A Dusty Attic {Giveaway}

*Update* Congrats to the winners Christina (crazystina24@hotmail.com) and Lora Lynn @ Vitafamiliae!

I love today's giveaway! It's so unique and unusual and a perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for-people in your life.

(Or easy-to-buy for people like me).

The Dusty Attic is a quaint Etsy store that offers black and white 4x6 " photography letters. You can buy the individual letters or word collages.

Wouldn't this make a fabulous father's day gift?
DAD D-A-D Word Art Architectural Alphabet Letters Print 8x10
Word Art HOPE H-O-P-E Architectural Alphabet Letters Print 8x10
Word Art PEACE P-E-A-C-E Architectural Alphabet Letters Black and White Photo Print 8x10
The artist created this lovely set for my home and gifted it to me! (thank you)


Isn't that cool? I can't wait to frame it!

Today, two collages (TWO WINNERS) are up for grabs just by leaving a comment! Please visit A Dusty Attic and tell me what word you would spell with this unique art (maximum of 6 letters for collages). ($25 value each)

This giveaway will end on Thursday.

I LOVE this! I was actually planning to try and make one of these for a friend of mine this Christmas, but now, I think I'll just order from this shop (if I don't win it here first!). I'd love one for myself, too...so I'd spell our last name, Diehl.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Marie said...

How cool is this artwork! I would love the "peace" letters.
Blessings,
Marie

Muthering Heights said...

Ummm, I think I would spell our last name...or my new baby's first name. It' so hard to choose!

Sara @ Be Still and Know said...

what a GREAT giveaway :) check out my blog to enter mine too :) anyways..i would do "LOVE" for our master bedroom!

Natalie said...

I think I might spell my own name (Natalie). I hope that's not self-centered, but I just don't have a child's or husband's last name to use yet!

Cathy said...

I would probably do the word FAMILY those are just awesome!

pendy said...

Definitely our last name...these are awesome!

Kasey said...

I've wanted a collage like this with my last name for a while, so I would spell out my name - Deines.

Ashley Benz said...

These are beautiful. I would love to gift my dad with the "Hope" one- he would definitely appreciate it.

Kathy said...

Fantastic!

I love this. My friend has this up in her house and I planned on stealing the idea (Muhahah)

Now I can get help in furthering my diabolical plot. :-)

I'd spell our last name. (I'm crazy like that...)

Rebecca said...

How interesting...I found "DAD" popping out at me without needing the "crib sheet" below the artwork. Now, if I were to win it, the big question is...do I give it to my own dad or allow my children to gift it to their dad?

Liz from WI said...

HOME

as another one of mine graduates high school, I want to make sure they remember where HOME is!

Jamie Mehan said...

I love this idea! I wish I'd thought of it first. Unfortunately, I'm not that creative! Oh, well. That's one of the many reasons I come to this blog. :)

I would choose either our last name, new baby first name or the word Romantical for the master bedroom.

Tomara said...

I'm attempting to be original (ha!!). I'd most likely want to spell my last name. But then again... maybe JOY or HOME or something "emotional" like that. I'd have a hard time making a final decision and probably end up with... MILLER.

Kar said...

love it...
I'd spell FAMILY or HOME.
My two favorite things.

Sasha @ Cherished Moments said...

Definitely the "JOY" frame. Lovely!

Shawna said...

I love this! I think I would spell my son's name, because it's an odd spelling (and no, I won't share, because I don't want anyone stealing it! ;) ) and my daughter has stuff that spells her (also odd) name. :)

Jen said...

I like JOY too. It's something I try to strive for when I remember! (J-O-Y = Jesus Others Yourself)

Thanks!
Jen

Norse, Jesica, and Boden said...

I really like the LOVE prints, but my baby B needs his name in his room too! How could I pick?

Shoebee said...

I would probably get the word Family, and place it in my family room.

mom 2 many said...

I would get either our last name....OR...my fave on there JOY!! I love it!!

arkie said...

I think I would like the word LIFE done this way. Interesting idea.

Stephanie said...

These are so cool. I'd definatley spell out our last name or maybe the word trust. Neat idea!

Sarah said...

Oh I am totally in the midst of creating my own photo words as gifts for some of the people I love.

I would probably spell:
Scott (our last name),Hudson (my son)or Meadow (my daughter)

Chelsea said...

How fun! I think I'd have my letters spell "Create".

Brooke said...

Great shop! I think I would get one that said "SISTERS" - seeing as how we have 3 daughters and a huge photo collection, I think that would pull the photo wall together nicely!

Wynn Bliss said...

I LOVE this-sooo creative!! Perfect gift for that person who has everything!! I'd get the word 'Wynn' our last name:) Thanks for an awesome give-a-way!!

~holly said...

i'd spell out dad.

Team Martins said...

I'm thinking... INSPIRE... DREAM... IMAGINE... something like that... maybe a gift or our last name? So many choices!

What a creative idea!

Love your blog, by the way... such a joy (chuckle, snort, laugh!) to read!

GritsGirl said...

Very cool!!
I agree with the other comments very hard to pick a word. Maybe
Rejoice
Love
or our last name

JC said...

I would spell out "Faith" something I am trying to have more of!

I wish it was easy...

Erica said...

I would probably spell "Laugh" because our family laughs a lot together. I have a few different things around the house (blocks, a pillow, etc) with that word painted or embroidered on them because sometimes laughter is what keeps us from going off the deep end. A kid has a ridiculous tantrum? Laugh, because the other option is crazy anger or frustration at their ridiculousness. Everything's going wrong today? Laugh, and know that tomorrow's a new chance. I'd spell laugh. :D

Valerie said...

