barn owl primitives {giveaway!}

Hey friends! If you look at my blog regularly or you follow me on instagram, then you probably know that I love barn owl primitives! Kristi’s hand-painted art is absolutely adorable–and I love the sentiment behind it. Her work is just lovely. Check out her shop and you’ll fall in love too! I’ll take one of each please!

And guess what? Target fell in love with her art and licensed some of her designs. How cool is that?!

I have her fall bunting sign up in my living room and it gets so many comments when people come over. Tons of fun! And I blogged about our ‘family rules’ here. 

Today we are giving away one of Kristi’s ‘be real’ canvases. This piece is available at Target. Oh how I love Target! Barn Owl Primitives and Target–maybe two of my favorite things. Just leave a comment and tell us what you LOVE about barn owl primitives. Be sure to facebook, blog and tweet for extra entries. Just leave a comment for each entry.

Happy Friday friends!

Shop Barn Owl Primitives here. Connect with Barn Owl Primitives on Facebook.


  1. OHHH! I love the sunshine one! I just LOVE her shop! I love target too! If I win, I would want to give the ‘sunshine’ one to my mom! She always calls her grandkids, her shineshine! She is re-doing her office and the theme is yellow and black! It would be perfect!

  2. i’ve had my eye on this exact one at Target! it’s hard to find one that i agree on everything it says. this one comes the closest.

  3. I heart words, so these works of art are just my thing…I love surrounding myself with words that encourage and inspire! Thanks for the giveaway! ~C

  4. I was in Target today and I didn’t even look at the home decor as my youngest kept finding “really awesome”things for her room {like a duvet cover that was covered in video tapes…but they were really covered in cassette tapes and when I corrected her she told me it was the same difference…old stuff} LOL.

    I love Barn Owl Primitives and wish I could put some up on my walls. Maybe I will get lucky for Christmas!

  5. Little hits (and hints) of inspiration throughout the home…that’s what I like about the designs. Would love one for every room!

  6. Love! Especially the Family Rules Fun and Whimsical one…but any of her pieces would be a blessing to own. And Yah, Target, I love you even more now! 🙂

  7. I love the You Are My Sunshine Piece. It makes me smile every time I see it! 🙂 How fun to have Barn Owl Primitives at Target, too. Yea!

  13. I love everything about Barn Owl Primitives. Each item is so cute. I love the vintage distressed look, I love the sayings, the colors…just everything. So cute & creative.

  14. what i love about barn owl primitives is that when i look at one of their signs i feel like it is something i would say – like “exactly!!”
    does that make sense??? :))))

  15. I love all of it but my favorites are the fall sign ( with bunting) and the “You are my Sunchine” in primary colors! Awesome contest!,

  16. Sometimes I feel like signs like this are too corny…but I have to say I really like the season signs…might need to take a trip to Target! (unless I win…haha). I had not seen them at Target…but will definitely check them out next time I venture out there. (luckily for me…it’s not too close to home…because I ALWAYS find things I want/need at Target.) Thanks for giving us a peek at your friend’s work…it makes me stop to look at things I might not otherwise notice.

  17. Oh my goodness, I might have one of her signs from Target! A different one though. I LOVE the one in the giveaway!! From her site, I also love the Mom’s Diner sign and the Mealtime Blessing sign.

  18. Love the fonts that she uses! I have been following her on FB for awhile and she has beautiful things! Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I love, love Christi’s work & the messages that Barn Owl Primitives share. It’s like they took words & phrases right out of my own head. You can’t help but feel good when you gaze on one of these pieces~

  26. The words, phrases and lyrics that Kristi chooses to share with us, through her art, bring special and happy memories to mind. She reminds us what is important in her own special way and she always brings a smile to my face.

