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."
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
