Let’s go shopping …

Next to sewing, napping and baking …

Well shopping is right up there with the things I love to do.

Seriously, I enjoy it SO much I actually like grocery shopping. Costco thrills me. The mall has been a ‘date night’ destination for many years. I dreamed of being a personal shopper. In fact, if someone is hiring, I’ll consider giving up some of my sewing hours for shopping :).

But in all honesty, I don’t GO shopping that much. Sure I run errands and grab groceries … but if I’m going to ‘leisurely window shop’ its usually on the computer.

So, when the nice folks at CSN stores contacted me about hosting a giveaway … I jumped up and down and said … I’d love to. After all it would give me an excuse to do a little personal shopping for my readers.

CSN is offering one of YOU a $35 gift certificate to one of their many shops (including their modern dining room furniture shop). You’ve heard of them right? They’ve got a great marketing campaign … sort of grass roots in nature … soliciting fun bloggers (I added the fun part) to host giveaways to draw in new customers. I like, I like …

Take a looksey at what I picked out for ya:

{Bird Pillows – LOVE these! They inspired the rest of the items … so if you hate these colors … well, stop reading now. Also, let me make it clear that there is a very good chance you will see a camera strap slipcover colorway in these very colors.}
{This wall paper would be so fun in a powder room … or baby’s nursery.}

{How fun is this globe? I’m sure you’ve seen several bloggers decorating beautifully with globes.}

{You know I love orange. After all … you don’t have an orange front door and an orange accent wall if you don’t. Just sayin’.}

{Okay, I can’t help but think of the rest of the people in my family while shopping. So I immediately thought of my son and how cute these would be in his robot room.}

{This is just plain silly and would make paperwork a whole lot more fun!}

{My sweets loves a good throw blanket … and I love a blanket that adds a splash of color to our neutral couch. Win-win.}

{Again … the orange. But oh, the typography. Ahhh, makes my Graphic Design degree smile.}
Do you like? Are you itchin’ to go shopping?

Well guess what? All of the items shown are $50 or less (except for the wallpaper which is $60) … which means if you WIN, you’ll only have to shell out a little bit of cash for a fun new addition for your home. And it appears that shipping is FREE right now. Nice!
Enter to win (1) $35 gift certificate, one comment for each chance::
  • Leave a comment telling me your favorite item above. Or if you hate it all, please tell me that too … then I can give up on my dream of being a personal shopper.

Happy Creating!


  1. Drat. Nobody ever picks number one. Oh, well, I never win, anyway, so might as well get this party started for someone else! Honestly, I’ve never heard of CSN, so after this I’m gonna head on over there and see what the fuss is all about. You’ve done your job!

    LOVE the bird pillows. Honestly, I just love birds in any form–crazy about them–and the colors are such fun! So those are my first choice–although the magnetic paper clip treasure would be FAB sitting on my piano waiting to corral students’ music.

    Wouldn’t being someone’s personal shopper be an absolute hoot?

    Guess I’ve rambled enough. I’ll give someone else a turn.

    Thanks for the chance!
