Free stuff! For Free! My dad always said nothing is free. Well guess what Big Joe?

You be WRONG YO! (except for the tiny thing you have to do to be elligble for the giveaway)

I was recently contacted by CSN Stores about providing a $40 gift card to my awesome readers. After looking on their plethora of all encompassing websites, I knew this would be a great deal. Not to sound like a used car salesman or anything ... BUT... if you want:

Kitchenware - It's like a kitchen gadget heaven.

Furniture - Bedroom, Living Room, Bathroom.... You name it, they've got it.

Lighting - They have all kinds of lighting., including hanging pendants, track lighting, and lamps. You will never be without light again.

Dinnerware - Glassware, table settings, and anything you could possibly think of to decorate your table.

And the list goes on....

Here are some products that caught my eye (Note that they are all cooking and and entertaining related... are you surprised?!):

Microplane Grater? This is a must have. How did I ever live without my Microplane. Zest and Grate with ease my friends. It's a life changer. YUP, I said life changer.

These precious baking cups could be used for so many things.

Are these personalized wine glasses perfect for a dinner party or what? And they TRIPLE as a wine glass (duh), party favor and place card! Personally, I love things with my name on it.... because I love me.

These bee glasses are precious and the price is right! Perfect for a spring or summer garden party.

Rules and Regulations
(I am trying to make this sound super official... I don't know why.):

To be eligible for the $40 gift card to CSN Stores all you have to do is:

1) Leave a comment below telling me which item you would purchase from CSN Stores.

2) To add an extra entry (and give me a little love), become a follower of mine (or tell me you are already a follower). Be sure to leave a comment telling me you are a follower or that you have come to the dark side! (aka you have become a follower of mine)

That's it! Just enter the giveaway and let the good luck fairy find you. This giveaway ends at midnight on Thursday, May 6th. I will announce the lucky winner on Friday morning.
Good luck everyone!

    I have become a devoted follower and love your blog :) If I won, I would get the cute baking cups or the bee glasses. (or both - I always overspend when I get a giftcard - those people know what they're doing!) I'm throwing my mom a surprise retirement party next month and think they'd make a fun, whimsical spring-time touch! Plus her classroom has been 3B for the past 15 years so she always includes bees in her classroom decorations.

  18. I'm a rabid (oops...TMI?) fan and follower, too. I love, love, love CSN. I have lusted after the likes of those darling little bee glasses for a very long time. They would be perfect for a lovely early evening aperitif!

  19. We are moving to Cali at the end of the month so I would definitely put it towards some home decor for our new little beach pad. I'm a follower - obvs.

  20. I love, love, love the bee glasses.
