Minted in the House: $50 Giveaway!

When I say “Minted in the House,” I’m not talking about Tiffany’s box blue walls and seafoam sofas.  I’m talking about Minted – purveyor of pretty paperie & luscious letterpress – who, lucky us (!) has also just added a baller collection of wall art to their repertoire.  So in honor of their newest endeavor, we thought we’d play a little curation station and handpick some of our favorites to get your juices flowin’… cause we’re doing a $50 Minted Giveaway!  (Details at bottom of post…)

Salinity – yep – looks about like my life right now. | Striped Suit – worn by someone named Claudette, bien sûr. | Staredown – aka Mooooooo.  Perfect for a guy’s abode… or mine – this is awesome.  | Rooftops of Paris – le sigh.  Je hear this playing. | California Dreams – when I look at that pink sky, I can almost smell salty ocean air.

Peonies in Vase – Because peonies are the prettiest, as is this art. | Highway Wildflowers – The bright pops of color conjure a feeling of vibrancy that just makes me happy. | Twisted Horizon – The equivalent of 5 valiums, right there. | Runaway – Sooooth that soul, Amanda.  Staring at this, just for a moment, takes me back to my Caribbean honeymoon.  Sigh. | Ligurian Houses – Add this painting to any room and bring it alive.

In the market to send some good ‘ol fashioned mail?  Here’s what we suggest.  If yoooooooouuu…
