  14. colleen from alabama says:

    “Remember when you go out into the world” so that my family (most importantly ME!) will be aware that what i do each day has an impact but ulitmately we are able to do those things because we are GREATLY loved by God and our family.

Or the kiss your life one. This message is just great, and what a great reminder hanging up in your house. I really strive to be happy for what I have now. I also have a giveaway at my blog if you’d like to stop by : )

  23. Karen T. says:

    I adore all them-they make me swoon-my favorite-if I were forced to pick-would be the last one-I would love my kids to read this often-it looks so much better than my reminders sound! I ‘liked’ them on facebook and will post about the giveaway contest-although I do want to keep it to myself! hee hee! Altthough, I would shout if from the roottops if I won!!!

  24. Liz R says:

  25. I love the “You are my sunshine” one! That has special meaning for our family :)

  26. Liz R says:

    I have “liked” everyone.

  27. Emelyn says:

    I love the “Remember When” freeship item. It seems to sum up everything I’ve learned and have yet to learn in my 36 years of life. Something also about having a family with 4 young kids and also going through 2 lifechanging experiences, a year apart of each other, just makes me realize a lot. This item would go in a spot somewhere in our living room, where everyone could see it. Gives you food for thought. Thanks for sharing the giveaway.

    The COME AT EVENING metal sign is amazing. I love the materials it’s made out of and it’s a very welcoming message for all that see it once they enter a home. Great giveaway!!!

  34. Doris Ferzetti says:

    “Remember When” would be wonderful hanging in my kitchen. We are a family that loves visiting the shore so not only does this piece have a weathered appearance that would remind me of the shore, but the verses are a perfect for my two boys to read every morning as they head out into a world that can sometimes be unkind. It is a reminder of just how precious our time is and to use it wisely….and to remember that Love is really all we need. I want my boys to always remember to be kind and love others, a simple statement that is expressed so eloquently in this lovely piece of art! Love your site!

  38. Dianne Callahan says:

    Hi! This is so amazing … I came across their website a while back and over the weekend I spent a chunk of time unsuccessfully searching through all of the blogs I love trying to find them again…and here you are today. :-) I just like them on Facebook so I won’t lose them again.

    I would really love to have the “you are my sunshine” sign because 4.5 years ago when I was first diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma, that is the song my then 2-year old nephew Noah used to sing with me to help me feel better. But his version went “You are my chunchine, my only chunchine, you make me happy when skies are great. You’ll never know dear how much you love me, please don’t take my chunchine away.” So cute!

    Now, my aggressive cancer has returned and I have been in treatment since November and it is pretty rough. I’m blessed though that sweet Noah will still sing that song with me to make me feel better even though he is a big boy of 6 and a half.

    Thanks for letting me share!!
    Dianne

    • God Bless you & thank you for sharing such a personal part of your life. I am so sorry you are going through all this, it really tugs at the heart. Wishing you strength & peace through this extremely difficult time in your life.

      • Dianne Callahan says:

        Thank you so much Kim. I am so blessed to have this treatment available. I’ll be having a stem cell transplant beginning at the end of the month and I am taking part in a clinical trial. Professionaly, I work with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society helping to raise money to fund vital research into better treatments and cures for the nearly 1 million Americans fighting blood cancers. I am honored to do this work and to be a very small part of the body of research.

  39. Leslie says:

    “You are my sunshine”….This was the only song that I knew the words too to sing to my daughter when my baby girl came home. She is adopted and my husband and I only had 24 hours notice before she came home. This song was a source of comfort to me and still makes me cry when we sing it together six years later. My world became brighter when she came along and this song reminds me of that first day together.

  51. Brittany Sanchez says:

    I love the “You are my sunshine” piece! I sang that to my daughter the whole time I was pregnant. Then the first time I got to hold her in the NICU she was crying and as soon as I started singing our song to her she calmed right down! Such a sweet memory!

  52. Pam says:

    I like the “Kiss your life” piece. I like it because I think more people should live in the ‘now’ of life and not wish it away or wish it were different. I believe that your life is exactly the way you want it to be. Because if you don’t like it, change it. I kiss my life everyday because I love the today that I have created!

    Pam

  53. margaret says:

    I love Kiss Your Life. I would hang it on the wall going down into the basement. I enter the house from this door and looking right at this quote every evening after a crazy long commute would help remind me that I do love what I have and do.

    I would choose the You Are My Sunshine print because I used to sing that song to my son when he was a baby.

