A Giveaway

>> Wednesday, May 12, 2010

I never cease to be amazed by the blogging community. I raised almost $300 dollars yesterday towards the reconstruction of my mom's house thanks to my terrific, amazing blog friends. And in the spirit of giving, CSN has asked me to host a $60 gift certificate giveaway that can be used  in any of their 200 online stores. Here are a few things I would pick.

They have an amazing selection of lighting. Remember the Tolomeo lamp from the Brad Ford project I posted? They have it. Free shipping, and you can get if for $60 dollars off!

And I wish I were giving away some modern classics. But since I'm not, how about modern classics on a pillow? These are all less than $60, so you could basically pick one for free.
And I am loving this Kartell Charles Ghost Stool. Wouldn't it be cute pulled up to a makeup vanity?
And for the modern baby...Kartell Lou Lou Ghost Chair! ridiculous, but cute
To enter, leave a comment. If you "follow" the blog, let me know and I'll enter you twice.
I'll pick a winner next Wednesday, the 19th. Good Luck!

Praying for everyone affected by the flooding!

Ellie May 12, 2010 at 11:59 AM  

Thank you for posting about the flood yesterday. Like you I honestly had never really seen or realized that damage a flood can do. I forwarded your post to numerous people, hopefully it will yield in some funds for the community!

So fingers crossed for the win! And of course I follow your blog! You had me at the chevron contact paper project— which is on my summer "Project To Try" list as soon as I can find some good affordable contact paper :D

Christina May 12, 2010 at 12:06 PM  

Thanks for the contest! (and I'm a follower and fan of your blog).

As an ex-Bostonian who misses home, I love following your blog, especially when you post photos of my old haunts. And like Ellie, I appreciated you documenting the personal effect the flooding down South has had on your family. I hope your loved ones are safe and slowly getting back on their feet after that devastation!

Those classic pillows are amazing! I'd love to buy the entire set for my living room.

Rebecca May 12, 2010 at 12:30 PM  

They have so many great throw pillows in their shop! I'd love a couple to spruce up our room!

. . . and I follow :)

Vicki @ Piccolo Takes All May 12, 2010 at 12:43 PM  

Ooh...we need a light in our pantry so badly. I guess they didn't think one would need to see their pantry at night when they built our house in the early 19-teens?

I, too, was turned onto your blog when D*S shared your chevron wall project. Now I subscribe to Sabbespot and read every post. (And in a somewhat ironic twist, I have a backlog of over 100 unread D*S posts...They just post WAY TOO MUCH for me to keep up!!!)

Thanks for having a real blog. Please know that it does not go unappreciated.

I hope your Mom gets all the help she needs and that she feels all the positive energy being sent her way, along with all of the other flood victims. I follow your blog.

Hooray! I tweeted and posted on Facebook about your mom's place. I'm glad people are coming out of the woodwork to help out!

I would love to win a little something from CSN...I get to giveaway things sometimes, but have never won anything from them. Oh, and I'm definitely a follower. :)

Lauren May 12, 2010 at 1:50 PM  

Ohhh neat-o! I'm loving the pillow with the red chair or the rocker...When little Henry goes into a big bed, we plan to add a DIY chest (red with chalkboard) and a "true size" rocker chair like the one on the pillow! Modern rocker boy! LOVE!

Of course I follow your blog! You are my favourite blogger! Thanks for all the great design ideas. My husband LOVES the Eames chair, so maybe a pillow is in our budget!

wise craft May 13, 2010 at 12:04 AM  

what an awesome giveaway! And I'm very sorry about the flood, but am always warmed by the blogging community at large. Good people.

RebekahBridge May 13, 2010 at 12:48 AM  

It's good to see how people come together to help others out. I would be even better if a disaster wasn't needed to get there though! :) Thanks for the fun give away opportunity!

Green Madison May 13, 2010 at 11:11 AM  

Stephanie, I also want to say thank you for posting on the flooding. I went to New Orleans and Mississippi a few times after Katrina to help clean out houses and it's so important that people see the damage that can be done.

And, of course, I want to enter for the giveaway! I'm a follower of your blog as well! Hope I get it. My family has been on a tight budget lately so a free gift card would be a VERY welcome treat.

Hope your mom's doing well!

Erin S,  May 13, 2010 at 11:21 AM

Thanks for sharing the flood pictures- it's heartwarming that the blogging community can come together over such tragedy.
