    • Michele

      Since most art is also not something we can afford, I do a lot of projects on canvas or in frames with fabric and scrapbook paper. What’s great about it, is that you can easily change pattern and colors and give your home a new look, without having to buy new canvases or frames.

    • Kgreenup

      Pictures of family and friends!

    • Apuckett524

      Modern is our choice and of course our son’s artwork!

      Wow!  I fell in love with this painting when I first saw it!  I love abstract, but what I have in my house are watercolors and a mirror over the mantel that needs to go back to my (now ex) mother-in-law.  Red Poppies would be sooooo beautiful in my home!

    • Bri

      Carmen’s work is so amazing and she is from the same city my husband is from! I love abstract work and landscapes. Even though they are different from each other, I feel each room has it’s own theme and every piece of art (even my son’s finger paintings) fit somewhere into my home.

    • Sarah

      We have nature and landscape paintings throughout our home.  These poppies will fit right in!

    • Lucie L

      Who could pass up original art?? I checked her website and she has a lot to choose from…the geometrical theme looks good too!

    • Candicami

      wow… that is a lovely painting!  Most of our artwork in the house is authored by my 5 y.o. and 3 y.o.  When we get a chance, we like to go to starving artist shows and find something that catches our eye and is made by a ‘new’ artist.

    • Beth

      What covers my walls? Nothing!!! Just moved into a new home and have many empty walls.

    • Linda

      We have some country scenes….but the red poppy would go really well in a room we are redecorating. I’m so excited.

    • Teri

      I love abstract with a nature undertone. Too bad a tight budget means not having any pieces to brag about.

    • Laura G.

      We are very eclectic with the various (but small) pieces of art we have.  Mostly local artists… we do love color, if there is one theme throughout all of them though.

       Most of our walls are covered in pictures and maps :)

    • melissacholliday

      I follow SS on everything! My current “artwork” consists of flowered prints from Big Lots and the occasional picture friends’ children draw for me. I woul love some classy artwork. It’s beautiful!

      We love having a wide variety of unique artwork in the house, mostly modern and abstract – but always with a warm palette and timeless enough to stand the test of time.  This would be perfect!

    • Six Quivers

      the only artwork we have is a huge steel piece that is about 4.5 feet tall by about 4 feet wide that depicts an underwater scene complete with fish, coral, eels, and turtle and it is beige and turquoise…hard to describe with no picture but it was a beautiful piece we saw when we arrived home from our honeymoon in the virgin islands.  So another large piece would help cover up some blank wall space that we have.

      The artwork that fills my home was created by my sisters.

      We have some of our own artwork on the wall!  We paint in our house!!

    • Monika

      We love original art!!!  Though on our walls, you won’t find framed masterpieces of local artists, Picasso prints or elegant landscapes.  What you will see is the varied creations of our two daughters.  Mostly hand prints that make fish, grass, wings, turkeys and butterflies.  I suppose they can make Poppies as well, if we happen not to win:)

    • Sherry

      I mostly have pictures of my family decorating my walls.

    • Beautiful artwork! My house is filled with photographs and kid-art, but we could make room for this somewhere!

    • Cindy

      I have a cross stitch picture of red geraniums done by my great aunt 60 years ago and a picture of red tulips in a combined living room and den area.  The beautiful red poppies picture would complement them.

    • Mar

      This art work is so beautiful. We just re-did the living room in our house and this would be fantastic with the colors in it now. We have simple pieces of art work now, and these deep reds would look stunning with the addition of our new room!

      Big walls and small art, that’s what I have now. The art varies from framed prints ( more like posters ) and one original piece made of wood blocks, very nice…there is a antique poster advertising a fair in NH from 1878….very eclectic but would be much better with this work!

    • Crystal

      I have no artwork that I can afford. Just family photos. Love the red poppies!

    • Rosanna

      I have a accent red wall with no art work on it and in my other walls I have a mirrow and candle holders on iron I will love this art for my accent wall.

    • Melissa

      I’ve been on your fb for ages! Our home has a lot of our own paintings we’ve done for fun over the years! I love the Poppies piece!!

    • nichole_michele

      The free kind! Or cheap. Garage sale or flea market find! This goes with my color scheme!

