the fine art of family GIVEAWAY.



I immediately took to their mantra that "family is always in fashion."  



To begin our week of giveaways exclusively for you, The Fine Art of Family is celebrating the idea that "there's no gift more precious than a beautiful photo, beautifully presented."  Who better than a woman or mother to get that?  

Monica Rich Kosann, a museum and "gallery exhibited" fine art photographer specializing in family portraiture, created this collection (and here) to showcase families' most special memories.  
When I began designing my collection of Image Cases, I was inspired by vintage compact, cigarette cases, and lockets that were a part of everyday life at the turn of the century.  I believed these wonderful heirlooms could be reinvented to carry and display my clients' special images.  Each... is designed to become a timeless keepsake that will hold your most precious photos. -Monica Rich Kosann




Some are hand engraved, others limited editions, and all are presented in sterling silver or gold.  Each piece is truly unique and especially beautiful, as seen on the likes of Katie Holmes, Eva Longoria and Madonna.  But red-carpet targets or not, each of us can count these as objects of the heart.  

On to giveaway: one of you will win the chic round floral half locket in sterling silver, $190.


"This single image case necklace is for that one perfect picture and is designed to be worn image side down, close to the heart. Available in Sterling Silver and 18K Gold, this half locket has on ¾-inch case embellished with our signature floral pattern and hangs on a 16-inch chain. Photos easily slide in the top of each image case."
Wowza!  Like we said.. only the best.  

What is your favorite piece?