  58. Sarah Stahl says:

    Liked, and posted their shop on my fb as their store feeds my shabby chic addiction and I wanted the world to know. My favorite is “you are my sunshine”! My mom used to sing that song to me when I was younger and it reminds me of my sweet childhood…hoping to offer that back to my kids as I do my darnedest to give them a sweet childhood as well.

  59. I love the last one: Remember when you go into the world! Lovely reminders and sentiment!

  62. april v says:

    I love the You Are My Sunshine because thats my daughters favorite song!!

  63. I love the “Remember when…” sign. There is the obvious – that I would love to hang it up in my house because I love the vintage/neutral look. But more importantly, I adore what it says and would love to have it be a motto for our young family of five. And because I’m also quite sappy, I can see this sign going with my oldest son (who is only six) to college to hang in his dorm room. And then later to his first apartment. And then to his first home to hang on the wall and share with his wife and kids…and tell them all about the time his mom won it in a give-away when he was only in kindergarten. {I type with a smile on my face}

    Will spread the word on FB! Thank you kindly!

  64. Diane Zundel says:

    I just love them all and love Kim/Cottage Coastal so much. I would seriously have a hard time picking just one, as they are all so meaningful. I do love you are my sunshine, just because of the special meaning it has to me right now from 2011. I liked Cottage Coastal. Thank you for this awesome opportunity to win a sign from my truly favorite store. XO

  65. Remember When, it the item I love. It just really speaks to me, I would to have it hang by my front door to read each time we left the home…. or just to stare at. I’d love for my daughter to read it and I’d hope it would speak to her as it does to me.

  66. Carrie Walsh says:

    I liked Cottage Coastal on FB. I LoVe the second print “Kiss your life…”. I grew up on the coast of Maine so this style is like ‘home’ to me!

  67. I already like Cottage Coastal on my facebook :)

  68. I shared the giveaway on facebook….

  69. Ashley says:

    I’d love “remember when!” we are big on family mottos. I’d love to hang it in my home as something my family will always have to remember who we are and where we are going. It’s classic and perfect.

  70. Ashley says:

    I liked CC on facebook! :)

  71. Kris Vanatta says:

    I would choose You Are My Sunshine. My mother sang that song to my daughter from the moment of her birth until she passed away when my daughter was four years old. It’s an awesome memory.

  72. Kristen says:

    I love love love the You Are My Sunshine sign! I’ve lived seeing it around the Internet and think it would look awesome in my beach inspired living room!

  82. Andrea Gregory says:

    “Remember when you go…” I adore this one. I tell my boys daily something similar to this. I would love to be able to display it in their play room as another constant reminder to remain true and positive in such a harsh world. What a great mantra!

  83. Megan says:

    Ah! How to choose? I really like them all! I think that I would choose the sunshine one even though I don’t usually tend to go for those things. I just really like it and think it would be fantastic in either my kids room or my room. Thanks for the giveaway!

  84. Kelly says:

    The “Remember when you go into the world…” piece is amazing. I would love to hang that in my son’s room (who will be gaining his brother as a roommate in a few short months…). A perfect message.

    I LOVE the “you are my sunshine” one (ok I love all of them actually) . . . I tell my daughter that all the time :-)

  90. Jennifer says:

    I would pick the Kiss you life one. My daughter had cancer at 8 months and today she is four. She is on a vent and we always look toward the future with hope. Happiness, we have learned is such a gift when it comes your way and with our daughter so ill we have learned to grab “happy” when it comes and to live in the moment. Life is precious!

  91. Jennifer says:

    I liked ‘em on facebook.

  92. Leana says:

    I’d love the “you are my sunshine” art — I sang that song in church when I was five years old and my mom still remembers how cute I sounded!

  93. Lindsay & Brooks says:

    Soo hard to choose which one I would pick! I love the you are my sunshine lyrics, I DIY a sign on an old feed sack to hang in my son’s room already so it may be a bit repetitive. So, I would chose the last option- above all love and you will do wonderful things in this world. Gosh, what a great reminder every day! I’ve liked you on facebook, shared your link on Facebook, and will be secretly hoping my friends don’t win when they enter ;) fingers crossed!

  94. Judy says:

    I would pick Kiss Your Life because I certainly need a reminder to live in the moment and be happy with now.

  95. Judy says:

    I like Cottage Coastal on facebook already.

  96. Tracie says:

    oh Wow! I love the last one! I was in tears when I finished reading it. Wow!

    I am in love with the “I Love You Mucho” freeship. My husband teaches high school Spanish and we try to incorporate our interests into our home as much as possible – this piece with it’s lovely Spanish element would definitely do the trick!!! Plus, my husband does love me mucho!!!