    • krislynjo

      My home is filled with artwork from my four children.  My oldest son (12 years) has taken art classes for 5 years and is very creative… he painted the fish decor for the kids’ bathroom, which I get compliments on all the time!  People think I bought it somewhere, lol.  My other children love to draw, paint, and do “arts & crafts”, as they call it.  I have drawings all over my fridge, framed on my dressers and bookshelves, and even some of them hung on the wall.  I love unique art, but most of all, I love art that comes from the heart.  When I redecorate a room in my home, I usually start by picking a piece of artwork that I love, and then choose color schemes and decor that is centered around that one piece of art.  This piece by Carmen would look stunning in my den!!!  I love it!!

    • Sandy

      Mostly just family portraits in our house! Would love to add a splash of color with this artwork.

    • Norton_lauren

      We don’t have much artwork at all up in our home currently. We are about to start redecorating soon, and I would loooovvee that to be out first piece!! Our colors are brown, yellow, red and gold. I love the nature/earthy feel!! I think this painting would look great on my wall ;)

    • Tara H

      I don’t have my own house so I haven’t been able to hang the kind of pictures that I would really want, but this one (and others that I saw on facebook) is beautiful!!

    • Mia

      I have mostly pictures of my 3 girls.  I also have a couple of pictures that I took with my camera!

    • Pjh700

       I have a few black and white nature paintings, trees, bridges.  A colorful piece like this would certainly perk my room up! Love it!

    • Ndidlake

      Mostly family photos…thanks Jenny!:)

    • Kathyneff

      We don’t have a “type”, just pretty much like everything.  I think this art is beautiful though and would make it the focal point of our livingroom for sure!!

    • Jennifer

      We have mostly family portraits and art of a two year old :)

    • Shannon Page

      The majority of art work on my walls are mostly of Charleston, SC and the South Carolina low country. 

    • iHillmon

      OUr one and only non-family picture is a painting done by a friend. I love artwork that is hand-painted and unique. I LOVE the picture for this post. It matches my house perfectly. I’d love to win this to be able to feature a beautiful piece of creativity in my home.

    • Susan

      My daughters’ artwork fills our home!  They are ages 11 & 9!  : )

    • Noele

      I enjoy traditional subject matter done in a non-traditional way. Florals in macro, interesting media, or unusual color palettes are my favorite.

    • Lauren Ramsdell

      Usually one-off or limited edition posters, silkscreens and that sort of thing!

    • knkaty

      i have mostly prints with colors of burgendy, gold, beige that goes with the majority of rooms in my house so i can move them around-the above will go sooooo well!

    • I love anything with flowers. (clothes, decor, ect) beautiful! I have 3 pictures in my house. 1 is floral and the other 2 are van gough (starry night & something else)

    • Tammiepacek

      Some Abstract…..lots of family photos!!! :)

    • Amy

      I have some abstract art that my hubby and I worked on together.  Plus family portraits and my favorite over the fireplace dramatic wedding “dip” photo.  Carmen’s art is beautiful… would love to have the red poppies in my house!

    • Paige

      Artwork that usually fills my home is one done my 3 children (5, 4, 2) and hung up everywhere.  Then there are the photos of family and now there are a few clearanced Dollar General sale pictures up everywhere since we are trying to sell our home to get something larger.  I miss all of the “personal” stuff.  I would love to have something large and beautiful to start off our new home with. 

      Thanks for posting things on your FB and on your website!

    • ro

      I love abstract, non representational, and modern.  I also love rich colors.!  Thanks for the opportunity.  Just got back from an art class at the local museum.  I liked both of you on facebook

    • Mommyon731

      Our home is quite eclectic.  But, if I had my way, it would be filled with photography and impressionistic stuff.

    • Henrygirl75

      I only have two pieces in my home. They are a set and are abstract designs in warm colors. I love pieces like yours that are comforting and peaceful.

    • Beverly

      I have not filled my home with ANY art work as of yet.  We just moved into our home in May.  The style is early American traditional with a lot of great woodwork features and built-ins.  We, too, have plenty of original art from our 3,4, and 5  year old daughters.  I also have a sister who paints.  I have a couple of her prints but not sure how to work them into our home just yet.  I guess I’m just nervous about putting ANYTHING on the wall.  Thanks.

