Did Someone Say Giveaway?

I am thrilled to be giving away a $70 gift certificate to CSN Stores.  Known for everything from wall sconces and rugs, to furniture and tableware, CSN Stores has over 200 online stores to choose from.  And because they are an on-line only retailer (with no overhead!), their prices are considerably lower than many of their competitors.

I really like their mirror selection, their Le Creuset stock, and their ubiquitous koi pitchers, but I especially love CSN’s selection of rugs:

{Courtyard Indoor/Outdoor Rug}

{Sawgrass Mills Tribecca Indoor/Outdoor Rug}

{Fallon Ivory/Golden Brown Contemporary Rug}

{Chocolate/Ivory Dhurrie}

To enter to win the $70 gift certificate to CSN Stores, you must: be a U.S. or Canadian resident, be a follower of Spark! and leave a comment on this post.

If you blog about this giveaway, or post this link on Facebook or Twitter, you may leave a second comment and be entered again!

The giveaway ends at midnight EST on Friday, July 9, 2010.  I will randomly chose the winner using Random.org.  Good luck!!

Giveaway: Traveling Savannah, A Girl’s Guide!

Today I am giving away a book all about my favorite city in the world: Savannah! 

The author, a native Savannahian (and my friend and colleague), Meredith Gaunce, has written an absolutely delightful book geared towards fun-loving women about great restaurants, shops, spas and more that are “off the beaten tourist path.”   Did you know that Savannah was the 3rd most popular U.S. city for ladies trips in 2009?!

The illustrations by Erin Salzer Hanna are absolutely stunning.  I love this rendering below of the UH-MAZE-ING cookie shop: Two Smart Cookies. 


This gal did her research — I lived in Savannah for 4 years and came across some new places that I have never even heard of!  Although I won’t give too much away, the book covers all of my favorites in Savannah, most especially The Tea Room, Soho South Cafe and the fabulous boutique, Bleu Belle. 

You can only buy the book online (go check out the website) and at local Savannah bookstores, but lucky for you, you can win this awesome girls guide by being a follower of Spark! and leaving a comment below.  If you mention the giveaway on your blog, Facebook or Twitter, leave another comment, and you will be entered twice!  The giveaway closes on Friday, May 21st at midnight EST, and the winner will be chosen at random and announced on Saturday, May 22nd. 

Thanks so much to Meredith Gaunce and good luck  y’all!