  103. Laura Reich says:

    I would choose the “when you go into the world…” piece. It’s moving and simple and it says exactly what I would want my kids to remember.

  104. Carlyn says:

    All of these are wonderful, but I’d love to have that last one for my kids to read daily, almost like a “family rules” sign to live by ;)
    P.S. I could also look at their site for hours on end!!!

  105. Bethany says:

    Hard to choose, but I immediately connected with “Kiss Your Life.” Just the season I’m in…trying to be grateful for this in front of me.

  121. Penny says:

    I love the last one of the signs. I would put it in my daughters’ room. It would be perfect for them.

  122. Becky Jones says:

    All of the signs are lovely and encouraging but right now I would choose the last one for my girls room..ages 19 and 12…my oldest will be leaving to build her own nest in a few years and while she is here I would love for her to wake and read the life-affirming words on this gorgeous piece…our home is decorated in a shabby chic style and this would fit right in! :) Those words embody what we have tried to teach our children- quite the words to live by!! THANKS so much! Blessings to you all!

  123. Shaunna Ulrick says:

    You are my sunshine. My kindergarten teacher used to sing that to us all the time. Makes me smile!

  124. Penny says:

  125. Stephanie says:

    I think they are all wonderful, but the last one is my favorite. I have young children, so I would love to have this around where they can see it and read it frequently, then get it ingrained in their hearts and minds for when they leave “the nest” someday. Thank you for the chance!

  127. rzg123 says:

    Hands down I would select the “Remember When” piece. I actually came across this about a year ago when my son was born and I fell head over heels in love with it. Unfortunately though, with 2 small children it is out of reach for us. However I have thought of it often. The advice is perfect for little children because they do spend so much time with you, but they will eventually leave you (even for a few hours at school.) When your little ones are out in the world, you want them to not only remember to be good people but to be proud of who they are. I really feel that the words convey this message beautifully — they are very practical and wonderful! It just warms my heart and I would be absolutely honored to have this in my home…seriously!

  128. Penny says:

    I shared the giveaway on FB!

  129. Heidi Giffin says:

    I would LOVE to have the ‘You Are My Sunshine’ piece. I had a music box as a child that played that tune, and now I sing it to my daughter multiple times a day. It’s a true favorite!

  130. Angie M. says:

    You are my sunshine. I sing that to my daughter all the time. Would be a precious piece to hand down to her some day.

  131. Angie M. says:

  132. Christine Berry says:

    I would choose, You are my sunshine. I would always sing that to my oldest daughter, Rachel, and we called her “Raya” when she was little. So the song sounded like we were singing to her. “My Raya Sunshine.” She left for College this past fall and I really miss her.

    #4 definately!!!

  152. Lindsay & Brooks says:

    Soo hard to choose! I love the you are my sunshine lyrics so much that I painted them on an old feed sack and framed it for my son’s room. I’d have to go with the last one. Gosh, what a great reminder to love the world every day! I’ve liked you on Facebook, and shared the link on my wall… Even though I WANT IT ALL TO MYSELF :) fingers crossed!

  153. Kara says:

    I liked them on FB & I posted the giveaway! I would take any of these! I like the “you are my sunshine” the best. It’s a song my daughter & I still sing!

  154. I “like” them :) I would choose the last one. Never too many reminders of those things ….

  155. Katie says:

    I would choose “you are my sunshine”. I love it so much.

  156. Katie says:

    I like them on Facebook.

  157. Carol Ann says:

    I would have to choose “You Are My Sunshine” because my best friend (of 52 years!) and I used to sing this as toddlers on the swingset in the back yard, whistled it as gangly school girls through the gaps in our front teeth, jazzed it up as teenagers trying not to cry because we didn’t have dates to Homecoming, sang it through our noses in the Dorm 10 Talent Show at Auburn and taught it to our children as we sang it to them at bedtime. That song has been with me a long, long time and I never grow tired of it!

  158. Bobbie Hawkes says:

    I would choose the “You are my sunshine” one as my dad calls me sun. It is a favorite song too between my daughter and me. Thanks for the chance to win.

  159. Sheri C says:

    “You are my Sunshine”, I have been singing that song to my kids since they were babies, our daughter and I sing it at night together before bed. It has such special meaning to me. also I found your blog before Christmas and love it, such inspirational photos you have, funny, I was just looking at our dull foyer and wondering what I can do to spruce it up. Good timing. Thanks

  160. Casi Carey says:

    If I could pick, I would LOVE the “you are my sunshine” piece. I have a nine month old daughter and our family moves around a lot, which makes it hard to decorate her room over and over and make it feel like home. It is hard to find things that match so many different bedrooms. (and my husband doesn’t like me to buy new things every time, haha) This would be so beautiful in her room no matter where we live and is always a reminder of how happy she makes me, even when skies are grey!