    • Lyn

      I’m redecorating our family room and really need a large piece of art! The colors in “Red Poppies” would be great, too!

    • Jordan

      Our home generally has a very country feel. Comfort art that you look at and it just makes you feel relaxed!

    • DaniP

      My walls are bare I’m ashamed to say aside from a few family photos. This would look great in my house!

    • Hrifkin

      We do not have one style…

    • esturm1

      Lots of photos and art by friends and family.

    • SKG

      Eclectic… esp art that POPS!

    • goldylox

      We are redecorating our livingroom and I would love something abstract for the wall behind the couch. I love the artwork here and would be thrilled to have any piece in my house.

    • Megan D

      Our house is full of artwork by people we know.

    • Ap17182

      My artwork is photos most of which I took myself. I sometimes have an original piece courtesy of my daughter.

    • Aria

      ? don’t have one style, it is more like what goes with decor. And already have a spot for that “red poppies”

    • LAMusing

      All types of art – and only one is not an original

    • Carole L.

      I do have a lot of tuscan style artwork.  But I love vibrant colors and this paining sure is that !

    • LAMusing

      I like you both on Facebook (as the name in my email address)

    • Jgunter742

      Since we are newly weds mostly wedding pictures and honeymoon stuff.

    • Gatech_allie

      We have tons of “originals” by our Five-year-olds gracing our fridge, a print from Ikea, and several framed photos. An original piece of art would be a nice addition!

    • Jgunter742

      I follow both

    • Really love the starkness of these peices. Very lovely and peaceful.

    • Tuckfam01

      my kids art is what usually covers my walls :) i would love to see something different added to all of the scribbles ….

    • Snowgurl18

      Our walls mostly have wedding and family pictures.  This would be a lovely addition to our house. 

    • Talex

      I ‘like’ you both on facebook – Theresa A.

      I love Carmen Guedez’s artwork. The colors are so warm and vibrant, and evoke images of hot sun and dusty summers. I have very few pieces like that in my home but I would love more. Mostly right now I have family photos, some metal artwork, some folk art, and of course contributions from the very young family members. :)

    • AnointedSaver

      I have a lot of boring flowers!

    • Radkbell

      Right now our walls are mostly blank since we are in the process of selling our house and purchasing a new one.  This would be a great way to start decorating our new house when we move in.  Beautiful painting!

    • Svrussell

      Mostly pictures and 1 oil painting of wolfs.

    • Andreza

      We have lots of family pictures.  This would make a nice change to our walls.

    • Kirstangrace

      The artwork in our home matches most of the furnishings — early garage and attic (hand-me-downs from relatives) supplemented by thrift store finds.

    • Jennifer Van Dahm

      I only have family photos because I never know what kind of art work to buy. Would love this piece to get started!

    • Jen

      I have a few pieces of artwork from my great grandmother. She traveled the world and would paint the places she had been. I’m very lucky to have a couple of them. Other than that, my walls are blank.

    • Deb

      My husband is a wildlife oil painter so we have beautiful wildlife covering the walls of our home.

    • Aleciarn1

      brightly colored and cheerful abstract art. I love a warm sunny and inviting room that inspires creativity and free thought.

    • Heather R

      This would go perfectly in my dining room!  I need it something fierce.  I have a lot of framed prints, but nothing original!

    • Kasey Meadows

      The walls in my home are filled with pictures of our family and a painting of a beautiful Church and Noah’s Ark. The artwork at my home may not be what everyone loves, but it’s what makes my husband and I “special” in our own way! Love the painting!

    • KD73

      I love unique and modern art!!

    • Glredeker

       the best artwork ever…. My kiddos drawings!!

    • Shanda

      Original African Art from Ghana and pictures of my family

    • Amanda

      We love the outdoors, so our artwork consists of nature and floral scenes. I especially love the look of leaves and flowers in paintings so much that all our rugs follow the same theme. They are beautiful!!!!

    • smgajl

      Mostly family pictures.

    • Amanda

      P.S. We have a huge wall in our house that has nothing. This piece would fit perfectly on it!

