Alexa Lett Giveaway

A few months ago I was lunching with some ladies (I will fantasize that I get to do this often) and I had the opportunity to meet Alexa Lett. Alexa is a bit of a local celebrity. Her ideas and art have been featured on various HGTV and Discovery Channel segments and shows, numerous "how-to" books by Better Homes and Gardens, and her childhood recipes are assembled in her book titled, "Homemade".

(Of course, my favorite it that she is actually one of the artists involved in the Art-o-mat!!!! How cool is that?)

Alexa is the ultimate "junker". She scourers the country, looking for unusual "junk" to create her incredible art. For fun, she put a few things on Esty, but they sold out quickly. Still, you can get the pictured original Alexa Lett creation for yourself!

Alexa describes the piece as: Handmade piece of mixed-media art created and signed by Alexa Lett . The canvas is an old linen 5.5" x 8.34" thrown away book cover. The centerpiece features a sewn vintage paperdoll dress mounted on a old bingo card with vintage adornments. The quote is one we should all live by: "Style is the dress of thoughts." by Lord Chesterfield. Value - $45

How great would this be in a laundry room, a craft room or even a little girls room? (Or as a Mother's Day Gift!)


Want to win it? Just head over to Alexa's blog and check out some of her gorgeous creations. Then come back here and mention a piece that you love. Just identify it by the post name. For a second entry, mention that you are a Natalie's Sentiments subscriber/reader in a separate comment. I will announce the winner on March 9th. Good luck! Valid only for US residents.

Hi Natalie!

I of course am a reader!

And I think Alea's post on "Sharing A Funny!" is hysterical! It was hard to decide... I'm in love with "Crafting Trash!" & "Oodles of texture!"

Hope you have a great day!