  161. ann says:

    Love them all, but especially adore the words on the “Go out into the world..” sign. I would hang this is my son’s room. Thanks for the chance!

  162. Anna says:

    I love the Remember When… painting. It would be a great daily reminder of how I should view life.

  163. Casi Carey says:

    I liked cottage coastal on FB AND I facebooked about the giveaway :).

    Just saw my daughter, Brittany’s post about this giveaway.
    Such an awesome gift! I like the “remember when you go int othe world” piece! I will return to this site often!! :-)

  168. Bethany says:

    I am in love with the second one! It fully speaks to where I am right now with two small children, trying to learn to live in the moment and love my life just as it is…to stop waiting for something “grand” to occur, and realize that the life I have is the one the Lord has given me and, because of that, it is the best life that I could ask for. I don’t want any “moments of happiness” to pass me by because I am waiting/looking for something bigger. I want to live Today and Now. I want to “kiss my life” because it is a gift and a life that is truly blessed.

    -I liked them on facebook and wrote a status post about the giveaway!

    I adore the “I love you much” it is so fabulous I love it for my sons room and the finish on it is great!

  174. Jerri C says:

    I love all of these subway prints. #3 speaks to my heart because it reminds me of singing to my babies; who are now 12, 13 & 17. I love #4 because this is the way I try to live each day on this planet. Thanks for the special giveaway.

  175. Alexandra says:

  186. Naomi W. says:

    I love “You are my sunshine”. It is such a happy song! and it seems very old – like the roaring 20’s.

  187. Lauren says:

    1. Tell us which piece you would choose from the options above + why.
    The ” I love you so much…” piece is to die for! I would love to display this at our wedding ceremony and reception on October 20, 2012! It would be such an epic piece to our ceremony, and a beautiful reminder as we enter a marriage after almost 5 years of courtship!

  188. Lauren says:

    2. I liked the Cottage Coastal facebook page. I wish there were a LOVE button.

  189. Eleanor says:

    I teach five and six year olds in northern British Columbia. Every year we make memory books. We compile a school year’s worth of memories into a scrapbook. At the end of each scrapbook, I write a special note to each child with thoughts about their future.
    The last picture has a verse on it that is beautiful and full of all the advice that a little person needs for a good life! The words are truly beautiful! They remind me of something I might wish for for one of my little kidlettes.
    If I win that picture, I am going to display it in my classroom for all to see!
    I liked cottage coastal of Facebook.

  192. Eleanor says:

    Love the last one!

  193. amy says:

    i heart the “kiss your life” painting. it’s a great thought and reminds me of an e.e. cummings poem. it would be such a gentle daily reminder {hanging in my hallway} of the need to embrace each moment. thanks for this great giveaway!

  194. Jodi Smitter says:

    Hello, I love the “Remember When” by Rebecca Puig. I am mother of three children who my husband and I are working very hard to raise with the beliefs in this artwork. It can be hard to remember to love and to be kind when life can be so busy and chaotic. I especially love the line: “explore new paths”…we recently uprooted our family to live in Japan and the experience has been amazing. This painting would reaffirm our commitment to loving everyone and to living life to the fullest everyday!

  207. I love this place! I would love the “you are my sunshine” piece. I recently won a giveaway from Coastal Cottage and got the “you are my sunshine” pillow case. That saying/song holds special meaning to me. It’s the song I sang to my son when I first saw him after he was born. He was rushed to the NICU immediately. I didn’t even get to see him or hold him. An hour after giving birth,I finally got to see him in the NICU…. that song just came out:) Those were my first words to him :) Oh geez, now I’m crying!!!!! ahhhh!

  208. maggie says:

    Oh, I’ve been eyeing these in their shop. I think I would pick the remember when one but it would be a tough choice because the kiss your life one is a great reminder. They are all beautiful. Hope this is the giveaway that breaks the never winning anything streak we’ve got going on! Thanks for the chance ;)

  215. Ashley says:

    There are too many neat products to choose from but I would probably choose a sign, either the “Always Keep Your Beautiful Imagination” sign or the “Kiss your Life” sign

  223. Kim says:

    I absolutely love the first one “I Love You Much Most Beautiful Darling”. It could apply to one’s child or a significant other…it would actually be something for my daughter, though. She’s the reason I’m on this earth.