      Pictures of my precious grandkids and a few pieces of Home Interior.

    • Motleyfamsave

      Family photos and quilts

    • guest

      I don’t have a lot of artwork, so this would help decorate my house.  :-)

    • Hollie B

      I have alot of family art and metal art

    • Ledger Beth

      My house pretty much consist of pictures of my daughter and the art work that she creates. (She is almost three). I could really use a new painting my house. And I even have a Red wall should I chose to stick it there (if I am the lucky person). You asked what kind of style I like; simple and clean. I am not one for knick knacks.I do not need the added work (of dusting all those things).  I like pieces that pop and can really make a room look good. (Which I am lacking at this point). 

    • Lisa Martin

      so far, just framed posters, thrifts store finds, a really cool fabric stapled over a canvas board, that’s it.  :)  would love to win! 

    • kristy

      Most of the artwork in my home was created by a four year old or shows photos of the four year old :) I love the red poppies, and it would be so grown up looking in our house!

    • Agshook2

      Just family pictures and wire art. Would love to win one of her beautiful pictures. 

    • Mostly floral prints and family photographs fill the wall of my home. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    • Veganpadua

      this print if i win it :)  my sis-in-law is a “struggling artist” so we have some of her prints from her site – artist in the window.

    • Portertown Saver

      Mostly pictures of family and a few of lighthouses.

    • Jenndoll1981

      Mostly our home is filled with photographs of family and friends – and some places we’ve visited.  Love this painting, though!!!

    • Jenndoll1981

      I am already a SS follower on FB!

    • Lps48

      We have some of my oil paintings and family pictures. Would love to have an original painting. Love her work!!!

    • 2011couponsaver

      The type of artwork that usually fills our home combines my husbands photos, my son’s art work and some tropical items.  It would be wonderful to add the “Red Poppies” they are my grandmothers favorite flower and would be a beautiful artistic addition.

    • mt579

      Such a pretty painting! I have lots of floral prints in my home, so this one would fit right in!

    • jess

      I like to paint occassionally so mostly my own paintings are on the walls. I’d love to have a large painting like that though all mine are smaller.

    • TN Mom

      We have a combination of family photos and a few frames posters leftover from college (15 years ago!) We’d love to have such a lovely upgrade as this painting!

    • Couponeagle11

      I dont have any pictures on my walls I love family photos but dont like the idea of having them all over our walls instead I have updated ones in the living room on a mantle and a few in the kids rooms. I would love something abstract and kinda dark with a splash of color.

    • Couponeagle11

      I follow southernsavers and carmen on facebook

    • momoffive

      I don’t have any artwork yet. I have a lot of bare walls that really want to be filled. That large painting would be perfect for one of my walls.

    • ajb

      Abstract, crazy, unique things!

    • Munchkyn101

      We mostly have family photos and some posters. I would love to have a real painting to hang up!

    • Anything that strikes my fancy.  Beautiful painting.

    • Julie

      I absolutely love warm, rich earth tones…cranberry, plantation beige and deep browns…and these are the colors in my family room where this piece would look stunning over our stacked stone fireplace. Right now we just have a traditional mirror there that I’ve been wanting to replace with something more interesting, and this painting would certainly work and be the new focal point of the room.  Throughout the rest of the house we have an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary artwork (including a framed Georgia O’Keefe print and Monet’s Garden of Giverny)…not to mention several framed needlework and hand stitched pieces done by my grandmother and also a piece from my husband’s grandmother ( :

    • Kim

      I absolutly love the abstract..in paintings and decor, as on my couch pillows…crimson, chocolate, toffee…those are the colors I recently painted in my living room, and I have a 12ft wall that needs a painting. Nothing has struck that note with me yet. I do love the painting by Carmen!! Beautiful!!

    • karen

      most of our art has been created by our kids thoughout their years in school K-8 grades.

    • Amy

      Our house is filled with a hodge-podge of abrastract art, child-made art, and whatever I found cheap and on clearance. Would love to win this piece. 

    • Bellajade

      Large pieces that portray real things that sorround us, artwork that is simple yet makes a statement on its own. We enjoy warm natural elements and colors; pieces that bring the outside world into our home. 

