I've never shopped CSN before. I'll have to take a look. I love to shop online and spend money, though! I'd love to win the chance for an awesome new freebie. I'm a follower :)

How fun! I would buy new bath towels if I won! Of course I am a follower...

Kristy said...

Wow, so many good things to pick from! You don't know this about it me, but I'm famous (possible infamous?) for not being able to pick one favorite of anything. So I would buy anything in the baby section because my husband and I are hoping/praying to start our family this year! And anything in there would be beyond helpful for us!

Good Morning What a Wonderful Giveaway......well I have a comforter set marked at CSN. I have been online dreaming of things to purchase and decorate my little home with. So please toss my name in that hat. Happy New Year to you

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

What a wonderful giveaway - I am not too familiar with CSN, but I have heard great things about it. I love the bag you show, and could use some new sheets, a lamp or perhaps a duvet cover.
Thanks for offering this giveaway - I am a follower already.

What a great site CSN is.
I have a few items that I would love to purchase this year for my home, one of them is some new vanity lights for the bathrooms.

Janean said...

my first trip to CSN and saw lots of fab things, like a red wagon to pull small children in, pets or flowers...or maybe a laundry sink...or... :)

big hugs!

Vee said...

Morning! I say the same thing at every CSN giveaway...I'm in the market for some new sheets since Santa didn't come through on that point. He did so well on others, though, that I'm not holding a grudge. Yes, I am a follower!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Alright, another csn giveaway. Not sure what I would get, but I will find something.

Donnie said...

I love CSN Diane and am still waiting to get a LeCrueset Dutch oven. Maybe this time...lol...I'm a definite follower.

ShirleyC said...

First of all - Bless you for having a one comment giveaway!

I love CSN. I bought a set of sheets from there, and they are wonderful. If I won, I would order a set for my guest bedroom for when my grandson sleeps over. They just feel so comfy and warm.

Creative Breathing said...

I loved your post about your Thomasville dresser. It is absolutely beautiful! I remember when my parents were newly married and chose all their Heritage furniture from NC. It was all so beautiful. I wish I had it still. Your rose vase with bird is so lovely, I hope if found its way to another special spot! Have a lovely day! Elizabeth

Shellbelle said...

Oh my goodness, they have so many goodies, it's hard to choose. I've had my eye on some Pflazgraft dishes they carry and this would just about cover them! BUT, I also saw a small dresser top mirror that someone else got and just loved it. Hmmm…which one to choose if I should be the lucky winner.

Great way to start the New Year!

Thanks for the awesome give away, Diane! I have purchased from CSN before and their customer service and free shipping are definitely first rate!

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I haven't shopped CSN yet, so I'd love to win to try them out. In general, I don't order online unless I know the quality of the products in person, so I keep waiting and hoping to win a giveaway.

Not sure what I'd buy, but I have been thinking of a quilt or throw type blanket for the end of my bed.
