  2. I'm so excited! I finally feel like I can start commenting. :) I've spent the last week reading your blog from start to finish, drawn in by your inspiring stories and pretty thing.

    Your photography blows me away. I love the sea and sky set of minis. They're so serene. I'd most likely take these to work and string them up in my cube. That's were I need the serenity the most!

  3. You are lovely. Your photos are lovely. I like sea and sky the bestest.

    ReplyDelete

  7. What a lovely thing to do! My favourite has to be the blossom set. Or is it the island set? I'm so torn!

    ReplyDelete
  8. mmmm I love-love-love the sea and sky set! It is hard to remember the wonderful unrulyness of the sea when I am living in a Midwest state.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ohhh, what a most excellent and kind giveaway. I had such a hard time picking a favourite. Seriously. But I think Blossom is it. I have every faith that they'll fly out of your shop like hot cakes! x faye x

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have to agree that I, too, am a big fan of your sea and sky set. I think it's nearly unanimous ; )

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love the blossom set and the sea and sky. I'm envisioning one of them hanging in my kitchen giving me moments of joy when it catches my eye, while I'm doing boring things like dishes.

    ReplyDelete
  12. beautiful sets..

    I'm going with island green!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I absolutely love the "sea and sky" - the pictures are so evocative.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The sepia set is my favourite, I love love love it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. these are so wonder-lovely & delicate. i'm rather partial to palace of illusion--each shot like a tiny blink, a memory fragment, a stanza. the garlands are beautiful little windows and would make even a blank white wall feel grand.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love love LOVE the Blossom set! So gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  17. So hard to choose a favorite, they're all so lovely! I think maybe Island Green...or Sepia...or Blossom...

    Probably Sepia if I *had* to choose. But I adore them all.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ugh. Really? Making me choose? I like the first four sets. I cannot choose between them. You should either send me them all or surprise me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm moving in with my fiance (who has very little art of his own), but I feel like we would both really love Palace of Illusion in our space. It seems like you captured quiet magic.

    ReplyDelete
  20. sooo beautiful! in love with them all.. sea and sky or blossom are my favorite!

    even though Palace of Illusion is also catching my eye....

    to tricky can't choose.. love them all! x x

    ReplyDelete
  21. Gorgeous. I love the Sepia set. That kitty gets me every time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. They're all so beautiful! If I must decide, I would say I like the Sepia set the best. I love the warmness of those colors. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOVE your blog! the Palace of Illusion is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awww adorable. The second set with the dandelion - le sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  25. oh peonies , you're so sweet to give one of these away! I think they're ace, I'd love the island green one, even though I kow its scotland, it reminds me of Norfolk and my grandpas.

    ReplyDelete
  26. So beautiful! I love the island green set. Unbelievably heart warming somehow... thanks for sharing the love!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just spent kind of stupid amount of time going through each set to try and figure out which is my favorite before commenting here. :) I think I've decided on Sea and Sky.....because of how calm the images make me feel and I like to add things to my house that soothe my soul. :) That said...they are all pretty rad if you ask me....I am partial to the sepia as well :)

    ooooh i hope i get picked. i never win anything! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ooo so hard to choose one! I think I'll go for blossom... but the sea breeze one is a very close second! I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hello! I came across your blog just today & I couldn't stop reading through everything - your posts are lovely!

    I love the blossoms set because I've always loved flowers and your prints remind me of the cherry blossoms in Japan. And pale pink colours? I'm sold. (:

    ReplyDelete
  30. I adore the sepia set. Though I may have to buy the rest! They are all gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  31. They're all simply stunning. But if a girl has to choose...sepia is my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  32. what a fantastic idea!!! i would love a set to put up over my desk! although they are all lovely, i think my favorite is Blossom. so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh I am so in. I would choose the "sea" series; I think it would be the right kind of calm for our winter apartment. Although I am in love with the island one as well... These are gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oooh, I love the Sepia set ... and I'm such a sucker for mini things and the tiny clips and pretty packaging!
    I'm reblogging this on our wedding blogs, www.wedspace.tumblr.com and www.wedspace.com/blogs/posts/wedspace.
    Love the blog, always, dear.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sea and Sky...to remember the ocean by. I'm much too far away from it now (sob)!
    Congratulations on such beautiful work...what a lovely accomplishment!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh sea and sky, oh island green, oh blossom. Oh I can't choose between them. I think island green is my favourite. What a gorgeous gift - to myself of course I couldn't possibly give such beauty away.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The Island ones just sing to me. Lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  38. For me, the choice today would be the Blossoms series, a little ray of hope, promise and beauty for the dark winter days when you feel like you haven't seen the sun in a week. They simply and genuinely make me smile, every time I see them.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the photos on the clothes line.
    I've done that in my entry way. and my best friend did the same thing with post cards
    http://style-for-style.blogspot.com/2009/05/hung-out-to-dry.html

    lovely...