    I liked on Facebook and posted on twitter :) Amazing discovery, this Cottage Coastal. I’ll have to show my father!

    Without a doubt, it would be the “You are my sunshine” art. It’s one of the songs I sing to my daughter before bedtime.

  237. Jen H says:

    I would love the “you are my sunshine” one. My best friend and I used to harmonize that song as teenagers. She now lives across the country and when I think of that song it brings back many wonderful memories!

  238. Malissa M says:

    Love all of them!! If I had to choose I think I’d pick the last one. Crossing my fingers! :-)

    I am already a fan of the site….best coastal site on FB.
    “You are my sunshine….” is my favorite. Says it all and has been making people smile for years! (Now that tune will be in my head all day! Lucky me!).

  249. Tami Ostrum says:

    I shared on FB. I love the “You are my sunshine” picture!! I used to always sing that to my boys, and now I sing it too my beautiful grandson!! I live 5 states away from him and would love to have the picture to remind me of him everyday!! Love love love it!!

  250. Kimberly Kaufer says:

    I would choose the “Kiss your Life” artwork above….because its so true. I lost my 31 year old sister 2 years ago……and no one spends their 20’s thinking that they may not have next year with their family, that they may not have the opportunity to travel, or to raise your child. My sister always thought that she would “someday” do these things, but that was not the case. Truly….kiss your life today….just as it is.

  251. Robin says:

    You are My Sunshine would be the one that would bring a smile to my face and joy to my day for years to come! Every night my little boy wiggles up into my lap, puts his hands on my face, smiles and says “My Sunshine, Mommy” Then we sing these words on this sign together over and over “More Sunshine, Mama, More Sunshine!” It’s the best part of evrey day! Some day (too soon) he won’t want to crawl into Mommy’s lap anymore and this sign would be such a perfect reminder of these sweet moments spent together.

  252. I would choose Kiss Your Life!

    I love ALL of these – but if I had to choose – would select ‘You are my sunshine” and surprise my husband with incorporating it into our master bedroom reno… it was the song we were playfully singing while strolling through the park the day he ProPosed!!

  261. Christina says:

    I choose the Kiss your Life one. I was in a car accident on Christmas Eve that could have been WAY worse.It made me think for a second how I’m always wanting more when I have all I need. We all do. The accident shook me at first, but I realized how lucky I am. Sometimes we all need the reminder. I’d rather have this sign, than another accident ;)

  280. I love the remember when. .It reminds me of my children, which always make me smile. I dread the day they all move on in the world

  281. Doris says:

    I love the 2nd one because it is so true that we need to love our lives and what we are blessed with. All too often we see the glass as half-empty instead of seeing as half-full.

  282. Eric says:

    I like the second one best because we should not compare our lives to others. God made is unique for a purpose. We can each shine in our corner of the earth.

  283. Nancy says:

    My husband and I bought a new home about a year ago and then brought a new baby boy into that home about 7 months ago.
    Unfortunately we have had some major issues with the house making me want to give up on it, but my husband still loves it and is committed to making the issues better. This is our only source of argument, and I just hate the bitter person it has made me into. Just this morning, we argued about it while I was holding my son getting ready to leave for work.
    I just wish I would realize how truly blessed I am….I have a loving husband, I have a healthy son, I have a job to go to, and I do have a roof over my head.
    This contest comes at the perfect time as I know I need to “KISS MY LIFE”…just as it is. I’m so hopeful to get this beautiful piece of artwork to hang in my very lovely home and let it remind me of my many blessings.

    I’m so glad that I now “LIKE” you on Facebook and that I let all my Facebook friends know about you by sharing it on my page!

    I would choose the last sign. Why? I am a huge quotes and mantra person and actually keep a notebook of anything inspirational or something that is meant to remind us. As I work to make a career change after losing a job I adored, this would look wonderful in my studio but most importantly remind me of where I came from and where I need to go without having to rummage through my handy-dandy notebook!

I liked and shared it on facebook and hope I can hang that piece of art on my wall one day…:)

    I love them all, but ‘kiss the day’ really speaks to me right now. I went to through a divorce 2 years ago after a 20 year marriage and I am having a hard time moving on. This is an excellent reminder to embrace today and not yesterday and not been fearful or anixous about tomorrow.

  318. Pamela C. says:

    Tough choice. As much as I love the first one and the “you are my sunshine” one, I would probably pick the fourth one because it is great advice.
