My First and Possibly Only


"Bob, tell them what they might win."

Last week, I'm blogging away and going through my emails when I receive an email from a representative of

I had never heard of this online store which is actually like 200 stores all together where you can find tv stands, furniture, toys, home decor, and so much more! Anyway, their lovely representative....Eileen said she loved the high quality look and feel of my blog (flattery will get you everywhere) and wondered if I would be interested in doing a giveaway for my readers. I told her I'd have to check out their store first before I could commit. 

Well, I went there and did a search...which takes awhile because they have so many stores and products to choose from. There products range from furniture to home accessories to kitchen necessities to home improvement products such as flooring and name it and they seem to have it. Plus....and are you ready for this...most things have FREE shipping! That's definitely a plus.

So I wrote back to Eileen and said yes...I'd talk about their store (she said I didn't have to, but I wanted to because it's so awesome) and give my readers the chance to win something from their store.

I decided to go on an imaginary shopping trip and just pick out things I would buy from there if I had all the money in the world to spend. They have products in every price point from very budget friendly up to high end. There is truly something for everyone. They also have all styles from Traditional to Modern to Transitional to Contemporary.

I decided to focus most of my shopping adventure on

(one of their many stores)

First thing...I went looking for the venetian mirror I've been wanting for my hallway...there it was...just the one I've been wanting...

I have just the perfect spot for this mirror. This was in the regular

Then I headed to

I thought I might buy this sofa for my office / library but there were so many styles it was really hard to decide.

Then I found this lamp....that just seems so Hollywood it would be hard to resist

I thought this was a cool chandelier...Would I put it in my house? it sure would be cool at my work office.

I liked this lamp too

and this headboard was dreamy and very inexpensive

Then I focused on finding the Saarinen table that I blogged about last week...

They had it!

I thought I might pair it with the ghost chairs that they carry also...but those chairs have been so over exposed...everyone has used them...

so instead I thought this chair would be perfect and is comes in several transparent colors

Aren't they darling? They look like bamboo but are made of lucite.

So pretty...

then I found the perfect chandelier that would tie the whole room together...

What fun!

Let's imagine what it would all look like together

here in a room

a couple of other things I need...

and of saw it coming...This place has everything...I want...including the perfect...

kitchen sink.

Now...for your part. If you'd like to be entered in the drawing to win a $50 gift Certificate from just leave me a comment and tell me what you would spend your $50 on (if you don't have to). You'll get two entries if you leave me a comment and become a follower of my blog. If you leave me a comment, but are already a follower of my blog...then you automatically get two entries. You can enter through Sunday night, May 2.

I'll do a drawing and announce the winner here after Sunday. 

That's pretty easy, right? Can't wait to hear about what you would use your $50 for...they have anything and everything you might imagine.

I decided to extend this giveaway till Tuesday night...May 4 because my plan was to link up to some parties this weekend creating more exposure but that didn't happen until Sunday late afternoon. So you still have time to enter!

How exciting that is!!! I love CSN...*if* I won (it's rare) then I would probably buy a wall clock since I'm in need of one.

This is awesome! I'm a follower! And I have no idea how I would spend that money, there are so many awesome things at CSN, I would be online for hours changing my mind, LOL!

Love the mirror and the ghost chairs and the table and the headboard and and and... Too much to choose from.

Mary Ann said...

I'm a follower. I have never shopped at a CSN store so it would be really hard for me to make a decision about what to get, however, if I won a gife card, I am sure I could come up with something.

Meander said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the ghost chairs. Always have, always will!!! :)

The Chick said...

Since I'm going to get to finally decorate with the girly things I have always loved I would get this...

This is great! I love the photos of the objects you found at CSN Stores. I might buy something just for pleasure if I win, but I need a new blender, so that would be the practical thing to buy.

Colleen at Forty Something Bride said...

I am following, and I thought I would mention that if I won, I would go to the Baby store and pick up a "Daddy bag" for my would be the hint that he should pitch in to help my SIL when the baby comes in August!

Peggy said...

I didn't know anyone was making a chiavari chair in the ghost style- it's so cool! Thanks for sharing it!

Love the mirror, and it's perfect for your home.

I need light fixtures for my hallways, to replace a couple of really ugly 80s white balls hanging from flush mounts. They are so very - - yuk. The one in front of our wonderful 8 ft. built-in bookcase is especially annoying as we can see it from the living room.

Help me, please! : ) -- HollyM
