Spring will be here soon and that always make me think about how I can brighten up my home.  This can happen a number of ways, whether you just give your home a good deep clean, move some furniture around or buy new artwork.

Carmen Guedez is a painter from North Carolina who’s work has been featured all around the world.  We still love the artwork she sent us last year to review.  They are all side wrapped canvas paintings on wooden frames and make for great conversations.  Each painting is 100% original and hand signed, so you get to officially say you are an art collector.

Right now when you use the coupon code SSAVERS2013 you’ll get 75% off original paintings  (excluding sale items, cards, and prints).  You also get FREE shipping on any order.  Some of these paintings are very large, so free shipping is huge!

This offer expires 03/20/2013. Also, she has a great new feature where you can “Make an Offer” on almost any painting for sale, so treat yourself (or a friend)!

The Giveaway:

One Southern Savers reader is going to win “New Season” (a $1499 value!).
