Fabulous GiveAway!! In Celebration of My New Blog Design & Spring.

Alessi's Nuvem Wire Flower Vase by Fratelli Campana. (SKU#AAS1362)

Is this gorgeous vase the give-away item? Well, yes . . . it could be if you end up being the lucky winner and want it! The absolutely greatest thing is you get to choose what you want, courtesy of CSN Stores -- a place where you can find virtually anything you need -- from sofas to cookware.  

CSN Stores ' offer to have Love Where You Live host a give-away came at a time when I just re-designed my blog. They asked if I wanted to review an item or give away something. The blogging community, and all readers and visitors have been so kind to me that I wanted one of you to get something great!

So, what do you think? I've got a new "header." And a new look overall. Did you notice? Before, it was a spectacular view of the Colorado Rockies (now pictured on the sidelines). Meet our handsome Australian Shepherd, Sam. He's standing (and smiling even!) in the sitting area of a historic home (circa 1892) we once owned on Galveston Island. I plan to share some photos of that house soon, because I still love it. We enjoyed some good times there! So, keep an eye out. I'd love for you to visit. I also plan to list -- sooner as opposed to later -- on the side here some of my favorite books on architecture and design. If you don't have them, you might want to take a look. I hope you like how it's all evolving. Oh, and I may rotate out some photos for the header -- just for kicks and to keep it interesting. I say that in case you come here and don't initially recognize "me."

OK . . . on with the give-away! I had an especially great time browsing CSN's 
All Modern site!! So fun.  And they had all the names: Hermann Miller, Knoll, Kartell, Alessi, BluDot, Emeco, Dwell Studios as well as others. I lean mostly toward traditional decor but, yet, I do love mixing it up! I like to add touches of modern to keep a space youthful and unpredictable. Here are a few of my picks from either All Modern or their cooking site (but, remember, the winner will have full access to all of their store sites ):


Vondom Fano Cuenco Flower Pot (SKU #VOM1040)


KOKO Company's Yellow and Turquoise floormat, 4x6 (SKU#TKC1208)


Bloomus Greens Planter Wheels (SKU#RY1311)



Le Creuset 12-oz. mugs (SKU#LEC 2085)



Cuisinart round Classic Waffle Maker (SKU#CUI 1093)



nonNeutral Season Metal Lantern (SKU NON1200)

My give-away winner will be able to choose his or her "prize." CSN can only ship in the U.S. and Canada. (I will look into hosting another giveway another time where all my other friends can participate. So stay tuned, please.) CSN will give you -- the winner of this giveaway -- a promotional code for up to $60 to spend. You also will have the option to apply it to something that you find and costs more. Here's what you do to get a chance -- or 5 Chances -- at winning:

1. Leave a Comment.
2. Join my blog as a "Follower."
3. Blog about this giveaway on your blog or share it on Facebook. Or Tweet. 
4. Join my Facebook "fan" page
5. Browse the CSN site(s) and let me know what you'd pick.

After you leave a comment, you essentially can receive four more chances. You will have to leave a comment each time to note you've done this or that, though, so you get appropriate credit. 

I will announce the winner on Friday, May 21, at 6 p.m. central time. Be sure to leave your email or check back on Friday, May 21, at 6 p.m. central time. I'll need to know how to contact you in order to get you the promotional code. (If there is no email initially left, I will wait 24 hours before drawing again an alternate winner's name.)

Thank you. And have fun....-susan

Hi Susan,

Yes, you know I noticed your new layout and am really liking it. Thanks for answering my question about the header and I can't wait until you show us the Galveston Home that used to be yours. Please don't leave us waiting for too long. Did you take all of your furniture when you left or did you leave it and sell some of it with the house, 'cause they are some seriously gorgeous chairs on your header!!! Do you think it's healthy we have this obsession with chairs???? Anyway, gorgeous Autumn day here so I'd better make the most of it. Good luck to everyone in the giveaway in the U.S.A. You lucky things!!!!
Take care Susan,
Janine

Just tickled that a dear friend invited me to your blog! Very inspirational design perspective! After reviewing the CSN website- am definitely feelin' the Euro Pro Electric Steam mop- with all the pets we have it would be very appreciated!

Hi Everyone!
Be sure to comment each time you do one or all of the five things. That way my counter will take note. So, in other words, if you do all 5, then there should be 5 comments from you. Thank you for coming by -- and good luck to you all! cheers,-susan

Question- in the photo on your blog page - I really like the window treatment - lots of light and privacy.
Would you let me know how to hang a shade at that level- what you used and how?!! I would really like to try that as we have lower windows too.

Sue Murphy said...

Hi Susan I haven't been by for awhile. Love your new look.

Melanie said...

I love shopping CSN for accent pillows. Ann Gish, Thomas Paul and they have really cute KoKo ones that would nicely update my boring sofa.