    ReplyDelete
  40. well. wow. you're very clever. the presentation of these exquisite little sets is really perfect, let alone the veritable contents. can you imagine being given one as a gift? okay, maybe quite a stretch for you, but let me tell you, it'd be quite a gift.

    for what it's worth i favour sepia. yes, i do.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love them all but Island Green and Sea&Sky are my absolute favourites.

    ReplyDelete
  42. what lovely, lovely work! hard to choose a favorite, but i'll have to go with the sea & sky. Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOVE your website! two of my favorite things peonies and polaroids! it's a tie between the blossom set and the palace of illusion.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love them all (even though fragments of memory is my absolute fave) Blossom is perfect- it reminds me of the beauty of nature

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've always loved tiny pictures! This is a fabulous way to display them. Really great!

    I'm torn between the blossom set and the sepia set. Since I'm feeling girly today, I'll say blossom. They are so beautiful and delicate.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh Gracious! 45 comments! So much love for you peonies! Well and truly deserved. your blog is a constant source of inspiration for me. I dont say that lightly

    Thanks for always being so honest too.

    These box sets are incredible. I truly love each one- but my ultimate, hands down, would win in a dragon contest winner would be the palace of illusions.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love the Island Green. Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  48. ooh sepia please. lovely, love the packaging too

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the Island Green and Blossom sets.

  50. Absolutely gorgeous. I've been following your blog for a while (since before I had my own wedding, and now in the months since then. I love your photography - the sepia ones are beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  51. a haiku

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love this idea for a gift. The pictures are beautiful.
    I love the Sepia set. The Dandelion is gorgeous. Thanks for a great giveaway - fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Awesome - I'm lovin the sepia set!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love the Island Green set! We just got married two months ago, and moss green and chocolate brown were our colors, making me even more partial to this set.

    If you had a set of bunnies, though, that would be the best!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Sepia is my favourite. How gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lovely work, Peony! For my mother, who just converted the shed into an art studio for herself and lives between sea and sky on Cape Cod, I would pick the sea & sky set (clearly). For myself, I love the whimsy of the Palace of Illusion. I'm pretty sure these will make an appearance under my family's Christmas tree this year!

    ReplyDelete
  58. LOVE. THEM. looks like i have my christmas shopping done for some of my very most special friends.

    (i'm partial to palace of illusion, myself)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh my goodness...sea and sky are sooooo magical. I feel carried away to a camelot world. How perfect they would be, pinned up along my dressing table mirror!

    ReplyDelete
  60. i adore the palace of illusions set!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Ooh, tricky... I'm drawn to the one with the cat, coz I long for a kitty, but I think the sea and sky one is my favourite. It makes me remember that I love to get out on the water! Love your work :) When I have monies I will be buying...

    ReplyDelete
  62. Island Green! They are beautiful and I love the idea of hanging them like that!

    ReplyDelete
  63. they are all so beautiful and i can easily get lost in all of them but as i type this i see hope and endless posibilities in the sea and sky.

    ReplyDelete
  64. oh these are wonderful. You are wonderful.My favourite is the palace of illusion. But i love the sepia too! Congrats on these. As always your photos take my breath away.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The photos are beautiful! I think my favorite is the Island Green...mostly because I do love the sea :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. ohhh the green one the green one. *drool* *melt* *love*

    ReplyDelete
  67. The Sepia set is my choice, but they are all beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Not only are the prints one hundred percent adorable but they are packaged to perfection! I adore them all but I have a thing for real thing for the Island green. xx

    ReplyDelete
  69. Peonies: I love the calming island green (I am in need of calming - currently in protracted house-selling agony and now to cap it all our wedding photographer is being weird and refusing to send us our photo CD). Grump. Your blog as ever is a sight for sore eyes & soul.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wonderful, really inspiring.... I love the Island Green set.. its calming.

    mmmmm....

