CSN Giveaway...$85 Gift Certificate!

Today I woke up with a wicked sore throat (the worst kind that burns when you swallow) and achy bones.  Attempts to get out of bed were short-lived.  I've been around long enough to know you have to sleep these bad boys off, so rather than spend the day working I laid in bed zooming in and out of sleep dreaming about modern duvet covers while Prince Caspian played softly in the background. Waking up is hard to do...


At the end of it all I've come to the delusion conclusion that I'd like to be Lucy Pevensie - escape through a wardrobe to a magical land where you roll in the grass, hug, ride on the back of, have the best talks with and get saved by the best Lion ever.  I love cats.

Thankfully the people at CSN live in the land of reality with the rest of us.  They have offered to brighten our January days with a RAD giveaway of an $85 Gift Certificate.  Girls CSN is the best - I got an amazing Bodum Teapot and Le Creuset Kettle (yes I'm a pre-term granny and proud of it) just before Christmas and they were delivered in record time.  And if you want that modern duvet cover they have those, too!  So here's the scoop and let's get this thing started:

THE DETAILS
*This giveaway is open to all U.S., Canadian readers (Overseas readers I'm sorry - they don't deliver to you, but I will have another giveaway to include you in soon).  The entry period will run through 11:59pm PST Tuesday, January 18, 2011 and the winner (selected via random drawing) will be announced on Wednesday, January 19, 2011.

HOW TO ENTER
*For one entry just make sure you're a follower of this free bird via Google Reader, and let me know in your comment on this post that you've done so.

*For an additional entry  you can blog or tweet about the giveaway and leave a separate comment.

Good luck everyone!! Any thoughts on what you might get if you win?

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well! On the other hand, if I could be sick for a few days in exchange for being Lucy, I would seriously consider it. She was hands down my favorite Narnia character. Susan was way too uptight.

And thank you for prompting me into following you on the Google-I never remember to do it, and I'm so glad I am!

Hope the sore throat goes away fast! I had to nurse mine while travelling and only some good old antibiotics chased it away.

Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net) may be another solution to sore throat. i know a lot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore throat. Hope you are getting well soon!!!
