  36. For sure, I'd get the "Hark the sound of Tarheel Voices" from the NC section! LOVE these!

    brookelhardin@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  37. Definitely either the "Love me some Jesus" or the "Old South" because they dont have anything specifically for Louisiana! They are perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd chose the Old Dominion print because my wife and I live in Virginia, Roanoke to be exact.

    We've already purchased two other prints -- the Tarheel Voices and Dixie -- in addition to a T-shirt.

    Old Try has captured the style of the South in a way I haven't seen before. I'm excited to see what prints they release next!

  39. I'd have to choose the Old Dominion print since I live in Virginia and love it!

  66. The hubby just wrote a bunch of Folk songs about Colonial America (he is super nerdy). These are all very much on theme. I would say one of each...but I think "Love Me Some Jesus" would do great in the house.

  110. I love The Old Dominion print. This print would be a perfect wedding gift for my sister and her soon-to-be new husband (11 days and counting). She's from Michigan and he's from South Carolina and where'd they meet?...Virginia of course. This print would hang beautifully in their new home, which happens to be right across the street from mine, so I could enjoy it a bit too.