I would definitely like to spell our last name Stell. I've been looking for something to hange over the tv and I think this would look great.

Thanks for the giveaway. I'm off to vote for your blog!

everydayMOM said...

Those are cool! I would go with FAMILY.

~Carole said...

What a clever idea! I think I'd spell, "mudroom." So many options, it's hard to pick just one.

slip4 said...

What a great shop! After perusing it, I would pick either "Family" or "Richmond" (our city).

Greta said...

These would make great Father's Day gifts for my husband or my father. I would probably choose "dad" or "family".

Jenn @ Beautiful Calling said...

Welcome, family, VanderPloeg

hard to say...I'll really have to give it some thought!!

MYSUESTORIES said...

H O M E . That's what it's all about, isn't it?

Southerner said...

I would spell our last name.

Angela said...

love this! what an awesome idea! I love the one that spells JOY. I think joy is one of the biggest foundations for enjoying life, and if not to enjoy it, then what else is there? If I had to decide on what I would do with the letters (if not choosing one that is already made) I would choose my son's name, we don't have anything with his name on it!

Dusty said...

Those are ridiculously awesome! What a great giveaway!

midwestmom3 said...

I would either spell FAMILY or FAITH.
Thank you so much!

caroline said...

I would choose Faith.

This is such a neat idea!

~*Michelle*~ said...

I would go with GOD and probably family or my last name.

Great giveaway!

Jen said...

What great art pieces. If I were to have one done I would have it read FAMILY TREE and display it with our family photos in the hallway. My kids call it the family tree because we've got as far back as their great-great-great grandparents displayed (and our last name is Wood so it all goes together).

JanMary said...

Gotta love Etsy!

This is a wonderful idea, and great giveaway.

I would chose WELCOME for our holiday cottage.

Sara said...

I sign all my correspondence (well, most of it anyway) with the closing word "Peace". So that one seems fitting. Great store. Thanks for sharing it!
Love your blog!
Peace,
Sara

ryleeandnoahsmom said...

What a cool concept! I think it would be fun to see the word "Home" or "Love" or "Faith" spelled out.

Jen Goble said...

I'd get the FAMILY letters. It would look amazing with the collection of family photos on my dining room wall.

kp said...

this is so fun and creative! i think i would do "love" or maybe "home". i'm inspired to try to find these shots on my own now!

Sara said...

I would pick Joy. What a clever Etsy shop!

Melissa said...

Love it! I would pick our zip code for my husband's office. It's random but special to him.

LifeAtTheCircus.com said...

What a fun idea! I think I would either spell our last name or the word FAMILY. or perhaps in the kids room (since all 3 are bunking together these days) I'd write: Friends... hmmmm the possibilities are endless!!

Rebecca said...

I think I would go with the DAD collage. My husband has some black and white photos in his office and this would work well together.

southerninspiration said...

I've always thought these were SO, SO cool! What a great giveaway!

Suzanne

Jeanette said...

This would be perfect for my kitchen! "Hope" would probably be a good one for that wall :} That is what my family has always got when I'm cookin'.

Hugs!

Maddy said...

I love this idea. It reminds me of a picture alphabet book that my children used to adore.
Cheers

kpmattingly said...

I would love to spell out my last name for our family photo wall! I am planning on getting one of these done for my sister in law this fall (she's getting married!).

Chasity said...

I think I'm tied between spelling our last name or Family, although, upon visiting I happened to fall in love with the hand knitted creamsicle scarf that's also listed. I love that color.

Preggo said...

I would choose our last name - I've always wanted something to proudly display my new(ish) name, but couldn't figure out the right thing! THis would be perfect!!!

Pam said...

I think I would either choose "FAMILY" or "LOVE". Decisions, decisions!

The O's said...

I've been checking your blog daily for a long time. But, I'm not sure that I've ever commented! ;) I enjoy reading, you're a talented writer! I think I'd love the word HOPE! Such a cool idea!!

FUN!

Beth said...

I would either get family or our last name. I absolutely love the love one and the peace one. How cool would it be to have one of these for each of the holidays and switch them out: love, thankful, merry, etc.

aggiemomof2 said...

I would love to have our last name framed like that! Although, I haven't gotten a father's day gift yet and DAD looks really good...

What a fabulous giveaway! I'd love to win!

Jessica said...

How cool! I've seen these before and love the idea. There are so many words that would be fun to spell, Love, Pray, Family, our last name. The list goes on and on!

Beth S. said...

I'd love to have this to hang over my doorway...WELCOME!

FYI...we took photos of all the kids and grandkids holding letters in different creative ways and put them together on a posterboard for my Dad for his birthday, Spelling out Happy Birthday Pappy! (what our kids call Grandpa). We had just enough people to each have our own letter and then made his beloved dog the exclamation mark. Some examples are: My daughter hung upside down on the trapeeze with her letter, my son (who was being potty trained at the time) sat on the toilet with his letter (which just happened to be the letter P...my Dad loves that type of crazy humor) and another one held their letter up at the swimming pool while in the water (with goggles, none the less). It made a great "card" and he loved showing it off at work. Just thought you might like this idea and you might find a way to add your own crafty spin on it!

Three Loud Monkeys said...

I would choose the word "Savior" as a daily reminder of how I have been saved by Jesus Christ. I would even try to see if I could get the "o" to be a picture of a round life preserver or even a crown of thorns.
