My Very First Giveaway~

March 26, 2010



I have been blogging for almost 6 months now, not quite but almost. It has been a fun journey and what I love the most is being inspired by all the talent that I have met along the way. 


So.....


 What a great way to celebrate than have a giveaway! 


Recently CSN stores approached me to do a giveaway....
(Lucky you, as I have yet to win a giveaway - I have entered many but nothing...sniff)


I thought to myself, what perfect timing.


If you have ever stumbled across any CSN online store you will know that they have a multitude of online shops that sell kids bedding,  furniture, cookware, and even pet furniture! I spent a whole afternoon just browsing through their many sites.

 What I stumbled across were all the pretty dishes they sell. I love pretty dishes and feel you can never have enough dishes in the house.  


CSN stores are offering this lovely pasta serving dish by Reco as a giveaway prize. It comes in a variety of colours. 



I like it in red, but it also comes in green and white. If you are the lucky winner you could choose the colour. Not only could you serve pasta in this bowl but use it to serve up healthy salad greens, display fruit on the kitchen counter, serve popcorn on movie nights, or use it to hold keys. 


Think of all the possiblities....

How to enter: so simple and easy.

1. For one entry, leave me a comment, telling me how you would use this bowl.

2. For another entry become a follower or if you already are, let me know!

 Make sure you leave a comment each time you enter.

Don't forget to give me your email if there isn't a link in your profile so I can pass along the prize to you!

I will take your entries until 7 am (pst) March 31 (Wednesday). I'll choose a winner at random and announce sometime on Wednesday.

This is open to both US and Canadian residents.

  1. Congratulations on 6 months of blogging! Time flies doesn't it?

    I would pick the white color and I would use it in the kitchen. I'm going to be taking some of my cabinet doors off soon and creating open shelves and painting the insides of the open cabinets. This bowl will look perfect with all my other white pieces!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Oh, I'd use that bowl to house all the lemons and limes I always have on hand in my kitchen. Everything (well, almost everything) tastes better with a little lemon or lime mixed in!
