Another Giveaway: This Time YOU Choose

 This giveaway is over- Congratulations, Cindy in WV!!  See here.


Remember back a few months when CSN Stores helped me give away two hand blenders?  Wasn't that fun?  Well, those nice folks emailed me the other week and offered to help with another giveaway.

At first I thought I'd do a little poll in the right hand column asking you all what you'd like to win, thinking that I needed to choose an item again to give away.  NOT the case.  This time, as a way to promote their 200+  on line stores, including their lighting store, CSN Stores is giving away...are you ready...really, you're ready?

A $60 e-gift card that you can use...are you ready...really, you're ready?  On ANY of their 200 + websites.  It's a shopping spree, I tell you!

Here are only a handful of things you could choose to spend your $60 on IF you win....

Can you tell I like neutral colors?  They do sell items in brighter colors.  I promise.

How to Enter:  The instructions this time are two-fold, so pay close attention!

1) You need to hop on over to CSN's lighting store here and find a piece of lighting you would love to have in (or outside of) your home.  Then, come back to this post and leave me a comment telling me about the lighting item you love.  One entry per household and per person.  If you comment anonymously, leave me some initials for identification purposes.  Please keep reading....

2)  This is the new part. Some blogs, in an attempt to gain new followers, ask you to "follow" their blog for an extra entry.  Personally, I don't like that.  I want you to read my blog because you like it, not because you want to enter a giveaway.  Some blogs offer multiple entries for giveaways if you blog about their giveaway to give the company (and themselves) more exposure.  I don't like that either.  What if you don't have a blog?  I want everyone to have an equal chance at winning, so everyone enters only once.  But, I do want to generate some traffic for the nice people at CSN Stores since they were so kind as to initiate this giveaway.  SO....

We're going to use the honor system here and as a part of your entry, please email the link to this giveaway to at least one other person- your best friend, your mom, your sister, neighbor, whomever.  Choose one person that you'd love to see win this $60 e-gift certificate and tell them about it.  That's it!

I'll randomly choose one lucky winner sometime on Friday.  Happy Tuesday and good luck!

  1. My husband is looking for ceiling fans for his shop right now. So that's the section I concentrated on. I think I like their Fanimation Zonix in Satin Nickel. Simple. Very nice.

    Thanks to you and to CSN!


  2. I'd pick the basix 26" five light chandelier for my dining room!

  3. Hello Thy hand, this is my first time posting on your blog, but I have been following your blog for about two months now and LOVE it. Thanks for all your hard work in keeping us well informed on the how-to of what you do. I am inspired by what you do lovingly for your family and their physical and spiritual health.

    Now, for the entry I loved the Westinghouse Solar Lighting - H07428 850 000 - 7 Piece Snowflake Solar Light Set. I know it's a bit early to be thinking snowflakes, but my 5 year old little boy LOVES snow and lights so I think he'd be in love with them. Good luck to everyone who enters :)


  4. Cool giveaway! I like this light:

    Pacific Coast Lighting - 85-2172-22 - Gallery Brompton Place Floor Lamp Bronze Tiger with Copper

    And I will e-mail a friend or two . . .

  8. long time lurker and newbie canner. thought id jump in on this

    my fav is the Monte Carlo Fan Company - 3TF24BS - 24" Micro Ceiling Fan in Brushed Steel. It would look nice in my office :)

  11. i would love to have the George Kovacs - P055-077 - Mercury Small Tear Drop Table Lamp.


  12. Wow! I missed the last giveaway, so I am new to CSN...their selection is overwhelming! The Jonathan Adler Meurice pendant lamp caught my eye...it would be nice over our little dining area.

    As for the e-mail, I am sending a link to my sister...she's a college student, so a gift card in any amount to anywhere is a big help for her!

    Thank you!

  13. I've been looking for some solar lights for outside so I think I'd go with the GamaSonic - GS-29 - Solar Spot Light - Set of 2.

  14. Hi! I've been reading your blog for several months now, but have never posted a comment. I LOVE the posts about your garden and canning...we have a garden now, but I haven't tried canning yet. One day!
    Anyway, I had a hard time deciding on the lighting! I've been looking for a cool night light for my son's room and thought an illuminated globe would fit the bill. So, I would go with either the Columbus - 562612QE - Terra Children's Globe - 10" Diameter or the Replogle - 13076 - Constellation Globe. Thanks for the chance to win!


  15. I love this one: Kichler - 15402OZ - Oak Trail Outdoor Nine Candle Chandelier! I would love it out on the porch!

  16. I think the Jubilee Collection - 7037 - Five Light Stacked Glass Ball Chandelier in White is super cute

  21. I like the Kichler - 3752NI - Family Spaces Three Light Incandescent Semi-Flush Mount in Brushed Nickel.

  29. CSN is new to me tooo!

    I'm going for practical (instead of crazy CUTE!!!) but my under-the-cabinet lights in my kitchen are constantly going caput on me....so I'm going with the American Lighting LLC - 018-0001 - Premium Grade Rope Light Kit. Not fancy or exciting...well, quite exciting because I'll no longer be GRIPING about my lack of lighting as I'm cooking/canning/preserving/etc. :o)

    I'm also emailing my friend, Ali, who LOVES, LOVES, LOVES your site. I just "introduced" her to you last week and she's been reading tons from AWHILE back. :o)

    *fingers crossed!*

  30. I would love the Sussex collection 35" wide Bathroom Light Fixture for my BR which we need to redo. PJM

  31. I would choose the piano lamp. My husband and so far three kids all play piano and I would love to have a piano lamp.

    Robert Abbey - L387 - Abbey Bronze Piano Lamp in Victorian Bronze

    I also e-mailed your link to my sister who is just beginning in the blogging world herself.

  32. I would choose the Minka Lavery - 1862-66 - Iconic Kitchen Island Light. We don't have a kitchen island, but I think it would look great over our dining room table.

  33. We love arts and crafts style! Quoizel - QJ6781TR - Glenhaven Two Light Table Lamp in Teco Rossa. I'll email my lovely mother.

  34. I like the GamaSonic - GS-63 - GS-63 Solar Umbrella!

  35. I like this one: http://www.csnlighting.com/Kichler-5104OLZ-5104OLZ-5104OLZ-KI2967.html

  36. I think the
    Minka Ambience - 20710-625 - Transitional Floor Lamp in Metropolitan Cherry
    would make a nice reading lamp for my living room. How nice to read without turning on the overhead lighting!