    ReplyDelete
  71. They are all so beautiful. I particularly love Island Green - we live on a boat and I would hang the pictures at my desk at the office to remind myself why we moved onboard and that the light will come again (it's easy to forget, especially when I leave and get home in the dark).

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh wow they are all so very beautiful! But my favourite would be the sea and sky, simply breathtaking!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love the colors of Island Green. so fresh!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I really like the sepia, but I would have to say island green is my favorite.

    I've been lurking about your blog for quite some time now and I just want to say I adore reading it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love the sky and sea set!

    ReplyDelete
  76. what--pick just one? not fair...i love "island greens" and "palace of illusions" equally...and the others are so beautiful too!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Gosh! they are all sooo soo pretty ... If I had to pick one, it would be the moody blue gray watery shots ... sooo so pretty .... will definitely be visiting the shop soon... lovely, lovely, lovely ...

    ReplyDelete
  79. Sepia. Because the cat is always right.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love love love the island green! Yes, pleeease!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Island green all the way! Aahhhh...breezy.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Thank you, you have inspired me to start a blog! Much in the same way that you inspired me during my wedding. I love the Palace of illusion the most. What a great idea to give a set away. Thanks again for your inspiration :-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Island Green. For the calming of congenital anxiety. Age has made only so much of a dent.

    ReplyDelete
  85. OooOOooo I love them all so very much---but my absolute fave is the flower set. <3

    ReplyDelete
  86. what a decision to have to make. after much deliberation I'm opting for palace of illusion as i love the name as much as the photos

    ReplyDelete
  87. Blossom!! It is quite cruel , however, to make me choose. I love all of your work!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I also had a hard time choosing, but I love the sepia set!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Hate what the many commenters does to my chances of winning! But how wonderful for you that so many people recognize the wonder of your work. Congrats and best wishes. (P.S. Love Island Green the best!)

    ReplyDelete
  90. These are so so lovely! I had to go through the sets multiple times in order to narrow it down to a favorite (so difficult!) but I think it's got to be sepia. They just feel so calming to me!

    ReplyDelete
  91. It is terribly difficult to pick a favorite!! Each set is amazing and beautiful! I think it's between the island green and the palace of illusion! Such beautiful beautiful sets!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Extraordinarily sweet and beautiful. Congrats, Peonies! The miniatures look amazing. It's a very tough call between Blossom and Sepia... I think the Sepia set is my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love your blog :) The blossom minature set is just gorgeous!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. oh my gosh, those are so beautiful. i especially love the sea and sky-incredibly tranquil!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Oh, dear..! I love them all, but if I *must* pick one... Hmmmm... Probably Blossom. Although I love Sepia, too. And there is something about Palace of Illusion that just calls me, too. So. If I happen to be the chosen one (pleaseohplease), maybe you could choose for me from those three... that would be simply fabulous. I love surprises.

    xo,

  96. lady peony,

    your previous post about the little boxes drenched me with whimsy & wonder & love in the details. it's actually embarrassing how long i gazed at the photos and thought of the creator behind them. i keep returning to them time and time again. my favourite is island green. soft light, bright nature, CALM.
    thank you so much for the beauty you share.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Wow. Really hard to pick but I think the Blossom one is my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  98. oh oh oh!!! i looove the island green set as well as the sea & sky set and am up for a surprise :) you are so incredibly talented with both your photographs and words. thank you!!

    -emily b.

    ReplyDelete
  99. They are all so beautiful, I just spent a ridiculous amount of time going backwards and forwards trying to choose (my cup of tea went cold).

    Today I would choose Blossom, but in a different mood Sepia or Island Green would be the one...

    ReplyDelete
  100. These are absolutely beautiful - I just love your photographs. I think that Isald Green would be my choice. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Love your blog and your work. I personally like the Palace of Illusion set. Very lovely pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Just came across your site today for the first time. I love the scale of your photography--the way that you choose tiny vistas to create a sense of a whole place, a whole event. This is the way that memory actually works, isn't it? Little flashes of image and mood. Very nice indeed.

    I think my favorite is the Island of Illusion set--because it seems to represent a story in itself.

    Keep 'em coming!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love everything... your photos are so dreamy and beautiful. Great gift idea! I really like the Island Green and Blossom sets. xo -Myra

    ReplyDelete
  104. aw yay! i love the blossom set, and you are definitely not a crappy blogger!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I LOVE the blossom set! Such gorgeous packaging too!
