Good morning! Good giveaway!

Oh, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the coffee is brewing, and it's a giveaway day!

BUT perhaps the most important thing is...

The dog got a bath yesterday so he is not interrupting my happy morning with weiner dog smelliness.

AND...

AND...

I'm excited.

Because now, officially, PW has nothing on me because I get to do a giveaway for a Le Creuset pan!
OK.

It's not the super-duper heavy ones that feel like you are lifting a pan filled with bricks...but it is awesome AND it comes in great colors.

CSN Stores is an on-line mall with over 200 stores and the sweet lady that e-mailed me said I could pick what caught my eye with my giveaway budget.

She sent me links to quite a few of their great stories including one for for Kids Beds and for some of their kitchen and gardening stores.

Before I started dreaming and drooling over the kitchen stores, I spent quite a bit of time looking at daybeds on Kids Beds site because I have been thinking I need to get one. When our Grands spend the night we don't have enough sleeping space anymore and I think a daybed would be a great choice. They have some really cool looking ones but you probably don't really care about that do you?

You just want to know how to win the pan.

OK, OK!

So here's the skinny on the giveaway.

You can earn 3 chances to win a cool 6 quart Le Creuset stock pot in your choice of kiwi (shown), cobalt, black onyx, white, caribbean, cherry, dune or dijon. Click here to see all the color choices.

Chance number 1. You must be a follower of this blog. Just tell me you are!

Chance number 2. Please click here and tell me which kids bed you would choose from this great site.

Chance number 3. Show this giveaway in a link on your blog and list the link in a third comment.

Winner will be selected using my friend, Mr. Random Org on Wednesday March 31.

AND...

since I've got my giveaway game on there will be two more Easter-ish giveaways on Saturday and Sunday.

But, be warned, there are jokes and riddles involved.

Mwahahahaha! (evil laugh)

And just to get you in the mood...

How does the Easter Bunny keep his coat looking so nice?

...

...

ummm.... yea....that would be HARE SPRAY!

...

I just crack myself up sometimes!

Good luck on the giveaway.

And just because it's Friday...

SIGH...

Oh, and here's another giveaway for some Rachel Ray Pans!

Being a retro blogger, I have to go with the car bed! Even though I'm a girl I've always wanted one. I'll blog about the contest later at Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing

I'm already a follower and just know that Kiwi and Pistachio is my kitchen color - things we picked out for our wedding registry were all that color.

Very cool!

Jenny said...

I'm a follower who loves your blog!

Jenny said...

Our two year old has the South Shore Newbury Collection Mates Bed Box in Blueberry! We love it!

Nadeen said...

MommyLovesStilettos said...

My kids would totally love the tent beds!

Andrea said...

I'd be silly not to follow you Miss Jenny. This is a great giveaway! I need one of those pots to make my popcorn in! I'd totally choose the carribean. I just told my hubby I wanted to redo the kitchen in aqua and red! It would be a nice addition!

Andrea said...

If money was no object, I would get my girls the dollhouse bunk bed! How cute is that? They've been asking for a bunk bed. Of course, I know they would fight over who gets to sleep on top!

Nadeen said...

..and my blog is picking up the pace and I posted about it but I don't know how to link back. sigh.

Michele {The Scrap Shoppe} said...

I'm a follower! I relish your sense of humor. Its much like my own. Bwaaahaahaahaahaa!

Michele {The Scrap Shoppe} said...

It won't be long before we need a toddler bed, and although its kind of high off the ground for a starter bed, I'm really digging the tent beds. How cool are those??

The Wilson's said...

I'm a follower!

The Wilson's said...

I would choose the bookcase headboard bed so the kids can stash all their secret stuff!

mub said...

I'm pretty sure everything I cook will taste better in the dijon colored pan. Quite sure, actually.

Stereos and Souffles said...

I'm a follower and that cobalt is calling my name!

Mary Ellen said...

Why of course I am a follower!

The Muse said...

oh i am sure whomever wins that pan will love it! that name seems to be heavily used in my beloved's kitchen :)he opted for the blues and reds.

mmm yes a special bed for the grandkids, one must have that!

although i am prone to overdoing for the grand kids...it is hard to spend mega bucks or mini mega bucks on a stylized fun bed and yet those tent beds do look like they have the best of both worlds and can convert to a more "grown up" style as the gkids grow.

i vote for the tent! (well, what muse wouldn't?) lol

Mary Ellen said...

South Shore Summer Breeze Mates Bed Box is it for me=- I love all the storage under the bed!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Congratulations to the winner!!!

Husband and 'resident chef' loves the ones he has... Le Creuset I mean.

Red Couch Recipes said...

Hi Jenny, I am a follower of your blog and I would love a cherry one!

Red Couch Recipes said...

I think, if you have any boy grandkids, you should go for the G.I. bed that is like a tent. When I was a kid, I would have liked to snuggle up with a book under the tent. Joni

Mary Ellen said...

I am a follower.

I want kiwi, so I can be just like you.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You have to get the loft bed for the grands.
If not, then you are not cool. :)
Ok, maybe you will still be cool, but if you get the loft bed, you will be Tres' Cool!!!

Linda said...

entry#3 - I put your giveaway on my sidebar with a photo of my Le Creuset pan but I don't mind others drooling over it. http://ljm-alacarte.blogspot.com/

My name is PJ. said...

If I was you, I'd get bunk beds (there's nothing like stacking up your Grands) or the Captain's bed if those drawers can be replaced with a trundle bed.

If I was me, I just bought 2 brand new beds.....and that made a heck of a lot of sense.

I follow you....because you keep twisting my arm out of its socket. You can ease up on the grip. Really. Any time now. I promise to keep following you. Honest. I swear on the music of Karen and Richard Carpenter...or was that Judas Priest?

Paula said...

of course I'm a follower Jenny...I'd follow you anywhere!
ummm, did you catch my post on how old my cookware is??

Vicki said...

Amy said...

I love captains beds, so I would pick Tradewins Echo Falls Twin Captain's Bed in Rosewood.

I would pick this bed...just like MR. RANDOM Generator is going to PICK ME to win this giveaway!!

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Oh my....there were loads of really cute girlie beds, but since I have a little grandson, I'd better go with something more masculine. I love the Dufur full loft bed in black. He'd LOVE it. His own little office. Perfect.

Warm blessings,
Spencer

The Summer Breeze Mates Bed Box is nice because it has the storage under it. I wish it came in a nice wood color, though, and not just white. I am looking at the bunk beds for my own boys.

definitely the Wildon Home Twin Lakes Canopy Bed in White! muskratholler at gmail dot com

Megan said...

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny...you can not make me pick a bed and not tell me the motif of the room nor the size of the room? Some of the beds I liked were kind of large. others I felt needed a specific type of decor to go with.

REMEMBER...your talking to a perfectionist here!

If I MUST choose...without knowing more details...I choose the Hillsdale Lindsey bed. It looks old...and I like old things. Hillsdale is the name of my grandparents town and it's near and dear to me. And I know someone named Lindsey...although spelled Lyndsey and she's the cat's meow.

And I'm a dog person!

Oh yes...and I'm a follower. :-)
