Just In Time For Summer: A Giveaway!

62 comments:
Greetings from
  Catalina Island!  
Isn't technology amazing.  I was able to log on and do this post today from a boat in Avalon Harbor in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.   
I love this! 
 And hey guess what!  
I'm giving away one of these great pillows!
I purchased these last summer for our boat.  They are designed by Thomas Paul.  
The graphics are huge seaside inspired plants and sea life. 
He also does great rugs.  
CSN stores has various sites for sofas, gardens and household items but you can purchase these from the site allmodern.com.  
Or....You can get one for free just in time for summer. 

Just leave a comment on this post and follow along with me on my bloggy adventures.....and the winner will receive a gift certificate for $85 dollars which is the cost of one of these great pillows.
I promise I will use the "techie winner chooser device" this time instead of the fishbowl technique.  
Only one entry per person and the winner will be announced on Monday, May 24th.
If you win you can buy anything you might want on any of their sites.   But I gotta say, these are really great.  
They are 100% linen and down filled and a big 24" square.  
The colors reverse on the back so you can use them in a variety of ways.
Pretty fun stuff

Smile.... its almost Summer

  15. At first I thought we might be winning a trip to Catalina! I love it there. But, we were on one of those Cruise ships, not a wonderful boat like you have, when I visited. I simply must have one of those pillows. I see a BUG on one of them! I am a bug trapper for the Agriculture Dept. this summer. Wouldn't that be just great? A bug pillow for a bug trapper???? Anyway, it's worth a try. You can't win if you don't play.

  40. Oh Kelley!!! These are beautiful! Please enter me in your contest! Love the photo with the orange tulips - you know those are my favorite. I was telling Scott yesterday I want a boat ... he laughed at me! :( I guess they're not nearly as pratical where 1/2 of the year the lakes are frozen.

  42. What fun you must be having and how wonderful you shared with us! A give away is a nice distraction from feeling every muscle in my body that aches right now. I was so inspired by the photos of your yard that I found myself working past dark last night. I thought it was sane because I could still hear the birds chirp. It wasn't until my husband peered out a window and turned on the lights that I realized the birds had long retired and it was just me with thoughts of your garden. Thank you for the inspiration!

  43. Hi EVERYONE! Thank you for leaving all the comments and so glad you wanted to enter. The pillows are great but you can pick any thing you need if you win!

Maybe in 6 more months! ha ha
