :)

Lilly said...

My favorite is summer-original fine art polaroid photograph. I'm obsessed with both Ferris wheels AND Polaroid shots. :)

There are lots of things I'm thankful for; my family, my friends. Music, life. Breathing. :) I've been in excellent moods lately, so I'm grateful for everything. :)))

Moody Family said...

so hard to choose!!! I am going with number3 :)

Tana said...

I love "from down below" and I also love the "first snow" on your I saw today... it should be in your etsy shop.
I'm so thankful for my faith, friends, family, and being able to stay home until the begining of January on maternity leave- with that being said I love the grunt sounds that newborns make!

i am thankful for technology...airplanes and cell phones and internet...which keeps me connected to my family, and especially my parents (living in Kuwait!).

Bri said...

I think I'll have to pick "Life is-". It will look perfect when we re-do our kitchen!

I am thankful for so many things. Mostly my husband, house and baby on the way!

Brittany said...

My favorite is the glass bottles (I collect antique bottles) and the beach with the lifeguard stand. Today I am thankful for my son finally falling asleep with out climbing out of his crib.

Your shop is adorable!
