decorative pillow giveaway!

As if there were another use for lots of pillows besides decorative?  Sorry for the unimaginative post title!  But as you know, I've had pillows on the brain lately!

I was so excited to be contacted by CSN stores to do a giveaway!  You see, I LOVE giveaways.  And I've been very lucky the last year or so, winning a lot of cool things fabric.  I'm really happy to have the opportunity to give something back!  I hope to do more of these in the future, to repay some of the goodness from which I've benefited.

CSN stores is a conglomerate of many product specific web stores.  They sell everything from bar stools to jewelry boxes to bunk beds (which I need!).  Cookware (Le Creuset, which I love!) and bedding too!  You can see a list of all of their stores HERE.

I was looking through the bedding section, because I like bedding (not that I need any....) and found this:

and this:
and this: (a king duvet cover + 2 shams for $49??!)


And don't forget decorative pillows!
How about this lovely number in turquoise (my favorite color)?

or pink + bird silhouettes?  Love.
 Or what about a little more modern piece in my favorite green? dark or milk chocolate? or orange?

the shipping date on this pillow is a couple weeks out though, but it was too cute!

So today - CSN stores is offering one of my lovely readers the choice of one of the three pillows above!  (And on the 3rd one you can choose which color you want.)

Giveaway will close Thursday morning 8 AM EST/EDT (whichever one is correct!) and I will announce the winner later that day.

You have several ways to earn entries.
1. Leave me a comment, tell me something interesting about yourself.
2. Blog/Facebook/Twitter about this giveaway, linking back here and leave a SEPARATE comment (for each mention) telling me you did so.

Easy enough?  So you can have up to 4 entries (one comment per entry will make me and you happy people!) Don't forget to leave me contact info if your email isn't already linked to your profile (here's instructions and reasoning why you should link up your email.)
Open to U.S. and Canadian residents.

Good Luck!!

Something you may not know about me: Did you know I was on the diving team in high school? Because I was. And I was pretty darn good at it, if I do say so myself. :)

Barb said...

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh love the pillows, especially the green one.

Something interesting....is...I live in Amerika Samoa...have survived one large earthquake, tsunami and recently a small hurricane......don't you think I deserve a nice pillow to lay this weary head down (worth a try).

Barb said...

I blogged about your giveaway, just look on the left sidebar.

Color [Me] Happy said...

Something you might not know about me is that I use a wheelchair and can't use my legs but am hellbent on learning how to sew anyways.

Pokey said...

Hi Amy, I'll join in the fun. How interesting this is, I don't know, but being an Air Force Brat, I attended 19 schools in my twelve years of school. I loved the travel as a kid, but missed out on the everyday life that some folks have with cousins and grandparents.
Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Kelly O. said...

Hi Amy,

Diane said...

Interesting? Hmm... I am going to Honduras this summer with my family on a mission trip.

The Tripp Family said...

something interesting about myself? All my friends think it's funny when they find out I'm from RI... then they ask me to do the accent. Which I have to make up since somehow, I never got one growing up. And Kelly O. just inspired me to go eat some cookies for breakfast. Yum.

Hmmm, something interesting about me,,,,I started quilting to keep my mind off my husband being in Iraq....my friend dragged me to her quilt group and now after his second deployment to Iraq, I wonder whatever did I do with my free time before.....Quilting has turned into my therapy/passion.

Aunt Spicy said...

Something interesting about me..I cry anytime someone wins a medal at the olympics. doesn't matter what country...I still think how proud their family must be and that makes me a little misty eyed.

Aunt Spicy said...

I just "buzz'd" about the giveaway (since I dont use twitter)

My husband just built a semi-professional ping pong table and put it in our main living area. Everyone in the family plays, but we have tournaments after we put the kiddos to bed, it's so so fun!

I love the green pillow- that color is my fave (at the moment!).
I'm a twin, and when we were in the 7th grade, we entered a contest for least alike, only to find out that lots of twins look a lot more different than we do!

Those pillows are gorgeous and I love the turquoise one!!!

Candied Fabrics said...

Yup - that green pillow ROCKS my WORLD.

Hmm...something weird about myself...that isn't already completely obvious from my blog??? How 'bout this - I sometimes make my bed minutes before I climb back in!

Candied Fabrics said...

Tweeted - check!

Candied Fabrics said...

Facebooked - check!

Mary said...

That green pillow is the PERFECT color to match my brand new bedding in my new college apartment :)

Something interesting about me, (Hi, I'm Mary, btw) is that I find so many awesome blogs through Candy (^^Candied Fabrics), who is a professor of mine, my boss's wife, my friend, and my occasional employer!

Dee said...

My favorite curse word of choice is "frack" from Battlestar Galactica. LOL

I said it today after driving 45, intense, slick, nasty minutes to co-op only to walk in and have them tell me they were cancelling. I said it in front of little kids too. Thinkin' I might need a blanket apology to the group via email! LOL
The green pillow is the cutest.

Sew It UP! said...

The turquoise pillow is just lovely!

Something interesting about me.... I learned how to drive when I was 12. My grandfather taught me.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Itaya said...

Something interesting about me... I was walking at 8 months old. I think that's supposed to be early. :) I'm an artist and love the color of green in the third pillow! That is the one I would choose for sure.

Itaya said...

something interesting...ummm, i worked out every morning in january with my new wii fitness trainer and gained 2lbs that month...maybe that is more depressing than interesting...

mom2three said...

What a great contest!
Something interesting about me- I never cook with a recipe. Rarely quilt with a pattern. I go through life very free form. BUT, my closet is organized by color and season, and my spices are alphabetized. Guess I'm a little weird....

Stephanie said...

What a FUN giveaway - I am in love with that little birdy pillow! Interesting..hmm...I am one of the few people I know who absolutely loves snow and cold weather - I would love winter year-round!!

Liz B. said...

These pillows are gorgeous! Something interesting about me: I am visiting my grandmother in Rhode Island this week. She has just gotten online, and I am teaching her all about email and Facebook (which she calls "the face"). It is an easier job than I imagined as she takes to technology far better than most 85 year olds.
Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

I lived in Russia for a year and accidentally got engaged to a guy I knew was in the mafia. (When you KNOW he is in the mafia, it makes it much harder to say, "OH, how sweet. No thanks.)

Alissa said...

It's interesting that I like turquoise too!

Carolyn S. said...

We recently bought a second home because we are being transferred to Michigan. I am working as hard as I can to buy/find furniture, bedding to outfit our new home. Pillows would certainly be a wonderful addition to the decor. I need INSPIRATION!

One interesting thing about me...I want a tattoo but don't have any because I know I wouldn't be able to stop at just one. And then my kids would be embarrassed because I'd be the tattooed lady.

stitchsister said...

I just blogged about your sweet pillow giveaway. Thanks for the contest!

Alicia said...

Those are some cute pillows, but I am in love with the green bedding. I suppose on the off chance that I win, I will have to explain to the husband why yet another box is arriving...
