It’s A Giveaway Party and Celebration!

I have a wonderful surprise for you!  While I was on vacation I was contacted by the fine folks at CSN Stores.  It seems they have taken note of my blog and offered me the chance to sponsor a giveaway or review an item for myself.

 Oh, I sooo had to debate on this one!  You see there are numerous things I could certainly use for myself or someone near and dear to me, like my son who is in culinary school and living on his own down in Charleston.  He sure could use some more serious kitchen cookware, like a nice dutch oven for example!   Heck, I could actually even use one of these myself!   Then maybe I would be assured he would cook a fabulous meal for me when he comes home.  Pretty sneaky thinking huh?   Just browsing all the selections available at the CSN Stores websites showed they have certainly come along way baby!  You can still get an original style from days of old like this one below.

 My son would certainly get a kick out of this 42″ dutch oven tripod from Camp Chef.   

Only I would prefer this beautiful Caribbean blue 6.5qt. dutch oven from Le Crueset.

Or this pretty green 7 qt cast iron dutch oven from Rachel Ray

Or maybe this gorgeous basil green Coq Au Vin Dutch Oven from Staub 

However, I’d bet my young Chef would prefer something more like this huge anodized 8.5 Qt Dutch oven from Calphalon.  Very industrial!  Oh, the decisions I would have to make!  It really was a tough call!

However, being the recent recipient of a fabulous giveaway myself,  I have decided it best to pay it forward. 

   I am pleased and thrilled to be able to bring you another opportunity to win a $40.00 gift certificate that can be used towards the purchase of any one of their thousands of online store items at CSN Stores.  Please be aware though of extra international shipping charges to those outside of the U.S. including Canada.   So now you get to be the one to make all the decisions!  LOL!

All you need to do to enter my giveaway is follow the instructions below for 3 chances to win.  I am going to allow 2 weeks for this giveaway so I will have enough time to try and figure out how to use a number generator.  Here’s what you need to do…

1. Leave me a comment about something you would spend your gift certificate towards.
2. Become a follower and/or leave me a message that you are one.
3. Post a link to my giveaway on your blog too!

Not so hard is it?  I am so happy for you and can’t wait to get this party started!  I really do appreciate this opportunity and hope it won’t be the last time I hear from these wonderful people over at CSN Stores!

Woohoo!  Now to tell you all about my good fortune.   Before I went on vacation last week I found out that I was a winner too! Yay! Can you imagine my excitement to find out that I had won the fabulous book giveaway from Kat @ http://lowtidehighstyle.blogspot.com/.

 If you are not familiar with her blog you are really missing out on something special. She is a very interesting and talented free lance writer who shares her work and her world with us through her blog. Her work often features some of the most beautiful places you can imagine! It is always an adventure to stop in as you can be assured you will see stunning photographs and get the complete and captivating stories behind the photos when you visit her site.

Such was the case when I visited her site on this day and entered the following giveaway, @ http://lowtidehighstyle.blogspot.com/2010/06/house-at-royal-oak-and-giveaway.html.

My win, the book entitled, “The House at Royal Oak”, is a story, written by owner, Carol Rizzoli chronicling her life and changes during the renovation of an old house in ruins towards the creation of a wonderful bed and breakfast inn. You can view actual photos taken by Kat from this inn at the link above.

 I cannot wait to kick off my shoes and settle back on my hammock and escape into this wonderful story! Thank you so much dear, I am really looking forward to enjoying the tale of this woman’s journey!

Thank you all for visiting me today and I look forward to hearing from you!  Good luck to each of you!  Let’s party!