  27. BOP’s designs are words to live by and inspire us, and are designed in a way where they are beautiful to display and share it with all who get to see them. <3

  28. Hi have one of her hand painted “Keep Calm and Carry On” signs in my master bedroom. It brings a smile to my face whenever I see it! Her talent is amazing and she has such a great eye for design! I’d LOVE to win this!! 🙂

  29. I love that the message is always something meaningful and I LOVE the color choices. Always perfectly coordinate with the message.

  30. I love the colors in the Barn Owl Primitives artwork – honestly, when I saw ‘primitives’ in the company name I thought of all the dark dreary ‘antique’ shoppes that used to dot our Main Street, but browsing the site gave me an entirely different perspective! Fresh! Bright! Inspiring!

  31. Fall is my favorite season for many of the reasons listed in the fall canvas! What a great way to capture many great moments all in one piece.

  32. I love the blue inspiration piece – not only are the words encouraging, but the design and color fits perfectly into my girls’ room. I will be checking my Target for it! 🙂

  33. I just love the sayings. “We can do hard things” is one of my favorites. Thanks for introducing me to her shop. I’m definitely going to take a longer look.

  34. I love her pieces. That she can take little pieces of everyday life, beautiful sayings and put them in the right words on a piece of art to look at everyday. She makes beautiful reminders of beautiful things 😉

  35. I LOVE the BE print – it’s everything that my family strives to be as individuals. What a great reminder to have in your home! Plus, it perfectly matches the color of my coffee table! Congrats to Kristi – what a great accomplishment for Target to pick it up!

  36. I think Ive seen this art at Target. I love it because its cheery, homey, and positive art. Would love this in my home.

  39. I absolutely LOVE the “You Are My Sunshine” piece. My dad used to sing it to me, and now I sing it to my children.

  40. i love them too. If you ask me, which you didn’t, but I think Target should have asked earlier. They are awesome and so much fun. They help make a house a home.

  41. I am all about great quotes and great wording as decorations in the home to give us simple reminders everyday! Love these signs…they would make a great addition to any home.

  42. I love the understated way she captures the every day specialness of life in her work. When you read her works of art, you instantly are reminded to appreciate the simple wonders around you and take time to remember the little things that make life so precious. Basically, they just make you want to smile!

  43. I absolutely LOVE the Autumn Harvest Typography Word Art Plaque!! This is my kind of art and fall is my kind of season 🙂
    Everything in her shop is awesome :))

  44. I love the modern look of word art and the fact that these have a vintage appearance too! Also, they are so encouraging!!!

  45. I love the simplicity of everything in her shop! i can imagine EVERYTHING that she paints on a wall in my house, and that’s a wonderful bind to be in! She does a great job and all the signs are super cute!

  46. Oh my – I love Kristi! She is such a sweetheart & has such a giving heart. I have her “our nest” sign in our entryway & hope to add many more pieces in the future!
    Thanks for yet another give away!!

  47. I have looked at their stuff before and I love it all. So simple. Winning one would inspire me to declutter and further simplify my own life and rooms. Hope i win. Of course if I don’t, decluttering will still need done. How does the start of school bring in so much “stuff”? 🙂

  48. First of all, what’s not to love? I’ve been loving Barn Owl for quite some time now…the colors & the sentiments on each print. Soooo cool they’re at Target now!!

  49. I love the simplicity of Barn Owl Primitives. They’re rustic and primitive but can hold their own in a traditional or contemporary setting. A great all-around piece of art. I will definitely check them out at Target!

  50. Love the beautiful teal color on the background and the different colored flags at the top! Most of all though I love the words and the message of this particular sign!

  51. I love the lettering on these signs, and the words as well! I am such a visual person that the first thing I see are colors and the style of the letters. Then I take the time to see what it is I am looking at! Target is a great store.

  52. I’m in Target almost every day…I’m kinda obsessed BUT I haven’t seen these yet. Maybe they haven’t made it to the midwest? 🙂 I love the bunting with the beautiful teal color. Will have to check out her website! Thanks for sharing!

  53. I love these signs…they are great hanging by the back door to give us a reminder of the important things before we head out each day!
