A who-can-say-no-to-$40 giveaway

Comments closed. Stay tuned for the winner!

When Ashley from CSN contacted me about doing another giveaway, I was a little surprised. I thought my 86 questions last time would have scared them away for good. Even more surprising...me? again?? really??? I didn't have to think long before emailing her back saying I would be very interested,thank you very much. After all, it's not everyday someone asks if you'd like to choose any item from 200+ stores for free. The real question was what would I pick? I deliberated, debated and finally choose the Julia Frosted Butterfly Mirror. Isn't it pretty?!

I had a difficult time deciding whether to pick an item to keep in my Hope Chest, or something to use in my soon-to-be redecorated bedroom. I knew when I saw this mirror that I could kill the Hope Chest/bedroom bird with one stone. I can use it now and in my own house someday.
It was so fun opening the box when I got home from babysitting today! When I finally got all the bubble-wrap off, they package very carefully, I immediately loved it. The butterflies are so pretty and dainty! Andrew was here when I opened it and gave his own unsolicited review{and I quote}, "well, I can see myself." That would be the main quality when looking in a mirror. It's slightly smaller than I was expecting but that's completely my fault. I read the dimensions but used the ruler in my head instead of a real ruler. You'd think I'd know by now that never works.

And how does this effect you? One of you charming, lovely people will win a $40 gift certificate to buy whatever you'd like from CSN.

Mandatory entry~ poke around CSN then tell me what you'd buy{I know this isn't creative,but I couldn't think of anything better. My apologies.}
