It was a pleasure looking through your ETSY shop. I had a hard time choosing my favorite image! I struggled between Pink Window, The Music Beginning to Fade or Deflowered - but I think Pink Window is my favorite. Thanks for this chance to win a fantastic prize. I've also added you to my follow list.
Hugs,
Laurie

Heidi said...

I love everything in your Etsy shop... it's hard to choose. I love butterflies, so I'll say Flutter Series No. 1, but they're all actually fabulous! Thanks for the chance to win...

great work!!! I love your image Remember What it is Like to Fly... - very nostalgic!

luke and pamela said...

wow, i love you work! amazing! if i am randomly picked, i'd like you to chose an image for me. i can't decide between the iceland one, several of the nudes, the flowers, the fruits... they are all amazing and bring different feelings from me, so i'd like to leave it up to you/fate. congrats on your little one! i just had my first 3 weeks ago, but he came 19 days late!

Pam said...

Figure Study number 2 is lovely but so are all the others.

Simply EC said...

What a beautiful blog! So inspirational! I will be following you from now on!

So many beautiful images. The one that really stuck out in my mind was the Himilayan Blue Poppy, but I also loved the tire swing, "On the Road again" and the Red Dahlia.
I would love the nostalgic set.

Beautiful work!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Congratulations on your new daughter; what a great blessing in your life!
Your work is amazing, you have a really good eye. I like Ocean-Iceland and NYC tulips but all your work is terrific.

Chancy said...

Hmmm, I couldn't decide between Fly Away Home, Tracks, or Carousel Series Number 2. Funny that they were all non-nudes when from your prizes I like the nudes better. Strange. Oh, and I favorited you on etsy.

Lane said...

I feel as though "Tracks" needs to be hanging on my wall right now. IT was by far my favorite out of them all.

TheEye said...

congrats Tiffany on the new baby! that's wonderful!! Q is a big sis!

cinco is my fave... :-)

lucy C said...

So hard to decide, but my favourite has to be ocean island. It's just beautiful. Thanks for such a generous giveaway. I've also added you as a favourite on Etsy.

sknights1111 said...

Lots to choose from, but my favorite is: The Music was Beginning to Fade.
I also loved the Pink Window, but the first is so different.
Sue

ruth hill radcliffe said...

Tiffany, I really enjoyed your shop. I have loved polaroid transfers from the first time I saw one. My favorite was hard to choose, but I love the composition and shadows in "Siblings". You've already been one of my favorite shops.

Best wishes with your giveaway....hope you get tons of entries, views, hearts and followers. ruth

I love "On the Road Again" - it's wonderful. This is a fantastic giveaway. As a photographer, I've always been interested in Polaroid transfers, but I don't actually own any art. A shame, really! Maybe my luck will change come June 1!

M said...

Your photos are so expressive & really tell stories - wonderful! It was a joy to browse your etsy shop! My favorite (there are so many) would have to be Lovely Quiet. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity!

VERY cool all of them :)

two hippos said...

You're amazing to do this so soon after having a child! My favorite image is Lovely Quiet.

B said...

Remember what it was like to fly. That is my favorite because it brings back the memory of my sister and I breaking the swing my great grandfather made. It was wood and snapped in half. She fell, I somehow stayed on the swinging rope. It turned into a tire swing a few minutes later.

I loved deflowered too though.

Liz said...

What lovely photos in your shop! I certainly "favorited" you on etsy even if it didn't increase my chances of winning here. I love the Cold Heart of the Sun print... I can never resist bare trees against a light sky! Congrats on your new arrival, and thanks for the giveaway chance!

Super Fun Mama said...

I think I'll choose the Yellow Wallpaper because it is one of my favorite short stories. I loved good fortune too though.

Great! I love "Strength- 3x4 Polaroid Image Transfer ORIGINAL in 8x10 Archival Mat OR 8x10 Enlarged PRINT." My favorite would be Nostalgic Images. Thanks!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Lindsay said...

Congrats on the baby, how lovely. My favorite was wheat pool. Thanks!

free indeed said...

I liked the print of "lovely quiet' and the red dahlia. I'd choose nostalgic rather than the nudes...many of the floral and trees were very lovely and my faves.

melonkelli said...

I love the Nature, Time, and Patience... image.

Sara said...

Your shop is awesome...I loved Glass Crystals I think it was called...some glass pieces on a woman's back...stunning...

sandyandcosmo said...

You are so talented it is hard to choose ,but I'd have to go with Merlot the Winemaker because I can't resist a Jack Russell!

thea_lamo said...

WOW! that is all I can say! I found an old polaroid at a tag sale years ago and bought it because I suspected there was artistic potential, and you have proved it, and inspired me!
The image that grabbed me the most in your etsy shop was

Tres, in the pear series.

Thank you for the chance to win!!

Kris said...

Your image, Waiting for You is beautiful. It really captures the moment

robayre said...

I've been too neglectful of bloglines lately and missing my tiffany. Wait, I haven't even read the post, I just wanted to get my grubby hands on some of your goods.
OMG! You're a mom again! I am the worst friend. Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations!
I was riding my bike to work thinking "tiffany's due date is any day" little did I know, a little-un was already brought into the world.
Browsing your shop, my favorites still remain the fern pieces, but I do already own one. Some other ones that catch my eye are the tire swing piece and the one titled Come Back.

Very nice photographs. It was hard to narrow down, but my absolute favorite has to be The Cold Heart of the Sun. There is strength in its simplicity. It speaks to my soul.

Thank you for enriching the world with your work!

Your work is amazing and I love the idea of the pendent -- very beautiful. I love two - the ornamental cabbages because it reminds me of some of the flowers at my wedding and the NYC tuplips because I love tulips season in NY where I grew up.

If I had to choose one image I would choose Lovely Quiet. I feel like that takes me to a time and place so far away from my reality. Truly Lovely.
If I do win I'd cherish the nostalgia series.

Casey said...

WOW! Your work is STUNNING! Do I have to pick a favorite? I guess it would be Tres, from the Pear series, because it reminds me of a photo my husband did in art school, but with Spam :) Your work is seriously beautiful! I definitely added you to my favorites! And congratulations!!!!!