    • Jfjuly24

      Our walls are covered with hand-me-downs no one wanted, or stuff my hubby had before we married. Please, please help me replace them!!

    • Atouchofyou2

      Family photos!

    • Bellajade

      I follow Southern Savers and Carmen on Facebook.

      Just pics of my kids!

    • Melpink531

      We have just family photos on the wall but have art history this semester at school and have really fallen to love greek art.

    • Shannon Burns

      We currently have white walls with absolutely no design or history of our family. Adding some pop or color to the walls in addition to the family pictures that I plan to put up will bring overly bland walls to stand out and make our apartment ‘homey’ not just a place with 4 walls and a roof.

    • Shellyday

      We have lots of family photos and some Thomas Kinkade.

    • Shellyday

      I follow Southernsavers on Facebook.

      Poppies are the theme in our great room. Her work is beautiful & would be a welcome addition to our home! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful piece of art!

    • evewitch

      Our artwork generally consists of family photos and cheap prints. I do have a wonderful Oriental-style painting that I trash-picked and one original painting by Bertrand called Zombie Love. And also hats. Lots and lots of hats.

    • Annecline99

      I love Pier One and have lots of finds from there on my walls and all through the house.  My taste is eclectic with a lean to the modern.

    • Amy

      Not much artwork hung in our house since we moved, but that picture fits perfectly with my colors!!

    • Niptuckjenny

      I love all artwork but especially retro. I liked both SS and Carmen on FB. :)

    • DonnaChas

      Right now we have a variety of shelving and a large cross-stitch that I completed about 25 years ago.

      Carmen’s work is gorgeous!! I have admired various poppies paintings but hers is unllike the others I’ve found and would love to have her painting hang in my home~I know right where I’d put it! :)

    • Danyeln

      My office is covered in old framed Bon Jovi posters.  The rest of my apartment is decroated with mostly cheap art prints that spoke to me for one reason or another. 

    • Rsmanyblessings

      Usually just photos of my kids.

    • SmoochTheCook

      The majority of our framed stuff is pictures of my son and other family members, although mom has some pretty floral prints in a block of 6 over the desk in the dining room.  I have some beautiful photos that my uncle took while hiking (a daisy with a lady bug on it and a dafodil with a bee on it).  He framed them as a Christmas gift to me, a few years back.  I’d absolutely feel blessed with this gorgeous art in my house!  it would certainly be the ONLY piece in my living room.

    • SmoochTheCook

      I like both SS and Carmen on facebook.

    • Jfmosley

      I usually like to hang up any modern paintings in my home

    • Sunscreenshelly

      The majority of the pictures hanging in my house are either pictures of golf courses, art work my son did when he was younger and family pictures. It is a beautiful piece of artwork and it would love wonderful in my living room. I have been looking for something to go above my couch and it has all the colors I love. Beautiful!!!!

    • Mary

      I have mostly pictures of my grandchildren.

    • jan

      I am conservative but I don’t have a certain style.  I love the picture that you posted!

    • akruszka

      My wall are completly empty!  We just moved to NC from Upstate NY four months ago, we donated most of our things to Habitat for Humanity and Salvation Army.  After renting for a few months here in NC, we closed on our home in December – so now we are starting from scratch on our decorating and furnishings and this artwork would be a great inspiration piece to pull my colors from.

    • Rya

      Our wall art is largely made up of family photos and drawings by my 2.5-year old son. However, I do have a selection of (cherished) paintings that I purchased from artists on the streets of Europe many years ago.

    • Cyndimac

      No original artwork here either.  I’d love to spruce the place up though!

    • Cyndimac

      I already follow you on FB and am now following Carmen as well :)

      I have no original artwork in our home. We usually have family photos up but we just moved and are looking for new things for our wall!

      I follow SS and Carmen on Facebook!

    • Tan

      We have the pictures of our garden–roses, daisy, sunflowers….

    • Thunter33

      Subtle earth tones, nothing to bright.  The painting that is being given away is just perfect!

    • Amelia

      I love putting jigsaw puzzles together.  After spending hours putting one together, I hate to take it apart.  So I frame them and hang them up throughout the house.

