Julie,

I love the idea. Would love to win anything from you. You're my favorite artist!

My favorite sound is my grandson's giggles.

I'll link back to you in my next post.

Teresa Sexton said...

Favorite sound? That's such a difficult one to answer! Hmmmm. I'm going to say that my favorite sound is the sound of the garage door opening because that means my sweet husband is home for the day. He is a darling!

I also tagged you and your blog in a note on facebook. Sent it to a bunch of my friends, too.

Hope you're doing well!

Mmm said...

Ooh i will do that at some point later as I have a blog especially timed right now that i don't want to step in the way of.

sound? the sound of either my children laughing or the sound of old style espresso coffee machines steaming up frothy milk.....mmmm.

BTW, thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog recently. Very well appreciated.

StegArt said...

Oh goodness, I must get into this contest, your art is fantabulous! My favorite sound is "Meow".

Auburn Kat said...

Gosh, my favorite sound...that is a hard one! I think it would have to be crickets chirping in the summertime at the house I grew up in. It just reminds me of my happy childhood memories...

lori vliegen said...

oh, i am loving the fact that i can help you celebrate your 217th post!! and...i think that my favorite sound is me jumping up and down and yelling "woo hoo" if i were to win one of your fabulous prints (add in the clapping hands, hair flying all over the place, etc., etc.)

:))

nanatrish said...

Please enter me in. I love your art and hope I win.

My favorite sound is laughing. I think I have heard enough crying for a lifetime. Laughing is so comforting.

Strider said...

Great idea. My favorite sound in the whole world is the sound of a mountain creek as it cascades down a rocky bed.

cindy : quaint said...

until i hear my husband shout out 'we won the lottery', my favorite sound is when he tells me he's home and the birds chirping outside our window. that's two, i know. congratulations on no. 217! and, thanks for such a nice giveaway!

steviewren said...

Julie, my favorite soon is a child's laughter. You can't help but be happy listening to it.

I'll post a link to your site too. Check it out in a bit.

Thanks for being so generous!

WW said...

Julie...good luck with the givaway. Your work is lovely and anyone would be happy to have one of your pieces.
As for a sound..I think my favorite is when I sit on the end of the dock in the early evening in the summer. You would think that you don't hear anything...until you really listen. Then, you hear the softest sounds of nature all around.

Susan said...

Wow ! woofs and purrs, kitten chirps and sweet doggie sighs, the last gurgles of my pre-set coffee maker each morning - the sound of a brand new day, CBC radio, rain, gentle wind, eaves rustling, birds of all kinds, spring peepers, my nephew Michaels voice, ships coming into our harbour ... oh my here I go again.

What a great give away !!

julie king said...

i forgot to mention that my favorite sound is the twitter of birds. oh, how i long for spring when we can wake up to that sound again!!!

thanks for all your participation, folks!!

The Vintage Sister Studio said...

Happy 217 Julie!!!

My favorite sopund is my son's breathing when they sleep. I like to smell them too:)

I'm loving that guitar piece, brilliant!!
Tracy

Diahn said...

OH, Wow...my favorite sound? The sound of waves rushing up the sand at the beach, then running back down. I could listen to it day and night!

And I love all these...have I mentioned I play guitar? :-D

Gina said...

Interesting question. It made me stop and really think about it. My favorite sound -- a mourning dove.

Linda Mahoney said...

Yea! I would LOVE to win. My favorite sound is water running in a mountain stream. hmmmmm might tie with wild birds singing.

Marie Reed said...

Hmmm.. my favorite sound is hearing the dripping of my coffee maker! What a creative uestion!

laura said...

Hi Julie. Fantastic--I love your work!!
The guitar in this post is really wonderful; the pears too!
My favorite sound is silence.

Annelein said...

What a great idea...and such lovely art..my favorite sound (or one of them) is the water splashing as I rinse my brush in the water container.

Well, I already have your link on my blog - although I don't think anyone actually reads my blog...
http://dazed55.blogspot.com/ In case you're wondering, I found YOU'RE blog through Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's blog... Love your art!

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

What fun!
My favourite sound is Edward's big go- to- sleep sigh that he does when we turn off the light at night. That sound just seems to make my shoulders relax.

Don said...

Hi Julie,

I came over from Laura's great art blog and wanted to see what she was recommending. Beautiful work. I especially like the guitar.

One of my favorite sounds is a train whistle in the night.

supplies overflowing! said...

Hi ! My first visit to your site (uh oh- I can't remember how I found you) but I will enter this give away by telling you that the sounds of my 4 children talking quietly and/or laughing together is definitly my favorite sound.
I will add a link on my blog, and email you- if I can find your address. I am still pretty new at this.
jenny
p.s. I think your work is great.

The Mind of a Mom said...

The most favorite sound I could ever hear is my daughter's voice at bed time when she tells me she loves me!

Artist Unplugged said...

Beautiful clock and the other works are lovely as well. Hmmmmm, my favorite is the little sound that is made when a oittle baby sucks on it's pacifier. Found you by way of Supplies Overflowing!

Melinda said...

Came to your blog through Diahn...my favorite sound, the sound of a creaky, screen door slamming shut.

Lilly's Life said...

I just read on Christine's blog about you and your work. ery lovely art and I will go visit your shop as I love Etsy shops and getting original work.

My favourite sound is gurgling streams of water. Water always reminds me of home except with our horrific bushfires we could do with some rain.

Karine said...

Hi Julie! Fun giveaway. I think my favorite sound is that of the teapot boiling. (I'm sure it changes.)

Pherenike said...

Lisa Reed said...

I love the sound of rain in the wee hours of the morning when you can stay in bed aslong as you want.
I'd be honored to win. What a lovely blog you have. I was sent by Diahn. Happy Valentine's Day!