    • CJ

      My daughter’s art.  Just painted the den – this would look great!  Nice addition.

    • Lucy

      The kids artwork!

    • We have lots of modern art

    • Melsmayhem

      We haven’t put up “art” in several moves and would love to. Most of our few pieces are framed animation cells, golf course or nature prints. And I always put up framed pieces of the kids’ art in my office at work.

    • Nikkipel

      All kinds of pictures…

    • GA-Jen

      Our artwork consists of two things: family pictures and artwork that was given to us by my father in law. It would be nice to have something eye popping and unique in our house.

    • Michelle

      We have mainly pictures of the kids and some landscape pictures. Would love to win this.

    • Treeky3

      I’m following both in Facebook.  My typical artwork is black/white but my friends and family agree that it is time to look for some color.  The Red Poppy would fit nicely and probably relieve the anxiety of not gardening this year. 

    • Mary

      My home is filled with contemporary floral artwork.

    • Happymomma

      I try to place art work that has a reference to our faith in our home. I have vinyl wall scriptures, and I find they give me a little boost when I pass by them. However, I would LOVE to have this picture. My living room is red and gold and this pic would look FANTASTIC above my couch–and it would be a good replacement to a picture of a dog that my hubby has hanging there LOL!

    • Doris

      Our “artwork” is mostly pictures of my twins at various ages…  :) 

    • Laura Marie

      I love pictures of my family!

    • Teresa Hall

      Anything that has lots of color, I love the red in this one. I have some antique pictures that belonged to my mom.  I couldn’t stand the thought of getting rid of those.

    • Donna

      We have a map and pictures of my kids. Decorating is not my thing so I could use some professional help for sure.

    • Dustytrip555

      To tell you the truth, the painting shown above is exactly the style and design of the kind of wall art I have in my home.  I was pretty amazed to see it.

    • Cate23

      Currently, most of our artwork is done by family members who paint either professionally or just for fun.  Not me though….it’s my husband’s side that has talent!!  This would look Gorgeous above my fireplace and replace the one “print” in our Living room!

    • I have my children’s paintings and craypa drawings framed all over our house! 

    • I also follow you on facebook :)

    • Mariaacegary

      Kids artwork!

    • Michelle T.

      I do my own paintings… but I would love this on my wall!

      We usually choose art whose themes are natural settings, since the beauty of nature is so calming.

      Mostly pictures of my kids, love art but it’s pricey.

    • I am following both on Facebook. I’m a fan of nature and abstract art. :)

      I decorate with Country French including Tuscany themes, flowers & trees.

    • :D

      I’m not artistic and finding amazing art for a low-ish price is really a challenge. I love to take pictures and my family seems to like them as well, so my walls are usually decorated with my best shots. I would love to have real art…..

      Every room is different, it might be artwork, photos, plates, whatever goes with the “feel” colors etc of the room to make it homey.

      All rooms are different. Similar to Thomas Kincade in living area. Scenes of water & flowers.

       We have watercolors that have special memories for us – one is our trip to the State Fair and the other is the place where we got engaged.

    • Theladygrace

      I can’t really afford art, so I paint my own!  My favorite things to paint are flowers and seashells in watercolors, which is a very forgiving medium for people (like me) who are not born artists.  My favorite piece is of a sunflower that I gave to my fiancé as a birthday present before we started dating, because he always gave me sunflowers as gifts.

      My husband paints a little. We have one of his in our living room!

    • ProudMum

      my daughter is really into drawing and painting, so that is the only original artwork hanging in our home. I would LOVE TO have this piece to add to our collection. We absolutely love it.

    • Jessica Edwards

      Anything romantic or modern. My husband loves stark photography and I love softer more romantic pieces.

      who is the lucky one ? not me :-(

    • Congratulations to Annecline99 for winning “Red Poppies”.

      Thanks everyone for participating! 

      • This is a dream come true!  I live in an old house with large rooms and high ceilings, so it will not be intimidated by the size of this painting.   Red is my signature color and I love poppies;  I have a framed print of Georgia Okeeffe’s red poppies in my dressing room. My decor is definitely eclectic and can support an abstract piece such as this. Many thanks to Jenny and Carmen!
